The later XR Falcons use a 6 cylinder "typhoon" forced induction engine or a V8 similar to the American V8 engine. The XR6 lump would go nicely in a Capri...

yup  i reckon theres length for it in the bay too...and with shouldn't be any problem at all. The spec is sweet, and its straight 6 - my dream, purist configuration...perfectly balanced firing, no  primary or secondary order vibration...mmmmm  you KNOW that engine could be remapped for at least 380 as is  and look at the torque  and with VVT its o.k on juice. i heard you can ditch the VVT with a certain cam and gets shedloads more out of it....destroying the MPG
