Pretty sure they were 175kw at the flywheel and 395nm of torque

not sure if it changed as the series incremented in the forte model

All non-XR AU V8's were 175kw. They had GT40p heads.

The only difference between the non-XR 175kw, and the Series 1 XR8 185kw were headers/exhaust (and possibly ECU calibration??).
