It came with the original  1098cc lump I'm going to keep it and put in a nice cam in with some roller rockers and some head work then if it works out maybe a supercharger later on down the track I'm wanting to build it up as a weekend coffee run car and some thing to tech the kids to drive in

Aussie Pro Stock drag racer selling petrolhead's paradise pad

https://www.whichcar.com.au/news/pro-stock-dream-home



The stunning five-bedroom country house on more than 10 hectares in far-western Sydney has dream home written all over it, even before you discover its 560-square-metre garage with games room, car showroom and enough undercover parking for 23 cars - or about half the room that would be required to store Editor Broadley’s dream car collection.

What’s more, the Wilberforce property seems to represent a relative bargain for its circa $4 million asking price.

Had the misfortune to punt a Maranello red  SL/X  around as a company car for a 6 months till I sold it.   The Hilux 2.8 diesel ute that replaced it felt like it was a supercar performance wise . ;D ;D
