Re: Factory XF Twin Turbo!!!!!!!!

something i found on the auto speed website

"I developed the early XF Falcon turbo and twin turbo kits back in the late '80s. We had a twin-turbo four-wheel-drive Falcon, which I took to England for about four months and - the day before we were ready for a press release - I crashed the thing. That car was making about 380 horsepower and about 540ft/lb of torque on the engine dyno. 540ft/lb is pretty good even today - there aren't many cars on the road with that torque, that's a shitload. Yeah, that was a pretty state-of-the-art thing at the time - we had a ZF 5-speed in it and a trick four-wheel-drive set-up. The only problem was the EA was coming out the next year and that made it difficult. I did some work on the early stages of the AIT EA Falcon turbo kit and then I left.

Re: Factory XF Twin Turbo!!!!!!!!

My dad's car is awd and is a one of. It was rebuilt after england and not many people knew this. It was sold to a friend of my dad's who bought this and the 2 wheel drive one that only had twin t25s on it when AIT closed. My Dad bought it about 2 years ago. I would post pics but they don't seem to work for me. But I will tell you this the ZF 5 speed gearbox has a transfer case built into it to run the front diff which is part of the sump on the 4.1. It was built by ferguson formular developments.

The story apparently behind it written off was about seeing how fast it could do laps around the roundabout it came of second best and the story got out that it was written off because all this happened just days before the england magazines were going to do stories on it.

when you see it you will believe it can't wait to take it to some shows, not that long to wait!

cool
