falcon utes?

ey guys, i was just wondering if people can give me some info on falcon utes...As in the models and how much they approx weigh and things. I thought maybe pick up a cheap manual one with a kinda tired engine and do it up to beat some of the turbo lads. What model is the ef/el equivalent?

the XH is the equivelent to the EF/EL. they also come in the form of a 185KW XR8 as well. that should be a good start to getting some power.

Re: falcon utes?

How do they compare to the sedans? As in things like handling and weight?

Re: falcon utes?

pretty sure the weight of my XG 4.0 is 1350kg(thats whats on rego label) plus i've got 120litre gas tank so add another 100 od kgs. the XG is the same as an XF but with the ohc4.0 XH would weigh similar i'd reckon as a six the XH had front suspension from EF so rack and pinion steering and such but still had the XF rear tub.
my XE ute when fitted with 16" XR8 wheels handled as good as my EB XR6 i had, the XG feels as though it has softer springs and its an S pack( find out soon rego on wednesday)
