engine conversion Qs (another one)

ok here is the deal


351w block into I6 AU ...

Q1: are the 351 engine mounts the same as 302 or at least the bolt pattern position in teh same or similar spot?

Q2: AU 302w use same subframe as I6?

Q3: struttower clearances .. weill a 351 with 2" extra deck hight fit into an AU engine bay .. i have come to belive it fits into an EL, even thou the EL engine bay is tighter.

Q4: sump clearance, i am going to go with a high volume sump system, however will it be able to clear cross members?

any other suggestion or issues please tell

Re: engine conversion Qs (another one)

No 1 = same posi same mount. 2 = don't think so mainly crosmember. 3 = must have some as in XP the clearance is tight as a fish's a$$hole so with low type semi strut towers clearance must be good as the clearance with 02's is heeps (compared to XP anyway...). 4 sumps is easy to make/modify so is not a prob. 5 Just do it, fargin awesome specially with 408 stroker dart block twin turbo's and 2800 HP, must be done too many brand X wankmobiles already about......

Q2 Duno ??? Check at wreckers etc..I guess just the mounts are different..

Re: engine conversion Qs (another one)

sounds good, do ya have the engine, and are seriously contemplating this, or just thinking out loud.

coz if your actually doing it, good on you i'd love to see this kind of conversion. only ever heard of cars that had "been done years ago and are no longer around" so there arent any pics or anything to see it....

great to see someone doing something different

Re: engine conversion Qs (another one)

yes its not just thinking around its for real ...

i got my order in for a 351W D2 bcasting, which is not a dart block as that would be too exy for my purpose, but being a D2 casting the nickel content is already higher and hence a stronger block. the sleeves will also stay fairly standard, as this engine will not eb boosted .. i wanna keep it street legal and road registered (as crazy as it sounds). also it wont be a 408 stroker, i will just go with the "mildly" 392. to get it road reg it will run on LPG full time, twin throttle gas research setup, twin mixers etc. as for cam and head it will remain a secret (and yes i do know what i want and what i get). compression ratio is expected to be between 12.5:1 and 13.0:1. target is 700HP NA and or 10.99 1.4mile run. once finished the car will be making its rounds at cars hows and street shootouts in QLD ...

no fake but reality ... hopefully finished bt march next year
