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.
Supercharged FPV GS Test Drive
I want one. We take a drive in the new supercharged FPV GS and I tip that
this is going to be the new 'tuner' car of the next decade. It's got alot
of bang for it's relative low $56,000 price tag. In stock form they have
315kw at the flywheel, but it seems that FPV might be telling a little
white lie about that, because it certainly feels like it's got alot more.
Is it any good? Simple answer; yes, I'd have one, just make mine an auto.,
but i'd take a manual if you twisted my arm. :)
Quick FPV Ford F6 turbo street car
Vel's FPV F6 runs a personal best pass at Heathcote. With 420hp on tap in
stock form a few basic upgrades has seen this Ford FG run fast with ease. A
switch to ethanol E85 fuel, Plazmaman Intercooler upgrade, slightly larger
than factory Garrett T04Z turbo and a
C-series transmission are responsible for the newfound speed. Like many
powerful Barra 4.0L turbo six engines,
the internals remain factory stock.

2014 FPV GT F 351 The Most Powerful GT Sedan Ever Produced by Ford Australia
Ford officially launched its celebration FPV models in Australia, the
limited-edition FPV GT F sedan and Pursuit Ute.
The most powerful GT sedan ever produced by Ford Australia, the FPV GT F is
powered by a 351 kilowatt supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine. The GT F's
output was specifically chosen as a reference to the iconic 351 cubic-inch
5.8 litre V8s that powered the original Falcon GTs.
The beating heart of the GT F has undergone specialised development by the
Ford Product Development team and partner Prodrive Premcar to meet customer
expectations of both performance and driveability.
"Our goal was to create the best vehicle we could; a vehicle that pays
respect to Ford GTs of old yet celebrates all that is good about Ford's
performance credentials," FPV Chief Program Engineer, Peter de Leur, said.
Apart from developing a character-filled 351 kW of power, the V8 engine in
the GT F sedan has a transient overBoost function in the engine management system
that will enable drivers to access 15 per cent more power, if the
prevailing conditions are favourable.
The GT F 351's power curve has been calculated to deliver a very noticeable
feel to the car's performance. This is delivered in every gear above 4000
rpm, other than first gear.
"When we started this program we had an opportunity to look at a
performance increase for the engine so we developed a strategy around the
calibration that allowed for a performance upgrade without impacting the
all-round driveability of the car. In doing so, we were also able to make
this car special for our FPV GT F customers. We were also able to add
things like rear camber bolt adjustment on the rear suspension so it can be
adjusted for track days, if a customer wishes," de Leur said.
Developed to celebrate Ford's performance brand, the new FPV GT F also pays
homage to the legendary Falcon GTs of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Each will carry an individual build number, with many specific numbers
reserved by collectors and Falcon GT enthusiasts.
Customers have rushed dealers Australia-wide to secure the celebration run
of FPV GT F sedans and Pursuit utes. Very few GT F sedans remain available
and there is strong interest in the Pursuit utes.
Just 500 of the FPV GT F sedans will be built for the Australian market,
with an additional 50 built for New Zealand. Ford will build just 120
In taking the covers off, Ford revealed for the first time the GT F's
unique bonnet 'black out', which harks back to the original Falcon GTs.
The 'black out' panel extends over the roof and rear deck lid, giving the
last FPV a unique look.
Exposed too was the model's distinctive 'stealth' exterior striping
package, together with gloss black accents on the 'raccoon eyes', grilles,
appliques, door handles, mirrors and rear diffuser, ensuring that the GT F
is unlike anything that has come before it.
'GT orange' detailing is another feature of this newest and celebratory
FPV, which used on the model's unique '351' badging, instrument dial faces,
seat stitching and embroidery, build number and manual transmission
plaquette and the ICC start-up screen.
Ford's designers have given the interior finishes an even more contemporary
look with darker tones and more lustrous finishes, including to the
instrument panel spears, which have a look new to previous FPV models.
Available in five colour variants from the Ford palette, FPV GT F buyers
have been given the choice of three colour tonings that convey either a
bold and modern look, tone-on-tone elegance or a sense of heritage that
recreates the original look of the first Falcon GT.
Ford also announced that every FPV GT F owner will be able to purchase a
tailored car cover in dark grey and with model logo and stripe print.
