ba series 11 info

i have a friend who works at ford who has tld me some info about the series 2. He hasn't lied b4 so I presume this is accurate.

After holdens hfv6 the vct on the ford will be properly utilized and will make either 196kw or 205 kw (400nm -, 100nm per litre) depending on the holden figure. The sole purpose is to outpower holden.
traction control standard on futura
sports susp (ghia spec) a no cost option
xr6 turbo gains same 5 speed as f6 typhoon
new black velour option

he also tells me that fpv has plans for when gen 4 gm v8 comes out
xr8 - gains gt spec motor but for ulp - 280kw - 510nm

gt - 540nm


fpv are testing a bored out v8 (5.8l)

there is also talk of lite weight accessories - bonnet, boot, alloy blocks, ligther seats, front guards but is is very expensive

maybe for the gtho eh?

I did'nt know there was a series 11 BA I though they still had'nt annouced the second.
Just Joking...


But the thing you said about Ford trying to outpower Holden does'nt sound right.

I don't think the whole thing about increasing power makes for a better or more enjoyable car necessarily, but there is no doubting many like the bragging rights these upgrades in power offer. So why do you think the claim Ford will boost power across the Falcon range for series 2, doesnt sound right?

I can only imagine Holden owners and Holden themselves will use such claims if the advantage is in their court.

P.S. Does anyone else worry about some politician using all these bigger and more powerful engines as an excuse to restart the scare about over powered cars, like they used in the early '70's for votes.

As for interior changes id say they will change the instrument clusters a little, maybe change the lighting colours at night time.

Wheels will be changed for sure, and I also think that the Fairmont Ghia and Fairlane Ghia will get proper Foglamps this time, rather then the stupid Turning Lamps they have been playing around with since release.
If the Fairmont goes then I hope the world is swallowed up by the fires of hell, because life certainly wont be worth living!

It outsell the Ghia so why would it go, if anything if you don't want leather it is the better value of the two.

Re: ba series 11 info

sorry to have to say this, but if i had a dollar for every single change ive either read about or heard about that is coming with BA II, I'd be rich enough to afford one of the bloody things. And If I was counting the number of times Ive heard potshots at the release date.............

Lets just wait and see what happens eh?

If your freind told you all of this then he is in breach of the confidentiality agreement Ford have with their employees.

Re: ba series 11 info

Surely if this many people are purchasing XR's then the resale value wouldn't been as high as one would expect it to be due to so many of them being on the road now.

I can see it already when future models are released...
Dealer: "Oh, great another XR"

Also, here's something that might sell... Falcon XT, XR6t motor
