From memory, BF = more compression and independently tuned VCT for each cam

BA vct, 182 kw

BF dvct, 190kw, more gearbox choices. no brake problems, no water pump problems in the xr series (what i heard from when the ba first came out FROM A DEALER!)

really they just ironed out the bugs. interestingly, the bumpers are interchangeable. if you smash a ba front, a new one from ford is $1400 painted. the bf? only $800 WTF?

actually there was a thing in the sun today. 2003 magnas are worth a grand total of about $4500. For a three year old car. go the ba (find a good one) and save the money for a house or something

Thats wot you get for buying a Magna. No one wants them ebcause of their tendancy to explode at random.

Possibly, but theres a fella who drives about in his blinged up magna, and it sounds pretty good. 3.5L or not, I still reckon they'd give falcons a run for their money...

I wouldnt use a magna for a bucket...come on 4.5k for a 3.5L bucket that weighs too much.

You can get the latest model magna motors for bitamissin for like 400-800 buks now. Its for the model before the 380. But i seen them and was like i wanna build a mean gokart with one of those...imagine that??
