Has anyone here done a 5ltr conversion from a e series falcon or AU into a XD or XE Falcon either with a auto or the factory T5 from the same car?. Any info on what is required for that would be greatly appreciated.

You'll find a few on xfalcon.com and ozfalcon.com. I did one - an XF with the EFI 5.0 from an NC, with the 4 speed auto.

Have a look on those sites - the conversion for both is reasonably documented. Use Clevo V8 mounts for engine, custom rear mount for transmission (sometimes you can notch the existing one, but not always). E Series Tailshaft : If you keep your XD/E diff then use an EA one, if you use an EB or ED Diff then use a later Tailshaft.

Electricals are the hardest part. I used an NC 5.0 pre smartlock ECU and TCM, and transplanted the entire NC Harness to the Dash. I also changed to the NC Cluster.

The easiest way, and keeping the XE Electricals would be to use an AU EFI Harness as most of the wiring for everything is in the single harness going forward from the EEC except for the Speedo Power (normally 8.2v from the cluster - and the XE Cluster provides this), and the Drivers side O2 Sender. Ive done exactly this putting a 220kw into an E36 BMW. Use a J3 chip from TIPerformance to remove the need for smartshield or smartlock

If your going to go manual, then any E Series 5.0 Harness will work, and any ECU - you'll still want to get a J3 chip as it will disable any imobiliser, and you can convert an Auto EEC to a manual one properly. The hardest part is finding a good manual setup.

And beware - The AU Manual is a good setup, but the shifter is a few CM further back than the E Series

Just remember that AU V8 wiring also requires AU V8 ecu & matching AU V8 componentry. The correct componentry is dictated by the AU V8 ecu (or more importantly the program code on the ecu = called the calibration) you use, not all AU V8's are the same. The obvious differences are injectors - orange v's blue. But even components that look the same, may be different - FPR's are a classic example. They all have the same Ford part number, but 185kW v's 200kW v's 220kW v's 250kW regulate to different fuel pressures. Get those mixed up and your fuel delivery will be incorrect. So if you get a different AU V8 calibration loaded onto a J3 chip eg a manual calibration for an auto ecu, you need to use the correct AU V8 componentry (injectors & FPR) that the calibration was designed to run.

These differences can be tuned out if you know what you're doing and have read/write/edit capability
