Lightbulb EBII XR6 Vs AUII XR6

Just been reading the November 1992 Issue of Wheels (GT Collectors Edition) and stubled on some very interesting data.

They done a comparo between the VP Commodore SS V6 and the EBII XR6.
What got me was the times of the EBII XR6 it really went like stink.
The article says these times were done with a full tank of fuel and 2 onboard.

Here is a contrast times between an AUII XR6 tested in Wheels at November 2000. Both are 5 speed manuals.

EBII AUIIHP
0-60 3.2 3.8
0-80 4.8 5.5
0-100 7.2 8.2

1/4's 15.2@142km/h 1/4's 15.8@114km/h

Should be noted Motor mag have got 7.88 0-100 and 15.33 1/4's out of an AUII HP. Still i'm very curious how the EBII can jump to 100km/h so quick.
Keeping note that the AUII has identical weight , more power, free'er revving engine I cannot see why the AUII cannot match the times of the EBII. Comparing the EBII it makes the Magna VRX look stupid.

Just a thought to discuss.

Hehehe maaaaaaybe not on film, but would be interesting for a head to head comparo.

By the looks of things, your car is very very similar to the EBII XR6, not suprised if you'll beat me.

Should be noted as well that the gearbox's have identical ratio's and diff's the same as well.

There could be a lot of factors that govern the times.

Heat, rain, driver, how much fuel, better timing devices, car tuning etc.

Remember that the EB XR6 was a true V8 killer.

ebs weigh about 1300kg, and as far as i know, the au XR6HP was about 1500kg, and the XR6 VCT was about 1600kg, due to the weight of the IRS fitted standard on the VCT models, i remember motor saying in a side not that the HP was dropped because it was quicker in a straight line than the HP, but cost heaps more.

my eb XR6 would do about a 16 flat if im lucky, it has issues at the moment, but it pulls hardcore in the midrange.

my bad, it says 1350kg on the rego form, i just went out and looked at the owners manual, I6 models range from 1480 to 1560kg (poverty pack to fairmont giha) and v8s are heavier than that, obviously.

i wish they were 1350kg, i would be able to do 15 flat standard!
