    I’ve bookmarked this because I found it notable. I would be very keen to hear more information on this. Great!

  2. cheers very much, I have to say your site is excellent!

  3. beautiful, but a new and revised Australian 4.0L Inline six cylinder Falcon engine will make a lot more power than a current 195kW 391Nm FG engine. Not to mention that the current FG engine makes just over 200kW yet a lot more torque which is at 420Nm when you run the car on RON98 petrol. Again this is around 40Nm+ more TORQUE than what this new 3.7L V6 makes yet around 20kW less power. The new FG will make 220kW and over 430Nm of torque and will be the revolution in the I6 technology taking and further reinforcing what the revolutionary BA Falcon with its Barra182 4.0L DOHC VCT 182kW and 380Nm of torque did in 2002. A V6 will never make the TORQUE of an equivalent or same capacity I6 engine. All Ford needs to do in Australia is make their cars ECU programs less restrictive and they will outperform the current V6 and V8 American variants of similar engined cars.
