Which Xr6T To Buy? (Merged Topic)

Recommended Posts

Diff bushes need rear cradle drop...in WA its around $700-$1000 including aftermarket bushes. Wouldn't bother with oem; especially if upping power later.

Mine was aftermarket warranty through Ford dealership...think he priced job at $950ish.

Most go with superpro (comfort and a race spec one I think). Comfort is quieter but race handles more power. I have nolathane and so far so good for 50,000kms; with stock power and auto though.

Also assume you know that manuals are slower than auto; but they are more "fun". Zf auto is good...especially on lazy days.

If anybody is after a clean, fresh very low KM FG XR6T that's been maintained like a collectors car and been modded properly, get in touch with me.

First upgrade should be Tyres, this motor puts out 500+NM of Torque and you need nothing short of high end tyres to handle the power properly if you want acceleration and not just tyre spin this will make the car safer to drive too.

2nd uprade is reliability - Hard intercooler pipes and Flex plate upgrade/mod if Automatic. Oil Pump gears are also recommended.

Now go for power with you basic intercooler upgrade, injectors and a reputable tuner, the torque is just intoxicating at times it pulls like a big block and with traction control off can send you sideways like a flick of a light switch, I love it.

It was always my vision that Ford would release a piece of crap like the FG-X way before it happened and then it happened, FG-X will be worth nothing in the future like the UC Torana and the earlier models will be the nice ones.

cant go wrong with a bf mk2 f6....I was in two minds go fg or bf the look of the bf in my opinion is alot tuffer in the f6 range anyway.

I have had mine for 8 month's now and love it real head turner and has plenty of punch. You will pay as much for a bf f6 as you would for a fg xr6t second hand though.Hard decision mate both good cars....are you lookin at doin mods to it yourself or buyin already with mods ???

BFII F6

FTW

Loved my Ego one. Always had a soft spot for Rapid. DejaVu looks great as well (shout out Ralph). I saw one for sale about 2 months ago over east in Silk. I nearly died, I never knew they made them in Silk. Was ready to book the next flight over for it.

Hi all,

 

New to the forum and certainly no automotive guru.  

 

Looking at buying either a ba/bf xr6t and wanting to not spend anymore than 12k.  Preference is lower kms but not really sure on reasonable prices and what to look for.

 

Currently looking at these two cars.  

 

This one is modded with low kms (note, he said he would get everything fixed up and probably sell around 10.5-11k)

http://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Ford-Falcon-2004/SSE-AD-4188252/?Cr=2

 

Second one is stock apart from heavy duty clutch.  Higher kms and seems tad over priced? (He seems to not want to go much lower than 12k)

http://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Ford-Falcon-2005/SSE-AD-2405672/?Cr=3

 

Any advice would be much appreciated.

 

Cheers

Hi guys,

 

Looking for some quick advice. I'm wanting to upgrade from bf2 xr6t to an fgx xr6t. Want to know peoples thoughts on the fgx turbo, any issues? Is there any differences between the 2014, 2015 and 2016 models? I've noticed that some have brembo brakes fitted and others dont,  is that a factory upgrade based on year of manufacture or a purchased upgrade from new? Love to hear peoples thoughts.

 

Also if you had the option to purchase an fg f6e with 110k kms on it or an fgx xr6t with 60k kms on it for around the same price, what would you choose?

 

Cheers all

Kiwod

I also had an external transmission cooler installed for my zf on my bf2. Is this required on the fgx or did ford change the setup for the trans cooler lines to not run through the radiator

WTB BF/BF MK2 XR6 turbo or BF F6

 

Hi All,

 

Been a member of this forum for a while and just recently have gathered some funds to buy an xr6 turbo or BF typhoon.

 

Is it just me or are unmodified cars hard to find?

 

I am looking for a mostly unmodified BF or BF MK2 xr6 turbo or F6 typhoon with as many options as possible. Sunroof and Leather highly regarded and extra paid.

 

Not even sure if I am able to post this in here or if it needs to be in a different section but thought I would try anyway.

 

my number is 04xx xxx xxx if you know of one or have one for sale.

 

I am in melbourne but am willing to travel.

 

Thanks all
