My mate and I are trying to get into the local drag scene around SA, and we want to show off some old school Ford muscle. It has come to my attention that due to the presence of a Holden plant and absence of Ford plant, this whole ****en state rides with the red army.
We have a 250ci X-Flow Inline 6 out of a cortina (don't ask me which model). We need to strip it down as it is old, so we wanted to make sure it was put together right. If any performance parts happen to land in the parts pile, we can't be held accountable
Does anyone have any suggestion how we can make this motor grunt?
I was considering ripping a MPFI system of an E-series and putting that on there. Is that possible (when I mean possible, I mean how hard/$$$). I don't have to worry much about computers and such, I'm redeveloping my own programmable system.
My main goal in all of this is to at least try and hold a candle to all my mates who drive VN's I know I'm working against a huge generation gap, but I can't afford a newer car, or to work up my V8.
Also, more generally, has anyone done one of these motors up b4? What kind of part am I looking at? Is there a lot of difference between building it up for carbie vs. doing it up for EFI?
Any help you can give me would help.
Fact 1: I drive a Ford, all my mates drive Holdens.
Fact 2: They all admit that I'm the smartest guy they know
Conclusion: Fords are better than Holdens CAUSE I SAY SO!!!
