G'Day Dunga;
I just got my hands on a 351C which i am rebuilding as a 383 stroker. I was thinking of putting it into a TE cortina. How much drama was it getting the car engineered for registration?Any info would be appreciated..

Cheers.

you wont get a te enginerred with a 351 now days. due to power to weight ratios
if you get a 302c black block out of a xd xe falcon enginerrs approvial is possible. you need to run standard intake manifold, standard carter carby, and standard factory air cleaner. all pollution gear must be used also (carbon canister) etc.
my advice get a 302 block and put your 351 internals in it no-one will know the difference. good luck. expenicive exercise but the end result is worth it. will put a smile on your face everytime you bury the right foot.
