Bloody Holden. Put a V6 into the Commodore in 1988 and now all in-line sixes are a called bloody V6!

Drives me nuts.

Good question thought overdose. It should fit, use Xg-Xh longreach engine mounts and an angle grinder.

My old man just put a AU motor in his XG ute.

A lot of frigging around. The AU motor doesn't have a fan. Has thermos. No bloody room behind the radiator for the thermos.

Try a older motor, like a EF-EL. Something that does not have thermos.

Thermos? Is that a technical term for electric fans?

But yeah, my EL I6 has electric fans, and so do EFs.

The last mechanical fan i saw was on my dad's XF EFI I6. Maybe EAs have mechanical fans, but i doubt there is much technology improvement there...

Re: AU/BA v6 conversion

Mate ive thought of doing it in my XF (lol urrm i have but that needs to be re worded )

I have thought about putting an AU or earlier into my XF but in reality you may as well just buy an EF or EB and you get the added benefit of a newer car etc....it could be done....V8 could also be an option but then again a 302w outta a e series will set you back like 5 grand.

There is some power in those XFs mate... just toy around with it and they are also v light as well (like 1330kgs)
