Re: V8 time
Nope, it was an XF motor, along with the gearbox and diff in the car (not that silly - read the signature) - it came with the car after a guy swapped the non original V8 driveline out into his XF ute, and replaced it with the crap. Agreed the car was originally a six cylinder, but that has long gone. As for the gearbox, this is the heavy duty style 5 speed with needle rollers and steel sandwich plate(an R154 not a W58), so it will hold up better than the cheaper option most guys take, and at the end of the day, it about how you treat it as to it's lifespan - so I'll find out one way or the other - having said that, I've never blown a motor, box or diff.
