    13 for 1300... Cortina / Falcoon Wagoon

    Ok, my entry is a TE Cortina wagon. Picked this thing up for $150 with no gearbox and a cooked 2L. And the other half is a EF futura that some guy parallel parked in a tree that I picked up for $350.
    I'll get it into the shed and start taking more photo's as soon as I get my 4x4 out (ie- lunch time)

    Anyway here's pics!







    Game on fuckers!!

    UPDATE 31/5/11:

    Cost of cars- $500
    Chinese GT35 Turbo- $219
    Oil line kit- $49.97
    Intercooler kit- $190
    100 psi 255 lph Fuel pump- $119
    Rising rate fuel regulator- $75


    Running Total= $1152.97

    Good score. Expect a tad over 100rwkw. While I'm not 100 sure, you might be able to get a corty xflow sump onto that block, or at the very least trim the EF sump above the pan rail and cut and shut them together (tack to an old block while welding). Oil pick up from a corty crossflow also needed.

    I love this challenge. Guess I'll see you at Heathcote!

    major mods required to sump need both cortina and ef sumps you need EF pan rail and cortina bowl and then a few hours blending them together

    need to recess the firewall slightly and fab custom engine mounts

    if its a 4 banger you'll need to un stitch the gearbox crossmember mounts off the floor and move them, radiator support panel needs to be modified to take a 6 cyl radiator
    List of cars goes here

    Yeah the 4.o litre swap seems like a PITA considering the model came with a 250

    Ahh the memories. My first car was a TE cortina 2.0. It was slow as fuck with the auto and when I put a manual in with a few bodgy tweaks it went hard and done an awesome 2nd gear skid. It was quicker than 202 commodores and 253 kingas so I was happy draging people on Anzac Ave. I only dreamed of a 4.0 powered version.

    Why only 100rwkw? These things put out close to 160kw at the motor? I would have thought a few tweaks and it would have to get 130rwkw? I think if it was a manual it would do 13s very easily.

    Awww FUCK. I should've checked first, but it only means a bit more work... Turns out the air con drain had been leaking onto the floor for a good portion of the cars life and when I went to drop the car onto the stands on its jacking points this happened:







    Oh well... drag the MIG out... :P

    Haha, I think the passanger side will actually feature an ejector seat in an impact. Only problem is it will be out the bottom of the car rather than the top.

    I lost it at this.

    I like this things, 6 cylinder cortinas and hemi centuras need more love IMHO. lead tipped darts at their finest.

    gut the doors, drill holes in the booster bracket etc for more fasts.
