13s For $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 15
Yep, we've pulled the Project Bluebird - 13s for $1300 Falcon out of the shed again to see what it'll do on the Dyno.

13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode Eight Part-1
Here it is, the long awaited Part Eight of our 13s for $1300 project. But unfortunately it's so big that I had to split it into two parts. This is some seriously heavy duty tech and not recommended for the diy home mechanic. I reckon you should leave this one up to the professionals. Please remember, working on cars is dangerous, and this part is probably more dangerous than most. This video is purely for entertainment purposes, I take no resposibility if someone tries to copy what I've done and hurt themselves.
