We visited the FPV factory last week and asked this question. l was told that FPV fit the turbo and manifolds, intercooler, piping, and the heatshielding. Probably a few other minor bits l forgot to mention. The basic engine is obviously fitted on the Ford production line, but not the turbo which l found suprising. If you have options such as sunroof, 18"s, premium brakes etc then these too are done by FPV.

The XR8 also goes to FPV to have heatshielding fitted, and something else fairly minor that l cant recall. Bloody Alzheimer’s!

I do know that the turbo manifold requires a different exhaust and also the manifold and peripherals are considered too difficult and/ or hazardous to do on the normal line (manifold alone weighs 8kg or so). Besides FPV developed the turbo rig and are best placed to finish it off.

As for the XR8 I believe the minor work is/was the air intake pipe/ cone etc.

Here's confirmation. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the photo I took at the FPV Day of a Naturally Aspirated XR6 Turbo.




Here's a pic of some of the nice bits that go into it.
