mad

The Maloo beat the Herrod XR8. What a shame. Although hardly a fair fight except on price.

Only one thing gets me - I wrote a letter bagging Ford for not putting the good product in the showrooms (ie. stop building show cars and start building real cars we can BUY) and saying how I don't like the look of the T-Series. They bag me and say buy a TE50. As Rove says - 'What THE...?' :confused:

Herrod XR8; blueprinted 5.0 with alloy heads and GT40 intake stuff. Uprated exhaust. 250kW at 5800, 450Nm at 4100. $15000 over an XR8.

Car did 0-100 in 7.02 and 400m in 14.96.

Doesn't sound like 250kW to me with those times. The engine spec sounds very similar to the Synergy 220.

Apparently Holden is developing a turbo V6 due at the end of 2003 or start of 2004 and the top version will have 239kw@5500rpm & 493nm@2000rpm. They will also build alloy V8s here in 5.3,5.7 and 6.0 forms. The base version will have 500nm.

I dont know if Ford is building simmilar speced engines or not but as ive said before they should'nt be aiming to match what Holden has now but what they'll have in a couple of years. VY will get a 5 Auto deffinatly and theres hot rumours of gas discharge headlamps that create high night vision and allow for very creative lens shapes indicating that Fords ordinary effort with the AU means that Ford will be trying to fix its styling and get a new V8 while Holden just has to fine tune a well accepted product. I hope Ford does'nt get left behind with more stuff aswell as a 5 Auto and power outputs yet again. I could'nt buy a highline Falcon and have to listen to Holden people i know bragging about their exec having a 5 auto when i have a 4.

Motors response made no sense to your question Pete.

Motor states whet we knew already about Ford {before Geoff came along} not giving Tickford what they wanted. They also state that the fishermans bend are getting too cocky.

$15k for what exactly? They obviously have no idea on what the **** they are doing if its bearly breaking into the 14s. For that money I could get a EB V8 running 11s N/A!!

Herrod, have a look at what the yanks are getting out of the 5.0L and then try selling us something decent!

Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords Mag did a EFI 5.0L Build up and got 424Hp@6000Rpm (I think) , stock displacement with 10:1 compression ratio with all of the parts easily available for decent prices (over there).
