for the Mounts.. recomend using the EA upper and XF lowers (not XG like everyone thinks) and use the XG Sway Bar to fit around the Sump... other ones interfear with the Sump..

now the only thing tha may cause a bit of trouble is the alternator. it may or may not rub on the front .. can either slighly cut the front to allow it not to rub (if its a speedway car u prob not after Show/Shine so can proberly give this a good wack with a sledge hammer so it doesnt hit at all..)

you can use the E series Radiator but u gotta cut the mounts off the sides of the tanks and make up a new mount for it... thats the easy bit.


for the 4 BBL Manifold. Aussie speed sell them.

AussieSpeed have a performance manifold to suit your Ford xflow engine. Available in both 2 barrel & 4 Barrel there is a manifold to suit your performance upgrade, our manifolds suit Ford alloy head 200/3.3 & 250/4.1 crossflow engines & the new OHC Ford falcon EA,EB,ED,EF,EL & AU 3.9 & 4.0 litre overhead cam engine.


if i missed anything then some of the other blokes who have done this conversion feel free to interupt... but i think i covered everything.

*edit* cant spell.. fixed now
