xf with xg running gear

Can somebody tell me what i would EXACTLY need to do, to put a 4.0i motor into the XF. I assume I would need the XG crossmember and all related engine mounts etc.

Does anyone have a clue of how much this crossmember would be, and would it just "bolt" into the front of my xf?

I'd also need the efi fuel pump, so could i use the tank and pump out of an XF efi?

I was originally planning to buy an XG wrecking, but that has proven to be an absolute mission to find one.

Thanks for any/all your input

Mate, just buy an XG!

Oh look HERE'S ONE for sale.

But if you'd rather do it yourself from what I understand;
  • Under engine crossmember is the same (they are welded in not bolt in) just use XG engine mounts;
  • The front structure that supports the radiator etc is different to suit the E-series radiators but something could probably be made to work.
  • There is also sheetmetal alterations to suit the factory airbox etc but if you don't plan on using that you should be able to fabricate something.
  • Then of course you will need to sort out all the wiring/plumbing issues common to any engine swap.

a 4.0 makes more power, therefore it must dissipate more energy in the form of heat. You'll be right if you get a V8 radiator to suit or something like that. Or, you could get away with using the crossflow radiator if you dont plan on hammering it all the time..
