An F6 engine can be classified as a six-cylinder, horizontally opposed piston engine. The cylinders are arranged three on either side of the central crankshaft. It is also referred to as a boxer-six engine. Because of this, each cylinder is paired with one other and moves simultaneously.
1.6-liter 8-valve Mazda F6 engine
The 1.6-liter 8-valve Mazda F6 engine was produced from 1982 to 1987. It was installed in base modifications of the 626 model and on the B1600 index pickup truck. The engine featured an 8-valve head and carburetor. It is one of five engine models in the F-engine family, which also includes the F3, F4, and F5. This engine produces around 73 hp at 5500 rpm.
Mazda offered different versions of the F6 engine for various regions, emissions requirements, and market needs. The petrol SOHC 8-valve head and the petrol DOHC 16-valve head both shared the same gasket pattern. The 1.6-liter F6 engine was available in eight-valve and 12-valve variations. The 2.0-liter FE diesel engine was also available.
The R-series engines are close relatives of the F-block. They share the same engine block, but the F-block is overbuilt for naturally aspirated duty. The R-series engine is now made in a different form, with a counter-rotating balance-shaft and direct-injection technology. Mazda also produced a diesel engine called the R-CD, which shares the same engine block as the F6 but features a different design. The R-CD and F6 engines produced approximately the same amount of power as the F-block, and the two engines are similar in their displacements. The R-series engine also featured a supercharger.
The Mazda F6 engine was also available in the Mazda Deluxe. In Australia, the Mazda Deluxe was sold as a base model, but was later replaced by the Mazda Eclipse. The Mazda F6 was offered in four-door and five-door body styles.
4.0-liter DOHC Garrett GT3582r engine
If you’re in the market for a turbocharger, you may want to consider the Garrett GT3582R. This turbocharger is designed for engines displacing 3.5L to 5.0L. It works best with Ford V-6 and V-8 small-block engines. This turbocharger is factory-rated for 370 to 650 horsepower. A cutaway view of the Garrett GT3582R turbocharger shows the turbine wheel, turbine housing, bearing housing, and main shaft.
Garrett Turbochargers are part of the total induction system, which means the engine has more power than the stock engine. These turbochargers increase horsepower and torque, while reducing emissions and increasing fuel economy. They are also available with various performance modifications. Garrett Turbochargers are used in high-performance sports cars.
FPV F6 310 Turbo engine
The F6 310 Turbo engine featured a new low-loss intake and exhaust manifold. It also featured a retuned wastegate and a 13-litre dual-entry airbox. Other significant changes to the F6 include improved performance and reliability, including increased torque and a more balanced torque curve.
The FPV F6 turbo engine delivers 310kW of power and 565Nm of torque. With this kind of torque, the F6 easily trumps any Australian V8 sports sedan. Even the most highly regarded sports cars like the Porsche 911 Carrera S can’t hold a candle to it.
The FPV F6 engine was initially developed in 2004 for the F6 Typhoon sedan and F6 Tornado ute. Ford bought Prodrive for 51 per cent of FPV. It has since been modified in several different models. A more powerful version of the F6 turbo was launched in 2008.
The F6 engine has been a performance car hero since its release. It is the fastest sedan made in Australia, with many motoring stables reporting 0-100km/h times under 5.0 seconds. This engine also boasts massive potential for the aftermarket market. The new FPV Falcon is likely to compete with Holden in Australia, and the F6 will feature a turbocharged 4.0-litre, 24-valve inline-six engine with 310kW of power and 565 Nm of torque between 1950 and 5200 RPM.
The F6 has an electronic-controlled sequential injection system and peak fuel delivery pressure of 4.0 bars. Its intake air mass is used to calculate the amount of fuel required to perform combustion, and the fuel quantity is adjusted according to this feedback from a Heated Oxygen (HEGO) sensor.
