Re: Decent turbo I6 owners

The best turbo Falcon street cars are running high 10s. They are truly elite quarter mile machines, and the only street cars that will outperform them are big HP VL turbos, Skyline GT-Rs, Toranas etc with mega dollars spent in most cases. I don't have any race videos against other cars, but I have videos of a couple of XEs going down the strip.

Diff, tranny and computer are among the many items that would be replaced or rebuilt in any serious turbo application.
