The engine rebuild is now under way bigger and better , I have doubts as to wether its going to be sold or not as I think that when he drives it hel go power crazed again. I'd like to see the dyno this time round as I think it's going to top 470rwhp.May even go 500. What a dream to drive that sort of power under the foot.

well it lives again, bigger, better and stronger than ever. The engine is not yet run in but the strength of this thing is out of this world. Just drving like it like an old granma at 3000rpm then simply breathing on the accelerator to 4300rpm without hard throttle makes the rear of the car act rather violently. Cant wait till it's fully run in this thing is a f**k death wish. The engine is now stroked to 393ci, cam is huge and the note from the exhaust simply says "dont f**k with me!". I dont understand why but nick (xegroupc4eva) is still keen to sell one of an eleite few road going street cars with horsepower to rival a V8 supercar, figures are only estimates at the moment 630hp+ at the fly wheel and around 530+rwhp. The last engine build gave dyno reading of 430rwhp and feels rather playful in comparsion to the new engine. He says he wants a late model GT to play with, I guess it's he's choise. Price he's starting at is $28000 neg fair deal after seeing an ad in a ford mag today for an xe esp ghia selling at $60,000. If only I could get the cash!
