    That's just awesome, I love it. Welcome to the forum.

    Brilliant! I always like seeing proper XF's with a heart transplant!

    Looks soooo good. Well done.

    I remember seeing pics when it first popped up on xfalcon many moons ago, really does look like a factory xf v8.

    I wonder how different the e series might have been if the xf had copped the el2 wheezer in the late 80s....
