Interceptor, no offense but what sort of s**t v8 gets left behind by an auto XF ?!

I think you will find that the XF is in fact an ZL Fairlane which had the EFI engine rather then a pissy carby I6. Although the tranny was an Borg Warner 45 there is nothing special about the box as I used to have an XF wagon with auto & the performance was quite s**t at the low end of the range.

Now the VL Commonwhore that had good low end performance to which Ford finally caught up with in the EA III with MPFI engines & electronic trannies & lock up torque converters (BTR 85)...

My EA did 80 @ 5000rpm, my EL 90 @ 5500rpm and my BA 90 @ 5800rpm. I think a Falcon shouldn't go anywhere near redline though, not even the BA. The old SOHC engines sounded like it would die much past 4000.

This may be a little off topic, since we're talking about road cars. But my dragster tops out at 174.3kph (108.3mph) @ 6600rpm in second gear as measured by the timing gear at the Kwinana motorplex.

I don't know what it does in first gear as the dragster doesn't have a speedo and of course they only measure speed at half track and at the finish line.
