Keep in mind though that if you get an AU XR8 (1, 2 or 3) and plan to mod it anyway with a full exhaust & cam, you'll get a very similar end result in rwkw and $$$ cost.

Their power output only differs greatly when left stock.

So, AUIXR8 = 185kw. Add full exhaust & cam (let's say $3000). As EDXR8 said, around 240kw.

AUIIIXR8 = 220kw. Add full exhaust & cam (again, $3000 as same parts being fitted). New power = 240ish kw once again.


Even though this thread is super old.


You could be right mate (after all I have know to be wrong on the ODD occasion :)) But I can't see how this rings true....

AUI has same heads & intake manifold as the AUIII (and probably maf and tb).

AUIII has better cam profile, but don't know about roller rockers, exhaust system, but I'll assume that the AUI has a "soft" cam, normal rockers, and crappier extractors to begin with.

So, barring the roller rockers, if you're swapping all the other stuff anyway, you should get a very similar end output. This is all speculation though, I have the s**t V8 of all, the HO!

Sorry about the mining, I was *extremely* bored at uni!

If what I have said above is not correct, please correct me.
