I know hes an idiot thats the funniest thing about it. He actully belives that this s**t is for real LOL. The only way to prove it really is to get him to bring the dyno papers. Ne one can say thier car got 140rwkw on the dyno, but that doesnt mean s**t unless you have proof. :roll:

Meh, dyno numbers are nice but mean bugger all anyhow. Its 1/4 times and MPH that really sort the men from the boys.
I had 144rwkw, it was questioned by quite a few. That is until I ran a 15.0 @ 93mph, then it was accepted.

Now I have 150rwkw and I want my 14 second ticket DAMMIT!!

Tell him to show you a time slip, if he hasnt got one, tell him all his crap means nothing.

You would have to spend a bit on an EB to get 140rwkw. Certainky not a stocker with a pod filter!!!

270kmh is just BS.. Think about it at those speeds the wind resistance is huge and going up by the cube. 164fwkw might get you to 220kmh with the right gearing but you need 300fwkw to get to 270kmh this side of a cliff.

Just push it out of the space shuttle. That will do it

I have an EB XR6, and it does 12 seconds, with 197.123 RWKW, my mods are a pod filter, red stickers down the side, and a hole in the muffler.

Im not a dreamer, its true, just my dog ate my dyno papers, and my time slips, just went missing the other day. I think my cat shat on them.. pitty that was my 11.6 run aswell....




What a wanker

I was hassling him all day, asking him to get his dyno papers, hell i even said i would drive him down in my car to get them LOL.

And then.. he just gave in and said it never got dyno'd in the first place!!! EEERRRR as if i belived him ne way i just wanted him to admit he was FOS. :roll:

Ahh it was a fun day for me lol :P

Sorry for all the s**t that was writen but this is something that needs to be told to others just for the pure fact thats it was all lies. :roll:

well my ebxr6 has never been on a dyno but its faster than the au fairmont and it has better top end speed than me old mans BA. the BA is s**t loads quicker off the mark. ive seen my speedo in the xr go over the 200 and come back around to near the 0 so i wave my bottom at you all :lol:

au bottom end is same as ef/el head was different with smaller valve stems and tapered valve springs to allow it to rev a bit more and allow flow better in bowls due to smaller stems

hmmm, you could be right, but Im pretty sure someone was saying something about getting an AU bottom end, cos it was stronger? maybe they meant that it was stronger since its done less K's...oh well

Cheers

I wonder why!... Theres a fair weight advantage in your favour, AU's are fairly heavy cars and being a fairmont usually adds a bit more weight than most stock models. Comparing that to an EB 6 isnt really a good comparison. :roll:

But yeah not having a go at you but that would be one reason why its quicker. :wink:

The new 190 kw commy is really quick.......


bullshet it is. not when its got 1721kgs to lug around and only 340 nm to do it with. what planet are you from man? oooh its got 195kw, big woop its all revs. An FG falcon on premium will top 200+ and have around 400 odd nm of torque, so its ahead before the shetpile 3.6ltr motor even works its way to its revvy peak.

also the ford 6 uses less fuel by a full liter/100ks ADR standard.

also to adress the posts about AU's being heavier than an E series, the AU reduced weight over the EL by around 34kgs. Common misconception that they are heavier.

They had the same quoted power outputs as the engines in ef-el, but they were detuned a lot for economy. a custom flash tune on a stock AU can see 10kw at the wheels according to brendan mock.

EDs got 145kw for some strange reason while the EB's had 148. dont ask why, no one that I know of knows.

all non vct xr6's got 164kw, except the eb2 and ED, which got 161kw.

No stock eb Xr6 would crack 270, not even an unlimited manual, it just wouldnt have the power to turn the ratio at that speed. maybe 250 given a few k's of straight road, but by then the aero would be up the duff and she would be floating all over the shop.

I think your heads up your bottom :roll: as their is no way for the speedo physically to go around that far!
A) the needle hits the bottom of the dash.
B) the speedo its self has a limit on how far around it can go (ive had mine apart so i know)
Your as bad as the guy with the 140rwkw stork xr :lol:
and ive had my eb flat out and its about 230km/h with the needle at the bottom of the dash. and theirs some real scary floating going on.
when you say better top end speed than your dads Ba whats that like 120KM/H? i find it hard to believe that your "old man" would race you to top speed (if he did he's a knob) and i also find it hard to beleive you beat a BA at top speed which is more airodynamic, has more power, revs better, will use its torque more effectivly, the only draw back it does have is it extra weight. But with all the s**t you carry around i think it would be pretty even.
