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+
Atomic Performance Products - XR6T High Performance Oil Pump
Oil Pumps and Components
High performance Ford 6 cylinder DOHC engines need a high performance oil
pump - and Atomic has engineered the answer. We produce high performance
billet steel oil pump gears as well as complete race-prepped oil pumps for
the Ford DOHC engines.
Ford DOHC, 2J Toyota and various Nissan oil pumps are Gerotor design pumps
which are driven directly off the snout of the crankshaft and subsequently
are subjected to twisting moments that increase substantially with RPM.
These torsional forces cause the oil pump drive gear to be thrust clockwise
and anti clockwise, which eventually leads to the failure of the gear. The
torsional moments are of a higher frequency and greater amplitude in manual
gearbox equipped cars due to them being on and off the throttle more often
during gear changes, downshifting etc.
Ford DOHC 6 cylinder oil pumps fail for 2 reasons: The original equipment
(OE) gears are made from powdered metal and lack the structural integrity
to withstand the stresses created in high revving engines. Secondly,
Gerotor pumps produce pressure and volume almost proportional to engine
speed, so high revs equals higher volumes of oil. These larger volumes
cannot be adequately managed in a standard oil pump and hydraulic oil
pressure can split the pump body open.
Atomic Engineers addressed both of these issues when designing an oil pump
for performance Ford DOHC applications and subsequently our pumps are
designed and tested to 7500 RPM and beyond.
Our #306751 and #306751-RB oil pumps features precision cut billet steel
gears, high flow pressure bypass circuitry, fully blueprinted and
clearanced and also include a hard anodized billet end plate to provide
thrust wear resistance.

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
