I read a while back that FORD was taking supplier contracts for a 6 ltr V8 or something like that which will go into the FORD pickups and the Explorer. Considering the Xr8 and GT block is basically the same as the Explorers, they have to changeover to the new engine and I also read that they produce around 250 kw in base tune and the torque around 520Nm.
So hopefully that will go into the fairmont and as for the XR8 it will be 295kw and GT will be 330kw and wait for it
THE ALMIGHTY GTHO-375kw.
PLEASE DONT TELL ME IM DREAMING.
