Re: XR8 Sprint

Yep the Sprint engine and other running gear bits are very different to the std ED XR8.
Per above, also add 24lbs injectors, different extractors (limiting but they are different), different ECU mappings, other things for the sprint include, close ratio gear box, quick stearing rack, different suspension mounting points etc.

Re: XR8 Sprint

Ghiastyle, Are you after anything specific? The sprint motor was basicly the same as the EB GT. The sprint was quoted as being 195kw. but they weremore like 200kw out of the box..

Re: XR8 Sprint

From Memory the EB, ED, EF use GT40 heads. the AUs use the GT40P heads. The inlet manifold is similar but not exacty the same across the board...

Re: XR8 Sprint

165/170/185 kw E-series engines use E7 heads.
EB GT/ED Sprint use GT40 heads.
AU use GT40P heads.

I'm fairly sure the EL GT and FBT use GT40 heads as well.

165/170kw E-series have HO manifolds.
EB GT and EL GT use the GT40 upper manifold.
ED Sprint has the Cobra upper, which is pretty much a cast version of the GT40.
FBT, 185kw EL and AU use the Explorer upper.

GT40, Cobra and Explorer manifolds share the same lower manifold.
