    Warren,
    What will be the HP. range on the 4.1 crossflow when you are finished? Say with a 2 bl. and a 4 bl.? Stock would be?

    Hey Butch
    Just looked up the specs for the 4.1
    Power 121Kw
    Torque 325Nm
    Certainly has it all over the log-design early sixes (170/200 etc)
    And they're cheap as dirt as there's millions of them lying around.

    Warren,
    Break the HP and torque down in American terms,please. Are you talking about the 4.1 L being easy to find there? are the 170/200?

    I agree with you on the 170/200 being a log in compairson to the 4.1L cross flow. Seems like i read that some one over there made 440 HP with one.(4.1L)

    Thanks: Butch Evans(Falconeer)

    Hey guys, can I see some pictures of bagged front ends? im getting ready to do mine and want some more ideas. Im thinking just some 2500's and build some cups. I dont need a lot of lift so im not to worried about the bag pinching out. I know there will be a lot of deflection because the angle of the upper control arm. Any info would be great!

    My car is a 63 sprint BTW.

    Looks like you shortened and put some new dimensions on your control arms?

    whaddya think of lake pipes and or dummy spots on a 63 falcon. They are tradiotional and I like em on bigger cars but I have only seen on the falt black red wheel falcons which im not a huge fan of. What about on a nicely paited falcon with other good looking chrome??

    wow! Lots of hardware on that I6. Did you fab all that stuff?
    The front bags are from air lift and are not that pricey. I narrowed the control arms 1.5" and am using Fatman dropped spindles.

    I’m generally not a fan of that stuff. Especially on a ‘60s car, but the early Falcon is round enough that it might be able to pull off going taildragger style.
