any cleveland AU's about?

Just wondering if anyone has put a cleveland in an AU, or scoped it out, and know of any obstacles.

Allmost imposible with E.P.A & R.T.A. Unless you went full L.P.G gas.They generally want polution/unleaded/clean? motors in them now..Easier to fit 5.8 Windsor import E.F.I..Or buy one from a F150 here..Convert speed density to maf latter or sooner for clarence...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Shouldn’t be too difficult….Just use the EECIV 351C from my ute! Wanna buy it? The plenum design combined with the lower deck height (compared to 351W) of the Cleveland would serve this conversion well. Chop down an old points dizzy to make it the CID sensor and adapt a 5.0 crank encoder ring to fit the Cleveland balancer. Ive dummied up a Cleveland with the serpentine drive off a Windsor and I reckon it’s doable with ally spacer behind the Windsor pump. This allows the block bypass to work.
Modify some Pacemaker headers to fit. Maybe use some of the new CHI ally heads to shave off some weight and make some more power.
Don’t worry if it’s legal or not just bloody do it!

BTW if you don’t do it….it will certainly happen to an ED Falcon soon enough.

Pete.

modern clevelands

so there are 351 factory efi set-ups ... what vehicles are they from (how much is yours worth XR9ute; send PM if you want).

I suppose the ol' thermoquad set-up won't cut it?

How is the engine bay and mounts for clearance in the AU?

Might make a decent supersprinter, or drags, anyway where rego is not so important, and make a bit more power the windsor cars

I think you can get throttle body injection to suit Clevos, but I think if you want MPFI it will have to be custom?

Yep, you can get one of those Holley ProJection setups!

For real top end you can run a Hi po carb inlet [Spyder]and drill some injector holes,some manifolds have undrilled forgings for just this and make up a fuel rail from efi set up.A 90* bend with efi throttle body and the rest from efi set up from 5 Ltr...
