    Megasquirt into XF EFI

    Is the UNICHIP any good for the XF EEC1V computer.?..Or using the EA/EB 1 closed loop( no smartlock) EEC1V, and running a stock code better, and cheaper...?

    T5 GEARBOX NOISE

    It appears to need at least 20-30 mins of driving/usage/heat before the noise appears. The noise appears at a certain REV..2200-2500 rpm...when i am in 2nd gear there is a BEARING sound and i can actually "feel" the gear stick slightly moving in my hand, yet the gearbox mechanic cant find any thing wrong internally, the bearings are new, and the seals changed...
  4. Hopefully some one has had this problem, and can help. After driving the car last week for about 20-30 mins, all at the legal speed limit, so there was no speeding, no taking off like i am doing the 1/4 mile, I noticed, first a "BEARING" type noise when i depressed the clutch and changed from 2-3rd. At the next set of lights, turning the stereo down, I took off, staying in 1st a little longer, just when i was going to change into 2nd, I heard, what sounded like METAL RUBBING METAL, changed into 2nd, ball bearing sound, then at about 23 to 2500 RPM,s the METAL sound again, I depressed the clutch, to change into 3rd, did it, and as i released the clutch pedal, the noise could be heard again..This noise is only heard going UP through the gears. On thursday i had the box pulled down really the only thing they could find wrong is the REVERSE gear cluster, slightly worn,...I had the bearings replaced anyway, and new seals. Went out today, sunday, Same thing happened again, same amount of time, same noise..1st, off, I am thinking, 20-30 mins..HEAT, 2ND its the front INPUT BEARING....thoughts please...OH, last year I had a EXEDY SPORTS CLUTCH put in....

    He said some lines, T pieces and that vacuum canister. Actually any one got an exploded view of an XF showing the vacuum lines under the bonnet..?

    Xf A/C COMPRESSOR

    OK, so its been gassed, the vacuum is holding, but apparently half of the lines are missing and a VACUUM canister is missing..SO I have to find these things geez..

    Xf A/C COMPRESSOR

    With the engine having to be pulled out so the BAY could be painted, there would be no gas in there..so ill see what happens today..
