We are going to do a V8 conversion to a mates XP ute, and we are wondering if a clevo will fit in there, or would a windsor be easier. we dont want to spend lots of cash, so an injected one is out. a clevo would be prefered, but we are up for options
cheers guys

ill get some pics of my mates xp, its very nice, been fully restored, lowered on 17 inch frs.

we were thinking a 5 litre windsor would be the engine to go for. also do they need any mods to fit them in? or will they bolt in?

Go with the Windsor - the factory bolted them in, thats how easy they go in...you can either do your own mounts or I think Rod Hadfield or dellow have kits.

A Clevo is too wide and you'll be chopping into the spring towers, plus never changing spark plugs. I had an XM 302 years ago and changing plugs was tight but do-able...a clevo no way...
