frown VY's make 190Kw stock?

In the courier mail today they reckon that the standard V6 makes 190kw. They added that this wasn't official yet but it's a bit of a worry isn't it?

Tisk tisk. Surely you don't believe what you read in the Courier Mail? I'm sure it's crap.

Does anyone have a spare BA XR6T ute they want to give me

On the Holden Media site it says that the V-6's (NA and SC) make the same numbers as they did in VX (152KW and 171KW)

  • Barra 182 - 4.0 DOHC 24 Valve Inline 6
  • Barra 220 - 5.4 SOHC 24 Valve V8
  • Barra 240T - 4.0 DOHC 24 Valve Turbo Charged Inline 6
  • Boss 260 - 5.4 DOHC 32 Valve V8
  • Boss 290 - 5.4 DOHC 32 Valve V8

Probably rough guesses about the new V6.

Yep VY 11 will make about 190kw stock but not VY1.

Also interesting that the new 235kw Gen 3 is only available in SV8 and SS models and Berlinas,Calais,Statesman etc keep VXs 225kw. This is very good for Fords new 220 in Ghia,Fairlane etc although with VY2 Gen 4 will arrive.

Motor has driven them all at launch and they say the official quote is 225kw because for 235 they need the louder exhaust which does'nt suit luxy models?

Yes i am aware, a dealer from ls1.com, has stated (he was also at the launch) that they will all be the same now, originally it was going to be like this but now they decided to keep them the same .
