Im getting psyched up to do my first V8 rebuild... the 5L in my ED XR8. Shes starting to leak everywhere. There are sure to be a few traps for novices so can anyone recommend a good book covering Windsor rebuild.

buy yourself an AUII or III xr8 220 motor instead and drop it in.

Take a few pictures of where things go and keep it all organised where you put all the parts so you dont get the bolts mixed up
