I know that they were available in the ED range but were they offerred in other years as well. Were they simply the XR8 motor or were they an option in other models eg fairmont, ghia.
They seem to have considerable power compared to the standard 5.ol motor (2ookw) . Were they a Tickford motor & if so how did they get the power improvements over the stabdard motor? . Are there many of these around?? or are they scarce.
Originally posted by Martin Some say the EBGT's rating of 200Kw was overrated though....
What actually happened was Ford Australia used a different method of calculating power to Ford in the US. Allowing for 'translation', it works out to 183 kW apparently. HSV's 200kW VPs of the time used the same calculation method as Ford US, so their 200kW was more powerful than the Falcon GT's.

As it has been said, it was a cobra motor from the states. Differences were GT40 heads, roller rockers, cobra intake, 24lb fuel injectors, 70mm MAF, 65mm throttle body and better cam. It was a much better engine package than the EB GT, although power figures were about the same.
