351w + GM Style HEI??
Does anyone know if a GM style HEI unit will fit under the hood for this project? (65+351w) I'm not too worried about it hitting the intake, as I'm running the stock Bronco intake for now, but the hood clearance has gotta be close, it looks pretty tall from all the pictures I've seen.
I would have used the stock electronics for spark, but it has the elusive computerized Duraspark III which is way more hassle than it's worth if I could get it to work at all.
For $50 shipped, it seems like it would be worth a try, but if somebody else has crashed their hood on one of these units already, then I wouldn't waste my money in the first place. (they're all over eBay, search 351w HEI distributor)
**FYI** The unit is roughly (from an eBay member I emailed) 9.5" from the block mounting face to the top.
1965 Coupe, 351w + T5 -------- 1978 280z, 4.6 DOHC + T45
