Re: help

Saw an article where a guy fitted a BA engine to an earlier E series falcon. He had to put a hole in the front of the bonnet to clear the front of the rocker cover. I think it was in a Performance Ford mag. He reckoned he had no choice because he couldn't get the engine low enough in the bay. I'm willing to bet you could get an ED XR6 motor and turbo it for a similar amount. I know they fit, I have one in my EA minus the turbo.
