send photos of wife, kids and car i will make a decision then!!! and you dont have to be an old bloke to apreciate and xr i had one at 18 then now my second i got wen i was 22. i agree they are all class, especially if there done right.

is the 289 you have the original matching numbers, if so what ever you do dont get rid of it even if its stuffed it will increase the value of the old girl by heaps if you wish to sell it.

I put the new trans in the xa today only problem is the stall speed is about 3000ish the ol 250 2v is lucky to see 4500. The engine is stock apart from a tricked up 350 holley so I might, no I have to get some more grunt out of the ol girl wish me luck she's never had the head off.Anyone who has done up a 2v i'd be keen to here what you have done eg: compression,caby ect.

Yeah, I was just pointing out the ability to breathe when done right.
Are you going to get the head converted to run on ULP???
