AU engine into XF

Can it be done? A friend of mine might be considering doing this to his S Pac sedan soon, either AU or ED. I would assume the ED would fit, seeing that was basically what was in the XG. But we would prefer to stick with the AU engine, if possible.

Re: AU engine into XF

Yes it can be done, well, in a XE anyway. There's a Red XE ESP with a turbo 4.0Ltr AU Engine running straight LPG doing 10.4 quater mile times. I think his name is Jason Ghiller, and I think he works for/at Gas Research in Dandenong, Vic.

Re: AU engine into XF

Can be done... but at great expense and time. And yeah, Jason's XE is a fine example of an AU powered XF... only one I know of.

As for fitting an EA-ED engine in an XF, you would have to grab the 4.0l engine from an XG and take the engine mounts and gearbox with you. as the 4.0l engines had a different bell housing and mounts to the 4.1l engine's.
