  1. ute register

    hi ute-sters, great if you could post here with your general location and any details of your mods (if you want) and maybe a wish list of modifications for the utes gathering info for two door coupes with big boots of the AU-BA XR6-XRT-XR8 variety .... maybe we can get our heads together on our wish lists thanks guys .... this section of the forum needs our energy
  2. Happy Birthday Cobra!

  3. In the next week the moderators will get together and set out the first draft of a clear set of "rules" for ALL members to follow on cruises and similar events. Matters of speeding, wreckless driving and bad behaviour as described in various Cruise threads are unacceptable. Edit: Link Removed. Member's input to these "rules" is invited. These new "rules" will cover issues of speeding, safety on public roads and general behaviour as a group when we get together. This forum (and soon to be club) is a result of tremendous effort and support. The forum is far too valuable to jeopardise with irresponsible behaviour by any of its members. More importantly, we don't want a road kill on our conscience. Please air your thoughts, both positive and negative, and help create the "rules" for a safe and enjoyable environment when we have cruises and events. More track events will be organised to vent the pressure build-up in our right feet and safe/defensive driving instruction courses are also being planned. the FordXR6Turbo.com moderating team

  7. Ba Xr6 Turbo Ute Rear Suspension

    why on earth would you want IRS in a ute ? most of my world is ripping the IRS out of performance cars and replacing it with live axle ..... coil over struts though

  9. Typhoon Questions

    1 - about 11.30 2 - noisy but tough 3 - 15.5 ... 50% mountain driving 50% city 4 - auto's run a 200 rpm over rev limit under wot (I think) ... so the bells would be going off all the time for you ... d'oh the manual rev alerts are not gear change alerts keep it off the peak revs if you are getting Ford servicing .... big brother is watching

  16. Tuner Liability

    I had a brand new car modified and tuned ..... while on the dyno it hurt itself .... the water wasn't checked and not having any water in it did not help spent about $15k with this particular performance shop an unsigned "disclaimer" was shoved into my hand .... I'm told I signed one these forms .... I responded with a "wtf" quote tuner "I take absolutely and categorically no responsability when something goes pear shaped or gets hurt in the shop.... you came to me asking me to help achieve your plans.... you play you pay ... I just try my best to do what I'm asked" the engine had done 350km and it cost me $9000 to rebuild ... the tuner never paid a penny ... he stopped talking to me I do my own work now; don't mind paying for my own mistakes. Do strong and safe tunes ... the last rwkw just ain't worth it most tuners around do the same stuff and get similar results give or take 10% depending on the weather .... it is a rip off when all that happens is the zeros & ones are played on the cars ecu with the "unleash the power" attitude ... never mind your car will die at 10k instead of 100k ... I think they don't really care. Maybe they hope that you sell the car to someone else and allow the tuner to become one further degree removed from the initial rip off basic mechanical improvements are manditory for the best results ... and that doesn't include switching air filters or injectors or exhausts ... they are all easy simple bolt-ons that reduce the life of your asset and in combination with fiddling with a few parameters on the cars ecu will expose the owners of near new cars to grief and debt .... ALONE back next year

  21. F6 Typhoon

    being the proud owner of black BF auto Typhoon I'm biased colour.... go BLACK .... looks so good with the front and rear bars auto ... yes 19" .... nah ... I thought the F6 18s looked better with BLACK ... might go aftermarket and gets some 19x9 in the car ... LCT of 25% on wheels insurance AAMI $275pa with $2000 excess, rating 1 (little do they know ) good luck and enjoy
  22. How Good Really Is The F6?
