Re: 351 into EF

I believe it has been done. You will have to use a windsor though as a clevo will more than likely give you clearance problems. Ford built a single EA GT with an injected 351w, it was a tight fit but do-able.

The XF is gone Injected 351W looking for a new home.......

Re: 351 into EF

Too many complications fitting one.

When you say doner, is it EFI? Is it a Clevland or WInsor?

It's easier to spend the money on a worked 5.0L!!

Re: 351 into EF

we messured it up before 351 windsor fine but we went for the 347 stroker option for legal easyer over the pits.

at most might need a small bonnet scoop depending on the intake if its efi ex f100 those intakes sit higher that eb-au engines.

Re: 351 into EF

i have heard that the heads on a 351c are much higher than the windsor, so you get clearance probs between the suspension, but i cant remember where i heard it so i have no idea how correct it is.

Re: 351 into EF

There is an EB getting around with a 351 clevo, running straight gas and a full touring car kit.

I'd still go for the 302 windsor, as you can get decent horsepower out of them.

What was the donor car?

'67 Mustang V8 4sp... what fun to drive!

Re: 351 into EF

the donor car is a zj fairlane i think... a mate at workowns it still drivable but too much work (rust) needs repairing for roadworthy so he said he'd sell me the car complete for $1000. i think the engine is a windsor

Re: 351 into EF

If it's a ZJ it's a cleavland.

IMO, I wouldn't bother. Easier to modify a 5.0.
