Thanks mate! Who were you talking to that made brackets for me?

With the previous engine setup which was basically stock plus a set of 1.7 ratio roller rockers it made 312rwhp on 14psi.

The new setup utilises a camtech turbo grind cam, ported & polished heads +port matched inlet manifold, removed balance shaft, a double row timing chain and some custom made multi-layer cometics head gaskets. Hoping for around the 400-420rwhp once its up and running again.

Hating that they sacked him from my work. His advice and expertise were a great help in my build.

Thanks Hozy!

Pulled the dash out of this thing today



This is the nightmare that is staring back at me....

Doubt I will do a dash conversion as i have had the dash painted up black to suit the rest of my interior. I am curious though, what wiring would need to be modified to get it converted over? I have a list of things to do thats as big as my arm so i'm trying to add as little things to it as possible.
