yeah i know you mentioned it, but is is worth putting a lumpy or more of a mild cam?
Totally depends on what you're wanting to do mate.
You'll need to find out whether or not its got standard static compression before you go making up your mind with a cam.
okay ill look into that
I just saw this on boost. 202 Block. Rebuilt, Only Needs Head To Finish. - Boostcruising
Im building a VK brock replica and i was going to get a 308 in it but due to the new P plate laws i have to keep with the old 202, so im working it. So far i have done pacemaker extractors 2.25" and sports exhaust system, Redline torquer 2 intake manifold with a 450 holley carby set up, redone valve springs, new belt kit, new mild cam, timing gears and roller rockers all up it has set me back around $1500 (doing most of the work my self with mates help) and now shes running like a dream. With those extractors it sounds like a 308 any way.
Doubt you'll get a reply mate, that was alittle over 4 years ago.
shave the head get the comp up around 9.8-1 or even 10-1, give the ports a good scratch up, good size cam, atleast 220 @50, port matched manifolds', torker manifold, good extractors and exhaust, 500 2barrel holley, (but get it tuned properly) and you would be up around if not just over the 200hp mark,
Macca97 why not a small 4 barrel I doubt anyone here cares about the old holden 6 the last hot 6 I built mums camry would blow it to the weeds I'm still going on the ek I might have another try.
390 4barrel would be alot better, but i usually put in the cost of a manifold or adapter plate, 4bbl manifold, cost alot more, and its pretty easy just to use an adapter plate, to a varijet manifold or find 1 on ebay,
i still and will always play with the old 6's, probably why i have one in my daily (hj ute) and about 12 of them sitting in the shed
