cool 4.0L injected motor in XM Coupe

Hi gang,

I'm currently looking/thinking about doing a restore on a XM Coupe. Its going to be a daily driver so I'm thinking of maybe dropping a 4.0L injected motor and 4 speed auto from a EB2-ED falcon instead of the usual Windsor due to fuel cost.

So my question is: Is it possible to fit the 4.0L in and whats involved, or would it be simpler to fit a non injected 4.1L out of a later built XF?

Aso if anyone out there has a XM with a V8, what kind of mileage can I expect from a V8.

I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks
Johnny

Re: 4.0L injected motor in XM Coupe

hey i was looking into this not so long ago, It is entirely possible hoever new mounts will have to be made and apparently the radiator support panel will need to be modified. You will have to watch intake manifold clearance as they bays are tight

I decided to go for the windsor...

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Re: 4.0L injected motor in XM Coupe

I was wondering, if you were exploring the XF option, what about an XG (basically a 4L setup in an XF)

Also, there are a couple of cars you could look at on the forums for an idea as to how much work required:
XR6 motor in a cortina
4Ltr in a XB ute (but running a carby setup, not injected).

EBXR,

Yeah, I've been the 4.1L XF unleaded(non-injected) motor is the easiest way to go sixpack wise, but gee, the 4.0L EB-ED XR6 motor would be a cracker. I'd say the electronic intergration would be a nightmare??

Re: 4.0L injected motor in XM Coupe

If you're really keen in going with this set up, this guy has an XC ute with a 250 EFI running on straight gas and supercharged....very nice ute.

Although he doesn't have the same car as yours, he may be able to give you some tips on the electronic side of things.

Re: 4.0L injected motor in XM Coupe

Ive fitted an Xe 4.1 alloy head motor and auto into an xm when the original 170 died.
Droped it into the engine bay using the 170 mounts bolted to the motor and modifing the gearbox crossmember.The bonnet closed fine with the factory air cleaner as it was a carb motor and im sure the efi manifold that goes over the top of the rocker cover is isnt any taller than that.
The only issue i had was there is no room for an engine fan so you must run an electric in front of the radiator .
