2003 XR8 Update

I managed to get some info out of Ford today, who have suggested that the 2003 XR8 will be running the 5.0 ltr 220kw.

See what I mean DK.

Rick you have been told some dodgy information my friend. Unless your dealer thinks current stock are 2003 models there are no more 5 litre units left. We don't know for sure what we will be getting but the strong rumour is a new 5.4 unit from the US

It is definately a 5.4L V8, no 5.0Ls.

Because ford are out of 5.0 engines except ones earmarked for the T series build and they no longer make them in the USA...

Sounds like you guys have more reliable info than I have and I certainly hope that it is a 5.4ltr.

You can bet your house on that there will be no 5.0L Windsar V8s but instead 5.4L V8s

FFS.. If there's a 5.0 Windsor in the '03 XR8 then I WILL buy a SS or Clubbie R8. Now those who know me well enough know that that will never happen... Hence the 5.4 Modular being in Barra.. Hence me purchasing said vehicle..
