    vk 304 vs 6 bangger on gas vs stato
    This is my vk berlina build started life as a 202 then injected 5.0 then carby 304 now ls1with 4k stall turbo 700 3.45 gears n full spool.. detaild engine bay many man hours an late night in the shed, everything u see was done by my self (good work for a fork lift driver I say)...

    Brought it for $2000 with no reg or rwc from a chic up in daylsford with not a spot of rust on it I serched for 6 months for a clean vb vc vh vk , next day took it in for rwc but was told had a cracke head n block so out came the 202 an in with a hed n cam 5.0.. always wanted to run carby so brought a holly 650 an hi rise kept runninh into trouble timeing, idleing, fuel issues an it just wouldnt run proply an practicllygave up on it..

    Then amate called with a cheap ls1 motor loom n comp $1000 and I jumped on it couple days later mate was selling hisfully built t700 an 4k converter to fit rite up to a ls1 for $1000 jumped on it prity pumped on how cheap I got everything hole conversion was under $4000 :)

    So yea thats where its at atm but Not sure on the plans from now, was thinking nos an tunnel rams or the edelbrock ram style manifold but un sure yet, tho id love to get it regoed as a ls1 an cruz it on weekends or even a summer time daily :)
