Thumbs up 351 clevo in an e-type.

Hi,

I thought you guys might be interested in this: I just installed a gem reconditioned 351 in my XF, and when I got the emissions test done for the engineering certificate the motor not only passed ADR37 for the XF, but also exceeded the requirements of ADR37A, the engineer told me that would allow the motor to be fitted up to an ED falcon.

That's with thermoquad and extractors and stock electronic dizzie.

just to let you know.

What do the RTA (whatever in your state) say about this? They are the ones who will have the final say.

There is a Yellow EB with a blown 351C getting around the local area and to meet emissions they had the run the car on LPG.

Used to be Mustang1966coupe.

In south oz you must run gas on XF's onwards if ya wanna drop in a clevo.

My car is powered by FORD 5.8
To avoid breathing difficulties during hard acceleration, it is recommended that female passengers should remove all tight fitting undergarments before entering the vehicle!

clean clevo

This is the ACT, where rego requires the car to pass the engineers inspection, including the emissions test for ADR compliance.

The engineer was surprised how clean the motor was, but bear in mind it is newly rebuilt with maybe 60km all up.
