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
FPV Falcon FG F6 runs 10s - great sound!
Bill's F6 ran a best of 10.45 @ 128mph for the night at Calder Park using
275 MT street radials and E85 fuel. The 4L turbo six engine is now backed by a 3spd C-series
FPV Typhoon 4L turbo into the 9s - ZF 6-speed auto
Christian's FPV F6 has become the first 4L turbo Falcon into the 9s using the factory ZF
6-speed auto trans. An awesome achievement, the car is aided by a Nizpro
Stage 2+ performance package using the factory Garrett turbo (upgraded 0.7 compressor cover and Nizpro
modified wastegate). Making around 450kW to the wheels on 24psi Boost, the car is fuelled by E85 ethanol and
was raced with a full Exhaust, and on
275 street radials. Interesting the modified transmission still retains the
stock converter stall speed. Christian went 10.06 then 10.007 before going
9.98 at 138mph on his final pass of the day. The car was unable to complete
another pass due to no roll cage fitted.
