I have done an EL XR8 motor into XF conversion

So i am using EL power steering pump with XF Steering pump. Which fluid should i use? DextronIII? or whatever the recommended EL fluid is?

Cheers

Yeh mate, DexIII

Can you tell me a little more about the Windsor install in the XF. I'm thinking about putting an AU V8 into an XD.

Finished putting motor in. All running as of today

Took it for a good strap - very fun!! (will post more info later)

But the bloody power steering is very noisy!!! I think it must be the fluid. I used DexIII like sugested but its now very noisy!!

What should i do??

what does the fluid look like? is it milky looking. make sure its bleed which is easy just go lock to lock about 3 times, if its still noisy id say the pump has gone in it.
