Re: Au2 Xr8
Yes the 220kw in the AUII is a damn good engine, i can go as far as saying it's the sweetest windsor and thats taking the 5.6L into account. Sure the 5.6L has much more power but the 220kw revs very very nicely (6250rpm cutout) being quite under square. Power band was relatively wide as well.
Despite 700cc less the 220kw Xr8 will catch alot of lazy GenIII's in a traffic light brawl, especially rolling acceleration.
