Re: My F6's Jouney so far.

yeah- there'd be something special about spinning the wheels on the freeway at 100km/h when some dropkick pulls alongside you for a go......

I'm just pleased your on our side! we are lucky to have someone of your talent here mate- thankyou and well done for all your great work to that beautiful car.....

Re: My F6's Jouney so far.

Great to hear Simon. It's a shame you couldn't have kept the GTP and have the F6..lol Regardless even I, a Mk2 GT owner needs to give credit were credit's due. The F6 is a remarkable car and one of the best Oz Fords ever made IMO. If I get another FPV after the GT there's a good chance it will be an auto F6. I just hope I'm in a position were I can store the GT as well so I don't need to trade it in.

Have you had any issues at all with the F6? Diff, clutch and gearbox holding up ok?How have you found it down the quarter mile shoot?

Colville

Re: My F6's Jouney so far.

Sorry to post this in reply but if you read the motor and wheels magazine write ups the Phoon wins hands downs stock... The tuning potential of the typhoon is enormous.. And yes, tuned they kick the V8 back to the stone age..

Have you ever wondered why they took the ford sierra and nissan skylines out of the Bathurst race, cause they were embarresing the big bore owners....

Get used to it.. The typhoon is the new tough kid on the block....

Latest kill for me was a 6L GMH ...... (STOCK)

I have a 270rwkw tune sitting in the box but run stock mainly as it is a daily driver. All that torque just to get to work is fine with me.. And load up the tune and run a 5.5, 0-100, all for 900 bucks..... Thanks FPV....

It will never sound like an 8 but when your stepping on the gas... The sound sense is overridden by the adrenaline and the other 4 senses.....

Mate just bought the super persuit ute, we went for a run around the hills and wasn't he dirty... The phoon just far out performed the boss... and that was in stock mode,, I loaded up the edit and took him for a squirt around the same route and he was convinced... The 8 grand he was going to spend on the 8 he is going to save for next year when he gets a typhoon....... No point in comparing the V8's to the blown 6 anymore... If you like lots of nice noise and need to tow a caravan occasionally, buy the V8.. If you want top of the range performance, Go the Phoon........

Just my opinion.. Buy you are welcome to come for a drive with me anytime

mate im a v8 man born and bred.. BUT how could you turn up a car like the F6.. it has the true potential of a supercar for BUGGER all money.. If i had the choice again i would do what ive done... There is no competition. Its a slaughter... unfortunatley until the boss is force fed i wont be getting one again. :(
