XF EFI had 120kw, not sure about the XE

Best advice I can give is never own one, worst engines ever.

Re: First 250 Injection?

Had an XE S-pak with a four speed manual and EFI.
Wasn't a fantastic engine, but was sort of alright for its day.
Usual 250 problems. I think they made about 111kw and 325Nm of torque.

most definetly, the injected one would run out at 175 Ks and the carby ones would do just over 200 kph .

Re: First 250 Injection?

The EFI engine was a "replacement" for the V8 that Ford had stoppped producing.
It was available accross the range, but mostly found in the fairmont ghias.

The EFI's usually require a rebuild every 200,000km or so, always need tuning, and refuse to run on gas without constant problems...

Cant stress enough how much these engines should be avoided!
