Re: 302 in a xf

heard of conversions done for around $2.5k - do a search there's plenty of them getting around the forums...or at least there was.

Re: 302 in a xf

The biggest problem you will discover is the left cylinder head will foul the interior heater pipes.

XE heater box will be needed for the conversion,

Cheapest way is to source a cheap V8 XD/E and swap parts.
