..and I just noticed on Ford's website if you option an XT with the V8 you can't get an LSD with it.. wtf?



What's the difference between a Holden and a sheep? It's less embarrasing getting out of the back of a sheep..

For some reason the standard V8 in the BA/BF range is called the Barra 220 or 230 (Barra same as what they call the I6), not a called a Boss like the performance V8's found in the XR8 and GT range... Queer...



Heaps of performance EF/L parts for sale, including supercharged VCT motor!

the point of the car to me seemed to be more so about being pioneers in development to obtaining the most out of the 3v engine, and proving that it's a very good alternative to the dime a dozen XR & FPV models, so anything that is the first in its feild will cost a few bucks to get it right. And you'd now never have to spend the time and money they did, cos its already been done, now you just do as they have done..

What im sayin is they havent done anything special all they've done is used all the (expensive) goodies that are on the market and slapped it all onto there xt. Most people will just put a few of there available products on2 there cars all they did was put all there v8 range stock on2 1 car hence big money, and it is expensive s**t coz none of the performance parts they stock have been designed, made, researched or thought of by them, they just stock and install performance goodies from other companys, basically there the middle man.



EB XR6 project almost complete!

Soon on road with pics!
