nah got it off PK at Kelford, he's a friend of mine. Yeah it's coming along nice, but a few things to iron out yet. Can't see there being much room for a rubber isolator on the engine mount at the moment..

I desperately need an oil pickup from a dual-pan 302 sump from a early Bronco or something. Can anyone help me?

Yea I didn't see you had comp springs... The std Edelbrock are not a performance spring...
Yes I'll be getting some Kelford cams for my 1UZ turbo RA28 Celica, slow build but coming along..

Bonnet on with hole cut, remembering that I already had some holes here it
actually worked out pretty well

Tried to get a snapshot of the throttlebodies spraying fuel as it was running
but my camera wasn't really up to the task.

Right, I'm back

Ran engine in after road tune.. knew it was running pretty rich..

got it dynoed today and made 246hp at the rear wheels and
240 lbft @ 3900rpm (180rwkw and 325nm)

I was expecting about 250hp at the rears but secretly hoping for a
bit more. I think my cam isn't making full use of my head/intake/fuel combo.
Also, the only other V8 experience I've had is my mates Falcon which
had a stock 302 clevo with pacemakers and a cam with a 600 Holly which
made 180rwhp. I expected to make more than 66hp over him... lol

^ sorry not sure what you mean?

I'd like to know if those results are reasonable? I wasn't sure what to expect from a windsor.

AFRs are your air/fuel ratio. Generally (here anyway), when you put your car on the dyno, they stick a wideband o2 sensor up your exhaust pipe to keep an eye on the air/fuel mix. You'd want it to be sitting at around 12.7:1 under full throttle.

Oh right of course.. I'm not actually sure what the AFR was in the end.

It was running very rich when I bought it in (road tune only) and now it's just 'safely rich.' I guess that doesn't answer your question though.. perhaps I'll give them a call and ask
