Ford Vs. Holden

Hi all,

I know this topic may be a sensitive one to some, but I would just like to ask, how does the EF XR6 perform up against a 5 ltr Commodore (185Kw or greater)? Maybe there are a few of you who can speak from personal experiences :-)

Do they make a performance Commodore? I'd put my money on the xr6 esp down low.

Paul,

I meant the SS Commodore. For instance, the VR put out 165Kw, whereas the VS had 185Kw.

The 5.0L VS didnt have 185Kw, it had 168Kw. There was a HSV upgrade available for them though, which brought power to 185Kw.

With 2 equal drivers I think an EF XR6 would would win by a couple lengths over the 1/4 against a 168kw 5.0L VS, the 185Kw would be a bit closer.

Are we talking about the Stock Holden S or the Supercharged version?
The stock S puts out 147kws and 302Nm Torque.

Not sure what the Supercharged version puts out. But I think its around what the XR6 VCT puts out.

Just the S, not supercharged.
So what I gathered is that the EFII XR6 would piss all over the VTII S pack Commodore?

Geez i hate Holdens. But Ford should really bring out a big V8 like they have in the States.
