they were guesses. ba's are about half a second quicker on both accounts. ef xr8 was around high 15 so figured ghia wouldn't be far behind.

The only difference in the go department with EF XR8s vs other EF v8s was the headers, engine was exactly the same. 170kW for the XR, 165kW for the rest. Add the extra weight of the ghia goodies and thats the real reason it'd be a bit slower.
