EB XR8 vs EF XR6

Now this may be a bit childish but I own an EBXR8 and my uncle owns an EFXR6 both are autos and standard.
Just want to know who would win the drag. He recons the 6 will blow me away.

I'd put my mooolah on the 6.....

its no secret that even Tickfords first 'real' go on the EB/ED six made it a quicker can than the EB/ED XR8...

Unless its a Sprint of course.

Well I know in stock form the EB/ED XR6 were slightly quicker down the 1/4 than the XR8.

I am not sure on what the weight differences are between the EB/ED & EF series falcons. Also are the diff ratios any different?

I dont know about blowing away either, you will find the XR8 comes into it's own up higher in the rev range.

Mine tends to really kick in at around the 2800 - 3000 Rpm mark, where the 6 might be starting to run out of puff.

Remember all those years back where the 351C powered XY GTHO & the 265 Hemi powered E49 pull simular 1/4 mile times.

Who really cares, yours will sound good, his won't, yours is likely never to blow a head gasket, his headgasket blowing is likely, yours has a better torque from idle, his doesnt, yours is likely to have less problems, yours is likely to have less oil leaks and best of all once again it will sound better!

yeah what damage said!

All you need to do to the EB XR8 is a set of extractors, bigger throttle body any an EL2 upper and lower intake and you can say byebye to the XR6 no probs. Then get a diff with lower gears like 3.23 or 3.45 and he will have no chance.
There is a HEAP more aftermarket parts for 5ltrs out there than 6's. All ppl with 6's can do to beat ya is chuck on a blower or turbo. But if they have to resort to that, you'll know their gettin desperate for power to beat ya.
I was sick and tired of dudes in 6's beatin me in my EBXR8. But as soon as I got my throttle body and extractors put on, I cleaned them up no probs. Naturally aspirated, your EBXR8 has a heap more potential than any six that I know of. (corect me if I'm wrong).
It's good to see a fellow 5ltr owner still tryin to kick it with the best.

BTW, I'm no 6 hater but I get a horn when I hear a PHAT 5ltr peggin the tread down the road. I love that sound!

I put the NC (when it was stock) up againts a EF XR6 twice and both times we both passed 100k mark at the sometime, there was nothing in it the whole way. Considering the weight of the NC (and going againts what most people here think) I'd say your XR8 would match it if not do better, as for your uncle, tell him he's dreaming.....:)

Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti XR6 and they can bring the fight to the V8's

I reckon it could go either way. But I would put money on the 6. It will probably come down to driver/conditions/weight on board etc. I couldn't see the XR6 blowing you away though.

You know there is only one way to find out... At the legal off street drags.

What he said. Good exhaust and dif will do wonders.
