my mate wanted to go the other way years ago, when the 253 commode cot a canary and his XD motor blew up.
the things needed would be similar(i've seen a 351 clevo in a HQ)
the sump bowl on falcons is at the front, cortina sump is further back and may fit you will need custom tailshaft, exhaust,radiator?,gearbox and engine mounts gear shift, speedo cable to name a few

IMO i woulsd either fit 253,308 or if you want a different conversion CRS www.rodshop.com.au has put a LEXUS quad cam alloy V8 into commodes(i considered this) also you can fit the twin turbo 1JZ-GTE 2.5l 6cly lexus soarer motor into commodes(ZOOM mag did it to a WALKY about a year ago)

Ok, first things first, welcome to the forum.

Second, although I don't doubt that this is possible, given that this site has a lot of people on it that would never even consider putting a Ford Engine into a Holden, or a Holden engine into a Ford for that matter, you might find that most people here are against the idea of putting a 250 x-flow into any commodore.

maybe he wants a reliable six cyl car that can do a u turn in a tight street but i would think he would need falcon brakes cos commo ones are crap
or maybe he wants to race XFs and win(lighter car!!)

Throw the commodore away go to your local auctions and pick up an Xe-xf for $50-100 with rego and drive the whole package.
Your going to alot of trouble for nothing

Re: 250 x-flow in a commodore vk

Give the man a break peoples!

First of all I'd compare engine dimensions between the 250 & 202. I think Holden & Ford had a similar 5 speed unit in the 80s, so maybe an adaptor can be used to couple the trans to the motor? As for the 9" diff, u might not have to go that far because I've heard that the std Commodore diffs can take quite a bit of punishment (but yes, we all know that the Ford 9" is supreme ruler! )

Sounds like an interesting, albient unconventional project! Best of luck with it mate.

I have a friend who races a Cortina with a mid-mounted (+ worked) 202, so if he'll put a Holden six in his Ford, I don't see why you can't put a Ford six in your Holden

Re: 250 x-flow in a commodore vk

If you put in a 9" in you will need the trans tunnel modified to take a single piece tailshaft. You normally turf the 2 piece tailshaft when you are going big power and also the 6cyl CV bearing is very weak.

You would probably find the Falcon sump to be a better fit. There is no way a rear sump would work.

Also electric fans would be highly recomended. The Ford 6 is a little on the long side for the commodore engine bay.

I did a hemi 6 into VH wagon with a mate, similar size to the ford. Unless you do all the fabrication yourself you would be dollars ahead spent putting in an RB20/25DET conversion which requires almost no fabrication and would be ten times faster not to mention ligther.
