if its a 3.5 magna your falcon will have to work hard to beat it.

but as stated above the 3.0 is s**t slow...
i had a run with a 3.0 magna in my misses mitsubishi scorpion 2.6 auto s**t box and beat it.. lol the look on the dudes face was priceless..he looked so p****d off being beat by a early 80s s**t brown smoke machine
the only thing done to the scorpion is its got a webber carb from a xf falcon... :lol:

Well if it was a 5spd TE 3.0l V6 in good nick you would get owned. But if it is an auto there about 3 secs slower to 100kmhr. So would be close. Alot less drivetrain loss with FWD cars. Something to consider.

The redbooks are a load of sh!t. They said my EL, standard did 9.2sec for 0-100km. I timed mine just with a catback and a better air intake and got 0-100 in 7.45sec and i just put the Paci comps on and that has made a massive difference.

I say time your car your self, do it a few times and get the avg.
