Well, excitement times ahead. BTW, I couldn't quite pick whether 6.3 or 6.9 - inclined to agree with Anthony plus, of course, the workshop has confirmed that it is a 6.9.

Incidentally Motec 6.9, how come no one has ever previously known of the existence of this engine and the extensive modifications. Regards Styria

It's in a Ford. That is all.

Ah yes but it opens up all sorts of possibilities for modifications to some of our cars and I can already see the magazine stories featuring the origins of the M100 and info about the 6.9. The exposure will push values in the opposite direction to what we've seen over the last 15 years....

These cars are so undervalued it's not funny!

It has never been talked about on any forum I know about and I stalk Ford forums as well. All I can say is owner has deep pockets as any XC coupe is worth a lot of money. Just for an idea there are currently 4 Coupes for sale 1 XA Falcon 500 base model $25000, 2 XB 500 $37000 GT $60000, 1 XC Cobra $115000 . Seeing as Cobra was made to get ride off coupe shells it most like is a Cobra but 4.9 version which would fetch at least $50000. That's before any work like what has been performed is carried out. I personally only know off 1 XC coupe that is not a Cobra . It was order as a Fairmont GXL 5.8 Automatic from Gregory's Ford in Braddon ACT. Still with Nephew of original owner. it quiet possibly is worth more than a Cobra. As for more of these intakes watch this space. :D:D:D:D

After a couple of magazine articles in SM and the like everyone wanted a 1957 Buick. Even the lesser models became more popular... Not quite as popular now, but the values have definitely increased

Who knows that intake might be seen under or through a Mercedes bonnet before Christmas. ;) But yes it should help our cause no end. It would be second time M100 6.9 featured in the magazine but this kind off car would most likely be a cover car. Other one was just a feature it was the White 6.9 turned into a Ute on straight LPG. :D

This intake should make its way under here sooner rather than later but without the turbo's.

Many moons ago there was a 560SEC convertible conversion featured in SM. Very interesting that it had a 671 blower sticking waaay out of the hood. No idea on power but suffice to say it was more than adequate... Unfortunately the styling left a bit to be desired! I probably still have the magazine lying around somewhere

Hi Mark I know the car but no need to find the magazine. Car made international headlines in 2001 as main character in Scooter song . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YxTa1AUqps

Oh thanks for those pix! Looks pretty cool and definitely a sleeper...

BTW I'm not sure what's happened but I posted the pix of the coupe on FB about a week ago and there's been no real reaction.

Until today..... BOOM! :cool::p:cool::D:rolleyes:
