GEN1 engine - first generation

 

GEN1 was a fully rebuilt Ford "Falcon" 200cid/3.3L inline 6-cylinder engine, C8 casting. I bought it complete from oil pan to air cleaner from a web auction (like eBay but local Finnish thing) for 20USD just to learn how to rebuild engines. I had never opened an engine before.

GEN1 engine performed 112hp and 202Nm torgue in the chassis dyno in the summer of 2004.

This engine was fired up in mid January 2004 and was removed from duty late March 2005. It served very reliably some 20000 miles. The downfall was the ability not to measure oil levels in a rear sump fox body and so it had to give its place to next generation engine, the GEN2.
