My XC Falcon

Hi all,

Just thought I'd post a few pics of my pride and joy, my XC Falcon. Apart from panel and paint, trimming of seats, trans and diff, I put the rest together myself. Desktop dyno indicates it should put out about 428HP at the flywheel, so give or take 10% it should at least be in the high 300's. It's been off the road six years now, but is so close to being finished. Just need to find myself $2,500 for exhaust, door trims, rego and insurance (pretty hard when you're divorced with maintenance to pay).

Hope you like it.

Top notch XC there mikenicko, hope she's on the road and showing some muscle soon.
Weiand Excelerator manifold... Looks exactly like my old GT motor. 400 horses should be some fun.
