Re: AU1 XR8 Questions
Thanx 4 the help guys. I always thought the XR8 engines specification went as follows-
EB,ED- E7 heads, restricted headers,exhaust, intake. CFi injection. (165 kw)
EF/EL1- same as above but with thermo fans as std (168 kw)
EL2- gained explorer intake system and MPFi. Still had E7 heads, restricted extractors. (185 kw)
AU1- Same as above (185 kw)
AU2 (200 kw)- Gained better stock extractors, twin ex system and GT40P heads hence the 15 kw increase.
AU2/AU3 (220 kw version)- Better exhaust system again, revised cam, compression ratio.
But looks like I'm proven wrong! What changes then were made between AU1 and 2 for the 15 kw increase if the AU1 had GT40p heads etc?
