Looking for a 2V head. Anyone got one for sale? Also just purchased a 5 speed (B/W) for the corty, but not sure on diff ratios for the car. Currently it has a 2.78, with an auto. I will also be installing a turbo and thinking about an EFI kit.
Also, has anybody heard or got a corty that has a 2 door conversion and a roof chop? I'm considering doing this, just doing some preliminary research.
Cheers guys, and a happy new year!!!

i'd look at something like 3.5;1 for the diff..... good acceleration and reasonable highway gearing

3.5's were avaliable from the 4 cyl models, just change the yoke on the front of the diff and throw her in, probably the best all round ratio, as for the 2v head, they are great but are getting harder to find and worth more money everyday, maybe look at dropping in a alloy head x-flow, then if you want to go for efi you can run the complete setup from an injected xe or xf it would be your cheapest option and best results.

cheers Rob.
