    As it sits right now here's what we're dealin with.

    VL Group A block, 30thou over
    Grout filled to bottom of core plugs,
    CSR billet 3.750" stroker crank,
    Lunati Pro 5.850" billet I-beam rods w/ ARP2000 rod bolts,
    CP forged pistons w/ low tension cp rings
    13.3:1 comp,
    Camtech solid roller custom grind on crane billet 265/275 @ 50thou
    Crane Ultra-Pro .904" roller lifters,
    C.O.M.E Racing alloy heads, Ported by Flow tested cylinder heads.
    Stainless valves, Double springs, titanium retainers, 10° locks,
    YT platinum roller rockers
    Rollmaster gold vernier adjustable timing set,
    Bullet timing cover
    Romac balancer,
    External -12 oil drain at rear of head to sump,
    High Energy pro bracket pan w/ Moroso pickup to -16,
    Moroso single stage external oil pump,
    Custom oil pump block off and crank mandrel,
    Moroso 4 vane vac pump,
    CSR electric water pump.

    I have had a Pro Systems E85 carb built, but here's the questions I have running through my mind and decisions i need to make. Harrop or pro paw? Will the come heads work or should I be ringing Higgins/Torque Power? Do I put the 275/285 114lsa stick in now with plans for gas later or continue running the current 108lsa brick chomper in case i dont even bother spraying? Crank trigger will be the go given the RPM its likely to see, and I really like the thought of the new Haltech Elite VMS with LS coils too. Alot.

    Lucky there's plenty more work to do and time to save coin before I have to fork out and commit!

    Keep what you have cam is good, forget the nitrous get a dominator pro paw and run e85 or race fuel.. Call Pete at HPE regarding the heads but its doing OK for what it is, you could make 700 with minor changes and tune so try that 1st before ripping the engine apart..

    I concur with Paul. You haven't driven the car/engine combo' as yet and don't have a handle on how it performs or reacts.
    You will need to set the car up and maximise the current setup, before looking for more power.

    Might find it has more than enough already

    Hi mate. The parts list sounds insane! Just curious. With a big cam like this , and spring pressures , do you have to back off the rockers if its not driven ""regularly"?

    I'd just turn the engine over once in a while...

    Yep! So you could imagine my excitement when I saw it was for sale.

    It took a bit of coaxing from a mate (who's on here) to build up the courage to go have a look and penny up, especially considering what I had already bought for the other motor, and that the wedding day was just around the corner. In reality it was a terrible financial decision but I dare say I would have regretted letting it go.

    Im already doing everything else the hard way, so at least i've made one part of the equation a bit easier

    Good work mate. None of this stuff is cheap. Give your wife a big hug and don't forget to take her for a run once it hits the road!

    [QUOTE=PSI 304;748285]From all accounts I can find it appeaes to be the 'single pipe' oil mod. I'll be honest I havent torn anything apart yet to see the extent.

    Cheers mate.

    Well blokes the project continues to move forward. Inch by inch, day by day. Got the motor down to a short, and yep... vegemite, bore pitting, stuck lifters. The whole 9 yards.
    So i've just been stealing an hour here and there in the shed, either on the gerni or the wire wheel stripping, degreasing, cleaning something. Not going to a huge effort here. Just going to clean it as best I can and seal it back up. Its only an inspection donk so all care required is either on back order or no longer available

    Gave the old girl a couple of coats of Dulux wash n wear and she looks way better than she'll ever go!
    Just need to grab a new water pump, clean out the sump, spruce up the intake, and give them a couple of coats before I go about actually screwin it back together with new gaskets.

    Plucked the welsh plugs out this mornkng before my afternoon shift and flushed all the grease, sediment and rust out of the jackets. Any special tips or tricks to putting the new ones in? Special sealants or anything recommended? Or is it as simple as tapping them in with a socket?

    Also lastly... trying to figure out how much of this vacuum spaghetti I actually need to keep?

    Seems totally rediculous! Struggling to make sense of it all lol. Any pointers to help a carb n00b out would be awesome!

    Have great weekend fellas!

    Love the v/b/c/h chromed bumper, an angry carb engine..

    That’s pretty cool, love the two tone ones or all grey.

    The turbo 350 will last but watch the temps. Mine lasted over 10 years with over 100 passes in the 10s.
    Transbrake will kill it straight away and need a good cooler on it and maintain the service on them.

    Keep on the updates.
