roll XR6 I6 Performance

A couple of months ago I read that Ford were working on factory performance enhancements for the I6 engine - maybe supercharging...
Also heard that they (Ford) have a guy working full time on that particular idea.

Anyone know anything else on this?

Rumour has it that a double over head and Turbo are in the pipe line!

Yeah,

I heard that one too.

Wonder what we'll see first - the SOHC head + supercharger or the DOHC?

Didn't Ford already develop a 24V DOHC I6 at the same time as the AU they just shelved it and it hasn't been used yet?

i can say for a fact that there will be a Turbo DOHC and that DOHC is meant to be standard across the AV range

DOHC was actually designed for EA but was too expensive. It is only now that is will become reality due to the need for more KW, more efficiency and perhaps to keep inline (so to speak) with Holdens upcoming V6

Interestingly magnas V6 is only SOHC

Don't know about that Ian - I know of a 6 that did away with a few 8's a couple of weeks ago
