I got the F***wit "WANKER" from Mick Webbs Ebay site send me an abusive reply because I asked this question about the $1500 GT40P heads they had for sale in Ebay
Quote:
"Are these the CNC ported heads or stock AU V8 type heads?"
, I asked this question because anyone that knew about Ford V8s would know what I was talking about.

I got this reply (Copied from Ebay messages)
Quote:
Item: Ford Heads GT40p (200101623261)
This message was sent while the listing was active.
mickwebbsvo is the seller.

If they were CNC ported they would be $10000.00 wanker


If anyone does not know what I was asking about, Yella Terra CNC ported 220Kw GT40P heads out of XR's etc (nothing flash but better than stock), stock non Tickford AU heads are just standard cast ports, definitely not worth $1500.


They obviously didn't understand that macca.....just proves their expertise with Ford stuff really doesn't it? Sounds like you got off lightly...I wish I still had the message, about the only words that weren't swearing were "and" and "the"!
Anyway back to the subject at hand; A centrifugal supercharger is also good from a fuel economy point of view because, at light loads and cruising it gives the engine a light blow(for want of a better word) which increases it's VE.

Perth Street Car recently had an article on a rear mounted turbo which would be perfect. Because the turbo is mounted at the back of the car your not crammed for space, you dont increase under bonnet temp and you dont need to run an intercooler
