Re: V8 EA Conversion WA
I'm pretty sure the 351 will have to be on gas to be legal, due to emissions, but the 302 ought to be OK with the Holley.
For an EA you WILL need an engineer's certificate, an EB you can just drop it in and ring the licensing centre as EBs came out with a v8.
You'll need to organise an exhaust.
Other than that, the front springs will need to be changed I should think, and that's all I can think of.
Personally, I'd get the EB and stick the 302 in that - much less hassle with the cops. If you need workspace or tools, I'll volunteer my shop floor and tools :s6:
This is the kind of stuff I do for fun, so will be very interested to see how you go!
