AV Engines

Just got the new issue of Motor with all the AV engine lineup, standard six cops 190kw, base v8 gets 220kw, xr6 turbo is 240kw and xr8 gets 260, should see off a few gen3 pushrod dinosaurs at the lights

I think those power outputs are a little optimistic. Ford isnt gonna jump into everyones pants with power outputs that are just plain 'out there'. There is no need to have power levels that are way beyond everyone else. And it wont leave much power up margin for Ford later on down the track, when it's time for AVII etc etc.

For the standard 6 you are probably looking at around 165kw.
For the Turbo XR6 you are probably looking at the 200kw mark.
For the standard V8 probably around 220kw
For the T's - who knows, possibly around 250 - 275kw

There are only 2 states to be in:
Western Australia, and pissed.

Yeah I think the motor power figures are fairly inaccurate, they seem to be over by about 20-30kw IMO

You sure about that. Didn't Holden do that with the Ls1?. There wasn't any need to do what they did either but it didn't stop them.

I reckon Motor are only a tad over.

180kW stock 6
230kW turbo XR6
220kW SOHC 5.4l (the same as motor) V8
250kW SOHC 5.4l XR8
275kW+ DOHC 5.4l Tickfords

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for a life. - Andrew Brown
