Hey guys im thinking of putting a Turbo in my AU but was thinking it would be much cheaper and easier if i just buy an engine with a turbo so my question is can i fit a BA/BF Engine in my FORD AU Car? thanks

f**k you post some useless s**t up.

It'll be similar to what has to be done in the E series cars, but you could possibly drop the entire dash and ecu into the AU.
Theres info on here of it going into an EL mont, and a couple of EA-Ds

You can get the early model xr6 turbos under 20 grand now, like the 2003, 2004 even 2005 models are cheap now,

Rather buy one of them then spend 12 or more on a turbo,

If you want to turbo your current SOHC 4.0, you're looking at about $3k for a basic snort kit, plus whatever else is needed, so double that to $6k and you should have everything covered (exh, tune, clutch/stronger auto, diff, fuel pump etc etc)

If you can do everything yourself you'll be able to drop the DOHC in for about the same money.

Quaduple it if you want a gearbox that will take decent power. Times it by 6 if you want your bottom end to handle the same 300rwkw that a stock BA can.

20k? You can get them for around 10k.



BA XR6T for 10k? Where?
