    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!

        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!

          sump and pickup will fit, just have to relocate the dipstick for the oil.

            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

              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...
