Ninovic from AN Racing has been tinkering with
high performance Falcon GT’s for over
half his life. At the age of 16 Sash was walking
through Rockdale and spotted this vermillion
fire XY GT. After checking the car out and talking
to the owner the car was purchased.
Sash has owned this vehicle since 1990 and during
this time its seen a lot of street and strip
use. The car was taken off the road in 1996
for a full restoration. Nick Sutic painted the
car in vermillion fire acrylic. The trim was
taken to Louis from Master Auto trim who did
all the work in factory patterned white vinyl.
the painting was taking place the mild street
and strip engine received a refresh as did
the top loader gearbox and differential. This
engine was never dyno tuned but was estimated
to make approximately 430hp. This combination
was taken once to the race track on street
rubber and ran with excessive wheel spin a
12.90 @ 108mph.
In 2004 this engine was removed and sold to
an older gentleman who was planning to install
the engine into an old Ford 1932 hotrod.
made way for the new street engine that was
going to produce more grunt. The only requirement
that Sash had was to run pumped fuel. A late
model Windsor block was purchased. A whole
heap of performance parts was purchased for
this new combination. The engine has the following
393 scat steel crank.
• Scat steel conrods.
• Arias forged pistons 10.5.1 comp.
• Edelbrock victor junior alloy heads.
• Edelbrock victor junior intake manifold.
• Holley 950 double pumper.
• Yellaterra shaft rockers.
• Custom solid cam.
• MSD ignition.
• CVR electric water pump.
• Custom headers and exhaust system

combination was chassis dyno tuned at RPM
motosport which made 387hp at the rear wheels
but was later dyno tuned with different mufflers
courteously of Chris from Best Mufflers in
Carlton. The engine now produced 393hp off
the bat. The 750 holley was replaced by a
950 holley and the engine responded by picking
up 10 extra horsepower across the run, but
fell over at 5500rpm. At this stage the fuel
pump is suspected of not coping in this higher
rpm range. The car will be dyno tuned again
with a new fuel pump.
car was recently raced at WSID with street
slicks, 3.70 rear end and full exhaust system.
Sash found it difficult getting the car off
the line with plenty of wheel spin as the
60ft time indicates. Nevertheless the car
still managed to run a respectable 11.53 @
is now in the process of building this combination
for another 2 customers. If you are interesting
