302 in an XD is OK for a P plater. Whereas the 351 is not.
Nothing a stroker motor can fix!

That link doesn't work. I tried to find it but the website has changed and i cant find anything relevant.

So a 302 is okay sweet. Im checking out a 302 XD fairmont tomorrow.
I wasn't sure about the 351 cos a mate of mine said her friend has a 351 in his XE and he is on his P's the sneaky little bugger.
Thanks again.

Yeah, from memory, the only 351's you could drive on the red P's were the XC Fairmont GXL's as well as Fairlanes/LTD's of the same vintage. Not XD's unfortunately.

302 = OK
351 = NOT OK

you can drive up to a 5Litre pre E-Series on your P's, but unfortunately the 5.8Litres in the 351 are not allowed.... Damn it.
Oh well, I get off them in about 2 months so I can start hunting :)
