I just bought one dude, and Ford and its employees have been told to focus on quality for 2004.Primo said:Has anyone had or heard of any problems or faults with the BA Turbo,as I am thinking of purchasing one.
Sorry to highjack the thread, however I am very keen on buying an XR6T!xr6t8u said:...Modify the car, and it's another matter. If an auto, go to 260-280rwkw, and your best to upgrade/strengthen your auto; if manual, go tor 280rwkw and you'll need a new clutch, as it will slip, over 300rwkw and you'll possibly destroy your gearbox (how do I know: mine is stuffed).
I should probably read the rest of the replies, but..........Primo said:I can understand all cars have faults,but my primary concern is the actual turbo itself and driveline,wether or not it can handle all that power.I just hope they don't go the way of most turbo cars,forever in the workshop.Thanks very much for the feedback.
Check out some of the other forums on the XR6T and you'll find that the manual box has proven to be stronger than the auto. Some of the aftermarket tuners have development mules which have been happily running well beyond 300KW without driveline failures.djgelling said:I should probably read the rest of the replies, but..........
It appears that the drive train of choice is the SSS Auto, unless you absolutely must change gears yourself. It's stronger, has less hassle with drivetrain clunks and thumps and will cope better with any mods that you do. If you cast around you will find that the consnsus is that the Auto is good for upto about 300kw, whereas the Manual is marginal at standard power.
