    Ford Falcon with LS1 Power Eats Tires

    Written by Patrick Rall

    While Americans obviously enjoy a good burnout, no one in the world does burnout competitions quite like Australian gearheads. This burnout which comes to us from the YouTube channel of Flinty460 features an Aussie Ford Falcon putting on a proper show.In the United States, the vast majority of burnout competitions happen with the car or truck sitting in place. Usually it involves a drag strip burnout box or in a specially prepared spot at a car show. In Australia, burnout competitions are held on what are essentially huge parking lots, where the cars and trucks are free to do donuts, drift and perform any other actions which will create tire smoke.Next, in the United States, gearheads looking to build an inexpensive high performance car will often acquire a Ford Mustang and install a GM engine often based on the LS platform. In Australia, they only recently got ahold of the Mustang on a large scale, so when Aussie gearheads want to build a Ford performance vehicle with a GM engine, they turn to the Ford Falcon. Although the Falcon is best known in the US for being an affordable compact from the 1960s, the Aussie Falcon has been a leading performance model Down Under for years (although it has recently been killed off with the arrival of the Mustang), making it plentiful and popular.SEE ALSO: Check out the LS1tech Conversions & Hybrids swap forumMore importantly, when an Australian gearhead builds a burnout machine, the goal isn"t to just have enough power to smoke the tires. No, they want enough power to literally blow the tires off of the car. In many cases, these burnout machines will run supercharged funny car engines. However, the owner of this GM-swapped Ford Falcon opted for the simplicity of an LS1.Fortunately, this built LS1 provides more than enough power for this Ford Falcon to smoke the tires hard for more than a minute, resulting in the death of both rear tires and a huge cheer from the crowd.Tags: Burnout Fridays, ls1
