Stock XR6T vs VE HSV R8 307
Back when my car was a 100% completely stock BF MK2 XR6T racing a brand new
VE R8. I got a 13.8 and my PB for that night got down to 13.74
Stock XR6T vs VE HSV R8 307 Run 2
Back when my car was a 100% completely stock BF MK2 XR6T racing a VE R8.
Camera dies as we cross the line but the T took the win. We both had pretty
poor reactions times. This was my first run down the 1/4 and scored a 13.74
FG F6 310 test drive...
I was a little disappointed. It was nothing like what I thought it would
There's no turbo lag, which to me is why
I love my BF F6, it kicks you hard when Boost hits. This thing didn't :(
HELL OF A CAR FOR $65,000! Now go and book a test drive!

Ford FPV F6 runs 11.0 after driving 1600km
Then he drove home. Yep, Paul from Elite Automotive in Brisbane decided to
attend the recent Ford Forum Drag Nationals at Heathcote Park with his Ford
FPV F6 (dohc 4-litre six with factory turbo - 415hp factory).
Brisbane is in Queensland and Heathcote is in Victoria and there's alot of
Australia in-between. According to whereis.com, the trip from Brisbane to
Heathcote is 1618.4km (1000miles) one way!
As you can see Paul had no problem reeling off a bunch of 11-sec ETs
(including at least three 11.0s) before drving back to Queensland. Not bad
for a car with a stock bottom end. All Paul has done is fit bigger
injectors/Intercooler/Exhaust and some better valve springs plus
given it a tune. The trip covered over 3500km all up. Now that's a real
FG XR6 Turbo 0-200
FG XR6 turbo 0-200. Factory standard.
Rolling on factory 19" rims, Toyo T1R. Brand new tyres, so grip is
fantastic. Usually it would wheelspin to 60, stuffing up the gear change,
but this time it was nice and smooth.
0-100: 4.9 seconds
0-200: 16.1 seconds
80-120: 2.5 seconds
Eased off a little after 200, was contemplating going to the 240 limiter
but the private racetrack had a corner coming up so I canned that idea.
Can't wait to start modding it.
