The ultimate E85 XR6 turbo upgrade list

Running E85 is the dream for anyone with a turbocharged performance car.  But it does come with some draw backs.  One of the main ones is that you need to increase your fuel capabilities 35% over standard.  That being said, when you do switch to E85, you’re probably doing so to run a LOT more boost, so you’re going to need a whole heap more fuel on top of that as well.

Here is a list with a few options of every part of the upgrade neccessary to get the most our of your Ford Falcon XR6 turbo

1.The in tank fuel pump – Getting fuel from the factory fuel tank to your surge tank will require an upgraded pump due to the demand for more fuel.

2.  The surge tank – Instead of a universal tank, this specific xr6t designed tank bolts up the front of the car, and sits inline with the factory feed line.

3. The main fuel pumps – Getting fuel out of the surge tank and to the fuel rails is the next step.  If you’re running this type of setup, then you’re chasing 2 of these bad boys!

4. Holding extra fuel is the key here, and thats why a billet fuel rail is fitted :  (other colours also available)

5. Out of the rail and into the engine!  Fuel is atomised into a fine spray by the fuel injectors, and with big horsepower and E85, you’re going to need at least 1000cc

6. Excess fuel that isnt used is returned out of the rail into the fuel pressure regulator.  To allow proper adjustment, and to flow the increase volume of fuel, this is also upgraded

Generally modification of this level to the fuel system would be undertaken when a large frame turbocharger is fitted, and supporting engine modifications.  If you have a much milder setup, we have other much simpler complete solutions available.

4 rotor walk around

You’ve probably all heard a 2 rotor engine, maybe even a 3 rotor.  But if you havent heard a 4 rotor engine, then you are missing out!

A sound almost reminiscent of an Forumula 1 race car, this 4 rotor engine is something else.

Which is faster a Bridgeport or a Peripheral Port?

In this video from racedaymedia, we can see a side by side comparison between a Mazda RX3 with a bridgeport 13B engine and an RX8 with a peripheral port 13B engine at one Australia’s (if not the worlds) most famous race tracks, Bathurst.  To make matters even more interesting, these cars are owned and driven by the same person.  Major differences?  The RX3 has a major weight advantage Vs the RX8’s peripheral port engine that can rev to 11,000 rpm Vs 9,500 for the RX3.

4 rotor double engine 13B powered tractor!

Thats right, it wasnt a typo!  Check out this twin engine 4 rotor tractor.  Its powered by two 13B engines joined in series.  Coupled together with a sprocket and chain, and coupled to a jatco automatic transmission and ford 9″ diff, this tractor competes in tractor pull events where the name of the game is to haul a heavy weight over a certain distance in the fastest possible time.
