difference b/w EB/ED and EF/EL xr engines

hey all, i was just wondering, whats the difference between the EB/ED xr6 and the EF\EL xr6 engines. they have both got 164kw, but the EB/ED doesnt have the broadband manifold or EECIV, and still has the old clutch fan raping power. which makes me think that the EB/ED xr engine must be worked internally more then the EF/ELs.

Re: difference b/w EB/ED and EF/EL xr engines

EB/ED is 161kw.

There are a few differences, cams, compression and the head is a bit different.

BBM manifolds don't do anything to top end power, they only affect the bottom end.

Re: difference b/w EB/ED and EF/EL xr engines

but the standard I6 in Eb/EDs are about 145kw or so, and the EF/EL is 157kw, so the gain in an ED/Ed xr is about 19kw, but the gain in the EF/El is only 7kw, I reckon the EF/El xr6s have alot more power then 164kw, cos 7kw aint gonna take 1sec off the quater mile, like the xr6s do

Re: difference b/w EB/ED and EF/EL xr engines

Its their Diff ratio of 3.45 That helps make them faster than the standard 157kw Gli/Futura/Fairmonts whose diff ratio's are usually 3.08 or 3.23.
