not really.. I fixed the overheating problem with a set of ef fans. They bolt straight in! Great!

also got a 3inch exhaust installed aswell.. cant really tell if its any faster or not .

The leak is defiantely coming from the manifold area.

I noticed timmeh has gt40p's for sale.. would i be better off with those? Or just get a bigger cam to suit the performer rpm?

neither.. i say get a smaller(longer runner) manifold.

plus its pretty easy to install especially if u get ur hands on a normal performer..

they share the same lower so its a half hour job. hell ill show ya if ya want..

Or save it for a rainy day carl, like when your missus decides she wants a big rev stroker :lol:
I dunno what WA strips are like, but 2.2 60' seems a tad slow for a manual?
probably because of losing a bit downlow with the RPM and big a** TB?
