2015 Ford Falcon XR8 FG X 0-100km/h & engine sound
2015 Ford Falcon XR8 FG X 0-100km/h & engine sound. Head over to
for the full review.
2015 Ford Falcon XR8 FG X
5.0-litre supercharged V8
335kW and 570Nm
Six-speed manual, rear-wheel drive with LSD
0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds (as tested)
CV Performance 330 rwkw @ 12psi tune
This custom built vehicle by CV Performance runs only 12psi in this video
clip. 4 weeks ago the radiator sprang a very small leak and the engine was
run almost dry. After replacing the radiator the engine was tested for
problems. A true testament to the quality of the engine that no issues have
been found after the roasting it got. The tune was dropped back to only
12psi for a week or two and a close eye over it has shown no damage to
report. You can see it makes 330.8 rwkw at arould 5500rpm. This engine
makes well over 400 rwkw at only 18 psi for its every day street tune. CV
Performance are going to run the vehicle to 26 psi which should see over
500 rwkw in its final race tune.

Atomic Performance Products - XR6T High Performance Oil Pump
Oil Pumps and Components
High performance Ford 6 cylinder DOHC engines need a high performance oil
pump - and Atomic has engineered the answer. We produce high performance
billet steel oil pump gears as well as complete race-prepped oil pumps for
the Ford DOHC engines.
Ford DOHC, 2J Toyota and various Nissan oil pumps are Gerotor design pumps
which are driven directly off the snout of the crankshaft and subsequently
are subjected to twisting moments that increase substantially with RPM.
These torsional forces cause the oil pump drive gear to be thrust clockwise
and anti clockwise, which eventually leads to the failure of the gear. The
torsional moments are of a higher frequency and greater amplitude in manual
gearbox equipped cars due to them being on and off the throttle more often
during gear changes, downshifting etc.
Ford DOHC 6 cylinder oil pumps fail for 2 reasons: The original equipment
(OE) gears are made from powdered metal and lack the structural integrity
to withstand the stresses created in high revving engines. Secondly,
Gerotor pumps produce pressure and volume almost proportional to engine
speed, so high revs equals higher volumes of oil. These larger volumes
cannot be adequately managed in a standard oil pump and hydraulic oil
pressure can split the pump body open.
Atomic Engineers addressed both of these issues when designing an oil pump
for performance Ford DOHC applications and subsequently our pumps are
designed and tested to 7500 RPM and beyond.
Our #306751 and #306751-RB oil pumps features precision cut billet steel
gears, high flow pressure bypass circuitry, fully blueprinted and
clearanced and also include a hard anodized billet end plate to provide
thrust wear resistance.

Thanks for all the encouraging comments! If you'd like to keep up with the
1963 Ford Falcon Wagon build, check out all the stories here:

With guidance from my pops, a retired Ford mechanic, he shows me how, then
I give it my best shot, not always successful the first time, I hope
everyone interested in building their own engine can learn a little
1964 Ford Falcon / $100 At a Time
Shane has owned this 1964 ford falcon Sprint 2 door hardtop since 1997 when
he was 15 years old. He bought this car for $500 and made payments "$100 at
a time". The car was a shell when he got it and over the years he has
turned it into a running, and driving classic car with a Ford 302 V8 and a
5-spd manual transmission out of a Mustang 5.0.

XR6 Turbo @ Powercruise 2010
Taipan Motorsport is very proud of both our pit girls (Marta and Camilla)
for there outstanding efforts over the weekend at Powercruise Syd 2010.
Hope you enjoyed the ride Marta. From all the team at Taipan, thanks girls
For those wondering, I did crank the Boost above our Dyno shootout effort just for
Marta, wouldn't you?
Massive shout out to the Team at MR HDT, you guys are the Big Guns of the
event not the cars.
Special thanks to Troy and Michael from turbo Smart, your products are the reason Marta
had such a good time.
Special thanks to CV Performance, your the man Con.
To all the Team at Taipan, Michael, Damian and Scott, funs over, back to
