Buying or have a Falcon XR6 GT3582r Barra Turbo?
The earliest XR6 Falcons are coming up to their 20th birthdays in a few years.
As such, you may want to check out the turbocharger as a priority on these older XR6 Falcons.
And unless it’s already had a replacement turbo, the original, OEM GT3582 Garrett turbocharger, is going to be a bit tired.
Aside from the general age / wear-and-tear factor, if the turbo lasted that long it’s likely the car has been serviced religiously.
This is a good thing.
Especially as the BA-BF Ford barra engine turbo often fails due to lack of oil lubrication.
The problem is usually caused by the filter or oil restrictor in the oil feed pipe, becoming fouled by dirty oil.
This slows or completely blocks oil flow into the turbocharger CHRA, causing bearing failure and shaft seizure.
Obviously the same goes if you are looking for a replacement Ford barra engine for sale.
And regular servicing (oil & filer changes), go a long way to mitigate this problem.
Replacement with a XR6 Barra turbo Upgrade
However, with used vehicles of this age, it’s often hard to ascertain service and maintenance history.
So if there is any sign of turbocharger wear (noise / leaking oil / blowing smoke), then replacement is recommended.
We see a lot of these issues in our business, Turbochargers Plus.
And we always advise replacing the old Garrett Turbo and oil feed line, if a turbo swap-out is required.
These after-market replacements save you tons, and can give you even more power and performance than the original Garrett turbocharger.
So, if you are looking to do a barra turbo upgrade, the billet upgrade will help smooth out that initial turbo lag the XR6 is know for.
