Ahh **** I was looking forward to that car being in the next issue! BUGGA! :o

Ohh well!

I was looking at some of the stuff on the Kostecki Engine Centre web site and those boys have some ipresive stuff on offer! Some of the clevos they offer sound like top pagages! :D

With so many great old Fords its hard to decide on the right car! I suppose the all weight roughly the same so performance wise there would not be a lot of difference!

gtho4 what car would be better for the following setup?

351 Clevo ~ 400hp
C4 or C6 tranny
9 inch diff with 3.77 or 4.11 gears (3.77-street, 4.11-drags)

An XC Fairmont Coupe or an XY Fairmont??????

also what time would this thing do down the quater?? 13's??

400hp Clevo should do less than 13's with the right set up.
I would go for a C4 Trans cause the C6 will swallow up some HP
4.11 gears 3500+ hi stall convertor at least 750 cfm Holley probably 850cfm.
XC coupe... they look awesome with 15x10 rear wheels :D :D
But speak to the KEC they will give you a more accurate combo. :D

If you watch The Motor Show, they had a small story on A1 Hi Performance about a month ago. At the end the story they started up the TE50. It is a blue TE50 and looks standard on the outside and even sounds standard.

Personally id go for the XY but thats just me or maybe its because i have 2 already.

But on a serious note have you guys ever thought about joining a car club because im part of PERTH CITY STREET MACHINE and it would be good to see you and ur cars around at the meetings, we also host Motorvation so we get alot of benefits.
