Hey guys. Im looking at purchasing a XE 302 and doing a conversion to my XC 250 Xflow. Will it be a straight swap over ? Can i grab some goodies like Power stearing and all that ? Should i just take out everything including the driveline and do a swap over ? Anything i should look out for ? Thanks!

every thing will go strait in bar the diff. I'd also change the front coils to handel the extra weight, the xe coils will also go in although I'd probably buy a new pair.

Not all XE's have coil spring rears (i.e. the utes, pannelvans and wagons still retain the old leaf spring set up). I thought XF was the first coil spring rear end Falcon sedan but I'm probably wrong on that!

as long as normal isn't nearing redline every shift, it should hold up for a fair while. i've seen a 6cyl XY diff last 3 months in an XC 302 with 351 running gear in it, and that was flogged to s**t day in, day out!

Since the other car is a wagon every thing accept the tailshaft will fit. Your old tailshaft will last no worries unless you do something wild to the motor or flog it to pieces
