zoom magazine xr6 turbo

hi guys'
was at my local newsagency today and saw the latest zoom magazine. there is an article on another performance company hotting up xr6 turbos. basically they are getting in the region of 400 kw at the flywheel with around 761 nm of touque. the owner of the business reeled off a 0-100 km in 5.7 secs in the rain with a ute version. they are estimating moving around 30 cars a year with full warranty and with 24 hour roadside assistance covering australia and new zealand for those who want it. pricing in the region of $86,240 for the sedan and $75,480 for the ute. anyhow trying to post pics and the full article now should have the pics up soon for you to see.

Re: zoom magazine xr6 turbo

Nah, How can you drive when your blind from looking at that front end ?

Nice power, but at $86,000, you'd sure be hoping for it ( $35k more than base ? )

Wonder where you would be if you threw $30k at a XR8 ?
On second thought, we can prolly just ask minge :)

Re: zoom magazine xr6 turbo

Great to see this kind of operation charging forward for Ford products. There is a lot to like about these cars (except the bodykit!)

Re: zoom magazine xr6 turbo

Yeah, the kit is a bit rice too me...but I like the idea. Replace the dopey mesh with something a little less overt and it might look good.

That wing is a big bugger isn't she!

But I agree Sparkles..good to see the Fords are being tuned more and more.

Re: zoom magazine xr6 turbo

Oh and I should add that it's even better to see these operations emerging in light of FPV's tardiness. I reckon the aftermarket will provide some VERY solid competition for them in a years time when the FPV Turbo is finally out (an ambitious assumption really).

Personally, I hope that more of these operations spring up and force FPV out of complacency and into releasing some new exciting stuff. It would be a great kick in the pants for them (and much needed). Not everyone can wait forever for their dream turbo!

Re: zoom magazine xr6 turbo

Should be a HSV GTS eater and it costs less, good power with fairly low boost.
