  1. I should have added that a boosted crossy would easy handle the 650 blow through. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Sounds like pretty good combo to me and basically my plan for my XF Ghia but with EFI and EL ecu... I have a Quickfuel 450 d/p that I did have on my 302w but I couldn’t get it 100%, it would be pig rich or lean as on my AFR (best thing I’ve ever purchased) gauge. Changed all sort of bits and gave up. Brought a new Quickfuel 650 d/p Brawler without choke horn and it was nearly perfect out of the box, changed jets down on front and rear by two numbers and it’s near perfect. I thought a 650 would be too big for the little 302w. The Quickfuel blow through 650s have a good rep. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The shift should be good with the new Hurst shifter. It looks well built. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I looked at the renegate shifter but too much movement for my liking and you will have to cut the floor hump a bit to get it in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Original XD

    I like it just the way it is and would be proud to have such a great looking original XD. It’s a piece of Australian motoring history. Keep it as is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The completely off topic thread

    I located this gem just outside of Alice Springs on my travels today. Word in the street from a person in the area was that it has been there since the mid 90s. Great thing about Alice is the dry preserving climate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    250 Crossflow build

    I’ve got all the bits to do a Crossflow turbo build for my XF Ghia, time and enthusiasm are lacking... However my goal has never been about max dyno numbers, more around how it goes and feels. My build is exactly what all the above are giving advice on, fresh bottom end, MLS head gasket, small cam and valve springs. ECU is an EL with XG harness with a J3 chip. It will toast the tyres all day long, probably make 300 and something HP...not bothered really. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Normally reverse is left and down on a toploader, but with the Hurst shifter it ends up same as a single rail. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Toploader arrived today, very exciting. Also got a new gear knob as I wanted a Hurst white one. Hopefully my trans jack arrives and I can start the conversion this weekend. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Just reading about DC in the latest Street Machine. Car has to be street registered and go better than a 12.99 Maybe 2020 I can get there, I’m sure a squirt of NOS I’d be in under 12.99. EDIT... This is for drag challenge weekend in May. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    351 compression

    I had a 351c with a 30 over bore built a long time ago that ran 2V CC heads, from memory the comp was pretty much bang on 11:1. Cam was around the 520-530 odd lift and 220-224 duration Crower. I sold it off before it was fitted to the car, the engine builders had done a few to the same spec and they ran good...the person who bought it from me never complained.

    My post should have said they probably wouldn’t go well on a burnout pad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Temperature

    If you get a new radiator I’d go for the XF copper and brass, the wider one designed for air conditioning/tow pack. I have one with my V8 XD and one in the XF Ghia, I live in Alice Springs where I can drive in 40 plus degrees without any issue. The XF still has the belt fan and even with air conditioning on it will sit and idle all day long without an issue. My just 2 cents. They probably would go that great on a burnout pad but my cars will never see that anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
