Well i reckon that the ford guys at the dyno day pull decent figures. I mean the GTS in the pre-VT2 days made 215kw and the GTS-R was 230kw at the engine. They had the stroked 308's and made the capacity 5.7. I think reading around the most powerful 308 wth the XX3 option produced 195kw, i reckon the 302 of Ford making 200 and 220kw out of the factory is pretty good.
If we get that stroked windsor we'll be getting 170-180 and the wheels stock no problems.
I damn wish that the XR8 will get a slightly de-tuned stroker 302 producin 225-230kw, that will show the holden guys.
:D :D :D
I think the best figure of the dyno day was 166kw at the wheels, correct me if i'm wrong.
