Well lets get real technical. I used (convert vers. 4.1) to convert 2.8 bar and was ond pasting what this software converted it as.
The 2.8 bar std XR8 figure for 220KW engine and the 4.3bar for the 250KW T3 engine was pulled from Ford technical service bulletins.
If you read my post properly I said quite clearly as you have also confirmed in your post std pressure is 2.8 bar for 220kw xr8.
