Power = 373kw @ 5250rpm
Torque = 667Nm @ 3250rpm
Yup nice figures... though its the aluminum block and possibly very similar heads to our GT. Whack on the Supercharger and spend a few $000 more and away you go. Very similar.
Its likely to be here - but not for years. Don't expect a GT-HO until the "new model".
Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....
45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
