    The T56 has been going great, it idles along at 100kph at roughly 1500rpm no worries at all now. It changes so quickly too I gave it a good go and went through all 4 gears and got to a rediculas speed very quickly..... my passengers had the time of their life haha That big block power is killer It's curently getting a new exhaust hence why the sudden idea of a 4 link. I had to modify the tailshaft loop and move it further back, see in the pic

    I'm Able to use 6th it's just it's legit at idle, I can take off in any gear being that it's a big block Im running 3.89s in the rear I had a look and BGDAV's is so different, the only Similarity is the amount of gears our transmission has, Ill be driving the car in two weeks to go get the new exhaust system welded in,. It's a decent drive out the road to his workshop so I'll have some More Info Then Curently I have only gone around the block a couple of times

    Hey bud, i seen your comment on my video on YouTube, I deleted that video as it was never ment to be up for long I just wanted to show somone on the big screen, anyways You can add me on instagram Matthew.patmore Or Facebook, same name If you want to see more frequent updates I can answer your questions about the 6 speed aswel You said you wanted to see some of the car idling at 100kph in 6th, is that for fuel consumption or? I'm probably never going to make a 9.0litre v8 good on fuel lol, But it doesn't like idling in any gear you can blame my massive cam for that At 100kph I use 5th gear it's under 2000rpm already in 5th with the 0.8 overdrive, the 6th gear is 0.6 and drops the rpm a bit low and the car wants to cam up the road... If that makes sense, but lucky here in Darwin we have 130kph highways. When I do some more driving I'll update you on rpm stuff I'm also about to go to a 28inch tall tyre which is 2inches taller, this should drop the rpm further :S but I'm doing it for ground clearance, anyways message me back when you get a chance, cheers

    I'll give these a go first.. Lol I'm sure they will do the trick, if not Tristan at reaper Engineering will look after me,. These are his new Prototype serries Two demon flow resonators, he said alot Of Testing went into it to figure out the correct Size and length that makes A difference You can hear the mufflers online or on his fb page

    Yeah they are, tig welded 304 stainless I'll need the mufflers and the resonators to keep this thing quiet The resonators are 3''pipe 4''diameter to give you an idea of the added space I have now

    My fuel tank arrived I'm so happy with it,. This has the fuel system inside along with appropriate baffles to keep fuel where it should be And allow a Larger exhaust

    Is that with a small block? Lol I have 2 inch primaries on my big block don't ask me how they fit lol it must be the different angle of the cylinder head Did you know it's easier (I have found) to change spark plugs now with the 460 stroker than when I had a 351 Cleveland

    Yeah the photos don't do it justice lol it's a big engine this one, no one notices until I point it out haha, '' just look how little room I have at the shock towers'' I say and then it clicks That's shit that dellow messed up and didn't fix it, malwood seems like a good bloke, I have bought a few things off him, once they sent me the wrong part but sent the correct part asap, He's hard to get a hold of sometime, he's too busy haha I uploaded a video installing malwood under dash clutch master for x series ford's, it's on my Channel The left hand startor was malwoods suggestion, To Assist big block conversion he had just done it on his xb when I called to get the belhousing, it's not always a problem With small blocks I guess lol

    I wasn't aware of a dellow big block ford to T56 This QuickTime was ordered From Malwood It's special being that it has the startor motor On the left hand side (passenger side) to give me more exhaust clearance on drivers side
