Re: turbo XF

I was real keen on doing this a while ago...they do a complete work over of your whole car for roughly 10k....that's turbo'd, strengthened internals, diff etc. I never went any further with it because i am a poor uni student and i came to my senses.

Re: turbo XF

If your going to the extremes of a full rebuild, i would recommend putting in a 200ci crank. The prob with the 250 is that they are an under square engine. ie the stroke is greater than the bore, which is the reason they have so much torque. It also means that when you turbo charge the engine, the usable power band is very small. You could end u pwith a car that comes on boost at about 2500rpm, but hits peak power at 4200rpm, is is the case with a lot of turbo falcon 6's. With the 200 crank, you get an almost square engine, a larger range in your power band, and much better drivability.
Just my opinion.

Re: turbo XF

Do latter model cranks fit ?? Forced induction makes them rev. It's the internals strength thats the limiting factor. Agree shorter stroke is better...
