hey guys am going to convert my ef 6 cylinder to a v8 so am chasing everything to do so. so if you have a engine or anyparts i will need let me know what and how much cheers shoey

hi i have ef xr8 motor (ex pursuit) 185 000 km's, has recently been removed from the car as i sold the gear box. the car it was removed from is there as well it was a standard shell with all the xr8 running gear put in it. $850 for the motor and wiring loom as long as u pull the loom out yourself.......
or come and make an offer for the rest of the car$$$$$$$$$
it has a 3.45 lsd diff.. has no suspension... no interior... no computer....and some other bits and pieces missing.... the car is in noble park..... And yes the 6 and 8 k frame are the same as i just fitted 1 in my car...

Very helpful info from yourself and xr8boy. Cheers fellas, just saved me some cash!

In the process of converting my XH 4.0 over to a 5.0. (I picked up a crashed XH XR8 a few years back - and put the running gear in my XF) Now im putting the v8 in the XH...

Does anyone know what the go is with the steering? Obviously if its the same K frame, the steering rack should be the same and in the same spot? Is it just the power steering lines that are different?

Anything else we should know of? (Air con/radiator)



Old - XF with XH XR8 Driveline...
Current - XHII XR8 ute - Kenne Bell Supercharged - Build in progress

Use the XH steering rack. Any e series rack will fit but steering racks fitted to EF EL XR's are better, a different ratio i think

you'll need to use the V8 accessories ie. aircon, aircon lines, PS pump and lines

I have deleted the aircon and moved a few things on my ED. The PS pump is actually mounted a bit higher than in the pic
