That is a great looking car. Sounds like the engine has had a good tweaking as well. Must be worth a pretty penny :wink:

You should be very proud.

Keep the car 100% original, stock, and use only Ford parts, the re-sale in the end will well out way the cost of the ford parts vs after market.

If you do change the wheels, dont ever sell the rims, store them to put on at shows and when you sell it.

Thanks guys, Yeh had it for about a year now and paid 24000 wholesale due to working for a ford dealership. Yeh trying to track the original rims down but yeh see how we go. Yeh they are like herrod except southside made 4 out of there own pocket for the gm's of ford and yeh which were fully optioned. Not long ago i sent some articles out of motor magazine which my actual car was featured and yeh it was against the corsa and aps wrx. Yeh im really stoked with it and yeh the only prob is top end but off the line its like a rabbit out of a hole. Oh and when i bought it it had 93k and yeh its sitting on 110k now. A fella named bluey has number 4 or 3 and its red he was in the NT times in pfm pulling something like 12's or 11's. :lol: but yeh need to find out what other mods he has done to it!

Its the GT40 manifold, basically SVO used the standard GT40 kit that was available at the time in the US which was along the same lines as the EL GT engine, only better. I have a review around somewhere with all the engine specs, they were raved about because it was a very balanced kit, suspension, engine, diff etc. There were more than 4 of the 215kw packages made but obviously this one is a top of the range special version.

According to those wheels reviews. the SVO was good for 215Kw and 430Nm.. 7.53 0-100km/h and a 15.13 1/4 mile. thats 5spd obviously. none the less a cool car. i just cant handle those grey paint on the skirts. but other than that one lusty 5 Litre. :twisted:
