Question ED XR8 Sprint

Re: ED XR8 Sprint

By reading the compliance plate mate, they both use a different engine, from memory* the engine code will be either a code "Z" or "T" someone here will decifer which one it is as i dont have my Ford w/s manual on me.

Re: ED XR8 Sprint

There would be a few bits that would "normally" be left off a mock up, one I can think of is the small wheel arch extensions at the front just above the bumper. These were never used on any other car so it would have to be hard to get them.

They had a higher redline on the tacho I think which I can't imagine most people doing a copy would bother with.

Gidday, from WA!!! Easiest way to identify a genuine sprint,black (instead of red) inserts in the bumpers & body mouldings,& "T" engine code on the compliance plate, and the genuine exhaust split into 2 after the cats then rejoined over the rear axle. Hope this helps in some way. ELGT4me
