Ride: Ed v8 fairmont wagon, wr450f

Power: 137 rwkw

Well after weighing up the pro's and con's of building up the xe wagon i seen this pop for sale and went for it.
Rang ford up and they said it EA spac,3.9 muilti point,5 spd,rosewood paint,LSD,Class 1 towpack and pinstripe cloth trim.I seen the dash out it with 142k on it before the conversion. Now the next part from steering wheel forward is EB xr8 including whole crash pad, heater box,wiring harness,all interior and motor with 138k.The car runs a 6 cylinder t5 with a malwood t10 bellhousing redrilled to suit.
Not sure what type of bodykit is on it but think its dealer fitted as ford had nothink on the build sheet for it.Has lovell springs with square tube upper and lower control arms at the back and lovells with adjustable camber on the front.
Motor wise its stock as with exhaust and air cleaner fitted.I removed the factory motorcraft leads yesterday off as they were stuffed but still need to fit a new coil as it breaks down above 4600rpm..

Tried getting a few of the bellhousing as well for anyone half interested too.With the 6 cylinder t5 and this bellhousing 1st,3rd and 5th try hitting the centre console and the surround is cut to about 3-5mm of the edge of it but no tall first gear with it in so gets going nicely :P.
Plans for it not sure yet will get it engineered first and go from there,just got to lift it up for that and he will pass it no worries...

You bring them down and I will cruise on the vaults for a month.
I will even attend a cruise with them on.
Go you one better. Get something else on yours and I will enter the boat in All Ford Day on the Vaults!
Like I am going to beat anyway. The only person who is scared when the boat is on the prowl is a disabled pensioner in their electric wheelchair. The only reason they are scared of being beaten then is the fact that their battery might go flat mid run.

Yeah i know but its still pulling when it starts to break down and would spin to 5000 making power easy.Its nothink like my old orange eb where it sing happy to 6000 each gear change and loved the revlimiter..
As for plans not sure, would love to boost it but might have settle for a 347 at this stage as i think it would be cheaper..
