    Loving the consistent updates (even if I don't check regularly)
    250/260 rwhp is not unreasonable with your manifold. A good 304 should acheive that.

    Aim for torque...as long as it's reliable & sounds great don't worry about numbers.

    Some of the best/fun street cars I've built had 'low' dyno numbers yet the most enjoyable.

    Thanks, yeah don't know whether anything engine wise will happen in the short term.
    Definitely if zero deck the block or/ stroke will be a different block so can have originally/ freahened up matching #, engine wise.

    Definitely . Would love to get to rev a bit more, but am a great fan of heaps of low down torque .

    Thanks.

    If you mean the 185 badges, no .

    On the strut tower there's an airbag one and I think emissions.
    There is a HSV one on the radiator support rail along with a tyre placard and coolant warning.
    I can take a photo tomorrow .
    It's sort of out (mostly under the carport) ready for an even earlier start tomorrow ( leave at 4 am ,, using tomorrow as I'm picking up staino flat bar and timber for my railing of my deck.

    More compression, more valve lift, and a small duration increase. Extra cubes optional.
    That should lift low end torque drastically

    Thanks, yeah, absolutely no idea which/ what way , if any I'm going, except a waist to just get retuned with the starr manifold.
    This is mainly because my future employment in 8 or so months is up in the air, not to mention too many other things to spend money on.

    Would definitely love to at least get more heads , work them ( whether I'd Deck them to the max is a mute point atm ) , tie bar roller lifters , different cam , then the manifold , and stall.

    Can't believe with all my willingness to do bolt on mods , I'm not so willing to do a manual conversion ( t56 would be outstanding ).

    Anyway being used as they should and a long day today ( up at 3.30 am ) , ( a stinker of a day),grinding aircraft cancer in the morning , pick up staino flat bar and then timber, back home , cut and fix mounting blocks for railing posts.

    Then down to the lake foreshore to see a great band , beautiful evening, and a few beverages .

    Here are the photos of the placards in the engine bay.



    Using it today , just cruising to work and errands ( absolutely loved it) , (effortless torque ), people look, people comment, not that it's the reason for using or owning ( but still feels great) !!!!
