I was driving today in my stock Leaded XF 4spd manual and just for fun i'd thought i'd give it some at the lights. Not racing anyone only grandmas beside me.
Anyways i floored it got a little bit of wheelspin went to 40 in first quiked changed to second and i look in my mirror to see a VL wagon with an old lady driver catching up to me at an alarming rate. I revved out second and changed to third she caught up and flew past me without trouble. I was Mortified
We pulled up at the next set of lights and she had electronic injection written on her front quarter panel so i think this means its just a six.
Is their something wrong with my car. She didn't just creep past me, she flew past.
Is it worthwhile converting to EFI if i find a donor car. I'd need to swap cylinder heads over too wouldn't i for the injectors. What else could i do. Would converting be easy or too difficult. Can anyone give me a basic guide to the conversion.
Should i bother converting it or do something else?If so what should i do? I think my engine is pretty old the odometer doesnt work and it says around 325000. Im not sure if its leaded or unleaded but the Engine code says leaded but the previous owner ran it on unleaded. Would running it on leaded slow it down if it was unleaded?? It doesnt have a Cat. It may be a new reco engine. Im unsure of the history of the car but i did buy it for $700.
