looks stupid, has a turbo that stands out like dogs balls yet the n/a falcon intake





i dont recall ever saying i was trying to hide the fact that it was a turbo,, probably would have started by removing the turbo badge on the bootlid if i was?

I went with the standard na pipework as a way of having a conventional style intercooler rather than 65m of pipework like a standard xr6t.

and for the 90% of people out there that couldnt describe the air path through a turbo anyway I think it suits the purpose just fine.

Did you make that yourself?


yeah he did, he's now running a workshop in kadina, SA, but i haven't seen him on the forums much, just on facebook occasionally posting how much he's loving his CBR haha.

How come you stayed with the log manifold?

Log manifold is better in a boosted situation. I'm sticking with it when my turbo setup is done!

That's not entirely true. In high power situations, it can't even compare. You can push the tunes in proper tubular designs more.

got bored waiting to finish the F6/AU bottom end as it will take a few more months over xmas/new years, so i bolted a good GT3582 copy onto my existing AU engine and did any pre existing modifications that were required to get either the GT35 or GT42 setup running, so it was win win, but alot of hard work :(

please excuse all the welding, most was less than ideal metal and gaps with a bunnings ozito gassless mig lol, plus i dont care about looks (ie. grinding welds down), would rather it just stays together and doesn't leak.

also the mess of random s**t on the right hand side of the bay is my gas s**t, the car is running a Gas Research system with twin lock offs at the tank, twin 8mm lines, twin lock offs in the bay with 2x B2 converters fitted with GRA pressure springs.

i had to remove the sump to swap it for one i had a return fitting threaded in - this was done with the engine partially removed (all ancillaries still connected). i also removed the lower brackets at the back for the lower bellhousing bolts as i'm not using them, i did it to make it 11ty million times easier to fit the sump back in with the engine in the air.

300x700x115mm cooler with 3 1/4" inlet/outlet modded to 3" - tight fit with quite a bit of modding lol, but it fits perfect where i want it :)

added external gate pipe to an internal gate manifold

completed product still due for a clean and a few things to move around.
first shot is to give you an idea of how the cooler sits in regards to the bonnet etc, but its not seated on the bottom latch, hence why its crooked.

Not true. Rodney Sammut is running 8's on a ported log manifold.

The exception does not make the rule.

Misk, where did you buy that intercooler from. Will the standard headlights still squeeze in or do you need to use xr6 headlights???

i bought the intercooler from tuff car parts.
and the headlights do fit, but i did have to cut quite alot of the plastic backing out to make them fit, but really only at the grille end.

heres what you can see from the outside:

Old set up in the LTD now in the XE. More boost, less weight, bigger rubber = 9's hopefully.

Here's the latest progress pics. Not far now.

Just bloody fiddly things wasting my time now like I notice the bonnet wasn't aligned and go to align it and as usual the bonnet bolt turns to s**t and thread stuffs up. Great, waste 30 mins fixing that. Clamps being a little small or new silicon hose being a little too thick and mucking about with that s**t.... just annoying fiddly things.
