xr4ti Yeah, new member. Doubt anyone even looks at this car anymore. I own one, an '89, and thought I'd get a few things straight about them: 1)The car is just a Ford Sierra XR4i except for a different engine. It has a 2.3L with a Garett T3 turbo. 2)The car was built in Germany, the engine in Brazil. 3)Unless modified, it will in NO WAY beat a 5.0L, my dad has one and could smoke me all day. 4)I hear it's really easy to get 500-600hp out of these motors, so watch out when you end up next to one at a stoplight, unless you're one of the million people on this site who own a McLaren F-1 or a 911 Turbo or a 360 Modena. Anyway, good hunting!
