Lightbulb Suggestion for a new T-series model.....

With the I6 getting the turbo for the XR6, i believe this enhancement will go to waste if its only the XR6 that is using it.

I would like to see a new model to enter the T-series range (similiar to that of the HSV XU6) that uses the straight 6, but pumps out a Whooppingg amount of kilowatts (say 260-280kw)

TS40 sound alright to you??

*dreaming*

I could definately see that happening, especially after the rumour of the enormous amouts of power Ford were getting from the I6 turbo during testing.

AUII XR8 220kw, Venom Red, mmm Venom!!!

Entry level T-series I6 with upped boost sounds about right to me. A T-Series ute should also make an appearance you'd think.

Fairmont Ghia is believed to get a low pressure boost version of the XR6 engine if you believe the rumours around the place.

Yeah, a T-series turbo would be sweet. As would a T-series ute, which would be a true Maloo competitor.

Yep Chubbz I agree with ya mate. Ford could release a 210kw turbo XR6, but it wont be much higher than HSV or Holden. Sure, aftermarket is there, but that's not the point. If Ford had a 280kw turbo beast, no other 6 from Australia or maybe even around the world could compete.

If ford have a 330+kw limited Edition GTHO then it would still not beat the V8s. So Ford have nothing to worry about there.

That would be pointless, a standard XR6 already wastes an XU6, so a turbo would waste it further.A high boost six would be pointless because it would displace the need for a V8.

Broken diffs, burnt out clutches, rusted shells. Yep, were in Kingswood Country.

Call it the TR40, TT40, GTT40, GTR-40, TS-R 40 etc..

Make it a high boost (~10-14 psi) twin turbo application, larger intercooler, lower compression (~8.0) and blue printed engine, cams, more boost, 6 speed transmission, monster brakes, 18" wheels, t-series kit, sat nav, tv etc.. Make it produce oh, around 300 Kw.

Forget the XU-6.. R34 GT-R is where this should be headed against. With a long delay in japan for the R35 GTR V6 twin turbo, you could sell them there. It could be targeted as more of a M3, Porka, GTR, competitor.

I think you're beeing a bit optimistic there Iphido. Still it would be great, but imagine the price on this vehicle.
