Looks awesome Peter.

There must be more XF throttle bodies on other cars, then there are ford falcons these days.

Oh and wont the air come out of those holes in the bottom of the plenum chamber???????? ;D

So that -6 fitting going from the turbo to the back of the block is a coolant line right?

I run a small water line from under thermo housing, around front of head, along under spark plugs and into back of head near  no 6 plug, ie a heater bypass, othetwise they can hotspot back around 6

Well  Simon its because the engines now have stepped up a notch or two  in spec and Finnish ,thanks to Les ... iv picked up so much in a short time ,all we do is think up new ways to make L series go faster.

SO  to answer your question Simon it can be done very easy as your head gasket can be re used ... and it would be a good thing to do
