hey everyone!

My pride and joy is a manual au xr8. (july 2000 not sure if 185kw or 200kw?)

so far it has pacemaker exctractors into a stainless 3 inch system with highflow cats, cold air induction and capa flash tuner. Atm its not on the road as i need a new clutch but will be back on the road next week. Would be great to meet some fellow ford enthusiast's and also get some tips on how to make her scare some hsv owners!

This is the best I can get for you Matey.Good looking Ute though. I don't think it is the 185kw though.

if it has the tickford hand built badge on drivers rocker cover its a 200kw, being a xr8 ute it should be 200kw tickford engine...

otherwise it will either be a 185kw..

Also, does anyone know if there's a place in Adelaide that can put new tunes into my flash tuner? Not happy with the one it came with, seems to struggle to idle at times!

I was under the impression that the non XR/Standard V8 utes were 175kw.

Just looked at the engine specifications in my AU Ute brochure printed in May 2001 and it states V8 OHV - Standard 175kw@4600. High Output 200kw@5000
