Engineers certificate??

For anyone that has done the CFI > MPI conversion, do you need to get an engineers certificate or is it not required? And how are your cars running now after the conversions??

As far as I know you don't need an engineer's certificate because EA's came in both CFI and MPI.
But if you were to drop a windsor in your EA then you would need a certificate because EAs never came with a V8 option.

Normality is the most common form of insanity

hehehehehe, sorry not my problem, i can write one in a year, hehehehee.

And no im pretty sure u dont, since the EA came out with both engines, to my knowlege u dont have too. So long as the motor has the same code as the motors out of ea its legal. If u put in a 4L then yes, or a 5L, u need to do some work and then see an engineer but 3.9CFI to 3.9MPI is no problem (very very sure)

Its my dream in a few years to re-make an EA GT, get a 5L out of a EL falcon, work the tits off it, stroke to 351, get a nice EA, buy a EB GT interior.... u get the idea, its alot of hard work and is very expensive but im sure it will be worth it :)

just a minor correction

hey EAofWAR, don't mean to be picky here but the 5L (302 Windsors) out of an EF get stroked to a 347 not a 351.

on a side note, i remember seeing an ED for sale a while ago that had a supercharged 347 stroker in it, $19,000 it was going for - what a beast that would have been!!!

To 347??? that new to me, fair enough, i was thinking of doing it myself though, give me a reason that a 5L windsor cant go to 351? If it cant i suppose ill just get a 347 badge, GT 347! least its original hey! albeit a little try hard.
