Were all AUII XR8's 220kw??

Just wondering whether all the AUII XR8's were 220kw or was there a less powerful version offered. Please excuse my ignorance as I am new to Falcons

there is 220kw AU's. all ive seen have a full body kit so they may have been special productions or something or just beefed up to get rid of them to make way for new models.

I had a Sep 2000 XR8 and it was 200kw.
from memory the rebel kited XR8's AU11's were 220 and so were the AU111 XR8's, but I'm pretty sure they didnt come out till sometime 2001

Re: Were all AUII XR8's 220kw??

Okay. Enough vagueness. From the 01st June 2001 production the AU2 XR8s were fitted with iron head 220 engines. This is verified by checking the build plate for a production date of June 01 or later. Also check the engine for the Tickford 70mm throttle body. Early 220s were not necessarily fitted with the 220 badges on the rear and the engine cover.

Re: Were all AUII XR8's 220kw??

Do the 200kw engines still have the signed plate on the engine, or is that only the 220kw version?
