Hey Kelv if your looking for a good mechanic who knows their fords you can try a bloke by the name of Dave Sheedy, he works at P.R.E just near Padget area. Iv never met him myself but have heard of positive feedback of him. If your gonna go N/A have you ever looked in to the Jim Mock kits?

Regards Jared

Low 14 second quarter is pretty quick dude, not aiming too high?
Dont be disappointed if it doesnt get there, its a horrible thing to go to the drags and go slower than you hoped for, almost a bad disease :shock:
Either a manual with diff gears as a minimum, or an auto with a 3000rpm + convertor with diff gears

Man taking that much of the head u will come into timing chain problems and u definatly dont want that.

Id take 10 thou off the head and 10 Thou off the block and thats it and use the highest comp pistons off the shelf u can find.
