possibility of 302C -> AU 5.0W update in an XC ?

Posted a similar question in Aussie falcons recently, and thanks to Ghia5L for the information, but I'm kind desperate to get some more advice now as I've spotted a car I'd like to sink my pennies into.

Does anyone know if it would be realistic to put a newish efi windsor engine into an XC with a 302C ?

Ghia5L mentioned that people have put clevo's into newer falcons, does anyone know if that requires a boatload of engineering, or is it mainly a bolt-in affair (Mechanically speaking, I can handle the electronics)

I'd love peoples comments, educated or not.

Regards
Tim

Send RaceCraft a PM (I found his post in the above link, he's talking about a 351 clevo that's in his EB)

Sounds interesting. What was it that gave you the trouble, actually fitting the engine or making it legal (eng cert, adr's etc) ?

I would imagine the authorities would be happy with you putting in an engine with better economy and fewer emissions.

Apart from the electronics I can't see too many problems.Things to look at include engine mounts ,bell housing/starter motor radiator & exhaust.

It was the ADRs and the eng cert the main one was the brakes if you can belive that one (the XC had 4wd brakes) and the fuel evaporation system and a few other things that i dont quite remember of hand. At that point it had already cost me a packet so it sits under the cover in the work shop until i can be bothered to do somthing with it.

Yep you'll have to convert to unleaded including the smaller fuel filler.Can be bought cheap at wreckers though, including all other epa stuff from wrecked latter models...
