|The Ford XR6 Turbo has a high tech multi valve engine which produces respectable power and torque with clean engine emissions. To enhance this engine was always going to take a committed effort combined with clever engineering approach to produce a very fast emission and noise legal vehicle.
From day one APS was committed to engineer a high quality 390 kW system which would continue to comply with the Australian design rule ADR 79/00 engine emission test, yet still be capable of running high 11 sec - low 12 sec quarter mile passes. In addition, to be user friendly and extremely drivable in every day bumper to bumper traffic.
APS PHASE III High Output System - 390 kW of adrenalin - with continued compliance to ADR79/00 engine emission test - Mean and Green!
|The Phase III system will prove to be one of the best developments ever undertaken by APS, and certainly one which we are proud to bare our name.
Smart Power, that's what the APS PHASE III High Output System is all about. By adopting a total system approach APS delivers phenomenal power utilizing a relatively conservative turbo pressure level - and consequently lower thermal and mechanical engine loads than others who use high risk strategies of higher turbocharger boost pressure to achieve a similar quoted power result.
PHASE III smart power also means improved throttle response and great day to day driveability Along with crisp turbocharger response, a tidal wave of torque and tyre frying horsepower, the APS PHASE III High Output System delivers relaxed cruising, excellent fuel economy and a huge shot of adrenalin every time you lean on the throttle.
By adopting a totally engineered system approach, APS High Output systems are configured as a comprehensive group of products working in harmony to collectively unleash adrenalin pumping performance.
In addition, all APS Phased Adrenalin High Output Systems are designed to deliver an incremental upgrade path for XR6 Turbo performance enthusiasts. Each Phase builds on top of the previous phase in order to deliver the most cost effective enhancement path. In other words, the APS PHASE III High Output System consists of additional components such as the huge APS front mount intercooler system and ancillary components to be installed over and above the APS PHASE II High Output System.
High powered turbocharged engines rely on highly efficient intercooling to ensure a significant and consistent reduction in charge air temperature. For the APS PHASE III High Output System, APS shoehorned the largest and most efficient bar and plate intercooler core money can buy into the front of the XR6 Turbo - for the highest possible engine performance. Whilst it would have been technically easier and much cheaper to utilize an Australian produced tube and fin core, it would compromise engine performance and indeed the APS philosophy where only the best will do - and in this case, Europe's finest intercooler core has found a home in the APS PHASE III High Output System. Massive reduction in charge air temperature combined with minimal pressure loss through the intercooler results in the ultimate in air to air intercooling for the Falcon XR6 Turbo.
When you consider the craftsmanship in the 304 stainless steel Tig welded exhaust, the highly specified fuel system, enormous bar & plate front mount intercooler, technical sophistication of the Unichip computer, and the precision of the cold air intake we are sure you will appreciate and enjoy the high level of APS engineering for many years to come.
