  1. Look What arrived today :)........ My new brakes they look so good here is some pictures and a link to the quick Unboxing video also
  2. Nice work ill be watching this build
  3. Thats Alot of coin for a supercharger Kit keen to see what you do here have you thought of a centrifugal type ? or you want the roots style blower? whats your goal here? power output?
  4. Love a good old wagon Turn it into a sleeper haha Barra engines are cheap these days and there is a really good aftermarket for them meaning wiring and engine mounts are no longer a headache even a naturally aspirated one for a start and can chuck a turbo on it later when you get bored, they handle low boost no worries at all just my 2 cents
  5. Today i did a lot of wiring finally getting somewhere also installed my new Twin Lucas Horns
  6. Thanks i dont imagine ill have any trouble with this set up. theres $11k in that gearbox haha yes time frame is a interesting one as i started this big block conversion with 10k engine in mind :S haha that purchased the bottom end....... so got a bit wild but will be worth it, the engine and gearbox are all paid for now and just waiting to be sent from Perth where engine was built up to Darwin where the car is im flying to Perth on the 16th Jan so i can box them up and send them here. then work will get in the way a bit (up until March) then i should be back here with the combo ready to install. every step has been taken so it should be a quick turn around once its here Wiring will be done (curently doing that this week) i spent a few hours last night re-wiring my gauges, i will be doing some more work today to sort out the spaghetti on the inside
  7. Wow this thing looks awesome love the black paint
  8. Nice Work its good to see another XC being looked after, i am a little surprised your playing around with the old 6 cylinder i understand its original ect but so much more can be achieved even with a latter model 6 or a brand new 6 and turbo but dont mind me im a Horsepower lover im currently giving my XC a new lease on life and waking it up a bit with a monster engine combo 523 cubes 8.6 Litres should annoy the shit out of the neighbors haha
  9. Hi Everyone, My Names Matt and I'm part of the way through re-building my 1978 Ford XC sedan, i had a previous build tread but a lot has changed since the beginning and i think the car deserves a new page Car - 1978 Ford Falcon XC Sedan Engine - Ford 460 stroked to 523CI, Forged internals, A429 Cobra Jet Cylinder heads, Dual Quad intake, Fitech Throttle body injection, ICE 7amp ignition, Has made on the engine Dyno - 702HP@6450rpm and 647ftlbs of torque @ 4850rpm Gearbox - Tremec T56 Magnum 6 speed Differential - Fabricated 9 inch (Tex Racing) 31 spline, Detroit Locker, 3.89 gears, Floating Hubs. Brakes - Front: 355mm Vented/SLotted Rotor with Brembo 4 Piston Caliper. Rear: 330mm Vented Rotor with 2 Piston Caliper (Internal hand brake Floating hubs). Interior - ESP Seats Code M:Gunmetal Grey Gauges - Autometer (Pro Comp Ultra Lite) electronic Ill include some pictures of the car and how it sits right now patiently waiting for the engine to be placed into the engine bay expecting this to be done in April 2018. I will also include the link to my YouTube Channel where i have been uploading update videos of the Xc along with other projects https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWhCp6o7R9qC4xId6WTgNQQ

  11. Hey everyone, i have noticed that most of my early photos ect have been removed due to photobucket requesting money now to keep your stuff so im thinking of starting a new build page, especialy since my car has changed a bit and honestly needs a page of its own new page link
  12. I Have another video for you guys this one showing the Un-Boxing of my new custom wiring harness and the under dash clutch master kit from Malwood automotive
  13. I have got my diff fully installed and the calvert racing suspension all tightened up shes just legal height but that is only a 26'' tall tyre so i am not too worried (275/40R17) ill possibly be upgrading to a 295/40 or a 10.5x28 not sure yet, i know they will fit as there is plenty of room left
  14. Front Brakes were $3200, rears were part of the Diff so cant remember roughly $1800 i think (2 piston 330mm rotors on floating hubs on the rear) this is the rear
  15. if you want a set youll have to buy them http://www.cruizinclassics.com.au/ i sent my wheel down so that the maximum size could be put in, minimum 17s for this set up, but this company makes 4 piston conversion for even a 15 inch rim just depends on the rotor size
