Re: xf engine mods

id drop in a turbo'd stock bottom end AU 6 controlled by an aftermarket ecu, shift kitted/strengthend 4 speed and a tightened 4 pinion 3.23 LSD

or you could stick with the XF motor and stengthen the bottom end and use a c4 box.
use standard XF intake manifold is more than capable of huge power, but would be made a bit better with slight porting.

id spend some on the suspension, put some big brakes on and a good set of mags/tyres. traction will be your main problem....
