The first series (BA) got 220kw & 470nm, mark 2 BA and BF got 230kw & 500nm and they raised the rev limit from 5250 up to 5500 on series 2 BA.
Diff ratio was 3.23 i think. Grab a motor magazine and look up the back it should have everything u need.

What mods do you have done to your EA.

You know, just in case you ever have to face one at the "drags" so you can see if you will beat him to the "quarter mile" :wink:

Just checked out the back of wheels mag and found out all i need but according to wheels they only come out with a 6spd auto! is this correct (no man option) or is wheels leaving out info

oh and still after 1/4 mile info thanks.

0-100 in 7.08
0-400 in 14.99

As tested by Motor, BA XT V8 with manual tranny.

As you can see, the quarter mile time isn't toooooo flash, a mildly modded manual XR6 should better that???

Let us know how you go either way.

a mildly modded xr6 may beat it but the money you spend mildly modding the xr6 could also be spent mildly modding the v8. i was looking around for a little while for xt v8's but not many around.

There are several ex police BA MkII V8 XT's for sale in sydney at the moment. Last one i saw was going for 22k, but that was about 6 months ago.

Just a little bit off topic guys, but you guys in Oz have it sweet, We in NZ cant buy an XT or Futura V8, The cheapest V8 we can get into is a Fairmont V8. Or an XLS V8 Ute. Id love to see an XT V8. :wink:

the good lads at aussie car have put thier BA V8 manual into the mid-low 13's with basic mods, ie CAI LSD EXHAUST etc.

The 3V engine is a nice piece of work..

Here in SA, there are soo many BA XT V8's and they are all icemint duco, which isn't quite right for me, saving grace beign there are quite a few monts around tho,

as far as weight im guessing what 50kg odd heavier than the six ???

Aussie cars xt is fast but it was a big spend to get it there because of there low bang for your buck mentality which is because of preserving new car warranty!

spend the same money theh did and could slap a blower and exhaust on with change

Nice car but just a show pony for the parts they stock and install.

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..

No such thing as a Futura V8 over here, either.
