Question xf efi

did all xf's have efi from 1987 ?
the thing is, i see alot of xf's and they don't have the efi badge on them, was efi not a popular choice back in the day for some reason ?

Re: xf efi

Only the XF Fairmont Ghia's and up had MPEFI (EECIV) - the rest were carb. The first EA was late 88 still with a 3-spd trans.

Re: xf efi

The EFI motor in the XF's sucked. I've got an 87 XF and it's the carby model.

The EA's werer the start of the EFI for Ford.

Re: xf efi

There were XF EFI's right thru the years of them building them, optional on S-paks and opional on fairmont ghias. jun 86 is when they changed to unleaded and 87 is when the carby models got Electronic Spark Control.

The EFI XF's are pretty good if you only want to make small changes, eg: extractors, exhaust and a small cam, anything else will stuff up the ECU's control.

Having said that, mine was dual fuel, but now I ripped off the EFI stuff to get rid of the shit airbox, I used an early model XF carby distributor in place of the TFI one.

You're a hard man- they're not that bad - at least my '87 Ghia isn't. If you want to do things to it like cam & extractor - yeah - a carb is a much better option - but the XF EFI is a fairly simple setup. But there aren't many inputs for the computer to control mixture & spark advance so they're a pretty basic EFI setup.

The only real design flaw is the ISCV (which is more just a stupid idea to basically a non-event problem of erratic idle speed which the ISCV is generally more a contributor not a saviour) and the fact the crankcase has to be airtight to prevent crap idling too - so in general - crap idling. It's a great car to tow the boat.
