hey guys,

i'm thinking of getting a high k's car and modding it like crazy.... if i get one and give it a dev5 or ITS stage 5, will the engine give trouble? i'm just wondering because some falcons are going cheap and most have high k's, and i want to mod like f***

thanks for replies....

you could say almost, but not all the parts will be replaced..

just remember. its not only the engine that has done that many k's

trans, diff, bearings, stearng and suspension componants have all done the distance to.

Why? yeah bushes may have been replaced and suspension may have been done, but why is the run of the norm falcon gonna have lsd's & lowered springs and the like?

its do a complete engine rebuild with there kit.
the dev 5 has an option to rebuild the bottom end.

if your gonna fix everything anyway then you should have no real issues, apart from maybe having to replace the auxilaries, alternator, power steering etc.

yeah just dont go to extreme when buying a falcon with a fair it of mile age...id just get an average one with like 180-220,000kms and buil on that.

But yeah a stage 5 from ITS will strenghten all te botton end and a full hed rebuild plus all the extra goodies.
