    5.4 Falcon Boss engine & transmission conversion

    Hey Franswa, I had a 4L80E transmission rebuilt and beefed up (as I wanted overdrive) I had an adapter plate CNC'd to mate the engine to the trans as none exist off the shelf and the starter needed relocating. Had the ECU re-mapped for the BOSS to remove all the security to become a 'turn key"...

    5.4 Falcon Boss engine & transmission conversion

    Ok, for those that are interested....have decided on the 60series front brakes. Brad at Early Land Cruiser Spares helped me out again with these, good fella too! I can always throw the TSMMFG set up on the Cruiser after and since I will probably have to use a VH40 remote brake booster, which is...

    5.4 Falcon Boss engine & transmission conversion

    Anyone know of an Australian supplier of brake packages? I've priced up TSMMFG and they seem quite reasonable on price and quality - wilwood 4pots on the front and their own generic with park brake on the back, (can't have a transfer case park brake on the 80series case) all up about $1600aud...

    5.4 Falcon Boss engine & transmission conversion

    Ok, quick update..... From exhaustive searches on various forums it seems I have the enviable task of being maybe the first to attempt to throw one of these Modular engines into a cruiser but mad or not it's happening! .....please come out of the woodwork if there's anyone else that's done it...

    5.4 Falcon Boss engine & transmission conversion

    Cheers �� I'll have a look at them! It's looking like I may have to settle for a turbo 400 trans if I want 4WD, relatively easy adaption to the modular ford engine and plenty of peeps doing the adaption from the TH400 tranny to the 80series transfer case....would have liked a trans with over...

    5.4 Falcon Boss engine & transmission conversion

    :think: Update....unfortunately Johno has made a little booboo....seems the transmission for the BA XR8 was not what he thought which is an M97LE, nothing against him - very friendly guy and admitted his mistake and everyone makes one :thumbup: Only option now, I must nut it out and forget...

    5.4 Falcon Boss engine & transmission conversion

    Thanks for your help Ed I've called Marks today, they were very helpful but mainly do conversions for th400s to Chevy engines etc... The T5 gearbox can be adapted but I have the 4speed auto from the ba xr8 I want to put in. I haven't been able to find anyone that does the adaption from my...

    5.4 Falcon Boss engine & transmission conversion

    Thank you Paddler for your reply I will definitely have a look at Marks adapters....what I am realy wanting to know is about the Ford's 4speed transmission and whether there is a transfer box that I can mate to it for the 4wd, like some have done with the turbo 400 transmissions when a chev...

    5.4 Falcon Boss engine & transmission conversion

    For my America friends....the transmission (I think!) is a Borg Warner 95/97le and the 5.4 liter dohc 4v v8 is similar to the Lincoln navigator InTech .....and shelby gt500, cobra etc...without the supercharger and aluminium block

    5.4 Falcon Boss engine & transmission conversion

    Hi to all, this question is more to my Aussie counterparts but any input would be much appreciated. I have a 1970 Fj45 and a BA XR8 falcon. My plan is to transplant both the XR8's 4 speed transmission and engine into the FJ. Fabrication and fitment of this is not a problem, although an...
