XD Project (New Motor)

Gday guys,
My XD is getting closer to finally being able to get on the road.
Diff, auto complete. Motor 99% complete.
Now just need to upgrade my fuel system, new transmission lines, and handbrake cables.
Got a couple of photos of the motor just wondering whether someone could upload them for me... not too sure how to do this??
Thanks

Re: XD Project (New Motor)

That engines identical to xbwgn's prior engine. You'll notice it's got a fair amount of torque in the mid range.

If I had the webspace. I'd host them for you. If you click on "garage" and "pics". It should tell you or prompt you to upload.

XB Fairmont (street car) 11.07@123.02mph.

Re: XD Project (New Motor)

I prefer th to use the Ford Forums Gallery to upload pics. They provide plenty of web space right here for you to use.

Click on the "Gallery" link to the top right of screen under "Link Partners". Log on there and away you go.

That's alot of convertor for a stick of that size.It should punch out of the hole nicely with your gear & convertor combo.
