  1. Hello I currently have rebuild my BTR trans for my turbo eb and running it with deleted s3 and s4 solenoids , but im having trouble finding some good info on modifying the BAR circuit as I understand from my drawings the bar spring is located behind the S4 solenoid? 1) do people just shim the spring and by how much to get increased pressure has any got some good pictures of the BAR mod 2) when I select low manually with shifter I get a slight hydraulic buzzing noise if I go out of low and back in its ok is this a oil supply issue to solenoid Cheers
  2. Hi guy first time car owner was just after suggestions on mods I can add to my 2014 fg falcon xr6. Now bare with me as I’m slowly but surely get a lil car savy lol but any advice would be great PS I see in other forums something called a CAT so anything like that if u could put it in lamen terms that would be great cheers in advance
  3. This may need to go to the modification & workshop section. sorry. Hi everyone. First post but I've been a long time lurker. I'm a proud owner of a MKI BF XR6 turbo and am planning a few budget mods. I welcome a few hard opinions and ideas from you guys to see if I'm close to the right track and I've got a few questions too. The car is going to be kept fairly sleeper by the looks of it. First a bit about the car. 144,000km, Second owner and was owned by a middle aged couple with kids. The guys wife mainly drove the car and I'd be surprised if it's ever p
  4. Hey lads So tax time is has arrived! :D and I'm very bored with stock power! So I'm getting a X-force 4inch dump and high flow cats put on for $1500 and straight after I'll be getting it tuned. Prices for a SCT flash tune Xcal4 or X4 I'm not to sure of the name of it was $2200 with 3 custom tunes, he was also saying another option was a direct file remap for $1650 but I've been told they're sh*t so wont be doing that. Also I can get a boost controller high revs comp for $1100 but is that worth getting??? I'm pretty sure he was saying that option adds so I can change the
  5. Hi All second post so newbie to the max and ford true blue! I bought an ex cop FGX and want to do some minor mods any tips to get the most out of my new prize beast?
  6. Hey guys, So about two months ago I bought a BA XR6 N/A, I'm loving it for a first car but I just want a couple extra KWs. All I want to know is what would be the most effective way to get a touch extra out of it without spending all my cash ( I don't want to spend over $3500 though I could go to $5000). I've heard that just a new air filter and a good tune up can give me 10 to 20 extra kilowatts. Is there anything to back this up or is this just someone talking out their arse? I understand that a new exhaust could add a bit but I hate the noise, I like my car to look and sound good. Are there
  7. Hi guys I have a 2009 FG XR6T (manual) I have done some mods to it as listed below and get 300rwkw atm. But I am not satisfied with the tune....it runs ok but smokes a bit and sometimes even pings on uphill 3rd gear in high revs. I want to find a genuine good tuning place where the guys do a good job and know what they are doing. Currently: I have full turbo back 4inch exhaust, upgraded valve springs, bigger injectors, and a tune. Boosts upto 15PSI. PS I do not have a flash tuner atm they just tuned it on the same ECU. All I want to do is upgrade the intercooler and SS int
  8. Hi team, Did a bit of a search to find a comprehensive list of the limits to the different parts on the B series XR6T's, nothing came up. There is a sticky on the FG's but they are a different beast. I guess all the info is here on this site individually, but a nice list would be handy. If we could group source the info and sticky it, might help newbies like myself. Been a Fordmods member for a long time, but they don't seem to have as much knowledge in their userbase on the factory turbo sixes as on here. If we could list the parts, and fill in the blanks about what is reliably accepted
  9. Hey Guys, - just interested in all your experiences / comments on the following: I have a 2013 mk2 FG XR6 TURBO UTE with Luxury Pack (Black of course ) Didn't exactly have and cash to spare on it, so have done minimal mods. First thing I did was a Herrod performance airbox. Gain was minimal, most change in the noise. Next thing I did was remove the restrictive ring after the cat. Again minimal gain, no difference in noise. Decided to go for a flash tune, even through I was sure I would never do it until I ran out of warranty - I ended up getting a generic tune from Intune Motorsports in Sydne
  10. Hey guys, the name is Sam I just stumbled across this forum and thought, what a great place to get advice, I'm don't know too much about cars due to being new to the car scene. I just turned 18 two days ago, I own a 2003 BA xr6, everything is stock currently. I have been driving this xr6 since I first started on my L plates, I know the car fairly well. However I'd like more power. I am starting to look at exhausts and extractors.. Is there any other things I could do to look at some decent power increases? Please include brands that you would recommend. Please no comments like "if you want po
  11. Hey fellas bought a fg f6 2011 model beautiful car wanna get some mods going trying to hit around 350kw's from what ive seen around here mods vary with every one taking different routes so kinda hard to get a idea of what to do first budget is only about 3-4k. I was thinking full x force exhaust they recommended 3.5 inch instead of 4 inch Injectors 1000cc Cai tune the standard cooler will be alright for this power level ??
  12. blew a piston in my 6th cylinder, buying a new bottom end motor, and getting the top end rebuilt. wanting more power out of the car, so whilst its all apart just need few ideas of performance mods I can do. e.g cams, pistons, etc
  13. Hi, I am looking to buy a S/S exhaust system for my turbo sedan auto, I have looked at the exhaust from Best Mufflers which are selling the XForce system, I have searched on the site and read information, I'm not interested in straight through pipes. The trouble is neither company will tell me which brand of mufflers and cat they are using and it's making me very suspecious on the price. They look good but I don't know if they are any good. Are there people out there with these exhaust systems? If you could help me it would be great. Thanks Michael 2.bmp
  14. Hi Ive just got a stock 2010 fg xr6 turbo now I wanna mod it. Its only done 47xxx Kms what should I do and what brands should I get please help thanks. .Flash tune .injectors .fuel pump .exhuast .intercooler .vavle springs
  15. Any idea for the cheapest way to make 300rw killerwasps on a 2010 FG xr6 turbo? First mod would be ebay wog cooler for $300 :D, the rest.......
  16. Seen this question posted on the internet and made me think what I myself would actually do What would you modify on your car if you could only do 1 thing? Would it be wheels? Suspension? An exhaust or something else? But remember, only one! I reckon I would go with suspension for a better overall drive. Can make a crap drive a good one if it's comfortable, and a crap suspension setup can make a good drive quite simply, sh*t IMO. Post up what you would do but of course lol..limit to one mod haha
  17. Hey all, Had a good read over this forum, found some very good info! Especially liked the 'Mods to Power Comparison' and 'Modding your FG XR6T' threads. But when it comes to fuel consumption/modification advice, I've read too many conflicting arguments on the web, so I've come here for your advise! Looking to purchase a FG 2010 XR6T, would love it to sit between 250-300rwkw, but I don't want to be paying through the nose for fuel! If anyone could comment on how each modification (from knowledge or experience) affects fuel consumption, that would be greatly appreciated, especially in concerns t
  18. Hi everyone, Sorry if I'm doubling up here, delete this post if necessary but just want to know peoples oppinions on tuning for my fg xr6 turbo. It's currently got a CAI and I've replaced the turbo intake muffler with 3" pipe and replaced the bosch bov for a turbosmart dual port BOV. Will it be more beneficial for me to get a proper dyno tune done or get a flash tune controller or what are good options? Its purely a road vehicle and I'm not really after shaving milliseconds off my quarter mile time but do like a bit of a punch when I drop the right foot. Also, and this is probably another topi
