    Project XH

    Well, I've finally "sat" the engine in the bay. Hopefully now it'll all start rolling from here. Any of you who've seen it in Street Fords magazine might remember how sexy it looked stock!



    Then the idea of going turbo.


    Then all new suspension and rims (minimal bling)


    Then we get serious


    And yes, the engine isn't straight. Gotta sort out the sump vs crossmember clearance issue next. Otherwise, stock XH engine mounts fitted perfectly.

            Yes... but only when running the 0psi boost and flesh hands pipe manifold setup. ps: I lol'd at that one for seconds

                        How was the bonnet clearance in the XH?

                        You're forgetting that the XH ute has the EF type front end crossmember under it. I'm pretty sure the sway bar is at the rear of the crossmember then. It wouldn't foul in the same way it does on our X cars. I take this to mean you aren't running one at all then? I did that for a while and then ended up spacing it down a bit to clear. A custom sway bar is pretty much the only way.

                        I have been scoring quite a few turbo parts for my NA twin cammer. Also just bought an XG ute. NFI if i will put it in that or just use it as a parts hack until the next dream machine comes along.

                        watching this thread with keen interest!

                            Well, it does have coil overs and retrofitted BA leafs (they bolt in :P) and hopefully soon big stoppers. Would be interesting to launch it off the transbrake at Goulburn airport.:rotflol:

                              I hear Mossy is introducing a burnout comp, so you might win something ;)
