Differences between EA Falcon and EA S Falcon

Just bought an EA Falcon and I was just wondering what the difference between EA S and just the plain EA model is?

Cheers in advance

Multi point fuel injection only came out in the fairmont ghia and s models. I can't remember the kw advantage. Also a lot of the s models were 5 speed manuals.

Manual EB V8 Fairmont Ghia
Headers, 2.5 inch exhaust, filter, lowered, 17 inch wheels, blah, blah

Hack = BMW m325i (Manual of course)
(OK, it's a 1987 model)

MPFI came out on all falcons, it was an option on the GL's

Basically the S had some of the options standard on it, you wont find anything on an S that can't be found on a GL except for the lumber support and S pak seat trims

Miltipoint was also an option on S models. The only things MPI came standard on was Fairmont Ghia, Fairlane and LTD.

and also the S has a much better instrument cluster. Has the tacho, volts,oil etc... Much nicer too look at, imho. The seats are also trimmed a little nicer.

Also, as zomwit has already stated, MPFI was not standard on S pacs, but an option. The ghia is the only EA to come standard with MPFI.

colour coded bumpers, boot & fuel cap release (is this standard on a gl?), different seats and carpets, with lumbar and height adjustment, different instrument cluster, coolant reserve tank lamp, dropped by 20mm from standard height with harder springs.

A Mate of mine just bought an EA Falcon GL and I have an S Pack.

Both are CFI and his is 100% standard, I have a lukey hiflow exhaust and motor has been completely rebuilt.

His has 222,045kms and mine has just clocked 238,000kms, 20,000kms since rebuild.

Why is my car soooooo much quicker than his from stand still I get about 4-5 car lengths in front of him, can just an exhaust make so much difference?

Also I have no trouble keeping up this a mate who has a 1993 ED x-chaser.

Anyway what I want to know, is there any performance difference between GL and S pack?
