ED XR8 Sprint Spotters guide
OK a few questions for those who know the XR8 Sprint and or have one etc. I am looking at purchasing a XR8 Sprint and have a few questions after trolling through all info there is to be had...
Please feel free to correct if wrong..
The stuff I think I know....
365 Sprints made. 184 of them were manual
The engine Code is T
The front guards have a small plastic flare in the leading edge
Body moulds have black insert not other colour.
Only came in White, Red, Polinegion Green, Cobolt Blue and Black.
Options included, Cruise Control, Sun Roof, Premium sound
Special Sprint 16" alloy wheels
All Had momo stearing wheel with and without cruise control buttons
Special inlet manifold (with Sprint plaque)
GT40 Iron Heads
High volume MAF meater
5500 Red line on tacho (normal was 5000rpm)
Were $56000 new and were basicly a light weight EBGT
White sticker on driver side rocker cover with build info for engine
Did they come factory with a Alloy spare?
Is there any way to tell the GT40 heads from the outside?
Is there any way to tell if the factory extractors are still there rather than after market?
Is there a part number on the MAF meater block?
Is there a part number on the inlet manifold?
Is the cluch anything special?
Is the cluch cable fairly thik and have a orange outer that extends almost to the front of the motor before it hooks around down under the engine back to the clutch?
Are there any markings on the diff to show LSD?
Does the stiker on the drivers side rocker cover have any numbers that match those on the ID plate? What does this info relate to?
Did normal XR8 engines have the stickers on the rocker cover?
What colour should the rocker cover be?
That should do it for the moment..
All sound over the top, well, yeh I guess so. Just want to get one as stock as possible.
