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 stop overboost i think it was. And from XR6T owners, supposedly it feels alot slower.......NOT GOOD.

Apparentley, ( cause no one bothers to foo-king ring me ) mine is getting fixed on the 19th. I might have to make a little noise cause I am severely unimpressed with that. I also had a sales manager say to me yesterday " What clutch problem, I have not heard of one ". Really, isn't that why you don't have any on the showroom floor and are unable to sell any. Winge over.

Yes, I have heard the same thing in regards to the ECU reprogram for the XR6T...Although FPV are saying it is for smoother / better power up top over the 4500rpm range. Should not matter because as soon as the clutch gets done it will be EDIT TIME for some real performance :driver: !!!!!

Mate,

Dont get your hopes up to much. I got a call from Jarred at FPV a couple of days before Anzac Day to tell me that the clutch is fixed and Ford would be announcing it on Tuesday 26 March. Was going to be a big press release!

Well nothing happened? ..... sort of another variant on the "in the next two weeks" theme I have been getting for a while. Fortunately I have not had any problems with my the clutch .

As for the ECU upgrade.... I will believe that when I see it. My typhoon was only producing 192 rwkw. Fortunately with some help from Xtreme tuning this has been fixed :hy:

cheers
