re 220kw

fpv have told me that my car was fitted with 220kw motor,but i guess the only way 2 find out 100% is 2 have car dyno,but i dont c why ford would say there is a 220kw motor in my car, if it was not put in, why would they have any reason 2 miss quote figures,when there is a new model out.then again has the new xr8 really got 260kw

Re: re 220kw

If FPV state that your car was fitted with the 220kw motor, then they would have all the relevant parts to do so. Depend on how the car was run in, it's current state of tune and the octain rating of the fuel. Then you also have some dyno's that read lower than other dyno's...

With so many factors, how can someone have all the KW's that the badge on the car says it has....

Re: re 220kw

Yeah, but they're thinking the sedan. The utes were short changed with the max being the 200 engine.

If I'm wrong there's a few lucky people out there with a rare beast.

Let's make this simple. Check your engine for signs of the following:

- 70mm throttle body shown by having the Tickford logo engraved into the main body

If it doesn't have that it's a 200.

Re: re 220kw utes

I have seen AU3 XR8 utes advertised with 220 kw engines but it could be a mistake. Would'nt be the first time.

Re: re 220kw utes

Well I'll be damned,I honestly didnt think they made 220kw ute's, but if you have had your ute since new and it does have the Tickford engraved throttle body it's a pretty good indication that it is a 220.
