Can anyone confirm or deny that the 185kw version of the EL XR8 has roller rockers?

Just reading the http://www.fpv.com.au/theheritage/falco ... 185kw.aspx link and it says in the engine specifications that it does.

Quote:
Engine
Windsor 5-litre V8, OHV, electronic multi-point fuel injection, 9.00:1 compression, roller rockers, EEC V engine management system, larger throttle body, Explorer inlet manifolds, electronic ignition, extractors, 185kW @4500rpm, 402Nm @ 4000rpm (DIN)



I know the site is not particularly known for knowing about its own cars so can anyone here tell me if roller rockers were used on the 185kw EL XR8 engine? I know they had the E7 heads but I am curious.

Cheers

Yep, the 220kw XR8 engine had the Yella Terra ST2027 (1.72:1, non-adj) roller rockers.

The 200kw XR8 engine had the Crane/FMS 1.6:1 non-adj roller rockers.
