XH motor

Stupid question of the day time: What is an XH motor? Is it the same as the EB2/ED or is it an EF/L just without the dual-length manifold?

Also does the EB2/ED run EEC4 and the EF/L EEC5, or are they both EEC5?

Thanks

Re: XH motor

The XH motor is an EBII/ED 4.0L.

EA-ED run EECIV and EF-AU run EECV.

Re: XH motor

The XH XR6's had ED motors with an EF/L top end and intake.

Re: XH motor

Actually, my series 1 XH motor is labeled as an EF engine. In saying that it has an EF 12 couter-weight crank(ED has 8), a block with a knock sensor and an EF/EL timing cover with the serpentine single belt arrangment. It runs EEC-V (most similar to an EL) but with the ED intake manifold, ED rocker cover, and ED air box.

XH XR6's on the other hand, either series 1 or 2 both ran the BBM yet retained the distributor.

So to answer your question, XH engines IMO are best described as an EL motor without the BBM. Everything else is the same.

Re: XH motor

Sorry! I got mixed up there! I was thinking of the XG.

The XH runs the EF/EL motor with ED intake and as said, the XR6's got the BBM.

Re: XH motor

Thanks guys, EAII_Fairmont you had me worried there for a bit! I'm glad it's the EF/L motor, makes sense since they were using them at the same time -although having said that the overrun of XF utes used the old 4.1 for a fair while alongside the 3.9s.

I suppose the only real advantage is it should make a BBM conversion easier should I feel the need. Even if a new ECU is needed the wiring would be easier.

Re: XH motor

Some late Xh's even have the AU motor in it with the old intake

Re: XH motor

Same goes for the last of the ED motors, mine is an EF block and head running an ED intake manifold and rocker cover.
