query on XE falcon

my dad picked up an awesome XE this thing woulda been garaged its whole life easy

196,000 on clock (1982)
5speed :D and its reallly realllly smoooooooth
but only a 3.3L

now we dont really want to change it coz if u have a look at it, it all including the engine bay looks brannnnddd spanking new

now for now we were thinking to get extractors, exhaust, tinker with carby if not change it and maybe work on a different aqir intake setup but never really done bfor
also a lowering and a window tinting would be fit in there

Re: query on XE falcon

3.3's where pretty gutless compared to the 4.1's.

I suggest finding a decent 4.1 to drop in it... or even better yet... an 8!

Re: query on XE falcon

A mate had a 3.3 in a panel van, he used to get amazing fuel economy.

Re: query on XE falcon

stroke it.... u get to keep the same engine number

v8.... if you want more power, this is the way to go

any chance of getting pics?

We live in an imperfect world, but
there is no point in trying to make it perfect, because not everyone can be GREEK!

XE Fairmont Ghia... Silver/Grey Met over black, soon to be v8, cant wait till i get another v8, after 3 LONG HARD YEARS

Re: query on XE falcon

sounds like u picked up one nice xe falcon if it aint broke dont fix it. just drive it how it is and do some bolt on mods then when she starts playing up then consider other avenues.

Re: query on XE falcon

My 3.3 has 415k and still going strong, hasn't had any major problems, besides a few clutches etc.. the oil is still gold when it's changed. Motor is stock, i have no idea's for mods sorry but i'd be interested to hear what you decide to do. aaand if you ever get some pix i'd love to see, what colour?
