Hoi! I've been doing a bit of reading on the Barra's, and sound like a pretty cool engine, and the power numbers are pretty impressive too.
The Barra 310T FG is the highest output version (or so I tjhink from my quick research:), and started in 2008--->present
=============================================================
Barra 310T FG
The high power variant of the FG's turbo I6 is in the new FPV F6. Featuring a larger turbocharger and intercooler, this is the most powerful engine (and the first to produce more than 100 hp (75 kW) per litre) manufactured in Australia. As a result, the F6's rolling acceleration from 0 km/h (0 mph) to 120 km/h (75 mph) is 4.0 seconds.

Power: 310 kW (416 hp) @ 5250 rpm
Torque: 565 N·m (417 lb·ft) @ 1950-5200 rpm
=============================================================

So, can any of you lads down there tell me how expensive would it be to find a decent donor engine/trans/harness/ecm?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Barra_engine

Then there is the whole shipping debacle :?

I expect the answer will not be what I want to hear (but in this instance, would be quite happy to be wrong).......good job I have a line on a decent 351W Roller engine :wink:

Thanks!
James

What do you call a kiwi laying under a wheel barra?
a mechanic.

Maybe the best place to try would be a internet search for a Australian auto wrecker.
but be warned they like to take your money

Thanks! I had a quick look on ebay the other day, and looks like there are a few out there, but the 310KW versions are thin on the ground & not that cheap. And I see the Aussie $$ is about 0.93 Canadian, better than USD, but not like when Aus $ was @ 0.7

Alan: $.50 on the dollar is pretty harsh, but that was still probably easier to take than your recent bore job, no?? :wink: (and sadly, my day is coming) :cry:
