Weren't they 172kW? The FPV site states it was 170kW but I'm sure all the brochures and magazines said it was 172kW. I've got an EL XR brochure in my desk at work (as you do) but it's for Series II. I'll check my Motor mags when I get home.

Sure it was 172kW...

They were officially tagged 170kw, that is what it is in the vehicle manual and the Ford specs book.

Im going from memory, from what my vehicle book states.

The 170 was for EFXR8.

This is from the FPV website (the link in my first post)
Quote:
Windsor V8 power output went up by 5 kW for a total of 170 kW for the EF XR8 only. The first 824 examples of the EL XR8 shared this engine.
Mine is not one of the first ELs but one of the last ones, as built date is 9/97.

Im pretty sure there was only 1kw difference from the EFXR6 to the EFXR8 when originally released, cause I remember thinking that 1kw difference in the XR8 was BS and definetly a

Will confirm with the factory book tonight, what this space.
