I was thinking........

The AU2 T-Series front end on my red car, with the series 3 black bezel headlights, and the mesh grille blacked out.

Or AU3 T-Series full stop.

Now, I wonder how much Ford charge for the parts....







(I doubt I should ask :eek: :( )

I have been under the impression that you cannot get T series grilles/bumpers etc from ford unless you have actually got a T series...
I am not 100% certain of this, but I seem to remember reading it somewhere.

Last year when I was looking at getting into a new ute I asked about the TL50 nose on one. The sales man said that the dealer could fit one no probs. He just didn't want to know the cost.

Is all this engine work that keeps needing to be done costing you, or is it like warranty or something?

How many times has it been back now?

Whilst I'm pissed the car is always off the road, Herrods have covered ALL of it via warranty, including shipping the car when required, and a rental car this time around.

It's been back four times or something, but to be fair they came across issues that related to the cast iron head 220 engine spec. All 220 strokers they do now will include some of the changes they learnt on my engine (such as piston machining and head changes).

Mate, you cannot believe how much Rob and Ashley apologise every time I talk to them. It's sincere too. I could have got all mad and gnarly about it, but what can they really do? They are doing their best, and in the long run everyone will benefit.

Some of the later build cars are having no problems so I guess they can thank XR8 003694 for their good times!

Wait till you see what the build produces this time :nuts: :p . Laminge, hide in shame buddy cos you'll be sucking exhaust fumes next time around!

You're fairly confident there, Pete.

I'd like to see this race.

I wasn't that far behind with the old spec engine. So, doing some simple maths...... :D ;)

What sort of figures is it gunna have this time?
I'm guessing well into the 300s. But at the end of the day, talk is a waste of time. We'll have to see what the dyno says.

pete, you should be able to get a T-Series II or III bumper/grille from your ford dealer.

If you want prices and part numbers PM me. BTW they are cheaper than an AUII XR front.

Nah - the key part IMO. Must have the black ones - see my first post in this thread.
