Time for a change..

Hi all

In the next month or so i will be selling my XD. The point of telling you that im going to sell my car, is that i want to be an E series member after i sell my other falcon.
I have been looking at ED xr6's. My plans is to turbo charge the falcon (I6) on the cheap. I will be looking at spending 5-7 on the car itself, plus another 5 -7 on the turbo. If it is not a viable option to turbo an e-series falcon would also be of help. Any oppinions on the ED's or any other E series falcon will be muchly appreciate. Also anything to lookout for would be a great help. Sorry for putting in the I6 tech forum, but as most of the E-series users browse here, i thought it would be a good place to start.

Thanks in advance

Dents and;

Re: Time for a change..

At least you're giving yourself a reasonable amount to spend on the turbo set-up. Others want to do it spending only a couple of grand, which either won't happen or will at the least be a very dodgy set-up. I'm actually thinking of doing the same thing, and providing the engine in the car you buy is a good one, without too many k's, a moderate boost set-up should work very well. My idea would be to open the chambers in the head a bit to bring the compression down to 8.7-8.8:1. This will allow around 8-10 psi(with the right fuel system, intercooler, etc), and would go very well and be still quite responsive down low in the revs.
