Hay guys how are we all?

Im starting my next project 4.0L ohc into a xp

Looking at options for the ignition side of things as i dont want to run an ecu.

Ive looked on alot of forums and found some good stuff on hear about moding a xf dizzy.

Also found some info on using a 4.0L one and just setting a base timing.

Is there a build thread some where that can clear up a few things i might be missing?

Cheers guys its good to be working on a ford again.

And you asked this question in the Forced Induction section instead of the 6 Cylinder Engine section because?

From a little reading and talking, the ones that are running the XF EST are running an MSD programmable module.

The XD-XF super petrol electronic distributor with mods is probably the way to go.

That said, if you are going to run a mechanical distributor and a carby, you are missing the main advances of the 4.0 over a crossflow. 

Definitely be a lot easier to bolt in a 250 crossflow. The 4.0 will be a lot more work.

Or, if you intend going for boost later .....

Go for the 4.0 but keep it EFI.

There are engine management systems now that are easily tuned, reliable, and cost barely more than a good carburetor.
