Hey guys just looking at what you guys think of my mates setup and what price you would be asking for it if he was to sell it.
This is all the info i have so any help would be greatly appreciated cheers.

EL inlet manfold - modified
EL Injectors
Extractors
VN Throttle Body - Modified
VN Airbox - Modified
Reprogrammed DELCO ECU
Medium Cam
Engine Rebuilt
EL Alloys with 4 new tyres
2 3/4 inch exhaust throughout
Toyota Supra 5 spd gearbox - Modified
EB XR8 LSD Diff
Long Range Fuel Tank
New Engine Mounts
Central Locking
Keyless Entry
2 Stage Immobiliser
Alarm

Cons
Speedo Cable Broken
Twisted Front Seats - need to be replaced
ECU needs to be tuned after the cam went in
LSD is getting tired.

Currently its doing 200RWHP - 142Kw (Has dyno sheet).

He has an eaton supercharger modified to go on but he hasnt done that yet.
Now what i am wanting to know is that good for a 6 Cylinder XE Fairmont ? Whats the RWKW for a stock XE Fairmont 4.1L
And also what should he do next to it power wise and what would be a good asking price for it.

Any help would be great thanks.

Here are some updated specs for you all.
The top list has been updated to match this one.

Pros:
Ford XE Fairmont 1983 or 4
EL Modified - Fuel Injection
250 x-flow
EL inlet manifold (modified)
EL injectors
Extractors
VN Throttle body (modified)
VN air box (modified)
Reprogrammed DELCO ECU
Medium CAM
It's not a holden
Engine rebuilt (no reciepts as I did it)
EL Alloys with 4 new tyres
200ish RWHP
2 Exhaust systems (1 for performance, one that is street legal)
Toyota Supra 5 speed gearbox (modified)
EB XR8 LSD Differential
Long range fuel tank
New engine mounts
It's not a commodore
Central Locking,
Alarm
Keyless Entry
2 Stage Immobiliser
Starts first time.
About $1000 of pedders suspension under it, and has been lowered.
142kw is before the cam went in, so it would be more now
The reason it has a lot of kws is the induction setup…… That is what makes it so good… :) It is basically a stock engine (except the cam)….

Cons:
Speedo cable broken - not much to fix.
Twisted front seats, need to be replaced. - change to race seats - $400 or standard ones are not much.
ECU needs to be tuned - $Unsure of cost.
It has a smaller clutch plate than can be fitted. When I rebuilt the engine I had to get a smaller one cos I ran out of $$$ and could not afford the proper size one. $350 bigger clutch.

LSD is getting tired. - $500 - 600 reco.
Paint job looks pretty dull - a real sleeper.
As the clutch is smaller the gear changes are a little crunchy.
No power steering or aircon as it lowers the power output :)

Reason for selling is to fund a boat, and clear some debts.

What you guys think ?

hey dude , a stock xe would be lucky to have 90kw at rear wheels
i have owned 3 modified xe\f falcons , loved em all but they cant cut it with
my ef2 ghia , although i did turn 36 this year , maybe i am getting soft, the e series are light years ahead of x series in every way , quicker ,uses less fuel
has air con and leather , you sound like me when i was a bit younger , check out how cheap e series are getting these days
