XR8220 Update Required!

Matey - did you get your 220 stickers for the rear guard and engine cover yet?

I'm just wondering because my car should be turning up this week and whether I should hassle the dealer for them.

Pete,

Have you taken delivery of your car yet?

Stock at my dealership has arrived with a 220 badge under the XR8 badge on the back.....

would think yours would come with it.

No haven't got them as yet, but then again haven't hassled the dealer for them as yet.

Given that Partsguy has received stock of them I think a couple of phone calls may be in order later in the week. Just been to busy at work at the moment.

City Ford has been receiving cars with the 220 stickers, however my car is a June build which was before the stickers were ready. Dealers are supposed to retrofit the stickers to the earlier cars. I should be receiving my car this week, however I've almost given up hope... :(

Pete, why fit 220 stickers if you are stroking the engine?

What will your power output be then? Or is this also a secret?

I always like to UNDERstate rather than OVERstate like some of the LS1 cap wearers :D Besides, it's torque that matters - not power.

If the 220 has about 435nm I gather a Stroker should be up around the 500nm mark.
