This is the XF that Ford should have built. If you want something done right ya gotta do it yourself.

Ford has stopped selling these now (and other parts for this era)

No i've got a complete auto efxr8 loom,2 manual xh engine bay looms,an xh i6 loom and an xh v8 loom.The trouble is that the xh dash has diffrent plugs to the ef one,and is not realy interchangable (ie not at all).
So are the plugs for the computer on your dash loom or on the engine bay loom (the one that comes in on the righthand side of the firewall)?

The plugs/cable for my auto computer are seperate. It comes from the ecu, and is not connected in any way to the dash loom.

Im not quite sure if that was what u were asking tho...
