351 into EBII

G'day people,

This is my first post on the forum (been watching for a while).

My question is: Is it possible to drop a 351/302 Clevo or Windsor in to a EBII?

If yes, what sort of expense/work/parts are involved.

Would dropping this sort of engine in be worth the effort, even if it was a injected 351 windsor?

Thanks,
ScoopED

Re: 351 into EBII

The only way(if it fitted) to run a 351 clevo would be to run it on LPG. Basically, you have to run the engine with full ADR compliance of your year model car. Because the clevo is at least 20 years old, it's virtually impossible. A 351 windsor is wider, taller and heavier than the 302, so you will have a few problems getting that to fit too. Best bet is to buy a EB2 with the 302 windsor factory fitted and modify this.

Re: 351 into EBII

As there is not much room left with a Windsor in one of these doubt if you`d get a Cleveland in there. If so getting pipes etc on it would be a big drama I`d say

Re: 351 into EBII

There is an ED XR8 with a 351 Windsor in it in Wagga.
There is still good room around teh engine.
The donk came out of an F truck.

The only visible mod was a scoop on the bonnet, he used one off a Nissan Patrol, looks a little like a Shaker.

Re: 351 into EBII

I spoke to an engineer today, he said there should be no worries with getting a mod plate for a 351W EFI with cats and all pollution gear running a c4 auto.

I thought size wise the 351W was only a little taller than a 302W.

???

Would be a cool conversion.... Bulk grunt, 1550 odd kg. The weight difference between a 302 and 351 should not be massive, so xr8 springs should do.

By the way,

I'm in QLD, so laws might not be as tough as some states??????

Re: 351 into EBII

It would be much easier to just get a 5litre EB or if you still plan to put a 351 in there it would be easier again with a late model EFi one from the states, but I would say you would have huge drama's with a Clevo in there.

Re: 351 into EBII

I did think that a clevo was out of the question, apart from its size, it is wayyyyyyyy to costly to inject.

The reason I want a old 351W is that the older non pollution cars have nice big ports, compared to todays 302 counterparts. This will be a street/strip car.

Also more room for stroking in the future. And injection manifolds are all over the place.

Thats why the guy with the Black one had to put the Scoop in the bonnet.

Re: 351 into EBII

That's true about QLD rego laws. The amount of s...boxes that I see with QLD plates on when I drive around through the day is amazing, and my brother in-law brought the biggest one down here when he moved. I was fixing the bastard on a daily basis. Thankfully the man with the hammer inside the engine finally gave up, and it went to its final resting place.
