My mate at work has an XR6 turbo, and i always thought to myself, wouldnt it be awesome to have an excellent well built straight 6 like this swapped into the Zed.

 

and here we have it!

Looking good Kyle. That will be one awesome machine when it's done. As you know I have the same engine in my Turbo Territory which flies in a 2 ton chassis. I can only imagine what it will be like in a Zed. Persist with the pain and expense and you will have one unique machine. Cheers.

mate that engine just look at home in the Z as it did in the falcon. looks wicked.

 

like Craig said these engines in 1.8t falcon and 2t territory move pretty good.

 

it will be insane in a light Z. may need to fit some BIG and very sticky rubber at the back.  ;D

 

keep us posted.

Hey pplz

 

Just a minor update:

Engine got overhauled with new bearings, valve springs, heavy duty oil pump from nizpro, BF conrods and seals and gaskets..

 

Saying the engine good for 380kw at the wheels :o

I say detune to 250rwkw or near that.  It is quick enough with that, but thats just me, maybe have an large boost option for when that guy in the commie is pulling away.

Hey pplz ;D

 

minor update

Engine rebuilt and back in the Zed now. fitting the exhaust manifold and turbo as well as the intake manifold which the top half will be a nizpro intake plenum. Turbo exhaust side will get modified as well. Then after that will see how much space there is for the piping and also i think a custom radiator and intercooler.

Slowly getting there :D
