  1. Big thanks to XELISTY for the C4 and bell housing for the crossflow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That's a good episode, makes some serious power. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Good work with the interior, I'd be keeping the XF seats if possible just adds to the great XF experience, I have a XF Ghia and love the factory interior, and the AC is mint. XFs get a bit of a bad rep on social media, but I love driving mine, the factory Crossy is pretty gutless but I don't have to rev it hard to get anywhere, however a going to retain it and add boost.

  4. Nice car, good to see you putting time and effort into it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. It was like a small sensor box that ran a line from the intake, and it served as a fuel cut for over boost and also operated the factory boost gauge, so once the exhaust was opened up the waste gate could control it, common problem on those, and yeah would just cut fuel, you could unplug it and that solved the problem and it would boost hard - probably only 10psi, but the gauge didn't work. So I made up a t piece with this little bleed valve. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I once had a Series 4 Rx7 (18 years ago) that had a boost cut, only discovered it when I fitted a 3 inch exhaust, it cut fuel once above 7psi, made a little valve thing that bled off pressure, back then didn't think about extra fuel to compensate for additional boost, went hard though.

  7. Good stuff, I still have the 2.77 LSD, so will be pretty tall but good for cruising, hopefully a higher stall will assist with the gearing for now. I bet in a corty it's a blast. I've read another couple of articles about using an EL ecu and J3 chip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks for the good info, I'm really aiming for a mild range motor very similar to Xelisty's, his is cranking 300rwhp just under 4000rpm, not sure of the boost level though. I'm thinking of starting at about 8 psi and going from there, it should double it's factory power on that boost level. I'm after a car that is fun to drive, can give you a bit of a fright and take to the track for some fun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Microtech still do a fuel only ecu, it's listed at about $895, I thought it would be easier to just get the fuel and ignition system to control the lot. Also need to start planning an engine rebuild as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. The dump pipe came out of an XE that was running this manifold and had a modded XR6 turbo with the five bolt flange, so I will just source the similar set up to keep it simple. Thanks for the link to Proboost. Yes I will be retaining the TFI dizzy and will look into a CDI unit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. The manifold has a T4 flange with a T3 adapter on it, and the dump pipe is 3 inch. With the Microtech I can retain the dizzy and it will control it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thought I put up a small build that I'm under taking on the XF Ghia, originally I wanted to keep it 100% original so that meant no LS or Barra swaps. So after reading through a number of turbo crossflow builds and write ups that is the direction I am taking. So to date I have the following parts: Crossflow turbo manifold - individual runner style. 3 inch dump pipe. External waste gate. 42lb injectors Walbro fuel pump 600mm x 300mm fmic Next to be purchased over the next two weeks. Turbo - not sure exactly which. Intercooler piping. Microtech LT10c ECU I have located a C4 and Crossy bellhousing which is located in Darwin - thanks to Xelisty. Any advise is greatly appreciated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I'm PM you about the bell housing. Cheers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My plans are to run a C4 also, crossflow C4 bell housings are rare, I have a mate in NZ that has 2 of them, freight would be expensive though. I have purchased a XD C4 shifter as one came up on Facebook, I have a steel EF shaft here as well, but will run the XF LSD for a bit, tall ratio and probably not overly strong but will do for now. Just got a set of 42lb injectors and will sort the pump later on. I'm not aiming for your HP level at this stage, will see how I go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Thanks for the info, you have inspired me to do my own crossflow turbo project. So far have purchased a crossflow turbo manifold with external wastegate, just looking at turbo options as we speak, going to run a microtech ecu, and similar fuel setup as yours. I wanted to keep the XF GHIA standard but a small upgrade won't hurt. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
