    BA wagon, turbo sleeper

    Copy paste straight from my scumtree ad:

    2003 BA wagon, plain jane white, was my daily work car until recently. Is in expected condition for a 300,000 km falcon. Everything is either faded, scuffed, dented, rattles or squeaks, but it all does its job. Heater gets hot, aircon gets cold. Comes with a full 12 months reg.


    Has FG manifold and turbo

    Kinigawa wastegate actuator

    braided oil lines

    hi flow cat

    has a stock FG XR6T rear muffler which are known to flow very well but still keep it quiet to avoid unnecesary attention

    custom front mount intercooler, with all piping hidden as much as possible (inside factory NA intake and air box)

    60lb injectors

    walbro 255 in tank, aeroflow 044 external

    super conservative tune, moderate boost which peaks at about 10psi and tapers off to 8ish. makes approx 250rwkw

    huge trans cooler

    twin 12" subs in back


    Was going to put it on E85 and shoot for more power (hence the second fuel pump was added in) but have acquired a new car and running out of room.





    Scumtree price is $6k, mandatory PF discount will be applied at checkout.

    Cheers, Ben.

    Is this the best sleeper Iíve ever seen, or are all the go fast parts installed in the back?
    Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

      All go fast bits are up front. Got a half hacked up heat shield over most of the turbo, of which the compressor cover is also painted black. Intake pipe is a 90* bend straight down with a pod filter under the car. Front mount and all piping painted black too.

              Bravo.

              How much more boost can the trans/diff take before it all spills onto the bitumen?

                Diff is Borg Warner 78 (VL turbo, VN-VR, e series falcon etc). Plenty tough.

                BTR 4 speed was inadequate in standard cars, so it can safely take about 10psi less than it has in it now. In all seriousness though, it's had the shift's firmed up in the tune and bangs gears firmly. No signs of slipping but I don't abuse it. Big transcooler helps too.

                    If I was single I would buy this car.

                    But then I would not be single for long after being the owner obviously...

                      you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.

                              Only thing that puts me off at the advertised price is getting it engineered and RWC in Vic will drive the cost up pretty quick.

                              Engineering in Vic is a pain in the arse and not a cheap exercise, very hard to get friendly rwc now Vicroads require photo's too.

                              I would be surprised if it hasn't sold by now but it's only worth what someone will pay
