    I'm going to purposely NOT look, cos if I do, there's no turning back hahaha nah, I think I'll be content with either using the LY6 block or even using my L98 block and go 402ci.

    And people say I'm living the dream haha :spot on:


    Been looking at 2000cc injectors and twin in-tank pumps. Guess I'll be doing the fuel system first up.

    But 7 litres.... there's just something so magic about that number. You go 402 and you'll always wish for those 25 lost cubes!

    Cheers mate!



    No dramas at all mate, I'll let you know when they come out. They're 1150cc so would that work for you?



    Hahaha I get what you mean, but apparantly if I go 427ci I will be losing too much cylinder wall thickness and might cause headaches when I shove exta boost down its throat?





    UPDATE

    Dropped the headlights off the other week to get re-worked with chrome shrouds and now I'm 100% happier with the result. Has a bit more of a "stock" headlight look so doesn't look overly different to the general public, but keen eyed observers will notice the extra projector.

    If you want your headlights modded, I can't reccomend Brett from Wired Right Customs enough. Top notch quality and brilliant to deal with.

    The headlights look great, I've been thinking of getting a set through Wired Right as well, look like really good quality.

    Im sure its been said before but everything about this car is perfect.

    Been a while since I've updated this thread, almost forgot all about it until someone on facey reminded me. Anyone know the best way to upload videos?

    Anyway, got myself some new wheels. Loved the BBS's but wanted a change.


    Koya SF04s 20x10 front and 20x11 rears. No 8.5s here!

    Also decided to update the interior a bit. Started to get over the triple Atari gauges so dicked around with the GTS gauges. Bit of a pain to wire up the last couple of wires but all in all, not a bad way to spend a sunday arvo.

    And last but not least, spontaneously brought a AI 3L surge tank. Looks like I'll be going down the twin bosch 044 path.

    Load to YouTube, copy the link details and paste them here using the Insert Video icon (looks like film and is next to the icon for posting pics).

    Liking the new rims.

    Hey mate,

    Looking at purchasing the Exact same wheels.

    Any chance you would mind sharing the offsets and whether or not you have gone with Concave or Deep Concave?
