    I wouldn't call it close but is a nice drive, my favourite part is the winding road into Swansea.

    Called in and had a chat with a tuner in Hobart today, and ended up purchasing a VCM11 camshaft and a road blaster 3000-3200 stall converter.

    That'll go well. Got a roadblaster in mine, very happy with it - had a larger cam though (probably a little too big).

    Hey utel67

    I really don't want to purchase a kit from overseas, can I buy a rebuild kit of a local place or can you supply a kit.

    Be sure to do all the lifters, timing chain set, valve springs, pushrods etc when the cam goes in

    I hope it goes better than well haha I'm sure it will, the tuner said the roadblaster is a good converter I'm sure I will be happy with it.

    you're getting the trans rebuilt too aren't you? Get some upgrades fitted when they overhaul it, i believe some upgrade parts are already fitted from factory when the trans has a V8 in front of it.

    When you buy the cam buy the rods to match the cam. Mace Engineering will set you up with a cam and HD push rods. Do you have memcal? Mace will sell you a chip as well matched to the cam. Then you can dyno it once you get all te upgrades done. With the Mace package it will be close, tune wise.

    You might want to consider a 4L65e then. Other members would be able to say for sure though whether the 60e can be built strong enough to handle boost.
