CPV tuned FG F6

Recommended Posts

So a couple months ago the turbo on my f6 failed so it needed to be replaced. I had been talking to Dave from CPV Tuning for a couple months about upgrading the turbo and when the stock turbo failed it kind of forced my hand and the turbo was upgraded. Hadn't planned on doing it this early but couldn't see the point in replacing the stock turbo and then getting a  new one again in 6 months time.

 

So a custom turbo from monsta torque was ordered and installed to go along with existing mods like manta exhaust, twin 460 surge tank, intanke 460, PW stage 3 cooler, valve springs, 1000cc injectors and stall converter. The daily tune ended up doing 459.6kw and the drag tune ended up going 493.4kw, both were on e85

Most impressive thing about the car is that it still retains the standard airbox and intake so there is no doubt in my mind that if a turbo side intake was installed than the car would make over 500rwkw but that's not what I was chasing with this car. I wanted to keep a relatively standard looking engine bay seeing as though it is still my daily so to the untrained eye it would still look standard and I wouldnt get much attention. I also wanted to see if it was possible to run a 9 on the standard intake so will hopefully get a chance to go down the strip soon and see what time it does.

They seem to keep it fairly quiet though. I've had turbo Falcons for about 3 years now, with the last one being a bf and it wasn't till I got the f6 and started talking to Dave that I even heard about this turbo. So they have done well on keeping it a bit of a secret.

But I have seen on Facebook a company called RaceEquipped doing a very similar turbo now. They call it a high flow gt35 which has a 66mm

Mamba and Kinugawa have been doing it for a while as well. Jim gianna, race equipped and another Aussie company do them here locally 

 

is your one in the .7 cover?

Yeah alright, first time I've ever heard of a company doing it was monsta torque. Do they all perform roughly the same?

I had always been pushed towards a gtx or a precision.

Yeah mine has the .7 cover.

With a good set of slicks, and a upgraded converter you'll manage a 9sec pass. I did it in my FG XR6, with the same turbo from Rob. It's kept so quiet because everyone talks about the GTX3582r and don't want to hear at the the 66mm with .7'cover.

Yeah I forgot to mention I've got an upgraded converter aswell as a built gearbox. I've got a new some brand new et streets waiting aswell so now I just need to find some time to get down the strip and see what I can do.

 

It's a great turbo, I can't believe how much top end it has its just unreal.

Yup becoming a very common turbo now as the 35r hotside flows quiet well and bolts up

Great choice mate should get the 9 sec pass

So went to strip a couple weeks ago and it didn't go to badly. 10.5 at 132mph, had a couple small issues so that gives us something to work on for next time. In my opinion it's got a little more left in it but only time will tell.

Cheers mate, yeah definitely can't complain the time. Can't wait for next time to see if we can improve on the time. Had issues getting it off the line well so get that sorted and it should go a little quicker.

Little bit of an update on the car. I have since removed the standard intake and airbox and replaced it with a process west 4" racebox intake. Made a huge difference in torque as it could finally breathe a little better without the restriction in the intake. However a couple weeks after removing the standard intake it snapped a cyro treated input shaft on the zf, so box was pulled out and billet shaft and some extra clutches throw into it. Car is now making 501kw on daily tune and yet to put a big tune into it.

:spoton:

 

Should turn a tyre on wet grass now ;)

 

Unlucky on the ZF issue, though. I'm sure you'll be happy to have it fixed and upgraded.

 

Also, got a dyno graph for that?

My bad, posted up the old graph. This is the new one. From memory there is 0% duty cycle on the boost control at top end so you would expect it too hold well. ff140cca001045ff6ba0f07af4b3a860.jpg
