Hello Spoolers,

So, I have been looking more into Australia's cars lately due to the lack of media and attention they get and we have the Ford XR6 Turbo.

Ford XR6 Turbo features a 4.0L Inline 6 Turbocharged engine. The car that holds the record for the XR6 1/4 mile was actually de-stroked to a 3.7L Inline 6!

Current Record belongs to the following:

After watching this.. It is the only Ford I wish I had and, would love to build.

#PowerToTheInline6

What do you guys think?

I think the xr6 is actually just a trim level and is called the ford falcon. This looks like the utility version. The xr8 is a v8 I think.

Yup theres XR6 N/A 4.0, XR6T (same 4.0 with changes and sorta a gt35/40 something), and XR8 (V8)

Current XR8 I believe is supercharged from factory.
Yes, the XR8 is supercharged.

And, also just to verify the XR6 is known as the Falcon but, that's why I decided to go with XR6 so that people wouldn't assume the higher trim was the success here. :p

6k stock+valve springs

6500-7k built

Only past 7k on open wallet builds afaik

Stump pullers haha
Haha, I just love how "torquey" inline 6's are. I have a lot of confidence in this platform due to the results we have seen so far, and from the inline 6 in general. (2Jz, n54, n55, s55, s54, XR6, etc)

In my opinion without having a large displacement v8, a inline 6 appears to be the way to go for power down low.
