Re: What Month Did The 220kw Au Come Out

an extract from http://www.webwombat.com.au/motoring...s/2_07_for.htm :

" For instance, a new camshaft designed by Tickford features more aggressive timing and the upper intake manifold is also opened up to enable the installation of a unique Tickford-designed 70mm throttle-body.

Add to this new cylinder heads with improved breathing and performance, new, low-friction roller rockers that allow the engine to rev higher and deliver more consistent valve operation and at the end of it all, a special high flow exhaust manifold and system is fitted, which increases performance considerably. "


also check this thread: http://fordforums.com/showthread.php?t=78526

i know the exhaust on a 220kW consists of extractors and a basic "twin system". Note that i was told that the 220kW motor from the XR8 is different tot he 220kW motor from the Tseries. this is what the man at the ford dealership said.

The early T series cars had alloy heads, but at the same time as the XR8 went to 220kW they changed to iron heads. Believe it or not the iron heads were actually reworked by Yella Terra!
