    Megasquirt into XF EFI

    Good modification. What did the mega squirt set you back? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. There is a decent article by Hotrod Magazine (US) on this modification and it all looks fairly simple. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. What is the going rate for the Quickfuel blown through? Quickfuel is also Holley, all interchangeable parts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If your radiator is clean and not blocked then I wouldn’t spend more money on another radiator until I’d finished investigating the bypass and thermostat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I should have added that a boosted crossy would easy handle the 650 blow through. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. 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

    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

    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

    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

    What’s the condition of the water pump? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I can’t offer any advice than what has been said, however I had an alloy radiator in my XD when I first got it and the temps were all over place and that was in NZ where air temps were in the high teens low twenties. I got some advice from an old radiator guy and he said I needed a copper/brass original style, so I ended up with a recondition XF radiator that was for a tow pack or factory air conditioning (100mm wider than std XD)... Never had an over heating issue at all, I don’t run a shroud and have a 16 single thermo fan. I drive the XD in 40 plus degree temps and it’s mint. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    XR-XF Falcon Coil Over Conversion kit

    There isn’t much to the RRS steering kit to be honest, not sure where the expense comes from. Maybe CRS will do a kit one day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    XR-XF Falcon Coil Over Conversion kit

    I would like a kit like this, the RRS kits are very expensive. I made an enquiry about the manual rack and pinion steering and was shocked at the $2700 plus postage, maybe I was a little naive thinking it would be more around $1500. I’d be interested in seeing this coilover kit used and what the thoughts are. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Single rail issues

    I will look at taking the box out over the next few weeks to repair the leak at the front. I’ll have a good look inside and see what’s what. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
