Question ED Falcon Turbo

I have an ED 4.0 litre Falcon Futura and I would be interested in fitting the turbo kit listed below from Snort Performance in Albury. I read the article on turbo charging Ford sixes in the Street machine magazine. I didn't realise how much potential these motors have. I will be joining a local car club and compete in some drag racing events, I would like around 6 pounds of boost.

I just have a couple of questions to ask so if anyone could help that would be great. Does anyone in Sydney offer a fitting service and if yes, how much to drive in and drive out for the stage 2 turbo kit ? What sort of testing would be required to ensure the engine is in good condition to have a turbo fitted? Is a engineers certificate required, where do I get these from?

There was also mentioned in the Street Machine article some additional issues/parts that may be required like, good fuel supply, engine oil breathing system, aftermarket catch can. What if any of these components would be required?

I have been unable to get in contact with Snort Performance, must be on holidays.

Re: ED Falcon Turbo

Mate take it from me it all starts out nice and cheap and than BANG there goes the engine or diff or gearbox, and next thing you Know you have spent $30000. I have my turbo falcon for sale, its in the forsale section with all the specs and pictures buy this and you will have a legal car for half the price of building one.

cool Re: ED Falcon Turbo

Hi there EA TURBO,

I hear what your saying about engine mods and the little extras that add up, but I'm only after a basic setup of 6 pounds boost. From what I've been reading around the place, this basic stage 2 setup on offer is a good package for a healthy gain of about 90 kw at the wheels, did your car start small and get biggger overtime or did you shoot straight for the top of the line mod? Has anyone had the same experience with the kind of modification?

Tongue Re: ED Falcon Turbo

I here ya mate, I've decided to go for the Snort Performance stage 2 turbo kit and I'll get them to fit it for me. A couple of extras that I'm told I need are, shift kit for the auto, battery to the boot, intercooler, better fuel regulator(at only 6 psi could get away with not using this, but again, its good to have for future mods). My budget for the turbo is $5000 which should be acheivable, the only must have extra is upgraged dba brake package which is around $1750 - $2000 fitted. Other than that, the car will be a sleeper.

If anyone else out there has some advice with building these turbo fords, advice would be welcomed.

Thats really Good advice there Hoon69, what sort of experience do you have building and owning a turbo falcon. Sorry but a carnt see the value in spending $7000 on a ED Falcon when the engine gearbox and diff are going to need a Full overhaul in the next 12months, Theres a bloke named Mick Malta on these forums that brought my old turbo set up and with 200rwkw he has destroyed his motor and Gearbox. Turboing a car is cheap, doing it using Quality Parts and having it hold together with over 300rwkw is very expensive, but hey what would i know
