Au XR6 VCT to an Au XR6 Turbo

Let's say a person i know, who "had" a BA xr6t minus the insurance meets a tree, sideways at 40km/h
lets say he was willing to sell his engine, trans and ECU for a very affordable price. would it be economically possible, price wise to put the BA XR6t engine in an AU

what kind of work would i be looking at? major electric and internal modifications?

I'm just trying to explore something that could be benificial.

Cheers!

I'd like to think the legalities in transferring a turbo engine to a vehicle originally manufactured without one to be the biggest issue that you'll face as well.

Re: Au XR6 VCT to an Au XR6 Turbo

I'm actually with casper on this one. The VCT is a damn powerful engine. with a few minor modifications the VCT is very capable of achieving power figures well over 200fwkw. Only other thing the VCT requires to rip into life is a piggyback ECU. I think you'd be suprised MustangNicko of what it can do once the ecu problem is delt with.

I'm not sooking, I'm just enjoying the thought of watching your car....in my rear view mirror.

BTW, you do realise that all BA I6 engines are also VCT?
