Mmmmm... toothpaste and apples....
Iam a turbo boy as well (F6) and only 300rwkw is exactly that, thats a mild tune. Most of the boys I cruise with run 350 - 450rwkw and E85 is now the fuel of preference. Instant power, drive in a 330rwkw turbo, retune for E85 bang instant 370rwkw. I drive a sportwagon for my company car and I think its the best wagon around.
If it's "ony" 300kw then your car is very very heavy.
300kw is a fast car. Don't bother comparing it to other cars.
Also this thread isn't about hairdryers. The OP is comparing a blown 8 and NA 8.
Some good facts thanks for the replys : ) I might state that he's passed the 1/4 mile in 13.2 mines doing it in roughly 13.7( iPhone app ) but he's feels so much stronger weird still gonna go cam after Chrissy
so his blown xr8 is only doing a 13.2 et ??
im pretty sure but it was his first ever run and he got heaps of wheel spin its a ba ute just so use no
Quad cam boss motors sound awesome,thankyou for the entertainment....
Been through this.. the 6 speed is a $2000 extra. Spend that on the VE and it will still win.
The new FORD V8 will wipe the VE's lineup though.
The old BOSS motor was a truck motor in essence reslapped to fit into a sedan.Think of the new HO as a refined pure passenger car version.
The BA's have a very tall first gear and coupled with the less than desired engine setup and quad cam the powerband is narrower than the pushrod V8 as a rule of similar size/technology.With diff gears and a convertor it brings(BA)(as BF run 6 speed and different box/diff gearing)back to the field.A lack of compression across the board puts any real gains from cam changes with these two models also,higher comp pistons ect are needed.The HO has all these areas covered though.
Heres this to wet your tastebuds.Yanks version of what we have.Notice the lack of ci on the Ford but doesnt seem to hamper it at all lol.IT IS BAD ASS!!!!!!
YouTube - 2011 Mustang 5.0L vs Camaro 6.2L Drag Races Like I said,Fords now have something for you pushrod lovers to worry about.They will be prowling the streets near you soon.
LOL, the amount of fail that went into that post... TRUMPED yourself
xr6 with 5 speed 390nm can't beat the Sv6 with 350nm. At best it's pretty much equal with a $2000 option.
Talk about fail, lolllll
Hey,A WINS A WIN!
Stalking me now...
Karlos, I'm taken so don't even ask.
Naww,Im humbled...just "clarifying" the grey areas so to speak.

Jumping to conclusions.....Not like yourself.
Geez I love being a FOLDEN man lol.
have any same day/condition xr6's vs sv6's? No didn't think so.
LOL for $2000 the difference is only 0.1?? Faillllll ahaha and I don't see a timeslip.. bigger fail.
Jumping to conclusions? You stalk my profile then ask if I'm young? ahahaha CREEP.
