Ford began production of the BA XR6 Turbo, an iconic car in 2002. This Turbo car the enjoyed cult status among automotive enthusiasts. The car was originally available with a 4 speed BTR transmission and a 5 speed manual known as the T5. A six speed man trans was introduced in the MK 2 versions. Both original 4 and 5 speed transmissions struggled once power was lifted by the performance enthusiast.
The BF was introduced in October 2005 and was manufactured till February 2008. The new car came with a face lift and the brand new ZF auto transmission called a 6HP26.
This transmission was a huge step forward for the Falcon range and was just what was needed.
