hi, recently bought a XF ute, the carby motor runs fine, got some power in it but i want to chuck the fuel injected 4L in it just because it'll probably be better on fuel and easier to tinker with. Is it possible? whats involved? Im guessing my manual box wont bolt straight on so that'd mean changing the bellhousing, will it bolt up? Cheers....Jake

and if you get a wreck, you need:

Tank (one of a kind)
Fuel lines
Power steering box (or convert the lines to metric)
sway bar
body loom
ecu
dash loom
bell housing
engine mounts and pillars
battery box
air box
piping
recovery tank
radiator
and a few other little bits as you go.

as above, easier to buy an XG
