My new and improved 351 XF now with pics!
Well the day has come, I finally got to pick up my XF from the mechanics, in its new 351 and automatic form. It previously had a very worked 6 with a 4 speed manual.
I have to say im not all that impresssed with this apparantly 'worked' 5.8 litre but i think that is the auto and diffs fault is as smooth as anything i have driven, I barerly feel it change when flooring it. But it can arc up the rears a whole lot easier. I should put better diff gears in.
My exhaust is also only a single 2.5 incher, I might need something bigger. The mechanic said when the extractors were joined to the exhaust it lost a heap of grunt.
What size should i get?
It also received power steering and whoa! what a difference. The XF is so nice to drive now.
Photos will be put on later tonight cos for some reason my bluetooth connection has failed. Pics are on my phone.
