Pursuit Ute eligibility

Does anyone know if the FPV Pursuit will be eligible for the V8 BRUtes series?
I checked the website and its a little short of detail.
Is it a controlled engine class? Or will the Ford boys be allowed to race their new toys?

Will they be able to run the new 5.4L motors?

And if so, which one?

And if not, when? As the AU utes will get old quickly.

If the Windsors were giving the Gen III a run, imagine what the 5.4L will do.

Windsors were hot, Gen III's detuned - all about parity.

They'll tweak each motor to ensure the class remains even.

Ummm no.

They where both tuned up putting out around 240 - 250kw.
And some ridiculous amount of mods done to make both cars even.

As for the BA it will not be able to be raced until 2004. A lot of development work to be done to get them both to the same level.

VU utes can have the front ends upgraded to VY speck or you can build a VY witch is essentially a VU with a different nose.

I'm guessing my 64 XM Pursuit 170 Ute wouldn't be a hot tip for the title then....

Cheers....... Tim

yep 240kw out of my old 170 sounded a bit strange thanks for clearing that up
