No tail shaft problem.

Had problem with rear down force as I had less than a 1/4 tank of petrol.

Hell of alot of cabin noise after the 230 mark though

Hehehe I can see how that would be a problem, might just have to splurge on an All wheel drive falcon wagon to give you that extra height when they are released lol! ;) :D

first thing in my head when all the 4.6 part numbers started appearing on Fmc parts system!!
Is that just because of the mustang or because of something else I haven't heard about? ;)

No they're SOHC part numbers, for the new V8 explorer coming out in a couple of months.

Have you been to the Lincoln web site and check the engine on the Blackwood?? 5.4 litre dohc 32v. 230kw. would be an interesting motor for a falcon dont you think??

Up that by around 60 odd Kw, we all know us Aussies can make a V8 go better than the americans can ;) :D :D
