HI, I'm surprised I'm still a member here, its been a while.

anyway, long story short, I was impresed by my cousins (BlueXR6Turbo might be his username, or something like that) BA XR sedan, and I decided to get myself a work ute, so last week, I went and found myself a BA ute.

no its not an XR, but I wanted a traytop, and XR's dont come with traytops, and I couldnt afford a turbo, so I ended up with a secondhand 10-02 build XL ute, so far its all standard, but the list of upgrades seems to be growing pretty quick.

*extractors, exhaust and CAI for now, until I find a cheap XR6T driveline

*really want an LSD

*wheels that are nicer and bigger than the 16" steelies

*lower the suspension, possibly stock XR springs

*custom tail lights and possibly new tray to suit my needs better

*find out where rear speakers go, I would like more music from the standard stereo setup

all these mods arent crazy, but its first and foremost a work car, so I dont want to compromise load or towing capacity more than I need to ;)

oh, and does anyone know if the various chips etc. available for turbos would be applicable to N/A motors?

Take delivery of my first T ute in July. It will be Velocity, hard top, Magnet pack (sports leather, 18 inch wheels, MOMOs/w), other then that bog stock (company vehicle) getting the Gauge Works Fairmont style boost gauge though.

Should be fun, will be the first rear wheeled drive car I have "owned" have always been "into" FWD 4's. :gooff:

Always have been a FORD fan, and now get the chance to drive 'em. :gooff:

I can't believe I never filled this out as one of the original turbo utes in Qld....

Citric Acid Feb 2003, all options from factory, Xede, injectors, aux fuel pump, exhaust, ram pod, clutch. Recent additions - PBR performance brake package (Hallejuyah!!!), and awaiting PWR single pass 'cooler due next week for further retuning by ChipTorque. Plenty 'o grunt for a stinking load lugger. Although, bcl's engine intrigues me................

This thing really never gets driven as I have another car I use for work. It is fun having a "project". :laughing:

Ive recently became a ute owner. Was original hunting for a modded ute but this one came up and was too good to let go.

Looks like a fairly basic Mercury Silver workmans ute complete with toolboxes. Lift the bonnet and it tells a different story.

Car is an auto has been blue printed and balanced with forged rods & pistons, basically a APS phase 3 kit, larger intercooler, K&N filter, strengthen drive train, auto has 2700rpm stall, 4 inch exhaust, plumb back BOV. And is apparently runing a fairly conservative 13 1/2 PSI boost.

Also has 18" factory rims, leather trim, 6 stacker, tool box behind the seat, and custom tool box with racks and modified soft cover.

Full story.. here: http://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/index.ph...topic=17275&hl=

Best car ive every owned. Can't get enough of this!

Gold Coast (soon to be Forest Lake - Brisbane)

Aug 2004 Mandarin 5 speed XR6T Ute with 18" rims and 6 stacker CD.

1st day I've had it so quite happy with it at the moment.

Only mods (already on 2nd hand ute): SS Inductions CAI, BMC air filter.

Future mods: A cheap but reliable premium brake solution would be a REALLY good idea as well.

BMC now replaced by K&N filter.

Future plans.

EDIT

or

340KW Kit done through RDP (Redcliffe Dyno).

Welcome to the forum XR6TU, enjoy your stay but look out for those evil moderators as they can be quite nasty at times (actually most of the time).

Trent.

PS:

- Have you managed to get the grin off your face yet?

- Why aren't you out doing laps?

- Is Forest Lake actually Brisbane?

North west NSW- 03 xr6t manual (blueprint) a few things done incl Flasher- currently reliving my youth.

These things go quite well actually, although a bit primitive in the handling department (poor rebound dampening and you gotta love those leaf springs!) and ordinary brakes. Plently of ways to improve it though! There are many good bits available. :laughing:
