ps if anyone on here is looking to get out off a 5ltr fairlane or falcon and into an EF GHia ill swap as long as it isnt brown lol
Mate, it's not worth it as a straight swap! This is assuming that both cars (the NC or whatever V8 ford you look at, plus your EF Ghia) are in similar condition.
EF Ghia (albeit a six) is worth more than a V8 EB/NC. No wonder the dealer is keen to swap!
Try & sell the EF Ghia privately, and then purchase an EB/NC. You'll save a bit of coin this way.
With the standard 5.0, it's a pretty sleepy motor. Mine's standard, and it's great for 1/4 or 1/2 throttle, it's really grunty and effortless. But don't expect any crazy full-throttle action, your EF Ghia would be roughly the same in performance in this case. Having said that, getting the 5.0 to breathe would make a hell of a difference!
Hmm... Sell the EF, buy an EB/NC, spend the remaining $ you save on heads, intake & exhaust... w00t fast V8!
