Re: XF engine power vs EA

I thought the 4.1 XF EFI produced about the same as a CFI EA. That being 120kW.

Re: XF engine power vs EA

The XF 4.1 seems to have a whole lot more torque than an EA motor, my mates Carby XF punches of the line a whole lot harder than my EA.

Re: XF engine power vs EA

According to Wheels February '88:

XF EFI 4.1 unleaded: 121 kW @ 4000 rpm
EA 3.9 CFI: 120 kW @ 4250 rpm

Torque:
XF: 325 Nm @ 3000 rpm
EA: 311 Nm @ 3250 rpm

I can't seem to find the redlines of the two at the moment.
