Re: what is new about the I6

No it wont be all alloy. As far as I know only the head has been tinkered with, as you mentioned before about the 24V head.
I presume if the next falcon sells really well, and ford Oz make a profit, then ford US would give us the green light for an all-alloy IL6 to be built in Geelong. If the flacion fails we will eiother have no falcon or some shitty V6 shit. we will just havet o take what they give us.
