Re: 302w in a xf

Easy, I did the same thing with a ZL and a 302W & C4 fully engineered. Eventually I needed more power and replaced 302W with 351W. To the untrained eye difference is hard to tell, performance was totally different! Similar results could be achieved with stroker 302W (or maybe a stroker 351W!!!)

The engine mount mounts ( the steel mount that is mounted to the chassis ) was from a XD/XE V8. The rubber mounts are std V8. The C4 crossmember and mount bolts straight in. No chopping required!

Sorry no I don't have the 302W, but they are a dime a dozen. If your mate is pretty handy, it should all come together pretty well. For the windsors, you do not have to modify the firewall where the heater pipes come out, they just fit nicely ( if you where putting a cleveland in it may be a problem ). You will just need to take the time to adapt from 6 to 8.

Mount the chassis mounts on a plate and move the engine 1.5 to 2 inches forward and you wont have to modify the heater pipes or fire wall for clearance , the xf fire wall is different shape to the eairler xd/xe falcons .
