heads, inlet manifold/throttle body, and 1.72 rockers?

Thats a guess. The heads on the eb were a massive restriction as were the exhaust headers.

it also runs a full stainless steel exhaust, i dont think i could get bigger headers under/around the chassis :| and is there a manifold you can buy that can mount the throttle body on the top? i would like to put a bird catcher on :) thanks

You can always go with something like holley pro-jection, or go non efi?

Your heads are your best bet right now... I believe AFR's are the recommendation, and theyre a bit cheaper with the stupid dollar at the moment

If you already have a custom exhaust for your corty theres a good chance its not the eb manifolds, and you'll be ok. Otherwise CRS have some I think as well that also work with newer heads (GT40p). if you go with AFR's though you wont need to worry about any of that.

Ask Pete (XR9Ute) as hes a font of knowledge on these cars

1. Full mandrel bent exhaust ( front to back )
2. Bigger cold air intake
3. Under drive pulleys
4. Roller rockers
5. Upgraded Intake manifold & bigger TB

.. would get you there. Piece of piss.

Throw in a proper dyno tune and you get even more.
