XD Falcon for my first car
Well, heres my situation.
My uncle has an old XD Falcon which he is willing to give to me for nothing, i want to drop a 302...well...lets face it...i want a 351, but i'm gonna go for a 302. now this XD already has gas, and i'm thinking of putting the V8 on Gas, i understand that there is an apparent loss in power, about 20%, but as a daily driver that wont be a big problem, but what would need to be done to the springs to make it legal.
the only problem is that your not supposed to have a V8 as your first car.....(or so i've heard)...but i suppose that i could go with the stock inline 6.
The car doesn't have power steering, and i am wondering weather it would be possible to put a pump and box in there, i know its possible, but is it worth the hassle???
any ideas or surggestions would be appreciated
