An iconic car in the Aussie drag scene, Steve Bezzina’s XW Falcon is a true crowd favourite. The Ford has run as quick as 7-flat in the quarter at over 200 miles per hour on 275 radials.

Power comes from a Dandy Engines small block Ford V8 engine boosted by twin Precision turbos. Recent additions include the switch to a Fueltech computer and a new to market CID intake manifold.
We caught up with the team on the dyno where the Falcon quickly punished the Quickbitz hub dyno. At around 33 pounds of boost the Ford was reaching the current limit of the hub dyno so the guys called it a day. This is still close to 10psi less boost than what the car sees at the track.
