biggrin 1993 Eb Xr8

Heya Guys!

I'm buying a 1993 Ford Falcon XR8 5L Auto, and I'm just wondering what the spec's are. The dealer said it puts out 185kW standard... But somehow I don't believe that.

I could be wrong :) - but I am just wondering if any of you guy's know the specs on it? or a page with the specs of them...

Also how do they compare to the VR SS?

Thanks heaps guys!!

Given that the XR8 is in reasonable nick, there is no comparision betwen an XR8 and a VS Commonhoare.

You shouldn't have to think twice.

Id say a VR SS would be quicker off the line, due to its lighter weight and shorter geared Auto.


Wheels mag did a comparison between VR S & SS and ED XR6 & XR8...
The XR6 won :s6: :s3
