285 kw for XR8 moded

A mechanic that i know told me that you can get an XR 8 to 285kw by just doing the exhaust system,cold Air intake and DJR cams,not bad if it's true going by his figures,and thats without the Chip.

Re: 285 kw for XR8 moded

sounds good John but those cams they use in the DJR cars didn't show much on the quarter even with Dick or Steve Johnson driving...

285 rwkw? or flywheel numbers?

i think 285rwkw is unlikely, and also think it unlikely (although i may be wrong) that they have tested on on an engine dyno, as opposed to a chassis dyno.

Good to see the experts at work with their flywheel guestimation calculators!

which would make the figures sound great to everybody, but mean little on the blacktop.

actually, rather like the DJR320!

Re: 285 kw for XR8 moded

crow actually state that the cams can't be fitted without a chip. the car will not idle without a tune that can only be performed with the use of a piggyback.....

not really up with all this boss technology, but from what I can understand the boss and it's associated electronics create alot more hassels when it comes to modifying than the EEC and old windsor ever did.

is this true?

Re: 285 kw for XR8 moded

An XR8 with full exhaust and CAI should easily make that power, no need for cams. Thats only an extra 25 kw.
