Hi,i have put some photos up of this car before,but i'd figure i would put something in this section about the car.It's a september 1982 build XE Falcon sedan,was originally a 6cyl s-pack in red,bought the car after it had been sprayed gunmetal grey and had a V8 fitted (was told it was a 351 but when i took it out of the car found out it was only a baby 302 clevo).
I bought the car in 2005,drove it around for about a year,then took it off the road.In that time i entered two Powercruises with at Eastern Creek.It had 14inch gold Simmons V5 mags,302 clevo,c4and borg warner rear end.
The car is still currently off the road while i rebuild and fix the things that were bodged up by the previous owners.Got the motor rebuilt by Trick and Mansweto Race engines,now 351,rpm air gap manifold,750 Holley d/p,lumpy cam,ported and ULP converted 302 2V's,engine balanced and blueprinted.Got the gearbox done by Protrans,shift kitted,3500rpm Dominator stally,and the diff got done by Craft Diffs,3.7:1 gears,billet axles,semi locker etc.The plan is eventually to race in super street bracket at the drags,along with plenty of street driving.Here are some pics,i dont have any pics from when i first bought it.

The motor has about 420hp at the flywheel.I think i got a pretty good package from Trick and Mansweto,the head work looked really good.Here are some more pics of the bits n pieces of the car,including the motor.

Nice ride dude, always loved XD & XE especially when ther a ESP

Have u concidered using magnaflow mufflers instead??? hooker have a more raspy sound and magnaflow have a more deep throaty sound and flow abit better ans also come in stainless which last way longer and not much more than a hooker.

I was thinking of getting some magnaflows,but i got the pair of Hookers as a gift,so im not complaining about that.I also have of a pair of Hurricane 2V extractors,look similar to Pacemaker.
