IMO, i think the commie looks a bit flimsy, as in the cab part being huge with the bodykit and all that, then the middle looks weak

it almost looks as if they have gave up on it and cut the top off the stationwagon made it into a tray and got rid of the doors after the b pillar. Although I'm sure Holden did a good job :rolleyes:

At the Enfield Auctions I saw a black AU2 xr8 ute. I started it up and straight away notice that it had a very growly exhaust note. I opened the hood and it had a Synergy 5000 engine. Isn't that the Tseries engine? It didn't sound like a standard XR8! The number plate I think was XR-08U, it had about 15K on the clock, leather interior, momo steering wheel and chrome roll bar.

:D :D

Interesting. Would like to know the history on that beast:)
The simple explaination is that the previous owner changed the exhaust and engine markings but that would be a long shot. What engine power rating were they claiming for this car?

The AUII XR8 has the synergy markings on the engine, just a different engine cover. Should have an engraved signature of who built the engine too... :D

Yes that is true FM but that is for 200kw units only. The ute in question should be 185 and of the utes I have seen the plentum chamber badge is the same as mine.
Sedans of series 2 vintage do have the synergy marking and have the old Tseries 200 unit with a different engine moulding. I have one on my car and it caused untold confusion with the parts people
