Gday bud, got referred to this from another forum, first off sounds like a pretty decent setup good luck with it, second and more important was wondering if you could go through what you have done as in parts used and work done.

I ask because I have a 351W that came out of my old XF work ute, got written off earlier this year, anyhow after seeing the blower on it you have inspired me hehe so I am looking at similar setup in an early model, possibly even a muzzi. Need to sell the AU XR6 ute first coz I don't have the room what with the 2 cars now and a tow truck, but am looking at possible builds and you saying that you built it with a blower in mind at a later stage got me interested in your setup.

Thanks in advance
Stef

G'day Stef,

This whole article sort of goes through what I have done and the parts used. Did you want a total list of parts or something?

Cheers,
Pete.

Ye interested in what bits you put in, especially after i saw the blower I thouhg tthat would look very neat under a Muzzi bonnet or early Falcon with the injection manifold setup. If it's easier you can email but probly easier in here I guess, I did try to read it all but I think it would be easier for everyone if you put a list of bits and mods in the one post lol.

Thanks
Stef

Any long term evaluation results Pete? Have been watching the ute's progress for a long time and have a similar setup in a XC.

Nope, Sold the ute and the engine is going into an EB. I'll continue on when we put the engine into that. At the moment I'm fighting with comp over their poxy cams that can't handle the dizzy gears that they themselves tell you to use!?!
I have replaced the ute with an XG van with an EL 4.0 in it. Watch this space....Ive had it up to here(touching the ceiling) with the poxy six cylinder so you may find I'll be talking about World 400+ cube crate with the CHI heads off my Cleveland going in there along with a Lentech 4R70W. :wink:

Give us some details of your XC while were on the subject?

Cheers,
Pete.

Yes. Most of what I have mentioned applies to yours too.
I can help you with a crank encoder wheel when the time comes.
You will have(much)more trouble with bonnet clearance.
AU front engine dress will require a different approach because of the AU 5.0L integral pulley/Balancer issues mentioned in the article...you may need a custom crank pulley and/or depth changes to the bracketry.
AU EEC/harness etc will all work and of course you'll need to make your own 351 type Cam encoder.

Pete.

Hi xr9
i have done a 5l conversion into an xg , was just curious what model hoses you used for your top and bottom radiator hoses. i used standard eb ones with my xg radiator, appears to be a very messy setup at the moment with the header tank

i am keen to return to standard xf type radiator without the header tank and be able to fill the radiator directly.

Hi Jason,
I used std Cleveland hoses. ie; Top XA-XB type without the angled water neck.
The bottom hose was XE/ZK cleveland I think.
