Yep all the h.o stuff will bolt on..Even on a 289...Keep the V belt though or you'll need reverse rotation water pump...

No , the std heads will work.
The distributor gear needs to be compatable with the cam .

Re: oldskool 302w with injection?

Yeah i should have mentioned that i trial fitted the H.o. manifold in my xm and couldn't get the upper to fit :( but im still toying with the idea of using a airgap carb manifold drilled to fit injectors and using the factory efi. system
no i dont want to cut the braces out and use custom ones

Re: oldskool 302w with injection?

The fireing order is differant so either use 351 cam or swap leads and efi connectors to suit...Truck type efi inlets are massive too high...

Re: oldskool 302w with injection?

Hi Brendon
Haven't looked at this board for a while but browsing tonight & saw your question. I currently have just the combo you're asking about running in my XM coupe. It's been on the road for a bit over 2 years now & it's been so much fun to drive, I haven't taken it off to do the cosmetics...
Yes I had to change the shock braces with a custom made bolt-on unit but it clears no worries now & will look good when I finally get around to making it all pretty. I'd post you some photos but I don't know how on this thread & my attention span at this time of night is very limited. Don't know if this is allowed but there's a couple of photos of it under the readers rides section on tffn.net. Look for the post titled XM 5.0 & my same username.
Cheers
Wazza
P.S. Sorry in advance if cross-referencing another site is not allowed...

In WA, if you use modern, post 1975, induction systems etc on you old motor, it will be required to meet the ADR's of the modern components. (so I believe)
