Difference between XR8 AU-AUIII

Some questions about the xr8s that are puzzling me, hope some of you guys can shed some light.

The AUXR8 has 185kW at the engine and the AUII and AUIII each have 220kW. What is it that makes the 35kW difference and how do the models compare over sprint times ?

Would the AUXR8 respond equally as well if it was supercharged as would the later models ? Overall are there big differences between the cars in other aspects besides performance ?

Cheers

I believe AUII were 200kw only.

According to http://www.geocities.com/falconfacts...uiifalcon.html
Both AUII and AUIII XR8 sedans had 220kW

AUII up until JUNE 2001 had 200. THen they got the 220KW motor and standard side skirts. If it has the 220 Motor a badge will be placed under the XR8 one on the boot, and it will be after June 2001 build.

One I was thinking of was a 200kw, AUII, no skirts. Hard to not get colour coded mirrors on black.

The AUII (series 2 lol) 220kW got newer custom heads, new extractors, different cam, and a new tune of the EEC-V to get that figure.

Haha, Dark Horse none of them came with the tickford Badges on the right hand side of the boot, that was only T series cars.

And you couldnt get an AU III Rebel, it was only AUII.
