EB XR8 vs EF XR8

Is it possible for an EB to beat the EF?

Yesterday my brother dragged an EF XR8 in my EB and blew him away, but he's not really sure if the guy was going for it.

Just curious.


Apologies if this thread is in the wrong section of the board.

Re: EB XR8 vs EF XR8

Of course, anything is possible on the street... there are alot of variables (e.g. overall car condition, tyres/traction.. list is endless)

Do the EB's and EF's have the same power? I would have though the EB would be a little lighter too, plus you have got exhaust and extractors while the EF may have been stock.

Re: EB XR8 vs EF XR8

I beat an EF/L XR6 on the weekend on a rolling start, so an EB with more power than my XF would probably beat an EF XR8, and I've also heard that the XR6 is quicker than the XR8's so I'd say you'll beat the guy.
But hey what do I know, I drive a 6 popper XF :)

Re: EB XR8 vs EF XR8

like 168kw maybe?

EDIT *** ok yeh you're right.. EFXR8 had 170kw and 398nm..

the EL series 2 had 185 but thats it.. you're talkin EF, which still had the HO manifold and the E7 heads..
