Here she is, my 1987 Ford Falcon XF GL. 250 Crossflow engine. She's an EFI model but running a 350 Holley on a redline intake manifold. 3 speed Borg Warner box that goes alright for now. Mods already done: -Factory wheels swapped with some 12 slotters running 225s up the front and 245s out the back. -Bull bar removed, nicely might I add, so all mounts are intact if I want to sell or put em back on. -Mounted an AFR gauge that I had lying round under the steering wheel. Here's mods list for short term: - New lowering springs front and rear, not super lows - New shocks to suit springs - New wheel bearings - New disk rotors - New ball joints - New Nolethane bushes all round (too stiff and noisy, thoughts???) - New tie rods and ends - Eb V8 rear diff 3.27 ratio LSD (wider by 10mm but should be sweet) - EF/EL sedan tailshaft Here's the longer term mods: - BF Barra N/A - Matched 4 speed btr - Tailshaft to suit - Engine and box mounts (Thoughts on Tuff Mounts, Rod Shop or another brand???) - Front sway bar to clear barra sump. Most likely buy new - Loom to suit - Standalone ecu or reflash stock Barra (not sure yet) - Manualized shift kit - B&M ratchet shifter - Get it engineered (this is where the list will get bigger) - Rust remove and respray If you've made it this far, maybe you'd like to pick any of this rough plan apart! Any criticism welcomed. Cheers.
right, sold my old surf and bought me a '88 xf falcon ute. minor mods, stainless big bore, good extractors, cold air intake, XR6 headlights, hard cover, good stereo, recon motor, kelford cam, reset rear leaves, V8 coils in front, XR6 seats, 20 in rims blah blah bad pic... bought some trademe 15x8s with tyres, not really a fan of huge diameter rims on old cars... got a steering wheel as well of tardme, just need a boss kit now, also getting door trims trimmed in real dark grey velour, much better than plastic... hopefully itl come out all right, need a decent paint job as well ive been wanting a good ute for ages and this one has had a hell of alot of money spent on it already, so i can just finish it off.
