AP's Old XR8 Does Hot Time at WSID

RAR347, aka Nick the madman got a bit upset when I called him a soft appendage for not beating my 13.2 second run in my AU2 Herrod XR8 (he's the guy that bought the car). My run was complete with jack, spare wheel, and a full tank of fuel so it wasn't too bad.

So, I guess the challenge was there for him to do something about it.

Didn't take long: try 12.63 at 117.4mph albeit with dropped pipes.

Not bad for a street Windsor in a fully optioned XR8 including Sunroof eh? The terminal speed shows good promise and Nick assures me he's still running the Unichip with a Motec/Haltech on the way.

Re: AP's Old XR8 Does Hot Time at WSID

He ditched my small cam and then proceeded to replace the only bit Ford Australia had left in the engine bay - the block. It's an improved engine from the spec I created but essentially I was after good midrange and he's sacrificed that a little by going for an extended the top end power band.

Re: AP's Old XR8 Does Hot Time at WSID

347 stroker, trickflow cam (which has definitely changed), trickflow track heat heads, trickflow track heat intake, rollers, stud girdle, big sump, 10.2:1 comp approx, T3 82mm throttle body, T3 intake and air box, herrod headers and custom twin 2.5 inch exhaust, unichip. I think a few things have changed from that but it's much the same as the ideas above.
