Re: XF engine rebuild

Manual or Auto gearbox behind your motor, when I got mine rebuilt I had an auto XF, i got a cam to give more power down low as I always felt it was missing something in that area.

Re: XF engine rebuild

its a 4 speed manual with 2.77 diff but i think i will change the ratio in the diff as well. How much was the cam and how much did it improve the performance

Re: XF engine rebuild

Are you looking at a full rebuild or just something for more performance?
Cams are usually around $250-300.

Re: XF engine rebuild

If your doing the work yourself you will be okay but if not i dont see you getting much done for $1200
RPM engines sell stock reco's for 1900 and mild ones for 2200 not fitted.
The EFI system apparently doesnt handle extensive mods either. You will need an aftermarket computer to deal with the changes.
If your doing the work yourself you can buy an ACL race series rebuild kit for around $600, you get flat top pistons and I think a better cam with it.
