    What are this?

    Hi Emily, try the tapatalk app, it's free and you should be able to attach a photo easily with it. i vaguely remember something like you are describing, but has been ages since seeing one. what's wrong with it? they probably assist in warming up the engine or other pollution gizmo. @SPArKy_Dave may have an XF in his museum with that hose or @Jewing15 is about due to update us on Her XF wagon which is a similar model and quite orignal, may be able to show a photo for us

    Crossy build- am I on the right track

    like the gemini one?

    Crossy build- am I on the right track

    must be the same dude that wired My gemini, there's also a pic in there with the earth wire with 3 joins in it.. twist and tape.. on the CD player(didn't work) i wired it into My sedan, it's been perfect for 2yrs now

    LPG Tuners Victoria

    with all My crossflows, they all got the same economy on the highway or around town. 15L per 100km. all except the one i built up with worked head and gas cam.. that fucker used 20L per 100km, but was pretty quick... (for a crossflow) (although, i remember putting tyres from the "lexus falcon" that spun easily that i thought were crap.. on the XF with crossflow and it couldn't spin them lol.. goes to show what a stock 4 litre lexus V8 does different to crossflow) that worked engine owed more than $4000.. bloody hard to justify. unless you have a passion for making it the best it can be and can afford it

    302 Cleveland hzj landcruiser conversion

    if it doesn't overheat with the 302 it's not likely to be any worse with the 351.

    302 Cleveland hzj landcruiser conversion

    the 351 has heaps more torque low down compared to the 302. even a stock one. i'd personally look at converting to a 1UZ, if the clevo build is relatively stock the 1UZ goes probably better and won't get hot by comparison when bogging.. they use similar fuel to a clevo when thrashed though(had one in a falcon once, the lexus LS400 is 2 ton and goes ok also)

    Ecu advice

    yeah there's a bit of a rule that says change one lead at a time with these sorts of things. double check them, if they are correct you may have to look elsewhere are the leads clipped on the terminals and plugs properly? did you get decent brand replacement parts?

    scrap metal has paid me $15 for them, i'm thinking you are wrong. also My metal polisher said he'd he'd never do them again.. too heavy at 15kg. i'd be weighing yourself with wheel in hand to double check (can't see scrappers paying double for anything)

    Ecu advice

    firing order is correct, 153624 starting point, probably needed to check where number 1 was prior.. just to be sure no one put dissy back in a different spot previously

    Ecu advice

    i'd say it's probably not ECU related, if you'd bumped a wire or hose off in the engine bay is more likely.

    surprised by that, i thought they were as heavy as the ghia snowflake. which i'd scrapped at 15kg several times i thought i'd scrapped these also, but might have been FE Ltd ones also at 15kg ish

    or if you have limited budget, and it runs good enough as is.. leave it. dizzy mods will probably give it more bottom end torque, crossflows have enough as is.. depends on your budget. (i'd spend money elsewhere probably.. )

    T5 oil (710)

    i have never used it in a T5, but after putting it in My noisy gemini gearbox and it reduced the noise at least 30%(it's still stuffed) i'd imagine it would help any gearbox. i'm going to try it in My other gemini with stuffed 2nd synchro just to see if it helps there also. Nulon G70 .. check it's fine to use with transmission fluid, if not, there is one that is for that link is just to show, you can get it at repco, autobarn supacheap etc https://www.sparesbox.com.au/part/nulon-manual-gearbox-and-diff-treatment-125g-g70?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIr426paqh4gIVRiQrCh0rJQmsEAYYAiABEgI2JPD_BwE

    I'm not familiar with the EST, i'd always removed it. i wondered if it "locked the timing" wen you bridge that plug whether it would be useful for gas tune. wouldn't put more advance in though with vac etc

    working that out on 100km it's 15 litres. that's pretty normal for a mild crossflow. when i was in Geelong i'd use Lister Automotive, Sean(shuan?) used to do it back then, no idea what they are like these days, but he was pretty cluey with crossflows(wanted to fit delco ecu from a holden on My worked crossflow back in the day, because it was tunable and cheap) i'd say economy wise it's not going to get any better.. power wise depends what's done now, Lpg on straight gas benefits from more initial timing and same total(so most mobs lock the dizzy mechanical advance, and crank it up to 27 ish base timing. ) tuning the mixer isn't something that takes long, so you might benefit from dyno tune as it' would cost 1hr on dyno if there are no issues $150 -$200 they'd want it to be serviced recently, no point tuning on worn out leads and plugs etc.
