Re: XD vs EB vs VS vs 929

unofficial figures
Car 100 1/4 mile
xd 13.0 18.5
eb 9.7 17.1
929 - 17.5 (not sure if auto or man)
can't find stas on vs but will assume its around 1/2 sec faster than auto eb down the quarter. there you will most likely be

Hope this is helpful heh. As you can see, the XD will get owned by all the others. Personally, I don't know much about the 4.1 inline-six, I'd just drop in a V8 and call it a day.

Re: XD vs EB vs VS vs 929

a 2 second reduction in time down the quarter is pretty costly, cheapest is probably turbo

Re: XD vs EB vs VS vs 929

I already have a 2" exhaust ( EB has a 2.5", the rest are completly stock), i am going to put a 3.45 lsd diff under the xd soon and then extractors and mabye a 350db holley with manifold and stage 3 cam/ high stall, would that even things up a bit? ( ahh, yep).... what would be the power and 1/4 mile times then?

Re: XD vs EB vs VS vs 929

I wanna keep it a 6 and atmo for insurance reasons....

The EB2 and 929 had a drag and the 929 got whipped, the 929 feels really slow (no kick in back), but the EB feels quicker (huge kick in back) than what it should be.... ford magic...

But it might be the way my freinds and me drive that will decide, the EB owner and i both spool up our autos, to a bit under 3000rpm for the EB and when ever it sounds right for me ( i dont have tacho, but i treat it bad).... the others dont know how to drive in a straight line....

Those specs for the xd seem right on coz i have trouble staying with pulsars, lasers, malvin stars, lancers... anything really
