In 2 months there will be nowhere near us selling lrp, and we need it my dad's xe. I was wondering what to use as a substitue, like unleaded additives etc?
I thought that if you changed your engine, you need to upgrage to the emissions (ie cat converter) that the engine came out with. But if you use the XE bottom end, then the head off a ULP XF - then no cat required. It would be the same if you converted the XE head to ULP, not cat required.xdc351 said:Also remember unleaded engines require a catalytic converter to be installed.
The car's got 450k on the clock, and is only going to be registered for another 6months, so spending 250 bucks on a head i don't think is really justifyible for a $400 car. Thanks for the idea though. Anybody know about products like valvemaster? Saw an add in RACQ road ahead, but I don't know the costs, and 1 treatment per 20L seems a hassle when you fill it up.xdc351 said:Get an unleaded head from an XF.
Wouldn't cost much and you can still use the same intake/exhaust manifolds. If you do the work your self it would only cost $250 or so including all new stem seals, gaskets, etc.

Have a look closely at the measurements required... I used one, and it was supposed to treat up to 40 litres... If your tank is 60 litres, you need 1.5 treatments for the fuel, and that starts to add up....Pete84 said:All ya gotta do is squirt it in the tank, 1 syringe full to a tank - too easy.
