  1. 6.1/6.2 litre ohc v8

    FPV & Tickford Forum
    Well from my last post i said how crap Ford US' next-gen V6 was going to be. They just unveiled a new V6 and im assuming this is that next-gen engine: ENGINE Type 3.5L DOHC 24-valve V-6 Manufacturing Location Lima Engine Plant, Ohio Configuration 60-degree V-6, aluminum block and heads...
  2. 6.1/6.2 litre ohc v8

    FPV & Tickford Forum
    Like i said, if this is the 'hurricane' project that ford was building, then they cancelled in ages ago since ford US believe that this big V8 lust that people are having is just a temporary fad. They cancelled it also to put more effort on their next-gen V6... yes its not a hydrogen engine, but...

    I'm assuming you're referring to the 'hurricane' project that ford US was developing, which was a 6.2L V8.......that was cancelled months ago. Unless you're talkin about a totally different engine program, which i hope you are, but highly doubt it.

    If you just look at the thumbnail of the link to the picture in the post above mine, it kinaa resembles an FPV typhoon. Will all fords resemble FPV cars now? anyways like i said in LS1 forums, Ford aus seem to be taking the Ford global-look approach. The bottom air grill with that white plastic...

    hmm for the next GTHO they'll need a good engine. From the Ford network worldwide, they don't have a good enough engine to fulfil the legend. If they do bring it out, the only engine i can think they'll use is the new Shelby Mustangs supercharged 5.4L, personally i think thats a stupid idea, i...

  9. Another Broken FPV

    FPV & Tickford Forum
    Mate..........are you talkin about the new F6 clutch stuffing up on you again??? Cus seriously, if F6's start doin that again after FPV supposedly fixed the clutch up, then man, the F6 would have to be the biggest bomb of 2005.
  10. Phone call from FPV - CLUTCH IS FIXED !!!!

    F6 Typhoon | XR6 Turbo
    Awesome news there mate. Hopefully you'd be able to get high 13s with that thing when u get the fix done! As for the ECU upgrade, I'd be careful if i were you cus supposedly Ford has been doin a silent recall with the XR6T, when they get serviced the dealership actually does this chip upgrade to...
  11. Is this a joke?

    Australian Falcons
    If anyone read the Motortrend article about the GR-1 concept, they reckon it'll have a 7.0L 'hurricane' V8........ What a load of BULLSH*T. Are Motor Trend dumb or what? Ford already cancelled the hurricane project, and here they are making a rumour about an even bigger V8? Are they trying to...
  12. The F6... The (P76) Cult Car of the 21st Century

    F6 Typhoon | XR6 Turbo
    Man I'd know how you feel. This is the downside of being loyal you see, no matter what shit a car company gets into, you stay by them. Though i havent bought or owned a ford before, im only 19, this is seriously affecting my decision to ever buy one in the near future. My current car which my...
  13. ZF 6 speed auto in Oct

    Australian Falcons
    Yeh i kno, a 182kw (DIN) falc. really has somethin like 176kw (ECE). I'm saying that Ford's giving us numbers that arent really comparable to Holdens (we thought the GT had like 290kw, but when Holden sh*t themselves they brought up this ECE DIN argument and showed us that their engines actually...

Finally Ford oz is doin somethin right, and it's good to hear they're gonna do a mild facelift (better than nothin) to the falc. Bad news about this is 1) base models retain the 4 speed (not that its...
