Gday Troyman, The pulley im starting with should make it 6-7psi, I want to start things of low and see how she goes, then its just a matter of changing pulleys. Cant go to high with the boost on these head gaskets but hopefully a company i know is makeing some MLS head gaskets.

Gday ToranaGuy, its a Pre-crossflow or as they used to be called a log motor it has a Classic Inlines alloy head which is a copy of the iron 2V with some tweaking in the combustion chambers and a few other mods.Its got larger intake and exaust valves port and polish, Yellow Terror roller rockers,cross flow anti-pump up lifters with 186 holden pushrods.Ive put the EF 12 counter weight crank in(had the back of block machined to take EF seal) 200 con-rods with Keith Black forged pistons from a 4.6 L Rover stroker. The block ends up being bored out about 46 thou.The cams from Crow to suit the set up with a Die-Crest Eng Strait cut adjustabe gear drive. Had it all balanced so should be good for 6000 rpm. Its running through a Dominator 2500 stall convertor,full manual C4 to a early Compact Fairlane 8 inch diff,hopefully it runs :lol: The engine bay is looking alright as i resprayed it before putting the motor in,but the paint on the outside is about 10 years old,it still looks okay but realy neads a respray.I had a bit of a hold up with valve gear but should be getting it going in a few weeks. Ill get some video for you's.


Cheers
