The article presents information about Ford Motor Co.'s new car BF XR6 Turbo. It is a much refined car and a lost of the road and body vibration noise and the tweaking exhaust has been eliminated. The intermediate and rear exhaust cans are far stiffer, as are the hangers all the way along the pipe. Besides tuning the noise and meeting Euro III emissions regulations, it's eliminated a lot of unwanted vibrations, with the remaining noise. It's also going to be a faster, stronger car in daily life. Ford's new big PCM is a far more capable unit and while the Turbo engine delivers only 5kW more power, torque is up 30Nm.
