Amazing way to fix the XR6T's dominance over XR8 and F6

I think Ford have been very creative with the old "your turbo is quiker than the V8 and Typhoon" scenario.......... " Let's make the Turbo slower!"
I've just read the May Motor and am disgusted to read that rather than being quiker the XR6T is slower ( this particular car anyway) than all other XR6T's tested before. It was a 6-speed manual and ran a 14.81 for the quarter!!! Not happy Henry!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Relax
Some of the older XR6T's went like the hammers from Hell but most were average and high 14 was normal.
You look at dyno numbers for the XR6T's and they seem to vary anything from 170 odd RWKS to some 209rwkws and the same for 1/4 times they are all over the place.

Some early Dynos on the F6 were as low as 205 rwkws and some over 220 rwkws, the same thing with those and reports of some going like Hell and some needing to be shot!

For a prospective buyer thats not exactly reassuring to know.

Too right "Headache". There hasn't been a direct comparo. I believe one is on the way soon though.

You are spot on on another forum(lets just saywith the word turbo in the address) people with series one xr6t`s are being advised not to let the dealers flash their ecu if they don`t want it being slower, especially people with edits are having to go back to their tuners to get their cars retuned.

Re: Amazing way to fix the XR6T's dominance over XR8 and F6

Mine has the latest flash and its fine, if anything it goes harder. My best friend owns a sedan manual, and side by side with my ute carying its hefty kerb weight I can still out accelarate him in any gear, slowly but noticably.

The difference in performance is greatly affected by production tollerances, my ute may have a lucky combination of parts, my mates may not have. Regardles of the tune, some will go much harder than others.

And if its that much of a hassle, fork out the $1295 and get an edit, then Ford can't touch your ECU any more and you'll be making 20% more power and torque, and saving fuel at the same time. Pays for itself
