May as well put this here too. Its on carsales atm.

Its an AU2 Falcon XL ute. It has had a turbo and 6 speed manual gearbox fitted amongst other things.

It currently makes 240rwkw running a soft tune. By all reports it should make closer to 270 safely on the same boost with some more timing in it. It drives great and I often get over 550kms to a tank on the highway carrying 2 dirtbikes.

I'm after $15,000 as this is what I think I can wreck it out for. Not negotiable at this stage but I'm willing to accept trades + cash depending on the car.

It has 470,000kms on it as it was used as a courier car driving between Swan Hill and Melbourne for quite some time before I bought it. The engine, gearbox and diff have all been replaced in the last year and it doesn't drive like a high km car imo.

Anyway onto the details.

Engine Improvements.
Stock engine fitted in December with 92,000kms. Have receipts to prove.
6BOOST turbo manifold
Genuine Garrett GT35r
Turbosmart 50mm External Wastegate
3 inch stainless dump pipe
Turbosmart V Port Blow Off Valve
Stainless intercooler piping
Plazmaman 800hp XR6T Intercooler
Nizpro Intake Plenum
Braided water and oil lines with speedflow fittings
Alloy catch can with speedflow fittings to rocker cover

All parts except for the cooler and plenum were bought new 4000kms ago.

Driveline Improvements
T56 6 speed manual gearbox from an XR6T
Ebay Short shifter
Mal Wood Option 3 + Clutch rated to 410rwkw
Mal Wood Hydraulic clutch pedal conversion
Braided delivery and bleed lines
Alloy concentric slave cylinder
Leather Gearboot and 6 speed Tremec gearknob
3.45 LSD from an AU XR8 ute

The gearbox and related items were bought new 4000kms ago. I was told the diff had 120,000kms on it. It seems fine.

Fuel and ECU modifications
42lb injectors
Bosch 023 in tank fuel pump
XR6 Turbo fuel regulator
Wolf V500 plug in ECU tuned by Robbie at Wolf Motorsport.
Cold start is good, it starts first go and idles perfectly.

The ECU was fitted in Feb 2011.

AU Fairmont Ghia 25th Anniversary Seats,
Door trims, carpet and centre console
Black leather gear boot
Tremec 6 speed gearknob
Standard grey dash and steering wheel
Electric drivers seat
Electric windows

Clear side indicators
Lowered on King Springs
BA ute 16 inch wheels, tyres are close to needing replacing.
Tinted Windows

The body isn't fantastic, the tailgate has an imprint of an old mobile phone number in the paint and there is a small dent in of the sills. The front bumper doesn't fit perfect either. Apart from the sill its all easily replaceable if you want to. I didn't care as it didn't attract attention.

There isnt much else to say. The aircon compressor was replaced in Feb so the aircon works perfectly.

It's also NOT ENGINEERED so will be sold without a rwc. There is 11 months reg but I dont think I'm allowed to sell it registered without a RWC.

I had the car insured with Shannons for $1,300 a year listing every single mod which they were ok with unless the modifications caused the accident.

Thanks for looking.
