Hi Guys,

At the end of last year i purchased a BA XT falcon wagon.

Unfortunately the wagon is the only falcon that does not have the turbo engine available.

My main question is, is it hard to do, and has anyone done this here that can ACTUALLY tell me how it is done.

Im pretty hands on, and would not mind to know how to do this myself.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I suppose if you were keen you could get nizpro or the like to put new internals plus one of their exhaust/intake/turbo combos... or you could buy a complete xr6t motor and just swap it out (including the ecu) and I'd say if you went this route it'd be worth it to put in a new intercooler and custom piping on it instead of using the stock stuff.

You could also start by going to the "Forced Induction Workshop", and not here.

You'll find a few topics in there on it...
