Efi for the fuel efficiency and tuneability. It is also a necessity for the traction control from my understanding.

Car park shenanigans I mean if a panel gets dented its no big deal if it isnÒ€ℒt an original panel car (dents are inevitable no matter what car you have so IÒ€ℒm willing to live with this). As far as theft I feel sorry for the thief that attempts to steal this car.


Make sense suspect?

Yeah for sure.. I'd still be hesitant to put a cell in a daily...maybe a fuel safe tank... the ones with the bladders.. so they dont leak every where if ruptured.. there is also those shields that were in MM a while back.. where the tank is 'amoured'.. and with EFi you have a inertia switch to kill the pump in a prang.

Additionally, the foam inserts in a cell break down over time and have to be replaced.. and that material will block the filter.. its just more maint and for the loss of space.. I 'personally' wouldnt do it.

Fuel tanks are fine, more people are eaten by sharks than cop a fiery death by exploding fuel tanks. If you cop a hit up the bum hard enough for it to happen fire is the least of your problems. Digging the other cars grille from the back of your skull would be a more pressing issue. Sad

Yeah the problem is that there is generally not enough air in the tank available to support an explosion. I remember seeing it on Myth Busters.. and we all know that's gospel.

But seriously, it takes both air and fuel to make that explosion happen. The bladder tanks would be a better bet if it's really a concern.

It wasn't really the explosion that was the problem. I'm more concerned about a ruptured tank leaking everywhere eg. onto the back seat. I don't no maybe I'm being paranoid but I'd hate to survive a crash and then catch on fire...it wouldn't be very cool

It's crap, all old Oz falcons are the same do you ever hear of it happening, not even at Bathurst where they trashed quite a few at high speed, If you are worried about, buy a coupe and weld plate a behind the rear seat. This will stiffen the car as well. I'd be more worried about smashing me knees on the steel dash frankly, and copping a brake pedal in the shin.

Still think it would be more cost effective if you just got that black 65 F/B off Sean.... Poke

It is only a GT, so a few mods will not hurt down the track.. Drool

I would not worry about the cell, drove our 69 over in the US for 11 years & 70K miles without issue. If you were racing it, then a diff story.

As for the car, well I am quite happy to store it for you & keep the oil circulated...

Cool, I'm not one to complain about striking off something that is unnecessary! Although they do look quite horn in a modified car Drool

Kerry store it for me and I guarantee I will buy it off you in a few years haha
