Re: XF Engine redline

I wouldn't be revving it much more than 3800rpm, is the engine stock? eg. stock cams and head? If so you'd be getting peak power about 3600 or so and would be pointless revving over 3800rpm.

Re: XF Engine redline

unless you have a very good mixer the LPg would be roughly 500rpm lower than fuel seeming as it is bottlenecked by the webber..
