Question XE S pack Turbo

Can any one steer me in the right direction to get some info on this car. I was under the impression factory turbos were only fitted to ESP's but my son has come accross one for sale, the seller claims it is factory and it looks factory, I would just like to know for sure

Cheers Mark

Re: XE S pack Turbo

To my knowledge, Ford never made a factory turbo Falcon before the BA.

Re: XE S pack Turbo

I have come across one - an XE S Pack, EFI turbo, 200kw, sold new through a ford dealer, and came with factory warranty. From memory it was done through AIT, though that may need clarification. It had a ford letter with the vehicle covering the turbo conversion. It looked stock, apart from two louvered vents on the bonnet.

Re: XE S pack Turbo

Sounds exactly like the one I took for a spin years ago. Great jigger it was too, went like sh!t off a shovel. 2 vents in the bonnet and a hole cut into the front airdam/bumper for a engine oil cooler. 4 speed, white with gold ESP snowflakes. Letter from AIT and Ford also.

Re: XE S pack Turbo

The XE ESP came out with a turbo option.
The police also had a few XE turbos, not sure if these were also ESP models.

Re: XE S pack Turbo

Does the car come with the owners manual?

The one I looked at a few years ago was dark metallic grey 4sp. Might be worthwhile contacting AIT or the Ford Discovery Centre to see if they have any further info. From the documentation I saw, there were 2 or 3 power output options available, biggest being 200kw

The one I saw also had an extra injector.

Re: XE S pack Turbo

The closest thing to AIT I could find was this:
A.I.T. Turbochargers
Shaws Rd
Cottles Bridge VIC, 3099
Ph: (03) 9714 8589

Not sure if it is the same mob - as the cars were made nearly 20 yrs ago.

Bonnet looks like this one: http://www.boostcruising.com/forums/...=6&entryID=584
