Looking for someone in particular.....

G'day,

I am at the "no engine in the engine bay" stage of my 351W in to EB falcon conversion, and am in need of some advice from people who have done this conversion before.

I have not been able to track anyone down and was just wondering if anyone here knows someone who has done this and can put me on to them (or them on to me).

As far as I know there are only a few cars in the country which have had this conversion so it makes it kind of hard......

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks a lot,
Mike

Re: Looking for someone in particular.....

All that and you havn't asked what you want to know???
The most important thing is to get engine as low as possible...As inlet hits bonnet...Anything els is much the same,just tight fit, sump is different to 5.0.. What inlet are you using ? F150 is too high....

I basically just wanted to chat to someone who has actually done it before.
e.g. sump, mounts, exhaust, their inlet choice.

Re: Looking for someone in particular.....

Why not just put a stroked 5.0 in there, much easier and has plenty of poke.

Stroke a 302 and you're just playing catchup with the LS1 boys. Drop in the 351 block and you could be packing a 408 or bigger. Cubes are king on the street.

Edelbrock makes a lower manifold for the 5.8 which matches their Performer and Performer RPM uppers. Important as keeping EGR emissions is required for the pre AU V8s if you want to remain legal. Not sure if the TFS 351 manifold has the same compliance.
