Everyone feel free to vote. I want to know what your favourite XR model is because it just makes it easier to know what the people on this website are interested in.

Re: Your Favourite MkII BA FALCON XR

who in their right mind would take the NA XR6 if the purchase price isnt an issue

But i say XR8, purely on no turbo lag, engine note, exhaust note, higher towing capacity, and similar fuel consumption, hood scoop

Having said that, I realize what an XR6T can do by investing a couple grand in a Powerchip - something like 300kw / 550Nm

Re: Your Favourite MkII BA FALCON XR

I chose the MkII BA FALCON XR6 Turbo because the fuel consumption is the same as the MkII BA FALCON XR6 and same goes with the F.P.V F6 Typhoon same as the XR6.

The XR6T is quicker from zer0 to 100km/h and the car is lighter 200 or so kilograms so there you go.

The turbo is heavier on fuel than the N/A dude. Cant speak for the Typhoon but I would say it would be around that of the turbo if not a bit better.

Re: Your Favourite MkII BA FALCON XR

My head says the XR6T, but my heart say XR8.
Both get me equally into trouble on occasions, but I'll go the XR8 this time. I had one and loved it.
