Dropped the Crossflow into the engine bay for a test fit and it's a go! It set down using the stock motor mounts, and clears the shock towers and export brace easily. I can even get the Monte Carlo bar back on, I think.

More updates on my Crossflow webpage!

Looks good so far, "Dare to be Different"

I hope everything works out ok. I wanted to put the 3.8 Supercharged V-6 from my SC into Becky's convertible, just to be different, but she said NO!

Can't wait until you get it on the road.

66: That it very cool! Is that the Head and intake that I read some very early posts from a guy from down under was going to hook you up with?

Actually the crossflow requires it's own unique block, so I had two of them shipped over from OZ along with a crateful of parts.

There's another guy who's building a 250 with an Aussie 250 2V head. That head fits our blocks and is a huge improvement over the log intake.
His looks like this:

Think the intake ports are big enough?

Go to the Ford Six Performance Forums and check out the Aussie Six Tech board. Post a note to JD. He's helping other guys get stuff from OZ. He's the one who rounded up all my stuff.
