Just got back from the Holden V Ford show, loved it once again.
Herrod/Maughn Thiem Ford BA XR8 sedan did 492 rwhp in the dyno shootout while the Starr Monaro did 483 rwhp.
The XR8 was running a Vortech + Unichip, no intercooler an standard(i think) exhaust. Not sure what boost it was running though.
CAPA had a black XR8 ute running a stage 1 vortech kit which made 380 rwhp.
Eddie Tassone had his twin-turbo commo there again and after a few lil troubles made 1009 rwhp!!!
After the show they had an arena show with Monster trucks, Speedway an Free Style moto-x. In the speedway one of the supersedans clouted the wall exiting one of the corners right where we were standing an smashed a hole through the concrete barrier!
Luckily it was nicely air-conditioned in the hall as it's around 38-40 degrees this weekend here in adelaide, bummer i missed the miss nationals contest but plenty of nice fords to check out on display made it a great day!
P.S. I wanna blower for me ute NOW!!
