Power to Weight

All manuel unless not offered

TS50 250 = 6.76 : 1 kg/kW
XR8 220 = 7.09 : 1 kg/kW
XR8 200 = 7.80 : 1 kg/kW
5.0 Forte = 8.86 : 1 kg/kW
5.0 SR = 8.86 : 1 kg/kW
XR6 HP = 9.01 : 1 kg/kW
XR6 VCT = 9.01 : 1 kg/kW
4.0 Forte = 9.87 : 1 kg/kW
4.0 SR = 9.87 : 1 kg/kW

GTS VX = 5.51 : 1 kg/kW
Clubsport = 6.33 : 1 kg/kW
Exec V8 = 6.78 : 1 kg/kW
SS V8 = 7.12 : 1 kg/kW
S Supa = 8.83 : 1 kg/kW
S V6 = 9.93 : 1 kg/kW(holden thinks the s is 16kg less than ex)
Exec V6 = 10.04 : 1 kg/kW

Some predictions

180Kw Falcon = 8.61 : 1 kg/kw
210kw Falcon = 7.38 : 1 kg/kw
240Kw Falcon = 6.46 : 1 Kg/kw
275kw XR8 = 5.67 : 1 kg/kw
275Kw TS50 = 6.15 : 1 kg/kw
300Kw Ts50 = 5.63 : 1 kg/kw
310kw TS50 = 5.45 : 1 kg/kw

From this you can see the 180Kw falcon should be able to keep up with the S 3.8 Supercharged.

A 210kw Turbo 4.0 should be pretty close to a SS in performance

Theres a obvious market for ye T series powered XR8. Due to the T series being heavy, the XR8 would come close to GTS performance levels.

TS50 needs 275Kw to sell against the HSV Clubsport

Falcons being more aerodynamic than Holdens should do better in top speed with the same power..

In relation to a T series powered XR8 wouldn't this be the TE50?

This is given the dash and bit are not high series.

Anyone know more on the TE50 specs?

Isn't the 5.6 stroker conservative at 250kW. Someone said it could be around 270kW.

No idea ;p I can't afford a TS50, so I didn't bother asking.... However I do know that FTE have a special T3 promotion video... the FTE chappy mentioned I could have a gander if I was driving past some time.
