Hey I have decided to put a 250 2V im ny 64 falcon. I was wondering what i can do to the engine to give it a little more go nothing mental just so it cruises well but has the go to get me out of trouble if/when i need to. They came out with 170hp (127kw) so i'm thinking 180hp (135kw) would be enough. any help would be great.
Cheers Ben

My cousin had this exact combo in an XY sedan with a top loader, and for a 6 it went quite hard - was very unexpected!

I agree, thats the easy combo to do for easy power. You may have trouble with having a 14" air cleaner assembly because of the body struts.
See how you go anyway.

Hi,
these are a good motor but where they suffer is torque - mine's in a XB coupe on lpg so I'm asking a lot of it but its pretty good - they actually seem to have less torque than a non 2v motor but you might go better in an xm-p type shape (much lighter) - also keep to a manual gbox - would be sluggish with an auto....
