is that because the ute is lighter on the rear wheels than a sedan but we check both the weights of the cars and they were the same?

XG is the EF motor. Maybe different diff and gear ratios, i'm sure top speed of the EL would be greater but the ute would get there quicker?!? Just a guess.. I really have no idea! lol :) Anyway would be interested to know myself.. My little bro just got an XG ute...

Like Dans said.. :wink:

XG's had an ED motor.

My XG was a lot slower that my old EF.

Yes. I had one until last Friday. XG is EB/ED. XH is EF/EL.

Early XH's had the EB style intake manifold too.

Thanks Dansedgli. I had a bit of a heated discussion with my little brothers old man before he got the XG about the motor... You have just confirmed me as being right!!! :D

yeah the ute is difinitly stock as a rock and EL XR6 has been rebuilt with a wade 1673 cam in it. its also only running a stock futura ECU in it due to mine being faulty. maybe if that makes a difference or not?

wow there should be no match at all you should be car lengths in front of a stock XG ute then. I think there must be something seriously wrong with your car.

It shouldn't matter, a Futura ECU will learn a 1673 just fine, do you have an EL XR6 fuel system though? if so your car would be running very rich with the Futura ECU.
