this thread was going for a while in fordmods 1 and answered a lot of q's for me so i thoungt i'd better start it up again.

So far the project is going well, the battery is in the boot and the thermos will be in in a week or so, the a/c will be taken out over the next week and then i'm onto the manifolds.

Maybe we can start a sticky with turbo fitments.

If someone assigns me to some sections (**cough** Matti **cough** Brad) maybe I could help. :lol:

These might help too.

Links to forced inducted Fords, articles and related sites.
Some of the links need updating, I will do this soon when I have time.

If it looks familiar that is because I had a thread started with that exact post.

I would say that is a bit late. :lol:


Best to check with QLD DOT.

In QLD 1994 I don't think it was illegal as my XF wagon had the battery in the back under the floor, I don't think they cared about anything bar the fact it was fitted with a V8 (prior rego was NSW)

I've looked on the web for the rules and regs regarding mods but to no avail. i't would be good if someone could put a sticky up relating to all mods. It would be a big post though.

From wat ive heard it has to be vented. If you didnt vent the battery i think it would still be ok and wouldnt overheat

EBXR8380 - wat did you do with yours

Awesome I'd love a a twin turbo XR8, but instead i uinvested the money in paint and stereo.

Still i'd love to go for a drive in one. There is a guy on fordforums who has a 600rwkw odd BA Twin Turbo XR8. Cost him $35k on the motor, but would be the best $85,000 car on the road.
