Re: my XF fairmont ghia 351

Nice I have one too. I wish it was a ghia and that good looking.
Is yours engineered and legal? How did you go about it and what did it cost? I have yet to look into legalities yet.

Thanks bud
Dan

Re: my XF fairmont ghia 351

Nice work, Welcome to the FF!

Another question not raised by DansEdgli, how did you go with the calibration of the electronic speedo?

Re: my XF fairmont ghia 351

Welcome to the forums, yet another X series driver. You'll get to know everyone pretty quickly.

Is that the MMM kit?

I've never seen a front bar like that before, and I take you havn't got the rear bar.

Re: my XF fairmont ghia 351

My speedo stayed accurate. I used a C10 trans and the speedo gear remianed the same. I ran through one of those speed display things and it was perfect.
