351 Windsor in a ED

G'day peoples, new here so be gentle :s5
anyway was wondering if anyone has or knows someone who's fitted a 351 Windsor to an ED, just wanted some details on how it's done.

Cheers

Haha! I was expecting someone would say that.
That was the alternative if fitting a 351 was too hard but i'm not sure what to stroke it to.
There's been so many conflicting reports that wether or not stroking to 347ci is a good thing and to 331ci is safer option.
Still if fitting a 351 is not difficult one could stroke it to 454ci!!!
not that I have the money for that, though no harm in dreaming. :s6:

You MAY have to run a moulding on the bonnet much like a VN Commodore for the extra height..

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

it has been done...but its an engineering challenge. Height is your main enemy. IMO ... stroke the 302 if you 'only' want 347/351 type capacity. If you want to stroke the 351 then it may be worth the effort.

Yep Ive seen an EA with a 351w it and also know of a 351c in an EB. It(the EA) was on gas only so it didn't go very well. Headers were(amazingly) off the shelf XW-Y 1 5/8" Try-Y's(probably another reason why it didn't go well) but is a good example of what you can use at short notice.
Height is your biggest hurdle of course. Mainly because if you're building a reasonably tough engine the intakes begin to get very high.
I'm building a 391w for my XE ute and it won't fit under the XF bonnet I have....Edelbrock Victor 5.8 EFI intake is 12" high.
Luckily the upper plenum is narrow enough that I can just fit a shaker on it with just a smidge sliced out of the bottom right hand side and it still sits central to the bonnet. Headers will be easier to fabricate on EA up Falcons than my XE. I'll be using 1 3/4" primaries in a 4 into 1 configuration in my ute. Obviously 1 3/4" is the minimum for a stroker 351w.
BTW you realise the only way to get over 435ci is with a Ford racing or World Products siamese bore block?....lotsa $$$$$.

The way I see it; if bonnet clearance is the only real concern.....Do it!

Pete.

Ford did it. It's at the Discovery center.

I know of an EB with one, and of cause the Arrow has one in it taken out to 392 cubes. As has been said, bonnet height is your main enemy, the rest would be quite straight forward.

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

I'm one not for scoops except for the shaker.
Surely there must be some intakes that might be shorter..what about the Cobra intake from the '93 Mustangs?
