Lightbulb 5.4 litre V8

Hi guys, just a thought.

How hard would it be to fit the BA 5.4 Liter V8 in to an E series?

got $11,000 to buy the engine. Cheaper to buy a new car if you ask me.

I thought the current 5.4 engine still had the windsor block with a stroker crank and new heads. The American 4.6/5.4 have a wider V and therefore will not fit into a E series falcon.

I have a friend who brought a 347 stroker crank and rods for a windsor. I think they were around the $2000 mark.

I have not seen the engine bay in the new BA falcon but from I understand there is more space between the towers to fit such an engine in.

66 Mustang, your thinking of the AU T-Series Falcon, which used a stroker Windsor, but was 5.6L.

The modular V8s have the same V angle as the windsors (90 degree), and id put money on the 5.4 and 4.6 DOHCs being able to fit in an E-Series engine bay without any kind major mods. Im pretty sure the AU/BA didnt require any engine bay modification to fit the 5.4s, but from what I understand theres as little as 3mm of clearance between the heads and inner guard with the DOHC 5.4.....

The Boss engines will not fit due to their manifold height ( hence the bonnet buldge on the XR8's ) but I would think the 220 would fit quiet nicely

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted
