hmmmmm, what does that tell us though?
That a hot turbo6 is on the way or maybe an FPV Focus?
Or both... But that quote is nothing new. It's been up on the FPV website from day one.

270kw for a Turbo 6 is a good figure. 30kw up on the XR6T, the same power difference between the XR8 and GT.

i just suggest dont make it too high too quickly, holdens v6 is out soon, and i hear they will also have a turbo version, so i wouldnt want ford to top out and then not be able to fire back.

I doubt we'll see a turbo HFV6 in a Commodore for a very very long time, if ever... and certainly not within the next model upgrade.

Alfa may potentially get one, but I have serious doubts about Holden ever seeing one.

Just look at the numbers being talked about early in this thread... 320.

240kW ~ 320hp.

Personally I reckon its a misunderstanding more than anything.

Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...
