so true tickford_6 revs are not the answer
I've had highly strung 7000rpm engines in car and its not all that. if I remember correctly 7.5krpm on track (AT WAKEFIELD of all places) ....(must have been quite on it that day ;)

these are torquey motors and the best advise I can give is to embrace your rev range just make it very hard but more so very efficently within your range the only thing limiting you is your cam and ECU.

I am trying to talk someone into doing a 2nd t/body, then we think we will come close to the mark, if not exceed it.
But it is all speculation at the moment.

How about a bog standard BMW M3 - 3.2 straight six with 252kw out of the box.. awe inspiring stuff. TVR also has a 4.0L straight six that makes around 300kw as well. There's plenty of impressively powerful NA engines out there.


yess but it will never have the tourq of a 4L I6, and this is wat every 1 forgets tourqe is wat moves u forward not hp

yes but power and torque as a bi product will come so long as weight doesnt increase huge apounts....big hp cars always have big torque figures

Mine did that the other night, I think, except it's not a turbo at all so no idea how. Car took off in third, wouldn't change no matter what I did (no kickdown, no manual shifting with the tiptronic) and the gear selector light on the dashboard was flashing. Few minutes later, seemed to be all good. Is that what your dad's car had? How did they fix it in the end?


Ive had this problem in my BA XR8 but it came good after an hours rest. Being stuck in third is the transmission going into limp home mode.

The 3.2lt 232kw/311bhp M3 in 96 had a heaft 320nm of torque out of the box

don't worry it has got it where it counts

Yep they move alright. I had a 252kw/365nm SMG M3 hand my fat taxi's a*** to me on a plate one day. What an awesome N/A 6 they are.

Yeah that's what I thought, it goes into limp home mode before any damage can be done doesn't it? Have you taken it into Ford? I'll try to take mine in to get it checked out just in case.
