  1. Id suggest blow thru over any factory ecu. Or a aftermarket ecu like a MS3 or even a FAST set up with a screen.

    XR-XF Falcon Coil Over Conversion kit

    McDonald bros sell a double adjustable bolt in coil over for under $1000. Well only just barely under and few years back but after doing a couple DC events and many street miles can reccomend them as a option. Takes longer to remove the old shit than it does to install the new stuff. And setting em up is different to what most think. But each car is wanting its own set up as per driver style wants needs and use.

    250 xflow crank bolt thread size

    They are a interference fit so bolt is mainly used to install not hold it on.

    3.9" or 4.0" ( " = inches ) not a ohc piston.

    You have to over bore and sleeve to suit then grout the block up to the welsh plugs at least. But again still limited by head gasket to around 3.82 from memory unless you go custom copper maybe. Moving the bore away from the valve is good move for power and cyl head flow aswell so a move to a 3.9 or 4.0 slug would be awesome in a xflow. Possible??? Well just asking the question makes it doable imo. No better way to dis prove peoples doubts than doing it.

    Theres more NAT ASP hp potential from the 300cuber but the cost is epic. That said Wazzy made as good as 500hp with his xflow thanks to JB race engines but that would of been at a epic cost too. Issue here is people want and think of a 6cyl as a cheapo thing and expect good hp from em just as cheaply. Speed/power/money rules still apply though. I rate the idea of one though

    There longer ALOT heavier and taller than a xflow with less hp. But people have been putting clevo and LS heads on em for a while. Then you get a custom cam,lifters,pushrods rocker cover,ignition exhaust and cooling. Yes I looked at it as a option but it was going to cost more than my xflow. One upside is the steel crank. Like said above a xflow is only lacking bore size not cubes and forced induction sorts that.

    This was a much better lap but timers failed Had to soften suspension to make it hook but it pealed out

    Thanks bro Always tinkering with it for improvements. Just fitted a 2nd idler pulley to it for more belt wrap and control slip.And obviously more boosts bro...lol. Blew charge pipe off it Saturday while doing a little tuning.Just as you think your getting it done Ill pull it off,weld a bead on it and maybe fit a bridging bar to hold it on there. But signs are showing improvments with every step.

    Skidding em in high gear on 275x60 Radial Pro's. Yep same set up as Calder where it went 1.5 in the 60ft but no traction on the start line or down track. JDM game is on point with the MS3 2 step though. Stubby race pipes will be spitting flames for days lol.
