Location: Brisbane

I bought this ute about 6 months ago as an unfinished project. I did all the work myself except I paid a guy to weld the plate in the sump. Still need to gas the A/C but the hoses are joined & crimped.
Specs:
98 XHII Longreach ute, bench seat column shift
BA MKII 4.0L DOHC '04, modified sump
BF 4 speed auto, std converter, XH extension housing, mount & speedo drive, selector shaft flipped around, threads tapped into bellhousing for columnshift mounting bracket
BA ECU running stand alone with a custom loom, pats disabled with HP Tuner, wired into XH loom using all XH relays
STD Brakes, wheels & suspension
BA High pressure power steering pump hose & pump
BA alternator (plugs straight in)
BA engine mounts & brackets
2.5" lukey exhaust, cat modified for 2.5" outlet, 15" long hotdog on tailpipe
Autometer tacho adapter

This conversion is 100% street legal. I have a mod plate fitted for LA1 & LB1. Noise tested at 89dB.

Thats a real nice XH. The DOHC conversion looks so good you'd think it came from the factory like that.

I agree, it looks just right to be sitting in the XH. A good conversion and is great to see it done so well.

How close is the sump mod to the oil pickup?, looks great cant wait to go DOHC one day too (AU for now ;)).
