Just a bit of an intro to the car.

I bought off ebay in 2007 with about 200 thou on it stock as a rock..

Image

and put my old XR6 wheels on it, clear indicators and some EL wagon tail lights..

Image

Image

After that I put a EL hybrid XR6 head on it, 300kpa reg, NC sportsman ECU, XR6 tailgate wing, XR6 Quad light front, 17's, and lowered it 2 inches all round.

Currently looking a bit sad with a blown head gasket, sitting behind the shed waiting for a transplant.

Image

Image

After the head gasket went, I thought it was time far a change, and not having a V8 powered car since I was 18 I decided to throw a 5.0L in the ol girl. while searching, I came across a 5.0l wagon and made the purchase.
I got to drive it for about a month before the rego ran out, then onto the hoist it went, out with the 8 and in with a 6.
Now with the engine and trans sitting on a pallet I was able to pull it down, at first I was going to just rebuild it, and with looking for rebuild kit I came across the stroker kits and with some umming and arring I purchased a Scat rotating assy.
With the block stripped it was into the engine reconditoners for a re-boar and a hone.

I have since picked the block up and have it on my engine stand ready for reassembly.
and some more pics of all the stroker goodness.. :yahoo:

Image

Image

Oh and I aslo got some plates to go with it :P

Image

more updates as I go...

small update, after finishing off cleaning up the shed, I got the block all cleaned up and the pistons have the rings and rods fitted, I would have squeezed them in, but I could not find my ring compressor, lol will have another look for it tomorrow.

Again not a lot more done, still helping my mate, but I did manage to paint strip the sump and pressure wash the intake manifold, upper and lower sections.

All ready for paint (will attempt that tomorrow).

347 Wagon...awesome..!!

Just a warning with those king bearings, they are a really hard bearing, and if the crank is cast it will wear the crank faster than the bearing. Just a heads up.

Also, with that balancer, im not a 100% sure, but does it have the right offset and 4-bolt pattern for the aussie 5.0L.
