I read about the F6 in this mornings edition of the Herald Sun and have been slobbering about it for the rest of the day so I thought I'd share!

Did you read yesterdays story on how HSV boss John Creenan was taking a serve at FPV boss David Flint. Crennan was saying FPV does know what sort of performance company it is. Basically John Crennan was trying to say only Performance enhancing V8's is the only true way to go and not to enhance 6's. Flint they are a Ford Peformance company fullstop whether it be V8's or 6's.
I think HSV are running scared that the F6 Typhoon will whip their V8's in too the ground as obviously with an aftermarket factory XR6T you can wind them up to 370KW's.

Abso-tively.

They know that some of the people who are going to buy the F6 will spend a lot more money on their car to enhance the performance even further. It is one awesome package. Crennan is just digging for a little publicity.

Oh and the article for Crennan vs Flint is here: http://carsguide.news.com.au/news/story_page/0,8269,11283178%255E21822,00.html

Why would holden give a crap about what Ford is doing. The only reason to get up and say something about it is because they dont like it cause its better. Same way labour and liberals work.
Who wants to say that a rival companys (Ford) 6 cylinder engine has more power than most of Holdens HSV V8s. So what do you do? Get up and bash it.
Pure preschool. And then to go on and say for every 10 cars they sell we sell 3. I'll look at it as 10 of their cars equals 3 of Fords.
That Creenan guy seems like an idiot.

HSV isnt the only car company that can make cars.

They are not that greate anyways.

Just because someone has built something that doesnt 8cyls and no HSV badge then it isnt a performance car????


Wake up d**k :roll:

the funny thing was when i read this article the other day Crenna Said " ford dont know wether there into 6's or 8's" funny thing is i remember holden had a hsv superchraged 6 in there range up until the release of the ba falcon when they discovered the standard i6 delivered more power than there hsv enhanced supercharged 6

Yeah folks here is the latest Carsguide on the F6 Typhoon. I must say reading a lot of their articles it isn't half obvious they are so "HOLDEN" biased. Only giving FORD a rap for fear of looking too biased :evil: :evil:
