thanks for the details guys, im very new to this game. I inherited the falcon off my dad, of which was an ex sydney taxi :) lucky the old man took care of it though!!!
It's actually a true testament to the thing though, 742,000km's on the original donk, hasn't even changed a head gasket!!! The thing should come out and be framed :)
So its time to go....it was blowing some smoke the other day it definately feels like its running on 5 or less cylinders. I have trouble keeping up with Excels!!! :)
I've sourced an XR6 engine (from the list in-fact), i wouldn't mind an XR8 engine though to be honest - is there much difference between the 8 and 6? about 20kw's?
Another question, after the transplant (which i take to be bolt out, bolt in) what needs to be done? ie. paperwork? engineers certificate? reporting to rta? etc etc?
many thanks in advance...
