Dandy Engines recently spent the week in Sydney testing with EFI partner Fueltech as well as supporting their own client base. The Dandy team also had one of their own vehicles out in their popular Ford XW. The engine was recently given a freshen up with a switch to an alloy block.
The Falcon is powered by a twin turbocharged Dandy small block Ford Windsor V8 that pushes out around 2200hp. Early passes resulted in a little damage to the exhaust and underbody where it was promptly fixed at ProFab Motorsport Fabrications.
Keen to have a crack at the 200mph mark, it’s a struggle trying to get the power down through stock suspension and on small tyres.
