  1. Hi all, Just joined this forum and this is my first post. Just brought a 2009 Fg XR6 turbo. can some of you forum gurus help me with these question. I know some might sound silly and simple, 1. Is there any way to find how much fuel I have left in my fuel tank in litres. 2. The RANGE mode of my Cluster is it accurate? It reached 0Km today and beeped but I could still drive it for another 2 kms is that right? does'nt that mean my fuel tank is empty? 3. How do I know when my fuel goes in reserve. How many litres is the reserve tank? Help much appreciated.
  2. Gents, This will be a long read - with many questions - but I see plenty of people asking and the information is scattered or not correct over the net. I was hoping to not only receive but give, by providing a in depth build thread... I like to dabble in cars quite a bit, A good friend of mine has A nice Black FG XR6 flat tray non turbo ute. Lowered, painted black gloss stock 18inch wheels - he had Ford install an LSD and I beleive the bonnet is sporting a FPV Bonnet bulge... The plan is to either find a wrecked XR6T,or a Complete motor and harness / box, or a Complete motor, or what have you to make this work in typical backyard budget built not bought style. We are not wanting to spend more than $6k or so on stage one. ---> Fit, Tune and Run the car as a Turbo. Later progress when the car is revoked from "work" duties, plans will get a little more serious. So queries I have for the Motor specialists to get us started. 1) Are the XR6T motors all the same and should we just stick to FG motors only...? 2) What is the difference mechanically between the N/A and Turbo Falcons? ( Block, Crank - Rods - Pistons - Rings - Head, Cams, Valves, Injectors, Radiator, ECU ) The differences will help me plan an attack on the motor - Can I upgrade the Pistons and Rings - cyl head then just bolt Turbo stuff on? Or are the motors significantly different? 3) It's manual - is there any difference in the gearboxes between N/A to Turbo? Is the bolt pattern different? Please feel free to offer any parts you may have for sale that will help with our project (within budget) - ideas - opinions, obviously relevant and helpful. If you have complete motor - or a long motor ect... But remember we have to stick to our budget for the first stage as yes money is an issue and also it is used as a Delivery / work vehicle for the next year. Im sure if you have old antique furniture or special wood which you want restored my mate would gladly trade his services for parts as this is his bread and butter. His work is awesome. We are looking for a base to start the transformation, I have taken on numerous projects but never with the blue oval badge so if some of my questions seem basic - forgive me. Any help would be fantastic. Regards Dave
  3. Hey Guys, A while back I was looking around for information on whether to put snow chains on my FG XRT6, and it was suggested that I pick up some territory wheels. I did that, had 235/45/17 tyres put on them (did all four so I can have some track fun when the weather warms up) and then got hold of some Konig K7 chains which are 7mm and designed for cars without much clearance. I've just tested them out, and used my phone to see what was going on behind. I'm comfortable with the gaps and a slow roll down the driveway with all windows down didn't result in any untoward noises. Going to head to the snow tomorrow, and hopefully won't need them, but if I do I'll be sure to report back. Either way, here's some of the footage I recorded which shows the clearance this chain & wheel combo does have, hopefully it'll help some others out.
  4. Hi All, For anyone who wanted to know what an Xforce 3" Stainless Cat Back sounded like on an F6 during take off and drive by in 2nd gear. Here's a clip.
  5. Starting a new thread for people of the goldfields area. We should get together for some cruises or fundraisers etc. Not much to do in this part of the world so let me know of any people around who are interested!
  6. hey everyone im fairly new to the forums and have owned my nitro blue fg xr6 auto for 2 months now and I love it ive just started thinking about mods.after reading the forums and doing a little work I think ive got a plan im planing to do all the mods at once after owning the car for about 7 months (first service + a month) to get the most out of the warranty, as ive done on all of my cars in the past, im gonna work on making it breath as best as possible keeping to lowsh boost levels, im goin to start buying some parts slowly maby install some if safe, so far im thinking 1000hp plazmaman intercooler kit ,battery relocate, turbo side air intake new bov ,f6 injectors,new fuel pump , valve springs cam regrind/new cams , new leads plugs and coils turbo manifold, turbo bag, 4 inch dump 4/5inch 100c cat 4 inch s/s system with 2 hiflow mufflers mods to the turbo to controll boost ,lower diff gears 19inch rims with good sticky rubber and depending on how it gets power to the ground maby the shocks and springs. aitkenvale dyno in townsville will be doing the job so its gonna be up to them in the end in terms with the cam and computer/tune diff gears I want it to come on as early as possible and sound awsome, budget for the engine work is about 10k (what im telling the misus) but is probly gonna be a bit more just my adding the mods listed in my head, but I plan to own this car for a long time so spending the extra 5gs to make it make the power with eaze seems to be the right thing to do, so what do u guys think of my parts list input would be great ill put a pic of the car up for u guys, standard and still sexy
  7. Hey All I have a FG XR6t ute and was looking to get some 19in BBS CH-R black rims. I was told by the local tyrepower man that BBS were no more and he's suggested a set of Speedy Cheetah's instead. Does anyone know if BBS have finished up, and if Speedy are any good. Looking at 19 x 8 on the front and 19 x 9.5 on the rear, don't really understand the offset thing. Will this fill out the FG guards? All opinions are welcome.
  8. Hey Guys, If your like me, Your Blue blooded through and through. It's been my dream since the day I knew what a car was to own my version of Ford glory, and it all happened for me in May of this year. I've just bought a BF FPV MkII Tornado, and although somebody elses eyes gleamed as it rolled of the showroom floor (I'll get there one day), she's mine now and I have no intention of trading her in anytime soon! But If you'r like me and you also feel the same way about your baby, you wanna know more about the origions and exclusivity of your pride and joy, so I thought a good way would be by posting the Build No, Make, Model and length of time owned in a bid to find out more! My car: Build No. 180 2006 BF MkII F6 Tornado, has Ego Paint Job, Premium Sound and the Brembo Package. (Would also love to know if anyone knows anything about the build no's - exclusivity to models, special model #'s etc etc) I know the car started out life being driven around Sydney, then was sent to Adelaide, and had at least one owner before I got my hands on it! Now I know someone out there didn't just order an BF F6 ute with a brembo package for a work horse - they wanted to have some fun! They probably loved it just as much as me, and well if there is one place I know where ford lovers hang out, this is definately one of them! So if you were once the proud owner of Build No. 180, I'd love to hear from you! Or if you would like to find out more about your own beast... post away! Cheers!
