Hi guys, I've been a member for a while but not a big poster (Havn't had much time for forums nowadays). I decided that I didn't need a sedan as a daily so I thought this was an opportune time to invest in a ute so I picked up this bad boy.

Make: Ford
Model:2004 BA Falcon XR8 Ute
Colour:Mercury Silver
Engine:5.4l Boss 260
Gearbox:5 Speed Manual

Sadly didn't come with the 20's but with the standard BA XR Wheels

I got it really cheap on the basis that it had the common problem that all the Boss 260 have, "That Bottom end knock :P". So i'm leaning towards going a Boss 290 as per recommendations by FTG and a few of the threads that I have read. I will have better pics when I get home, these ones are just the eBay ones.

Is there anything else I should do with one of these while the motor is out, the biggest one I have seen as stated by 'data_mine' is to change to a billet oil pump and an underdrive pulley. Look forward to hearing from some of you and catching up at a couple of meets :).

Cheers,
Kyle
