Hi Folks,

My mate has an EF XR6 which he has taken to his mechanic and een screwed over bad. They have rebuilt the head and tested it (apparently) but its still stuffed and pooring smoke out the exhaust real bad. Their final solution was to put some oil addative in to mask the problem.

My mate is pretty fed up and wants a good joint who can rebuild the bottom end and test the head and everything properly.

Can anyone make any recomendations ?

PS. He lives in the Dandenong (VIC) area.

Speak to Pete Deguara, Williamstown Dyno Tuning

Honest man and a damn nice bloke who has forgotten more about building engines than most of us will ever learn.

id refer u to my mate in cambellfield...but you are a bit far out from where he is...but if he is willing to go down that way he will do a good job...they know their fords since the both own one each.
