    Will be interesting to see this progress, definitely a different path than the usual. Will the 250 sump and pickup bolt on to the 292 or will it need a custom sump for steering clearance?
    A minute of thinking can save hours of doing

    M-6.9, do those old-school-cool exhaust manifolds..
    .. run internal dividers to separate the port flow - in the fat/siamesed sections?

    AFAIR, the Holden X2/S/GTR equivalents did.

    Ok M-6.9, I'm sure you'll ensure the 'sleeper' look won't compromise the breathing..
    ..in the fitting of the air-cleaner base base over the throttle body air entry, or the filter/air entry flow potential..
