Re: custom resto XA
Best to buy another car and keep the XA as a Sunday car if you can't afford to drive it. It'd be a shame to destroy a muscle car with a lousy 6 cyl.
If you want your EFI? Put a late model V8 in. Fuel economy/power and everything in one foul swoop. The V8 cleveland mounts and V8 windsor mounts are identical. Get an engine that has at least 220kw @ the fly and your laughing. Stick a 3.00 diff in (although the 9" is prob already 3.00). Stock V8 diff's in late model cars are usuallly 3.08. Not all but most.
