BTA Motorsports 1000hp 'Monster' Ford F6 turbo
Just how far can you push the tried and proven Ford straight six? This is
what we try to find out with our project "Monster" F6.
The goal? A 1000hp engine in a street package. The result? 1300hp+ from the
engine with 992.8hp at the rear wheels.

Atomic Performance Products - XR6T High Performance Conrods
Atomic billet steel conrods were designed from scratch with one principle
in mind; use aerospace quality materials and sophisticated manufacturing
processes to produce an extremely strong, light and durable connecting rod
for the popular inline 6 cylinder Ford SOHC/DOHC engines, at an affordable
The Design and Evaluation Process
The Atomic engineering team set out to address these parameters by
designing what many performance engine builders are now calling the finest
conrod on the market for the Ford DOHC 6 cylinder engine.
Extensive CAD/CAM computer modelling was employed and produced a H-Beam
design, which has an extremely high stiffness-to-mass ratio. The next step
was to pick the correct materials, heat treatment and surface treatment
processes to ensure durability under rigorous performance applications.
Next came FEA modelling (Finite element analysis) to simulate stresses on
the conrods. This also entailed weighing every piston, gudgeon pin and ring
set on the market and loading this information, plus stroke, rotating and
reciprocating conrod values into our computer modelling software to
calculate the stresses.
The greatest load exerted on a conrod in an engine producing 600 comes not
from the force of normal combustion but from the tensile force exerted by
the piston at top dead centre (TDC). At 5250 RPM the piston exerts a
tensile load on the conrod of 1908 gs (-1693 kgs) at split overlap TDC
reversal. If you increase maximum engine speed by only 1000 RPM to 6250
RPM, the TDC tensile load rises by 50.4% to 2870 gs. At 7500 RPM the
tensile loading increases to 4132 gs, clearly demonstrating the Atomics
design strength of 8000 gs means it has plenty in reserve.
Excessive loads at TDC are brought about by a high reciprocating mass
and/or by increasing engine RPM, so it is essential to design reciprocating
engine components with the lowest mass possible to minimize premature lower
bearing shell bearing failure. This is particularly relevant to our
customers who are turning their engines to 7500RPM+.

XR6 Turbo Rebuild
After doing a compression test on the beast I noticed that it lost about
100psi in number 6 So I pulled the motor out and discovered that the oil
ring had pushed thru... So it was time for a rebuild. Thanks my local
mechanic we are going to do a rebuild total cost of the rebuild is about
10k.. I will be roaming the streets again min to late January.. Can't wait
to see what horse power I can get hoping for 600rwhp+
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?
Overhead Cam at 14K RPM
This video shows an operational cutaway of a BMW S1000RR — a 193HP
superbike — bumping against its 14,200RPM redline. A cam and valvetrain
at 118 cycles per second is an amazing sight (and sound)
Changing A Frount Hub On A BA XR6 Turbo Falcon
bobdog6t9 come out to fix the hubs on his car and this is just a few
pointers on changing a frount hub on a BA XR6 turbo FALCON if you are gonna do it make sure you
have a PULLY and HAMMER they very useful and a 35 mm socket and new lock
nuts as it it advised to NOT use the old ones and yes we are just backyard
mechanics so if we done something wrong it a bit of bad luck the car is
still going strong and there hasnt been any dramas yet lol
Ford powered Skyline!
Shot at a Mazfix Dyno
day in QLD on the trusty ol 7D for the lads at Zoom. And yes, you read the
title correctly. This car is powered by an Australian Ford 4.0L XR6 turbo Falcon engine!
