Do you want to drive the beast home after the strip or is it going to be a quarter queen?

If your driving it home, and money is no object, buy a BF XR6T 6 speed and see APS...

If you want to stick with the XF, get an XR6T motor for it and, again, see APS...

Forget the Falcon....

Go grab yourself a Cortina and work the X-Flow in it, or drop in a 289 windsor, only way your gunna be bale to keep up with that little MR2...

Or do the wise thing and save your money, don't blow it all on a car when your young because you'll be a poor a** when your older....

What is your fascination with the XR6T? As a street/strip car its way to heavy. If money was no object I'd dump the king nizpro donk into either a stripped out EA or a stripped out AU.

The best suggestion I've heard if ya wanna stick with the 250 x-flow is a cortins. My bro has a TE with a 250 and 4 speed. It has a stock bottom end but a pretty radical head and a huge cam and regularly embaresses GenIII owners.
Pretty much the same engine in my XD used to pull sub 15s over quarter (not bad for a big heavy car)
Neither has been on the dyno but both are regular drivers and run on premium so there is no reason you couldn't go warmer and increase the power to weight ratio if ya got money to burn.

You wouldn't be able to see very well in the dark in that thing would you???

A couple of more lights wouldn't be out of the question would it?

Would have to have been some pretty wild MR2's the 3sgte is a damn fine engine, but I would have thought the vt would have tracked them down... I guess this was traffic lights not at the strip.

Remember the older MR2s didnt have the 2L turbo, so it depends what your mates have.

I stilol think that gas is the go. There used to be a guy running a red corty in SA, this thing had a built 250, running staged gas and it went as quick as 10.5 from memory. He was using 350 hp staged as i suggested, ran a C4 box, and a 9 inch with 3.5 gears. This will be you cheapest option. And for those that say gas at 1500 is frought with danger. My 5.0 gets it times from gas off idle, yes the stall brings the revs up, but from idle to 5200rpm in all 4 gears, and i am using a 150hp shot. It can be done, and done on a reasonable budget if you choose this route.
