347/ 302 its all the same engine.just different stroke , should be able to put it in blindfolded, much easier than a cleveland or big block

Re: v8 into xg ute

depends on the condition, there is a supra 5 speed conversion u can get if u want to never worry about the box again, the exhausts will be easy as well, u will have to get the right waterpump to work with radiator and also upgrade the fuel lines.

regarding fit up search for XF V8 conversion as they are same shell, i noticed in of those threads that the windsor fits easily with no heater pipe probs as the cleavo has.
