    Well i have been looking at this FPV 4.0L Turbo 6 speed manual over a ls2 clubsport. Unfortunately the yellow i wanted has been removed and this is my next favourite colour.

    Only items i would change from this is upgrade the current set of 4 piston bremobs to 6, and add 19" instead of 18". I have added a copy/paste from FPV website on the engine.

    The F6 270 Turbo
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] The new F6 270 Turbo. A 4-litre turbo-charged, intercooled, 24-valve double overhead cam six. The highest torque output of any production six ever built in Australia and one of the most powerful in the world. Through partnership with Prodrive and their mastery of turbo technology across F1 and World Rally, the development of our high performance turbo-charged FPV has changed performance cars forever. We created a new engine with dramatically improved cooling and induction. The 50% larger air-to-air intercooler and dual Ram Air system significantly reduces intake pressure into the turbo's compressor - allowing it to work more efficiently...and effectively.

    The result. A fully engineered performance-driven power generator. Armed with double overhead camshafts and 4-valve aluminum cylinder heads, the F6 270 Turbo produces its maximum power of 270kW at 5250 rpm. However, the real story is torque. All 550Nm on tap from just 2000 rpm and remaining constant all the way through to 4250 rpm.

    At time of launch, the highest torque output of any production engine ever built in Australia. Even more staggering is the engine's ability to produce 80% of its maximum torque at 1500 rpm and over 98% at 1750 rpm. Total Performance meets the turbo.

    yeh its currently hard to find photos as the series is rather new.

    They are roughly 50K US and push some amasing power figures.

    they have a nice Garrett GT 35/40 on a 4.0l so with minimal mods make big figures.

    hey for what this typhoon is going to cost, i could get a clubsport with a turbo on it... shit they are expensive, the ls2 has come with pretty hectic price drops due fuel and overall FBT.

    The phoon hasnt moved in price.

    The VZ GTO 6.0L comes at 64,500K through Leaseplan deal (BHP).

    I have a budget of basically 70K.
