After previously running a nine point four six second quarter mile time, Steve’s Ford Falcon XR6 turbo has undergone further development by performance specialist Nizpro Turbocharging. New upgrades include a revised inlet plenum and larger intercooler but the key change is a switch to twin Borg Warner turbochargers enabling the setup to make over 600kW to the wheels on E85 pump fuel. Impressively the ZF 6-spd transmission remains in place aided by Nizpro stage 3 upgrade and Circle D stall converter. This was the first time out with the new combination and the car was driven to and from the track. The Nizpro teams tells us a new engine is coming for the car which will feature a billet crankshaft.
