    Copied from a US Ford 170 crossflow inline six out of motor created for the 1941 Ford range....

    Might have been developmental increases....but no unique thinking.

    No, but it means that Australia was gifted the motor...the start of the technology, just like the Chevrolet V8...

    Lots of us improve on the Chev with Australian parts, built here.

    Fishing in the Territory is this theme park :)

    EDIT:
    Sorry folks, read something about a Barra in this thread and got totally side tracked.
    When someone mentions Barra in conversation with me I automatically think Fishing

    Time update ! Went back to the dragway on Wednesday and managed a 13.068 @ 109.63. Same specs as last time (Only a tune and running original factory tyres with 19500kms)

    This is the last run before she goes into the shop for work next week for a OTR, headers, extractors and camshaft. Excited !

    You just did lol. I also think Barra's are great engines and another example of an Aussie world beater. I think Pink sings ok too, but I never wore her t-shirt to an AC/DC concert.

    Again off topic, My GXP has run 6.7 @ 206 with a twin turbo LS3 in the hands of the new owner at Sydney Dragway. It was competing at grudge kings on the weekend.

    Again your coparison to my GXP is Dynomites Barra in a Pro Stock chassis (with no rules) v's a carburetted SBC (400ci) running to a very tight pounds per cubic inch weight break is not a fair comparison. Come and run to a rule book and lets compare.

    As mentioned earlier, no one cares about your Barra comparisons. This is a VF forum where I thought it might be interesting to compare 1/4 mile times by our cars at the track.

    Sometimes it can be too much. Last time mine was on the dyno it had 445rwkw (and god knows how much torque). Traction is a major issue, and sort of defeats the purpose of all that power on the street.

    So when is the next Fast Friday at Calder? I went to their page but there is no updated time table. I'm new to this and just want to give my stock VF a good flogging where I can't get into trouble. (with the law) Do they just do it every Friday unless it's rain or shitty weather?
    Cheers DF
