Do you have an XC coupe???

If so, can I hump your leg??? :lol:

I LOVE Falcon coupes. They are gorgeous!

If you manage to pull this off, you've gotta post pics.

What motor are you planing? (if you say XR6T, then I really will fly up and hump your leg!!!)

I'd say the possibility is roughly the same as Neil Armstrong returning to the moon.

considering how the rest of the car is integrated into the computers electrical system, i'd guess you'd have to pretty much transplant an entire BA loom, computers, etc into the XC

i would say prob not, and it wouldnt suit it anyhows. im sure u could tidy up the insides a lot better with a 1/4 of the price it would cost to transplant the BA in there.

BA dash would be a hell of alot of work, maybe EF/EL would be abit easier.... Youve got me interested now in doing the same to my coupe

that will cost a lot.. like.. yeah...

why not buy your XR8 and have it as the daily driver, and tidy the XC up a lil, and use it on the weekends... itl end up costin the same id imagine..

I love the idea, but it will be a lot of work, especially the suspension.

Talk to a engineer first, he/she might advise you how and if you can do it.

If you can going to find a wrecked XR8 wait for a BF 6speed to come available, whether it be a manual or auto, it would be better in the long run.

Have you even thought about a BF Ghia V8, I think you will find the 3 valver is not as wide, width will be a issue in a X series Falcon. 230kw and 500nm torque standard isn't to shabby, add some sort of forced induction and let the fun begin.

yeah the ghia sounds good but the boss is better i personly think.

but i might go for the ghia interior as the wood would complement my idea for the the doors and parcell shelf.

oh that reminds would you think a 10" sub would fit in the parcell shelf?

DONT PUT A SUB ON THE PARCELL SHELF. Seen too many good subs stuff the back window, and u and me both know how much rear windows cost for our coupes.

Got any pics of your coupe?
