Look for a XK being sold with a salvage title or as a parts vehicle. You can pick one up for the cost of a crate motor and part out what you don't need. Other than trading in for a new commander that is the only thing I could say would be worth the time or money.Im also looking for more towing power I know the V-8 will handle more power.
Well I watched this thread with some amusment back in 08.MORE POOOOOWWWWEEEERRRR!!!!! Where's Robby?

Love the more power thing but on late model vehicles I can't suggest much more than jacking up the radiator cap and sliding a new vehicle under it.
Between getting a engine, trans, transfer case, both drive axles, ECM.....BCM,
all the necessary wiring......the list goes on.
Once done, you now have a freak that the EPA doesn't recognize as ever existing, a VIN that doesn't line up with the vehicle it is attached to, a vehicle that really can't be traded in and has zero trade value.
So, short of modifying the basic driveline, like supercharging, there really isn't anywhere to go.
Unless you have a really big checkbook and REALLY like that particular vehicle, and have a strong desire to make your life miserable that is.
I'm assuming the 7.2 Liter Conversion is with a Bored & Stroked 6.1L? I can't imagine trying to fit an old "RB" block into a Commander.I forgot the place that I have posted previously that does 5.7 6.1 and 7.2 conversions. If you are going to go big, GO BIG!! II just rolled 91,000 and trying to rack up the miles so I can have my 7.2 soon. If we are all around in 3 years you guys should see the results.
