V8 XT Falcon..

Recently heaps of people I know have been upgrading their rides to newer models, and I too am thinking of possibly jumping on the bandwagon (but still keeping the xf.. i never want to sell it... hehe).

Now I've been told by many that the BA XR8 interiors arent all that flashy for what you pay extra and all that, and they rekon just get a V8 XT falcon and modify that a bit and it will produce similar power and still look nice.
Now ive seen one going around my area, and its very similar to what I want to do, and it looks horn! I'd get the v8 XT, in black, dumped on its guts, limo tints, 18" rims and nice slimline black plates ..etc.. it would look awesome i think.

So does anyone here know much about the XT's? Like does it come standard with power windows all round, or is the rear ones an option.. and also how does it perform with the v8 option? I know its not as powerful as the xr8 but with an exhaust and headers (if it needs it) im sure it will be more than enough grunt for me.. considering what im upgrading from :) Is it LSD or is there an option for it...etc!

So im entirely open to peoples suggestions, and ideas... let me have them please If anyones got any pics of 'modified' XT's..etc i'd be more than interested too.

Thanks guys and gals.

Re: V8 XT Falcon..

Best thing to do is go and have a look at a few, they sound pretty good with the exhaust and look good when dumped and limo tint.

I know a few guys at dealers if you want me to send you there way just let me know.



This ones a Fairmont , but you get the driift.

I know a bloke who has one, he is very happy with it although he did comment on the low redline & the savagery of the cutout!

yes the cutout is an absolute errr...pain in the neck! you are still powering on hard and then all of a sudden it dies! kills you in a drag if you accidentally nail it! i think its the same in all of the BAs though, well V8s anyway, not sure about the 6's

not like the old windsors / I6...but im sure someone has noused out a way around it by now

that fairmont is a very sweet ride indeed

If you think the XR8 interior is pretty plain I'd hate to know what you'd think of the XT's interior. LSD is an option.
