    T5 and SOHC into XF

    I put a au engine in my xf earlier this year . I used rod shop engine mounts to suit a Barra conversion as there the same blocks nearly And a sway bar from tuff mounts to suit a Barra to clear the au sump . I used a stock v8 core radiator but spun it around 180 degrees and welded the fittings on the other side of the radiator I run straight lpg , and a dizzy out of a xe falcon .. I'm upgrading the ignition now but it works pretty well at 7psi Or would be good for carby/lpg n/a engine You will just need a xf t5 crossmember for t5 conversion and a manual pedal box Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Perfect rim offset 15x8

    That's a fair tyre also .. I wonder if I got some made 4.75 inch back space just to be safe .. My cars pretty low .. and I don't want to shorten the diff if I'm having wheels made . I might get some bands abs see how they look .. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I'm going to have some spac rims turned into 15x8s and run 255/50/15 drag radials on my xf .. A lot of people suggest 4.5 inch back space for off the shelf rims I've always found they hang out a bit to far and rub a bit .. Just wonder what people thoughts are ? What offset would you run if you could run any ??? probably going to get a band sent over and measure it all up any way but thought ide see what you guys think also ...

    Removal of lpg gear

    Keep the lpg and pull the petrol out [emoji6] My au gets about 600ks a tank on the hwy . Cost about $50 to fill the tank .. If you put some more timing in it and it will go well also . Only problem is in country towns it's hard to get lpg .. It's kinda a unfinished project , I just put the 225 there because it fits better .. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    lpg/petrol

    With a stock motor and just a j3 you can't .. plus a street engine would never see the revs .. For a stock street engine I would still run a bbm .. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    lpg/petrol

    That's not entirely true .. the bbm is more restrictive.. but gives better air speed .. so torque is much higher .. I ran a log manifold on my ute .. 10.5 Comp .. 1521a cam . Real good porting job . Made 220hp with bbm Makes 250hp now with a stock log .. Andy sanders at specialised power porting suggest the change .. On stockish motors the bbm works and drives fantastic.. but at higher rpm it's restrictive .. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Budget boost rebuild, pistons and rings

    Not really a tuner thing overly .. stock cam will be okay ... but maybe after you get it running / tuned then put the cam in and see how it affects the cars performance.. I just had a cam done for me , basically high end big boost custom grind is the only way Mid boost there is probably some cams that will work pretty well off the shelf , it's just all playing around .

    Budget boost rebuild, pistons and rings

    I have a mate who makes about 300kw in a daily xg .. using those rods . Much Cheeper than trying to fit arp to e series rods .. What's the specs of a dev5 ?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Budget boost rebuild, pistons and rings

    If you have a el engine you should get some xflow rods and put some arp rod bolts in it .. People will say the newer ohc are stronger, but it's really not true .. I've always used acl pistons and stock cast rings .. Use a multilayer steel head gasket . And apart from that unless you plan on forge pistons and billet rods I wouldn't get to worry about any thing else . Maybe a different cam would help . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
