there is an X series section to these forums.

But to answer your question, yes, but you will need the wiring for the EFI engine. All the looms, the ECU, The fuel rail, injectors, throttle body. But if you got a car with one, should be easy engough.

FYI the EFI crossflows consisted of a different head, as opposed to the carbies. So it may be simpley, to just put the carby head, and setup back on the EFI motor. Save alot of time wiring s**t, and setting it all up.

But it all comes down to how much work you wanna do.


Cheers

Since when has the efi and carbyheads been the same. XE - XF carby is the same. XE - XF efi is the same. But efi and carby arnot alike at all. From past experience with the efi motors they are a bucket of s**t. If you want to keep your xf falcon it is worthwhile doing a xg 4.0l conversion, far superior motor, parts redily available, and you can develop more power for less money.

I am keeping my xf and am doing a 4.0l conversion very soon.

they are for all intents and purposes interchangeable, i've only ever worked on 3-4 EFI XE-XF's, but i've worked on countless carby XE-XF's, and EVERY one of the f**k has had the injector reliefs in the inlet ports
