Nice, that seems like a reasonable deal.

From memory, the hardest part for me was removing the locking ring on the fuel pump. I not only needed the tool (available here) but also a metal pole over...

300 Nm (221 ft lbs) according to the service manual (attached).

Nice work man!

I'm planning on doing this when I replace all the bushes with powerflex and change out the diff bushes. But I need a lift for that and the previous DIY shop I used closed down.

Course they do. The TSB is a real ***ing pain in the ass to execute. The wires don't have much slack and it stinks of gas while you're working on it. Pretty horrible job to be fair. Far easier to...

Depends on how much material was removed. I had the heads on mine resurfaced before refitting - they were measured within spec so not warped, but with these newer multi-layer steel gaskets they're...

Yeah, that's not wheel weights. Sounds more drivetrain related, although unfortunately I'm not particularly familiar with the AWD system on the XF. Potentially a CV joint on a halfshalf starting to...

I didn't - since the factory rods are already forged, and I didn't have an unlimited build budget, I decided to keep them (and get two replacements for the two that had spun bearings). I used ARP...

I saw Torx Plus on that wikipedia page when I posted it and wondered if actually they were the ones - I think you may have luck with them. Tempted to grab a set off Amazon myself.

Very nice!

Alsaropolis can I recommend you start your own build thread, otherwise this thread could get pretty confusing as to which build is which!

For future reference, if you set a title on a reply to a thread it's pretty hard to read, but I saw it - exhaust manifold bolts.

I struggled with these too - officially it's a "Polydrive" or a...
