Hi a friend of mine is looking to buy an XR6 Turbo engine and i'm wondering if anyone on here would know where there is one for sale and how much it might cost.

all help appreciated

Ford might sell you one in bubble wrap, prob set you back in excess of ten grand but. Your chances are slim to find one, especailly since for $4000 you could turbo any 4.0 motor from 1992-2002 and get the same numbers.

Also it is for a guy who is looking at developing his own kits for them similar to the aps and nizpro ones.

Look at the auctions for a wrecked one... That would be the cheapest option, and you get a few extras like gearbox and diff. You can also recoup some $$$ selling the bits you don't need. But going to Ford for a new one would cost big $$$$.

I tried to order a complete turbo engine from Ford, they rejected the order. So i rang order control, they said 'no you cant order one unless you have an XR6 Turbo.' I replied that my customer has 2 of them and wishes to have a spare motor for development and they still said no. Go figure, i thought a sale was a sale to ford NPD but obviously not.

MMMMmmm, one of these would go nicely in my ED, but how would you get around the Fly by wire throttle?
Or could you use an AU set up?
Go on Kerry - you'll be happy with the result!
