Thaks for ur replies fellas....

Yea, the whole bodykit is a bit different.... looking back now i probly wouldnt have got it - but i got it basically for nothing at the time so i put it on before the spray job...

But yea anyway....

As for the trip computer - i'll definately be doing that with in the next few months... the one i've seen on here looks sweet.

The motors getting a work over very soon, i need 24lb injectors + MAF, heads getting done (GT40s), 2030 cam, underdrive pulley kit, and new custom pipes....

So once i jump back in it it will seem like a new car.....

with lots of balls

cant wait.

Hats off mate to an excellent effort. Only you could appreciate the time and effort put into it, and although the XH's had a lot of similarities to the XF, some bits weren't a direct plug and play. No doubt some modification was needed, and probably provided a lot of challenges.
No doubt a bit more refinement with EF/EL trip computer & cruise control will make it even more unique.

Nah. i did have a sticker on the back when it was for sale. it had the 250 in it then though....
couldnt sell it so i put the v8 in it and decided to keep it

its just stock for now - until i get back from overseas, then its getting a work over

aiming for 180-200rwkw or more if im lucky

As for the head unit and surrounding - its a standard XH series II mount. (except i coulodnt get an ash tray in the same colour - so its black. Head unit is Alpine with standard alpine silver surround

Wiring wasnt that hard (but im a comms tech for a living)

Its all standard XH wiring. i didnt use any XF loom apart from the rear lights (just connected them to the XH loom)


So dash was easy
