Re: Help me identify this "Factory" Turbo ZL f'lane
i agree with ap here, ait, got cars delivered to them direct, then ait would fit the turbo system, fully adr and emmisions complied, they were like a a tickford but back in the 80's when the world was ga ga crazy, over turbo's
they also carried over into the ea falcons..
dick johnson also came up with turbo xd/xe/xf's but their fate was sealed by the fact that ford aust. didnt want to support it due to hot weather testing failures.... this was also the case for the ea turbo developed by ait and svo along with help from avo turbo world.
the ea turbo was to come out with the ea's as a sports model, but again failed in hot weather testing. this explains why the falcon ohc engine just loves boost (even in a standard engine).
kieron- that xf pictured was a protoype done by a group in melbourne, it was 4wd, and twin turbo'd.
they made 2 demo's.. dont cant remember where one was taken to, but the other one was written off by a jurno, in england on a wet, gravel road.
