6 cyl EB-ED inlet manifold.......can it fit on a XF 6 cyl?

This is an idea im toying around with at the moment for my turbo motor........wondering if a EB-ED inlet will fit to the XF? The only problem i see is that the power steering reservoir is gonna be in the way & i'll have to either get a throttle cable made or use the EB-ED one.......the other advantage to run this inlet is with a turbo motor shorter the pipe the better the HP.

Also say if i get canaried will i still have to put the standard inlet on or will it pass a RWC with the EB-ED inlet?

Any help with this would be great.

ummm.....no they dont.

I have seen an EF manifold that someone took to a welder, and got them to weld the XF lower manifold to the EF manifold so that it would fit.

I dont know if the EA manifold will fit, ubt I would suggest it has the same bolt pattern as the EF/L manifold as they are both OHC.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Would an EA one fit as well? This would be the cheapest to get from a wreckers i imagine.
Would it be possible to put this on a carby XF motor?
IF the the manifold from an EA was fitted what else would it need? Would it need the computer, Fuel lines/pump, regulator?
Would it be hard to fit? Would it be possible to run this manifold with say an aftermarket computer like microtech etc?

The more info the better please.

Thanks
Dan

I've never seen this done so tend to agree with MADXF.

For some ideas try looking around this guys album;
http://home.tower.net.au/~grin132/albums/ford250/

Or come over and ask on this I6 dedicated forum,
http://fordsix.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=3
which is US based but has an Aussie section with some very informed guys online.

For an interesting twist also see Aussie X-flow sixes sent to the States and installed in US classic Mustangs.

Here is another idea.
Would the EFI setup from an XE fit a Alloy head carby XF?
Is there any difference between the XE EFI and XF EFI other than the computer used to control everything??

Thanks
Dan

The XF and fairlanes were available with multipoint injection, Im sure they would be a better donor for your XF

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

They probably would but the carb version head is not compatible with the EFI gear on the injected falcons.
I dont want to scrap my head just yet ive spent too much on it.
Thanks
