    Dan, we're all mates here, how does "mates rates" sound?

    In Australia if you say "I'll do it at mates rates" that says I'll do it for nothing because your a good friend. But it is cheeky to ask a mate to do a job for you at "mates rates" especially if it is unlikely the favor would be returned.

    So when Ford Australia were developing the motor it was called the "Barramundi Project" or Barra for short!

    I turned on closed captioning. When the engine revs it says [Music].

    I think the aftermarket engine management systems are bringing these motors we thought were not anything special a giving them a new life.
    The castings of those heads on these late v6's were very good and still tough as they are iron on an iron block. Both these guys and StreetmachineTV are playing with that era V6 at the moment.

    When my ship comes in I wouldn't mind having a hub dyno setup. Good system. And the V6 seems reasonably healthy. I do, however, need an Aussie-to-American translator (I caught some of the words but.......).
