  1. Hi all, Am a full newbie to the fordxr6turbo forum, or any forum for that matter, and just thought I'd share my experience in converting my BA mk2 XT wagon into a turbo/manual/lLSD equipped weapon. Got a bit fed up with how much choice Expensive Daewoo fan's have when it comes to a quick wagon and was always pretty cut about ford never making a BA or BF (or even FG) wagon that had some poke. Massive missed opportunity. Anyway, I got a bit of inspo from looking at other members conversions on this forum where they'd converted their taxi's into turbo WMD's a
  2. Hi, I'm looking at exhaust options for my currently all stock xr6T BF MKII. I want it to be a little louder but am mainly after a nicer exhaust note and the ability to allow for higher flow if I choose to do some performance mods (I'm not going after any crazy kw numbers and am happy to keep it at stock or near stock power for the moment). I'm also deciding between catback or turboback options and price isn't too much of a concern but obviously if I can save a couple of bucks that'd be nice. I've seen brands like xforce, venom and a couple of others and was hoping you guys can share your perso
  3. Hey guys, I recently bought my first BF mk2 XR6t and I'm having issues with the manul transmission not going into gear easily at cold start. I'm just wondering what gearbox oil do you guys recommend using. I've done some research and found the Penrite 70w-75 seems to be a popular one instore but also noticed that Ford recommends Dexron iii. I'm kind of confused as the Dexron iii seems to be for automatic transmissions, am I missing something or is the oil compatible with both manual and auto? Cheers for the help.
  4. hey guys theres been alot of talk on the bf xr6t im hearing lots of different things about it, people saying they have the same internals/engine as the bf typhoon, if true is it from 2006 upwards or 2007? and is there any difference mechanicals wise between the bf mk2 or mk1? thanks
  5. I’ve found a welded diff from a BF XR6 6 speed auto, and I’m wondering if it will go into my Manual BA?
  6. Hi there, I have a 2006 BF XR6 Falcon. All of a sudden my cluster and park lights stopped working.. My indicators, low/high beam and break lights work fine, pulled all fuses and checked them and all was good? Also I seen some other forums about this issue and seen that the combination switch are a common issue, so I checked that and didnt see any stripped/cut wires on the sharp turn of the green clip that pushes into the socket above the ignition and down the rest of the wires? Quite stumped tbh...Does anyone know what or if theres a fuse f
  7. I have a 2007 XR6 BF MK2 Ford Falcon and I want to change the colour of the dash from blue to green, same with the headunit. Is either possible and if so are there any tutorials, tips or where to get the LED's to do so. Thanks.
  8. Hey guys does anyone have any idea how to pop the hood on a 2006 bf xr6 the hood release cable has snapped completely clean the cable including the little ball on the end of the cable have ripped out I've tried everything thanks
  9. I have a BF XR6 and the motor is in very bad shape. I have a greenhead gas Barra that I pulled out of a BF, if I ran that on petrol, would it be slower?? Or faster??? I know the gas Barra has higher compression but with the more heavy duty rods will my power output be less? And no I can’t turbo it because I’m on my Ps lol.
  10. BA ICC Unit issue, Stereo dropped out and aircon whilst driving and won't turn on or work when manually try to turn on ICC,blank screen and still no fan or aircon.... Things to check or anything suggested to rectify the problem?
  11. What’s needed to change rocker cover on an na ba to the fg one? I’m told I’ll have to change either coils to fg ones or use something to keep the coils down from poping off while under load with the stock ba/bf coils and I’ll need to change the manifold? Thanks in advance
  12. I'm looking at getting a xr6 turbo, preferably 06 and upwards but still the ba/bf body, I want to get 500-550hp to the wheels but I dont know about a couple things and hope some of you know and can help me, 1. I've heard the bf 06 and onwards blocks are the typhoon blocks and are the stronger ones and are better to use? 2. Is the bf or fg engine better? Is the head different on the fg or what are the differences between the bf and fg block and head. 3. Can you put a t5 manual trans on a fg turbo engine? Then put that in the ba/
  13. Can you still buy these for bf? Thanks.
  14. Hi, Does anyone know if side skirts from a 2006 BF Falcon XT sedan fit on a 2004 XR6 BA MKII sedan? Thanks in advance, Nick
  15. Hi all dont crucify me if its already been asked but im having issues and im stumped as to why . 2007 xr6 turbo manual bf ive recently changed water pump , done new hoses ,changed temp sensor ,thermostat and changed and flushed cooolant 2 times now . And today I even went out of my way to let the car run with the filler bottle cap off and long story short the car runs considered normal temps when the cap is off (just above quarter) and every so often spikes up and does the usual thermo fans kick in cools it down then back to normal thermo fans shut off . But when the filler cap is then placed
  16. Hi I know the whole 'mail order tune' idea is frowned upon mostly but I'm not looking to gain heaps nor continue to pursue power, but if anyone has a 10psi tune for a stock ba xr6T that that goes on a SCT X3 they could share I'd be really greatful! Thanks guys/girls
  17. Hey guys. I'm having harmonic driveline vibrations in my '07 Manual typhoon. But first a run down on the history of the car. Bought in 2011 with only 17 000 ks, and had stuffed diff bushes from the get go, that was fixed firstly by ford. They lasted about 5000ks and were pooched. The next diff bush endeavour was done at an independent shop and all three bushes were replaced with nolathane polyurathane (or however you spell that) bushes. Now.. this uncovered the first vibration! turns out the tailshaft was out of balance quite badly, and wasn't noticed previously due to the bus
  18. Hey guys, So just bought a set of king springs for my BF MK2 XR6 and realised that I've accidentally ordered BF MK1 springs. On king spring's catalogue they say theres a difference in the seat or something but I've read else where that there's 2 positions on it so it might work. I was wondering if someone could shine some light on this? I've messaged the ebay guy asking for a swap but if these working for mine then it'll save me a lot of effort. These are the springs I bought: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/FORD-FALCON-BA-BF-XR6-SEDAN-2002-6-2007-SUPER-LOW-50mm-F-R-LOWERED-
  19. Decided to do a build thread so I have all my mods documented in one place. BF2 - 2007 - #0166 - Lightning Strike Silver - Manual - 80,000km - Fully optioned - Est 350rwkw (getting tuned this week) I bought this ute in January 2013. I found it on carsales, it was up in North Sydney.The guy I bought it from was the original owner and still had all the original documents and receipts from Ford which was nice. I did see a total figure of $67,000 when he bought it new. Geeez. lot of money for a ute. I payed 22k for it. It was in really good condition cosmetically. 64,000km on the clock. Complete
  20. Hi Guys, As the title states I'm hoping someone on here can answer a few questions about the conversion I'm about to undertake on my BF wagon. I've already purchased a wrecked BF turbo 6speed manual ute from the auctions to donate engine, diff and other bits and pieces into the goon, note I still want to retain the btr not the manual tranny. The main problem I've got is what PCM can I use in the goon? I talked to the tuner I'll be taking it to after the conversion is finished and he told me to use the turbo computer as it obviously has the ability to control the wastegate
  21. Anyone know why my bf xr6t is making a clunking/clicking/tapping noise, its coming from the front left I think!? I took the wheel off and I think I checked all the bushes and they seemed fine but im nomechanic, only one I was abit worried about was the ball joint bush, it wasnt split just looked like wornish? I also attempted to check the ball joint and no noises by shaking the wheel.. I didnt jack up both sides though if that effects it? It was really dry though when I unbolted the upper control arm. And its also worse when theres passengers in the car and when turnin
  22. BUYING! Looking for a BF NA XR6 in Obsession OR Fantasy OR Breeze! Car must have under 100k on the clock and ZF 6 speed auto and Premuim sound. If you know anyone that has or is selling one PLEASE let me know because I will pay good money for one!
  23. I have noticed that there is significant differences in ignition timing between a standard 2007 F6 BF and a standard 2009 F6 FG. The load scales are different, but the FG igntion table is quite a bit more advanced in most areas of the table. Given that the FG F6 runs slightly higher boost than the BF F6, I would have thought that if anything the F6 FG would have had less ignition advance than the BF. It looks to me like the the F6 FG assumes a higher octane rating in the borderline knock table (ie 98RON fuel), will pull the timing back through knock retard if 91RON or 95RON is u
  24. I recently bought a Falcon BF 2007 Turbo and realized that the Rear Diff is dead. If changing the gear from Park to Reverse or any gear except neutral it can create a continuous clunking sound and it is not running at all. Is there any chance to change the diff with different ratio because the ratio of the dead diff was 3.23 LSD. Is there any difference between turbo diff to non-turbo diff?. what is the better diff ratio for just daily driving? Can I use any diffs from any ford falcon?. Thank you in advance in helping a newbie.
  25. Here is a photographic guide how to change the interior light globes in your BF XR Falcon. Firstly, here is a link to where I got my globes from. Very fast postage and very nice product. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/FORD-BA-BF-XT-XR6-XR8-TURBO-F6-INTERIOR-LIGHT-KIT-WHITE-/220755235240?pt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&hash=item33660991a8&_uhb=1#ht_5549wt_986 ----------------------------------------------- Reading Lights ----------------------------------------------- Remove the housing by grabbing from one corner and pulling down until clips release.
