I'd think more like low 15's, maybe even better.
My bog stock 99 AU 5.0 Fairlane ran 15.5.
A good exhaust system makes a big difference to the 5.0.

my au2 forte v8 - pretty much all stock except for extractors and k&n - did 15.02 so you should get low 15's easy

The ute is built on the LWB chassis. Falconfacts says there's about 20 kilos in it, in favour of the Fairlane. 1676 vs 1696.

How accurate that is I don't know, but the utes are a lot heavier than you'd think.

As for times, I'd put my money low to mid 15's.
