The thing is to you get a full factory warranty with the Typhoon as well. Where as if you modded the XR6T you might nott.


That is why god has blessed us with herrod motorsport products :D

yeah its an hsv. An extra 9 kw over the Holden model so its at 180kw. I remember reading that it was available in the vy shape but was put to the special order catalogue. No one bought it so they discontinued it because it was not selling. Its supercharged and it makes 2 kw less than a stock BA. :roll:

And also probably like others have and including my self they were not hard to "Chop" in a Traffic light drag. They were just HSV show ponies.

Exactly right, not very fast and sounded awful.

Wow, pitty that the bloke from FPV did point this out to HSV when they claimed they are V8's only! What about the V6 Monaro that Holden brought out, how hit was that!

Yeah also folks have you seen the latest article in "MOTOR" that is about the F6 and has it on the front cover as well. I thought the times they got out of it were a bit slow 14.02 for a 1/4. But I guess the car isn't fully run in yet., so probably will expect to see them drop a bit :roll:
