Dropped my mates off before heading to the panel beaters.

And unloaded it myself at the panel beaters.  I just used the hand brake and slowly let it roll of the trailer.

Ok so I got the engine bay painted.  Some parts of it came out a bit ruff but when we fit in all the engine components it should hide most of it.  I thought I would buy Nason in silver thinking that should be an easy color and paint to spray but how wrong was I lol. I sprayed some of the chassis black in the wheel arches and underneath and that came out awesome!

I had to cut away the sump for the clutch cable to pass through

I couldn't believe it!  I bloody broke the taps on the throwout bearing that holds it to the clutch arm.  Dame what to do! So after Mel calmed me down and got me thinking about how to modify it, I had the thought to get the throwout bearing from the old XF t5 and removed the retaining ring.  I then cut grooves into the new bearing retainer and presto clipped in the ring.  Better than standard now and easier to install lol

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 2 20170210_193834_zpsur4dtboc

I cleaned and painted the powersteering box to be installed before the engine goes in.  

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 2 20170210_155126_zpsskebmbqr

After all the crying (about the throwout bearing) we called it a night and when I slid the motor back to its storage spot I broke the Head Temp Sensor!  GOD DAME time for a beer and swim then sleep.  The next day I bolted down to PickaPart and got another sensor for 10 bucks thank goodness. (no pics)

Ok so the next day (saturday 11/02/17) we were ready to slap a Barra into the ol XF.  After I installed the new sensor and bolted up the AU T5 Gearbox.

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 2 20170211_103719_zpsn16wdub8

Mel decided it would be a good Idea to remove the shifter completely so it didn't scratch our paint as it went in

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 2 20170211_104140_zpszgknquov

Up Up and away!  Got a nice angle there straight away!

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 2 20170211_110727_zpsj92qdeu3

I went one more step and sticky taped an old car wash sponge to the back of the gearbox to further protect our freshly painted bay. It works a treat!

So I quickly made up some brackets to mount the gearbox in.  They maybe just tempry for the moment till I sort out a better way of doing it.  I have seen a couple of pics on Facebook that have given me better ideas but this will do for the moment.

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 2 20170211_134820_zpsyjrac5wd

I used the AU crossmember for the moment

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 2 20170211_133758_zps7xqwx8ni

I had to wedge a block of wood because it the gearbox wasn't central

So I cut the tunnel out a bit to clear the shifter.  Lucky I'm running with an AU Falcon T5 because the BA/BF Boxes are even longer and you have to cut back to that strengthening crossmember you can see running across the floor.

The old Aricon holes in the fire wall are great to run the new wiring loom threw.

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 2 20170211_141203_zps3nwn6bgi

And got a new power steering line made using the BF pump end and the XG steering box end.  Cost a bit but hey its done right and if I even wanna use the sensor its there ready to hook up.

Just another couple of posts to keep you all in the know of what I'm up too.

I bought a double flare kit to do fuel and brake lines!

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 2 20170216_080331_zps2t0bzdcx

So I double flared the ends of the fuel in and out lines so I can run rubber section of fuel line to the stock steel fuel lines.

Dummy fitted the radiator and reservoir tank.  Not a straight in fit like I hoped but just a little notch a couple of holes to drill and some welding and should be sweet.  This is where I need to buy a welder!

Ok guys time for a massive update.  A couple of weeks ago my brother in-law was up visiting and he brought his new toy with him.  A 2017 KTM EXC 6Days.  What an awesome machine.  So we both got stuck into working on our machines.  While he was bolting on some custom parts to his bike I continued work on the XF getting the radiator mounted properly and customising the airbox to fit.  I also cleaned up the brake booster from my bros old XF and got it mounted in too.

I also put the bonnet back on so I can make the cuts to clear the Barra engine!

Me and Mel also decided to go with the bonnet scoop to allow lots of air in to cool the future turbo.

I had to extend the pipe work for the airbox so I went to the wreckers and found some pipe from a commodore lol  It worked well.

I almost completely cut the arse out of the airbox to get it to fit in.  Just enough room for the radiator pipe.   I'm going to make a new section for the airbox to go in behind the headlight and also run a nice K&N filter.

Some notching for the radiator mounts.  when I get my welder I will put a few tacks around them for  extra strength.  Its a bit rough atm but hey,, Race Car!!

I had to make a plastic spacer to go between the rad and the mount.

So I realised I couldn't run the BF thermo fan because there is no room between the engine and radiator!  So I was off to the wreckers again for some EF/EL ones which suited the radiator better anyway.  Also JB Automotive Electrical done the wiring for twin fans anyway so worked out good.

Ok So we finally got to kick the Barra in the guts. She fired up beautiful except the power steering pump is noisy. I filled it with fluid but as soon as it started it pumped it all around and was low again. I will grab some more fluid for it today when I'm in town so I can hear her fire up one more time and hopefully the noise in the pump will go.

She's Alive
