hey i just bought and XD falcon 6 cylinder for $1000 and it was pissing out oil from the rocker cover so I took it off and replaced the gasket. while I was doing this I noticed it has massive roller rockers on it and it has extractors. the car is hard to start and doesnt like to idle. it has a manual choke on it and it has to be running for a good 15 minutes before you can let it off. when it does idle it sounds lumpy and has a very deep note (sounds awesome).once it gets up to around 2500 rpm it goes, HARD. would it have a cam in it or any other kind of headwork done judging by what ive described? because when I bought it I thought i was getting a plane jane XD. i wasnt told of and mods lol. I bought the car off a bloke that had it sitting in his shed for 11 years.
thanks guys
