EB questions

Gday people. Im thinking of selling my XA and buying a 6 cylinder EB Falcon. Ive got a few questions to ask about the EB.
1. How much can i expect to pay for an EB in good condition?
2. Roughly how much power would a 6 cylinder EB have with extractors exhaust, Crow Cams cam, chip, springs and leads package, cold air intake, K&N filter put out?
3. Again roughly what would this run on the quater?
Thanks Chris

Re: EB questions

Go for a 4ltr series 2. Series 1 was the 3.9ltr... Should be able to get a GLi for 3-3,500 in good condition. Or you can buy my XR6 for 6,500

What about putting the engine and trans out of a wrecked EB in to the XA???

Re: EB questions

hahahahaha if i was gonna put an EB engine and trans into the XA i would rather spend the money on a 351 Clevo and C4. I cant decide what to do either to keep the XA or go the EB! The XA's dosent have much balls but it turns heads.

Re: EB questions

Yeh keep the XA and stick an 8 into it....ya know ya wanna.....
Tho the EBs are bloody quick, those mods will see some decent times - ask qwikcorty I think he was getting 14.7 or something. Though he'd probably have a better cam than Crow stage 2
Definitely you'd want a manual.
