    XF DIFF RATIO

    The 2.77 is NOT lame..however i am having to go through the gears to fast , the ratio is too low, I have an AU /several actually, with around the same HP, and the ratios being 3.23/3.45 are better suited to the HP..I want the XF to run out longer as the engine runs out near 5400 RPM, I want the diff to run out longer..

    XF EFI CAT

    I am not sure what has happened, it was just the changing through the gears, the car felt like it was being held back, but now that LAG has disappeared..the car seems freer, the lag, being held back, has gone..

    XF EFI CAT

    I heard such good things about these CATS, i decided it was time to put one on and obviously, it should have one on, mine was a straight through pipe from the extractors to the muffler at the rear.....I WENT OUT side and measured the diameter and it is 2 1/4 inch...any way the car works a lot better now....

    XF EFI CAT

    I have been driving my XF EFI without a CAT for about 20-22 years, 2 1/2 INCH STAINLESS STEEL, GENIE EXTRACTORS, AND a rear muffler., GREAT sound, how ever i have always found that if I accelerate through the gears, every time i change a gear, the car feels like it is being held back, it does not want to keep going, I have decided this week, WEDNESDAY, to put a HI-FLOW 100 CELL CAT ON. CHALK and CHEESE, The car wants to go, it feels like there is another 5-10 kws OF power there...any one know why this would be.I thought the straight through pipe would be better with no restrictions..

    EFI PUSHRODS..

    Is there a company that sells a stronger better PUSHROD for the XF EFI ENGINES.., I rarely ever go pass the 5000 rpm,s, YES the SVO does do it, but I keep bending the RODS, when I do, so its a rarity..also WOULD it help to change the LIFTERS?..CHEERS.
  13. I had these noises from under my AU XR 6, The mechanic said link pins were gone, I bought some springs and monroe shocks and a 28 mm sway bar 2 new link pinks, It sits a few MM,s lower and handles better ..However the noises are still there...the only thing the MECHANIC pointed out to me was the rotors were slightly warped, could that be where the noise/s are coming from....he did not say any thing about the Ball joints..?
