it would be very hard to get a roadworthy as XF's diddnt come out with V8's. however i think i have seen a few in mags, i think i even saw a turbo one in an old street machine mag once.

You must keep all emmissions gear to go with the motor.

youd probably need an engineers cert, but it wont be a biggie since the XD (which XF is based on) was designed for a V8 of similar origins.

xd / xe / xf have the same body structure right?

as far as i know - i *think* if it has ADR28 stamped on it, it wont need engineers cert... (coz im pretty sure - not 100$ tho) thats the adr for the v8s...

can be done - seen plenty of em - its just a b**ch to change the spark plugs!

piss easy fit, yes u do need engeneers report, & will pass no probs, just use all emmission gear & cat etc. it fits in better than the clevo, cause the windsor misses the heater hoses on the fire wall, the clevo dont, from memory u can even usse the v8 engine mounts, gearbox crossmember needs 2 be moved just a tad, but it fits nice, have fun :P
