Lightbulb What to do to get about 260kw out of 5 litre ?

ok guys, looking at getting the XR moving a little quicker.
Not toooo sure what to do, whether to get 347 stroker, or just stick with 302.
whats your recommendations ? this is probably been posted millions of times.
but i have just set a mental goal of about 260-270 kw.

thanks

Luke

At the wheels or at the flywheel? A guy in our club put a supercharger on his 220Kw XR8. It had 160rwKw before and I think around 243 rwkw after. That's about 350Kw at the flywheel. You should be abkle to get at least 220rwKw from the 200Kw motor. All up cost of around $9000.

Cheap horsepower!

yeah if the finance can handle it go the new car.
But other wise I'd be stroking it and talking to Herrods.
You could get 260 at the flywheel with out to much trouble from a 5lt (cobra heads/manifold/ medium level block work blah) but it would be more drivable with the extra cubes

If i'm not wrong Herrods offers a 250kw engine package which includes upgraded exhaust, cam and computer tuning. I can hazzard a guess that teh engine would be quite lumpy with the new cam.

you could always stroke it AND supercharge it if you were feeling rich .... the ...errr.. down side.... is that you would get far more than 270Kw!

Dude if you love that car drive the Xr8 when it comes out before you spend the dosh on what you got.
You don't want to spend all the money just to find yourself wishing you'd got the new one.
Thats my advice.
