Now it means back to the drawing board as I must be number 1 with power on my 6.9.

So is it a 6.3 or 6.9? I can't see any external oil tank....

What's the story behind the build? Will it feature in any magazines?

It going to be a show car so very likely in magazines. It will have 10psi of boost and haltech computer. Was told its 6.9 but being custom tank could be anywhere or not fitted in the pictures yet who knows. But its going to be awesome.

Finally it happens where someone with very deep pockets recognizes the M100. Even a XB coupe bare shell isn't a cheap piece of kitt! Hopefully it makes some big numbers and gets the accolades it truly deserves....

What trans are they running?

I wonder if the owner has been checking these pages (or other 6.9 websites)? I'm surprised this is the first we've heard of the project... Motec how did you find it and have you done the rounds of postings?

Seems like us Aussies are the first to take the M100 so far....

No 710 cap on the rocker cover indicates a 6.9

Why not be happy with the most powerful AND practical 6.9, one that handles. is refined, quiet, comfortable and classy, every thing a two door taxi isn't?
Disclaimer. I bought a '94 ED XR6 wagon new, and loved it. It was quick, 6 cyl smooth and revvy, well tied down and, as a wagon, kinda exclusive
