Wanna 6L Boss?

Havin a browse through CAPA's website and i see they have SHM blocks available for the Ford modular V8 engines up to 6L capacity.
They have been specifically designed stronger than standard for motorsport use, there is a whole list of upgrades on their website.
Looking at their price list it's about $9000 for a block.
Wackin one of these in ya falcon would get the jump on the Holden boys with their new 6L engines.
Would make an ideal building block for a new hipo falcon for Ford to build!

Re: Wanna 6L Boss?

actually 9000 is a bit pricey.

I think my pricing would be a bit better than that to AU.

Re: Wanna 6L Boss?

How would you go about getting such a block from the USA into Australia?

sea freight i'm guessing - what would this cost.

I'm curious not planning on doing it..

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Re: Wanna 6L Boss?

Um sea would be the cheapest. Contact people who bring containers in, companies advertise in unique cars and the likes. For an engine i would expect 1000 plus import taxes and tariffs. A whole 20' container should set you back $5000 au. You could fed ex it i've heard they are fairly cheap.

$9,000US = $12,400AUS + freight costs + taxes = too much.

Re: Wanna 6L Boss?

9k is alot too much i reckon. as for shipping containers you can get secondhand 'sealed' (meaning they are sea worthy and dont leak) for around the $2000AU mark, yours to own and keep....or sell.
