so far looking pretty good , need to make some changes , like will need small base dizzy , make a bracket for the power steering pump. will fit a low mount alt. Have to make a cross member for the 350 turbo and then look at the drive shaft.

that's right big block , el xr front. chev was cheaper to build than a ford motor. on the dyno it made 450hp and 457tq at the flywheel so should wake up the falcon.

Re: fitting 383 chevy into EA falcon

yes my buddy plays with these 383 chevs all the time...

about 500hp is the upper limit for the sbc as over 550hp and you start to snap crankshafts! or need expensive billet items that cost more than the engine and car itself.

i did know of a guy who was going to stick a 340 chrysler small block into a EA. but the project never got off the ground. he had the car and the engine but never connected the dots.

HOMER: can do things the right way, the wrong way or the MAX POWER way!
LISA: isnt the max power way the wrong way?
HOMER: yes but, FASTER!
