Ciaran = wrong this time No real proof mate, but 06/06 was the date. Some get different brakes from factory so not even bunny or bionic could say that every engine after this number has better rods. B

Wow we need some serious proof about the BF engine. So many different stories.

The BF's are the same from what I've been told, it's the change from BA - BF where things had changed.

From 06/06 they shared bottom ends. Most bolts on are the same too except cooler and rocker cover.

mechanical wise, bf1 and bf2 are the same as far as I'm aware. Only differences I know of are if you get the BF2 update, which comes with inserts in the trim on the sides and rear.

I thought 06/06 onwards were f6 motors running lower boost? Valve springs and conrods being the major differences.

All mk2 BFs have the typhoon bottom end. You have a mk 2 so you are safe.

Derp totally forgot about that. But then again not all BF's have the same internals - as mentioned 06/06 onwards have the same as the typhoon, so as long as you get a june 06 and on car - or July/August just to be safe, you'll be fine.

What did the BF MK2 bring to the table? Considering they already had the better engine in some of their BF's. Just made it the standard?

some BF2 didn't have the 328mm rear vented rotor too, they went back to the 303mm solid, like the FG.

Yeah my rear rotor on my BF2 is a solid - weird didn't know that one but I suppose that's why I always get asked if it's a vented or solid rear when ordering pads

hi , im looking at getting a xr6 turbo and my friend has the ba model and they said there were a few problems with it and they fixed it with the ba mark 2, I just want to know is there much of a difference in reliablilty between the ba and bf, because the ba is alot cheaper, and also perfomance wise the bf has 245 kilowatt, is it much quicker then the ba, is it worth spending more for the bf? also is the 6 speed quicker and more fuel efficient then the 5 speed?

Buy the BF if you can afford it. The 6spd is much stronger and yes it will be better on fuel.

Standard power wise they're not too much different but if you want to push more power down the track then the BF is a better base.

do not buy the 5 speed if you plan on chasing any power

The 5 speed Tremec Manual Box is NOT as strong as the 6 speed Tremec Manual Box.

5speed will explode under stock power, 6speed is good for 700+hp. the bf has stronger engine internals and can handle a fair bit more power.

cheers, andy
