A little project I have been working on lately is my XD Fairmont Ghia. The car was ‘handed down’ I suppose you would say after my grandfather passed away, well actually nobody else in the family wanted it.
Anyway, the old 4.1 crossflow and 3-speed auto just wasn’t doing it for me so I got my hands on a written off AU Falcon and set about fitting the engine and auto from it into the XD. I’ve been documenting the swap over at the XFalcon forum and if you’re interested you can see it here – AU Engine Into XD.
If you are considering a late model engine swap into an early model Falcon or simply want to get more power from your XF-onwards, EEC equipped Falcon I highly recomend getting in touch with T.I. Performance. Jason’s knowledge is second to none and as far as customer service goes nothing is too much trouble, which is a rare thing these days! Check out the product range here – T.I. Performance
I haven’t been ‘on the tools’ for about six years and I certainly haven’t mucked around with the AU efi setup before so the posts are a bit ‘warts and all’ but it is coming together nicely.
