Atomic Performance Products - XR6T on-car Valve Spring Tool
On-car Valve Spring Removal Tool to suit Ford 6 Cylinder DOHC
Our Patented (Patent # 2006100221) tool is a simple device to facilitate
quick and easy removal of valvetrain components in Ford 4.0L VCT twin cam
Barra engines. The unique features of the tool are as follows:
• The cylinder head does not need to be removed to gain access to the
• Once the tool is fitted, all 4 valve springs per cylinder can be
• No special skills are required to use the tool
• The possibility of collets falling into the engine is greatly reduced
The tool saves many hours of labour when changing one or many valve
springs, valve stem seals or retainers - a mechanic can change all 24
springs in about 3 hours. Changing valve springs is very common due to the
varying tensions of standard springs and their rapid deterioration in
service, which in turn caused erratic idling and drivability issues. They
are also regularly changed in Ford turbo
vehicles as higher Boost can bring
about premature valve float.
To use the tool, simply remove the camshafts, fit the tool to number #1
cylinder and the 4 springs can be changed in about 10 minutes. Refit the
tool to the next cylinder in sequence and continue until all are changed,
refit the cams and the job is done!

Wicked Worked XR6 Turbo!
We spotted this beast plodding around the city, was VERY much a sleeper,
the bloke even pretended to be slow till the first run on this video,
may want to skip ahead to 0:40 as the sound of the wind is horrible!
Australia's Quickest BA XR6 Turbo
Phil Chain's XR6 turbo currently holds
the record with an 8.4 at 166mph, but the boys had some problems getting it
down the track at Jamboree and only (??) managed a couple of 9.1sec runs at
over 160mph. It's a beast of a thing with a massive GT47R turbo. How soon until we see a 7sec pass from an
XR6 turbo is Australia?
