Thanks for the link but the 5.0L EFI is a windsor motor which are slightly different to the cleveland and I've been told don't have the same problem with the heater pipes they just clear ( I hope ). I'll be happy to post some photo's when I'm done.

Re: 90 xf ute conversion

you should be able to slot the 5litre in with XR-XY windsor mounts mate...
the block is physically the same shape.

Re: 90 xf ute conversion

Aw the EFI swap.. I am doing the same on a 90 Bronco II. I used shorty Headers.. You might have to beat the tunnel back just a little. the Heater AC box does need trimming. just a little . they say the 83 Mustang convert. motor mounts will work fine on your Xploder...

90 Bronco II Engine Swap.. 5.0 pictures from trucks photos on webshots

he's got an australian ford falcon ute (pickup) not an explorer.....

these never came with a V8, but do have the same rails and very similar front suspension to the early girl falcons
(XR - XY/XA-XC/XD-XF)
they were the last to use this front end, as the front end was completley redesigned with the next series (EA through EL Falcon)

so thats why i mentioned that the efi windsor should drop straight in with XR-XY windsor mounts.....

anyway, what trans are you using? if you use a C series 3 speed auto, use the old transmount - the holes should already be in the rails...
if you're using a 4 speed auto from the donor car the five point oh came from, you'll have to sourse an XG Falcon ute trans mount....


have fun with the conversion and please post some pics as progress moves along

Re: 90 xf ute conversion

Very intrested in this conversion your doing as i'm considering doing the same but with a xf panelvan and maybe using an older windsor running cleveland heads and lpg.Have been toying with the idea for ages as the 250 may need some work anyhow to bring it up to scaratch,will be waiting anxciously to see how you go with it all!Hopefully there won't be too many dramas for you.
