Hello fellow Ford freaks,
I recently bought a BA MkII Falcon XT SR, but this is no ordinary falcon. The Falcon was a dealer special order. It is fitted with a a 5.4 SOHC V8 and Tremec 5 Speed manual. What makes it unusual is that it's a SR Falcon and a V8. Which meant that I got the body kit, 17" Wheels, leather wheel, 6 Stacker and Sports IRS. When you add it all up, it's a great package. I know it's unfair to say it's a poor mans XR8, but in many ways it is, minus the badges and 30Nm torque. I see the new BF 5.4SOHC now has an extra 30Nm, and 10KW, mainly due to an extra knock sensor they say and more agressive ignition timing. Check the BF range and you won't find the manual option in the XT. Only the 6speed Automatic.
Is it possible to upgrade my BAMkII V8 to BF Specs?? Would it be just adding the knock sensor and flashing the computer?
I'd like to know.
