    Sounds like the op is trying to figure out where he has gone wrong posting pictures up of the extractors to begin with. Unfortunately, I'm computer dumb, so I can't help in that area....Maybe someone else can

    All due respect mate, your postings seem to be a little confusing....You start with one question and immediately move to another thing...ie, look at your previous post...you asked " click on image put in url, come up with img", then no full stop or commas and then "actually 477 hp 460 was aim
    https://www.aussiev8.com.au/holden-v8s/27306-got-old-vl-dynoed.html
    twists body under acceleration, ease the throttle on even at 130 or wheelspin.

    Makes it very difficult to follow

    originally the aim was 460 then after rereading the final outcome it was 477
    sometimes I push the keys - it doesn't come up, are you a English school teacher ?

    it runs 1 3/4 to 3" twins from extractors into gutted cats - another power increase , into 3"y to
    tail , all mandrel bends put together in my workshop - boilermaker
    it rumbled and got the police out of the station to come and see what the noise was coming from but I had already gone into the rsl
    remember I was looking for a v8 harness, I want to build a look alike - this car is a pleasure to drive in every aspect

    @ken statesracing Might be best if you put everything in 1 post, with some sort of seperation between what you are writing....This makes life very easy for everyone, therefore making it easier to get a response from people and you getting an answer you need.

    BTW, not having a dig at you, just trying to make your life easier.

    I tried to put comments after car pics but no room - I don't know why it put up 2 pics
    I have edited some comments/posts on this site , I have 4500 threads and posts on another site as well as hot rod and other motorcycle sites , I don't know why this site is different

    by the way I've built about 70 motors , mostly 308's stroked with ford y block crank,350 steel cranks , holden crank offset with small journal chev rods 327 pistons , 245 valiant rods 350 pistons , I've done so much research and development on the red heads porting i was getting better flow figures than the top head porters in the country . why stay with the red head, back then -the intakes were $150-$180 and extractors plentyfull second hand , the ports on the vp were too big for 308 ci , anyone want tips on porting the red head just let me know -Jeremy wanted to stay with the b castings

    So you are saying that 4-1's on a VL are possible? We all knew that. You can't buy them off the shelf as there is not enough demand for them, but custom, yes. Been done hundreds of times. I've made a few, I've also done a couple of LS swap 4-1's on gen 1's as well. Nothing new here. Although MONST4R will tell you that tri Y's are much better.
