Did Ford release an EA Turbo?

I need help in settling an argument. Did Ford ever release an EA turbo or was it an aftermarket company that created it?

Thanks...

Ford never released an EA Falcon with a Turbo.

AIT did a few conversions in the late 1980's.

No, the BROCK EA was not Turbo Charged and it was not backed by Ford.

When i was looking at buying this written off SVO(for the engine & 5spd) at Weribee last year, i met some guy there checking this car out also, he told me he had an Ea Ghia with factory turbo and that it was 1 of the 14 that was made..!!!? Anyone?

I don't think there was ever an EA factory turbo

AIT and SVO did produce such a car; ie ea turbo

Brock falcon; off the track but WTF? A Peter Brock falcon, ive seen them but still don't get it, thats like a Johson Commodore? How the **** did they sell?

AIT sold the kits to SVO for fitment. There were 3 kits of various HP ratings and were fitted to new vehicles that could be ordered through the local Ford dealer.

I know hard to swallow but there were Brock Falcon's I think it was the same time when he raced the Seira's the same time HDT turned to HSV/HRT, thing's were a bit ugly between Brock,Holden and TWR the then new owner and Brock wasnt happy with the TWR ownership and the rest is history.
