Question Winsor Prices?

Hi I am looking at repowering an XE Falcon ute with a fuel injected winsor motor. I would like to know a reasonable price for an engine and gearbox with all electrics for a conversion. Ive looked at a couple, an NC engine for $4000 with supposedly 110000 kms and a EF XR8 engine for $3500( unknown ks). The other thing I would like to know is if I plan on using this for heavy towing will the auto gearbox handle it or am I better off buying an engine and using an american AOD box, the one with out the electronic overdrive? What is the difference with an EF XR8 engine over a standard EF V8? Has anyone else done this conversion?

Thanks Corey.

Re: Winsor Prices?

You can pick up complete engine/transmission packages anywhere from $3k to $5k depending on how many kms they have done. The EB-EL1 XR8 engines only have different computer programming compared with the standard V8's. The 4-speed auto should be fine for heavy towing, just fit the largest trans cooler possible and keep it well serviced.

There are a couple of 5L injected XF's around so it is possible. As far as I can recall, you need the engine mounts of an XD/XE V8 or an XG V8. Get an XG trans crossmember or modify the standard one if required. The rest is just really wiring, running piping etc.
