My understanding of it is you will not need an engineers report on it because your car came out with a V8 as an option. But it does depend who you talk to because I was told by "a vicroads engineer" that a 5ltr V8 wouldnt fit into the engine bay of an XF because they have a smaller engine bay. Go figure?

you will need an engineer certificate as the xf never came with a v8,
and from memory the firewall in xf is slightly different to xd/xe so it will need slight modification as the heater hoses also interfear with the passenger side head ...

OK thanks for the info guys

I was talking to a friend today and he said he looked into the rules because he is putting a new injected 5.0 litre into a WB ute and this guy is a truckie so one day when he got pulled over by Vicroads in his truck he asked the question and the Vicroads guys had to look it up in their books and they said it is fine to put a new engine in an older car as long as the car originally came out with that size motor standard and the new motor doesnt boost the power by more than 15%.... The new 5ltr is going in his WB today as I speak :D


Well if that's the rules down there your mates f**k then.
WB ute never come out from the factory as a 308. It wasn't even an option. It was 253 4.2 only in the ute.
Only the Statesman with 4 wheel discs etc got the 308.

Based on that fact my Mum is the best around!

I still need to engineer the 5 ltr but have found another engineer that said there shouldnt be a problem. Dont know what he is going to say about the IRS under the back of the panel van tho ??
