    We did it years ago The old RDP ute , Factory clevo block from the wreckers , C302B heads , 2 x 88mm Turbos 1273 RWHP . It went on to run 8.50 That factory block never let us down . And i can verify it was every bit a factory clevo block.. Was grouted to welch plugs . The only thing in the block was some fretting of the main caps @ 8200 rpm That same day I got to take that car ontrack for powercruise .

    XG Falcon bellhousing locating pins

    They MUST be fitted . They are there to align and centre the trans to the motor .

    I use that on transmission cases . Comes up nice and really looks very similar to the alloy in parts that are clean as original. And it lasts nice

    Can sandblast , then use VHT or Duplicolour alumium paint looks pretty natural. Vapour blasting is good and can leave natural

    FMX dipstick?

    I like the FMX's , they are a good trans . Back in 2004 I put one in a mates car more as an experiment , with a 502 stroker, 550 HP , 580 ftlb.. It's still there to this day

    No the factory bells are only for Pan fill cases . If you were to go an aftermarket bell like a JW they fit up to the pump bolts so fit either case

    No , not at all .. With aluminium heads weight is basically same as an all iron clevo.. 400HP lol , not hard to make 6-700. Really all you need is a block , by time you get a good set of rods , might as well get a crank as well , Hello 500+ cubes I use the factory bells and C4's The factory bells are for Pan fill type cases

    Just replied your PM . I did a 400 in a Bronco years ago. It had the Bigblock trans pattern, the block had been drilled and used normal 351 mounts . All this trouble for a 400 , look towards a 460
