Flat shifting xr6 turbo
flat shifting in an xr6 turbo using the
launch control and spark cut revlimiter.
For those that dont know what going on here, i imported a 2 stage spark cut
rev limiter from the USA and fitted to the "coil on plug" ignition in the
xr6t. The limit can be set at whatever rpm you like, i use the forst stage
for launch control and the second stage to limit rpm between shifts. The
advantage in using this system, is that the throttle body stays open, and
the injectors keep flowing fuel whilst the limiter is dropping the spark.
The result, is that the unburnt fuel keeps the turbo spooled, and the open throttle body prevents
the accumulated Boost from dumping
out the BOV. Both of the above are prevented by the factory limiter as it
closes throttle and turns off injectors when the limit is hit.

One of the most curious aspects of car ownership is the inevitable ups and
downs that arise during the modification journey. From simple mods to full
scale builds the level of blood, sweat and tears is undeniable, yet the
results generally make it all worthwhile. This is certainly the case for
Justin, whose fateful victim was his beloved BF2 XR8 ute 'Pokey', finished
in the rare Breeze green. After losing his car to a freak fire accident, he
was faced with the decision of continuing with another B series or starting
a fresh project with the then newly released FG model.
