5 litre 6-cyl

I was just at repco in Nunawading and this guy there, Ben, reckoned that he had got a 5 litre kit from the US for his 6-cyl EF falcon, he reckons that is was making 185rwkws, then he went on to say that with HIS custom extractors it will make 225rwkws. he sez that it was built by F1 in melbourne. he also said that he had to rechipped the computer to change the mixtures, which I would understand until I saw his car in the parking lot out the back and found it was on Gas!!!!!

now what I want to know is has anyone heard of these 5 litre kits??
according to my calculations it's not even phyiscally possible!! I also seriously doubt his rear wheel horsepower figures...

just a warning for anyone who comes across this guy, HE'S FULL OF SHIT!!!!

Re: 5 litre 6-cyl

A kit from the US for a EF Falcon 6 cyl for an engine they don't have there? Don't think so.

That should have tipped you off.

Re: 5 litre 6-cyl

I think he's an expert at masturbating his small penis

In the US or maybe Canada, thay made 5 litre sixes (well, 4.9) in Bronco's and F-series trucks. They're 300 cubic inches, maybe this bloke got excited and was gonna do a conversion....

Re: 5 litre 6-cyl

yeah I know, i was pretty sure that it was sold in the US....BUT the original falcon 6 that was in the XM was from the US and even the new falcon is a HEAVILY modified version of it...or so I've been told.

You show me a set of extractors that can add 40rwkw to a 6cyl and i'll show you a set with a turbo bolted to them.

The current 6 is a relative of the original 6 cyl. Falcon motor. All the starter motors fit!

First Falcon was an XK tho......

There was a 4.9 Litre (300 C.I.) "Cleveland" I6 manufactured in the United States a while ago. He might be getting confused with that?
