Interesting read, but you still have to love the brute force of a Phase III.

You would get kicked off ford forums for posting this, i got kicked off for saying the phase 4 is overpriced and a better car could be built for 50 grand :D true story.
The phase 3 ho is the most overrated ,lied about car in the world, its all noise.

Yeah in it's day, now they are an overvalued museum piece that have utterly distorted the market for every model XW/XY, with almost every one being sold as "good for XY GT rep".

the torque curve on the normal clevo's are very flat, imagine the spread on the phase 3? Maybe only the 5.6l ticky in the T3 T50's could come close to this engine.

I wish ford still built big raw grunty V8's for our falcons.

They have the know how, just the lack of will.

What is the point of this thread? If you're buying a phase 3 because you think it's going to out do a race built vehicle or any of it's modern equivalents around a track then natural selection should dictate that you will get struck by lightening before you're old enough to reproduce.
