Perth FORD/Holden show

Hey you Perth Ford guys have any of you been or are going to the FORD V Holden show in Perth.?

APS is running the XR6T against the Supercharged LS1 in the dyno Comp, would be worth a look, and make sure you cheer for the might Ford badge.

From what I am told there was at least one LS1 commodore with a built engine and supercharger that went 545 hp at the tereads, the APS pahse III car (with stock engine) went 519 hp at the treads

Ah well there's always the next Ford V Holden show to try and even up the score.

Well Rod lets hope it's not far away before we see a nice FPV auto ute making 600 + hp at the treads maybe at the Melbourne Ford V Holden show in November 04.

I going to need an experienced test pilot for the beast, are you interested?
