Hoping someone can shed some light on this. The workshop manual says to remove the kickdown cable but I've seen other info which says it has an electronic kickdown.

If it has a cable for kickdown, I can only find what appears to be throttle and cruise cables.

Any help appreciated, thank you.

Evening all,
I have a question regarding making a hybrid AU2/AU3 XR8 motor. Ive posted this on fordmods but thought I would also sing out here.

I currently have a series 2 XR8, with the 200kw donk. I have an opportunity to get a hand on a 220kw motor from a wrecking XR or at least as many components as I choose.

I initially have my eye on the Tickford branded throttle body, do I need to take the MAF and airbox piping as well to make life easier?.

im also thinking of taking the heads from the series 3 XR motor, how would these components hook up to my AU2 XR cam, rods and block? Conscioys of rockers, etc.

Extractors? Both motors are running factory items.

Finally engine management, if this Franken combo works, would standard AU2 XR engine management handle this?

My current motor is fine, the possible AU3 has a busted harmonic balancer and bottom end is unknown. The yop end components look good, im just curious what is worth getting my hands on to enhance my series 2.

I wouldn't fit the heads until I have the funds to fit/purchasestroker kit as well as replace rear seal (starting to leak). However the throttle body and MAF might get bolted straight in if an easy addition.

cheers guys.

DJ

Default Re: AU V8 models: Basic questions answered!

To further clarify the query, I am hoping to use the following exisitng AU2 engine components (cause I know they are in good condition):

- Short motor (block, cam)
- Manifold
- MAF
- All other fuel components (spark plugs, injectors, cables, etc)

And combine with the following donor Series 3 items:
- Cylinder heads (including valves and rocker arms and springs)
- Throttle body.

The question I am most wondering is which rods and lifters should I retain/reuse for this combination.

Great thread.
Question...
Series 1 AU 5.0 Fairlane Ghia bog stock.
I've got the opportunity to get Crane Cams roller rockers and pushrods and the owner says they have a ratio of 1.72. Is it just a matter of bolting these onto my stock motor?
What else should I be doing?
Thx.

Yes, should be a straight bolt on.

As you will be stressing the valve springs a little more, I would changed them out for the crow version as well, with new locks and retainers.

I did this exact same upgrade to my bog stock 5L LTD - a nice little bump in power. With air intake and extractors this combination produce 154rwkw with would take it over 200fwkw. Good luck.

That's just where the power peaks at. And yes on these it's cam and exhaust related, although the 220 also had a light bit of head porting and a bigger throttle body, although the cam was slightly smaller than the 200.
