In Qld biggest cui in TE is 351, Goes on weight of car TE comes in at 3.3/1211kg, 4.1/1216. If said 302 has 351 internals and you have an accident involving pedestrians you're up shit creek. I recommend you steer well clear of these types of comments if 1. You don't want your insurance wiping you for having an unauthorised modified car. 2. Having to pay off a big law suit from said pedestrians lawyers once they find out that your car was effectively illegal and should not have been on the road in the first place. I really hate having to carry on a bit but that's life, As long as the message gets through to build your car legally.

Re: 351 cortina

When mine was engineered, they asked me what size it was. They never checked anything. It was compleately re-engineered on 3 seperate occasions.

I have been told otherwise by a mate who had it done. I read the engineer's report and it was registered as a 302, but it was a 351.
