PostSubject: BF Powered XF Race Car   BF Powered XF Race Car EmptyMon Nov 28, 2016 6:09 am

So I have been keen on getting onto the Barra conversion bandwagon!  Me and Mel have had the plans to build a race car for years out a XF we dragged out of a scrap heap.  Because of family matters we couldn't get the project finished.  Several years down the track and we are glad we waited because everything happens for a reason.  Those in between years I just focused on the XD and done a full rebuild and raced it hard for the last 2 year but its time to put her to rest before anything bad happens because I was pushing it hard in the end.  The last thing I want to do is put my DJR signature XD into a wall or something.  With Mel getting more and more interested in racing also wants a car to race but refuses to race my XD because of sentimental reasons behind the car.  So finding a XF in the scrap heap all those years ago is a god send for a pure racer project.  I found a excellent condition 2007 BF Falcon conversion for $750.  Parts include:

190 Engine with 130,000 ks on the clock with papers and proof of the cars services
Full wiring loom including relay box
The whole cooling system including radiator and fan
Spanish Oak Computer
Starter Motor
Power steering pump and lines, air-con pump
Throttle pedal
BF Dashboard cluster
Air Box and piping
Exhaust engine pipe with cat and a muffler
Labor to pull it all from the car.  I didn't do a thing!
and if there is anything else I need of the car I'm welcome to go back and get whatever I need for no extra.

I have also purchased:

X-Series Roll cage - $200
XG ute sway bar $25
Xg ute power steering lines - $20 (with mini cooler)

Next on the list:

XG ute engine mounts ($20)
XG ute power steering box (I may have one yet)
Au Falcon T5 Gearbox and Bellhouseing + BA Clutch and Flywheel - all together $440
XF Dashboard cluster
Get wiring loom modified to Stand alone loom $800

Stuff I have!

XF T5 gearbox and mounts
XF pedal box
EL Diff and modified tail shaft
EL Fuel pump and loads of other EL stuff


Because of Stupid Photobucket destroying millions of Threads I have decided to make a video that include all the pics from the thread.  So possibly you will be able to watch the vid on Youtube and read along this thread and get the idea of what's going on.  I will post the video at the start and at the end off all my threads.  It's going to take a very long time to do every thread I have ever made but I will do my best to get all my main ones done first.

Kick back and enjoy the vids kids.  


Cheers Joshy351














Here are the pics so far!

One of the things that had me sold on this conversion was how good the oil is in the engine.  Its so clean and dead on the full mark.  (the oil ran back up the dip stick a little bit when taking the pic.)  I had to have this engine.  I will do a full oil and filter change on it before start up.

Some of the other stuff!

A T5 that came out of a XF (had it for years) could be useful for some things like rear mount and clutch cable mounts.  It has a modified EL tail-shaft hanging out of it which was spare for the XD.

Ok so going back in time about 2011ish.  We pulled this XF from the scrap heap.  Some people may remember our old original Thread on X-Falcon about our xf racer we called Drift-XF.  I may still use it for a drift session or 2 once we turbo it in the future but for now to concentrate on just sprints and track days.

So we are going to use the XF Body kit I have for it.  Minus the bonnet scoop.

so we got it sprayed in high fill and this is about where things came to a halt on this project back somewhere 2011-2012.  We are going to pick up the car and bring it home to Rockhampton in less then 2 weeks so we are getting real excited!  We may have to strip it completely back and re-undercoat but that shouldn't be to big of an issue.  The paint doesn't have to be summernats quality, just tidy enough for passing scrutineer at the track days.  We have a paint scheme sorted but we will revel that at the end

I have all the side skirts and the other parts of the body kit stored away.

Just a quick update!  I got all the wiring out and got it ready to send to JB Automotive Electrical.  Should have it back in about 3 weeks which is perfect.  We are picking up the XF in a week and a half time.  I should be able to get the Crossflow and auto out and get the engine bay painted.

This is the engine bay wiring loom (needed) and the alternator wires. The relay box wiring loom and computer Jb doesn't need, the throttle peddle is there too.

This one is getting sent

BF Powered XF Race Car 20161129_134755_zpsigesxxoh

Now to get the engine wiring off the motor!  Man that was a tricky job.  Hope I remember how it all goes back on.

and its off.  Wow that was a mission.  I had to remove the aircon pump to get one wire out.

And this is whats getting sent away.

Ok so here is a huge update!  A week and a half ago we ventured down to Maryborough where our race car shell was located and picked it up.  We took the XE (The Sheriff) down to get it stored away safely while we build the race car.  Otherwise we would have to many cars at the one place.  I really need a massive shed lol.


Off to Mary Land we go!

Hi everyone time for a quick update.  So this morning I picked up the T5 gearbox from the wreckers.  This box came from an AU xr6 ute.  I also have the clutch, flywheel and sandwich plate.  I also got a clutch from a BA xr6 ute and noticed that there are a few differences.

Here is the new AU XR6 T5 Gearbox

BF Powered XF Race Car 20161228_134837_zpsx1qyeixb

Here is the AU clutch and flywheel

BF Powered XF Race Car 20161228_134912_zpslrvmbhtr

And the BA clutch and flywheel

BF Powered XF Race Car 20161228_134924_zpsnz33hca9

Both together

BF Powered XF Race Car 20161228_134930_zps1dbaaiyy

The first thing I noticed was that the thickness of the flywheels look different.  And the stud pattern between the Au and the BA are different as well.

BF Powered XF Race Car 20161228_140000_zpsy02w9ujv

I hope this doesn't hinder the fitment of the AU box too much.  Im hoping to run the BA flywheel and get a clutch plate to suit the au box.  I will still need a pilot bearing and a clutch cable.

Ok so this morning I was mucking around in the shed and I really needed to know if this AU clutch and flywheel was going to work for me.  Yesterday when I was at the wreckers picking up the box and clutch I was compareing the flywheels from AU to BA and the seamed to be different stud patterns.  So I thought I would try and bolt the AU Flywheel onto the barra anyway just to be sure.  And guess what it bolted on no problem.  I figured out that the way I was comparing the flywheels back to back one hole would never line up Rolling Eyes lol.  So I dummy fitted the clutch and gearbox to see how it all fits.  Looks mad can't wait to get it into the XF.

So yesterday and today I done the tedious job of sorting out what plug goes where.  Wow what a mission.  A lesson learned here make sure you mark and number your plugs before taking them off lol.

This one is not an injector plug.

I also put together my wheel dollies.  I was giving the missus heaps and said I was building car stuff on our expensive rug hahah.

BF Powered XF Race Car 20170104_121354_zpsqqix4axs

I also removed all the heater hoses.  It made the wiring easier to put on and plus being a race car we wont be needing a heater.  So I'm going to block off these hole with a welsh plug.

I went on a little parts mission this morning!

Picked up the BF fuel pump,  Got the flywheel machined and picked up the flywheel bolts from Ford.
