i know some of you will say why bother

because i love the E series falcon and i bought the car as a one owner with 120000km with log books and history for $2000 all the suspension has been done wheels prestige paint is beautiful

and i have had a lot of e series and this is the best by far i had EB XR6 manual Ea brock xr8 sprint EL and the EL fairmont the fairmont is the perfect car for this project in my mind




Thanks

If all you want is 250rwkw then just rebuild it to stock spec with some 40thou EA 3.9 ACL race pistons.
You wont need anything special at all.

you wont need a c4 unless you are chasing 10's if you go auto just modify the valve bodies and give it a rebuild. but if you are going for a manual then you could go t5z, t56 or tko and they will be strong enough.

there are guys running over 300rwkw on the 3.9 acl pistons. the EF/EL factory forged rods are plenty strong enough for 300rwkw. just keep the revs under 6000rpm, these engines don't need revs to make power.
