  1. Hey all, I trying to figure out what the perfect backspacing is to fit the guards nicely on an xf would 15x8.5 with 5" backspace not be enough. My dad to think 15x9 with 5" backspace isnt enough. I am looking at street pro 2 wheels but they only come in 3.5 and 5 inch backspacing on 15x8.5 wheels Would 8.5 be too much for the front and should I get 15x7s?
  2. sad times are upon us
  3. does the actual size of the t5 box change requiring a different driveshaft to suit eg. xf,ed,el? Or must you only change to suit your diff. I know dean has already told me to get the driveshaft to suit the LSD im putting in which I recently got for free. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. does anyone know if 6cyl xe t5 gearbox mounts/crossmember/pedal box will go straight into the xf? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. does anyone know if I could use an au t5 and driveshaft? What about BA Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. yes I can, the only place the bar is connected is where its welded to the brackets.
  9. Hi all, I have a 3 spd auto carbi xf. I have a LSD disc brake diff out of an e series I think that I want to put into my car. I know I need to change the master cylinder. Anything else? I think my dad said I might need to change hand brake cable. I also want to t5 swap it. For that I will need a crossmember and gearbox mounts which I can get from Castlemaine Rod Shop or an XG or XH. A manual pedal box which I have at my local wreckers waiting to be picked up. Will I need a bellhousing out of a t5 XG? And then later on this year I want to put an AU intech non VCT motor in. I can do the job I just need to find all the info and I've been reading up the past month and am struggling a little bit. If anyone has any info or can post links to threads that they know might have info it would be greatly appreciated. It dont want to pay someone to put it in id rather attempt it and learn something from it. So far I know I will need XG engine mounts, I will most likely go standalone ECU or chip the au ecu to bypass smartlock. Im going to need an xg bellhousing to adapt the t5 to the au motor in the future. XG swaybar doesnt clear the au sump so im gonna have to go custom I think. Any more info or links is greatly appreciated. Would not even think of doing stuff like this without this forum.
  10. hey all, I own an xf and am looking to swap a later model 4.0 into it but I just do not have time, do you guys have any recommendations of performance workshops in NSW as it will be going turbo. Preferably closest to riverstone. cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Is it legal to remove the heavy bar in the xf rear bumper so i can piss off the tow bar? Image attached Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. anyone fitted xe tail lights on an xf? Is it a straight swap? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. just smashed one of my tail lights on a bent letterbox. Never felt so much pain.☹️ No body damage luckily. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. oh these looks so good shame they wont fit the front. Im gonna raise the rear a bit and get lower profile tires. Not sure what im gonna do to the front yet. Might have to get some flares Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
