Thumbs up ghentboy's EF

Hey,

Here is my EF Falcon.

Ive had it since i got my licence. Lowered it (pedders sportz rider) and put the Tickford XR ( TOYO Proxes T1-s 225x50 tyres) wheels on it the day i bought it.

Other mods (before last week) were

custom 2.25' sports exhaust with one straight through muffler on it.
Shaved the head down to minimum (for compression)
Windows are tinted 20% F1 tint
K+N air filter
...

It blew another head gasket so i decided to do a re build.

So i am nearly finished that.

Ive got the Crow performance cam, with the timing gear kit
having block + head bored out and 20thou oversized silicon ACL pistons.

will be interesting to see how it goes

have a look in the market section. there was a XR6 engine there for sale. This would be a headstart for you with all those mods. Keep the other one 4 a spare!

I feel for ya with the blown gaskget... Had to replace mine less than a week after i bought it. Might be worth oversizing and polishing valves and ports, and getting set of extractors to let it breathe while your at it. How does the cam go, i'm thinkin of getting one later down the track.

Thumbs up

Yeah i have a set of genie extractors. They are quite good (u can sorta see them in the removing engine pics).

AS far as porting + polishing goes, i dont know if its really worth it, but ill let you know how the mild mods that i am actually doing turn out. Ill see if i cant get a dyno printout to post too =).
