My brother knocked up the entire turbo set up in his spare time in october last year, as for the rest of the car we started with a bare rolling shell in 2003 but it's always just been one of those things we only worked on when we felt like it and that wasn't very often.

The crossflow in my off-roader has been dyno'd at 198 hp. All that has done is 200 rods (that's the secret), balance, cain four barrel manifold, 600 vacuum holley (a bit too big), had the valve openings throated - thats where you run a cutter down the hole where the valve sits to remove some of the metal after the valve seats, medium sized cam, lightened flywheel, extractors and the Larry Perkins pistons that are made for the 200 rods on a 250 crank. Just try not to look at Larry's ugly mug on the box, you'll lose your lunch!!

I got an adapter to fit a 350 holley to the stock manifold if you want it cheap?

I love XE's and would buy another one tomorrow. My XE's used to hall a***.

350 holley made up with 465cfm bits, genies & 2 1/2 zorst (all porcelain coated), custom stg 2-3 cam, ported & polished head, roller rockers, lsd, 4 speed, lots of other goods bits.

1320kg and good for mid-low 14's at the old strip at the creek. They can't rev for s**t but are absolute torque monsters from hell.

Oh yeah and i was lucky enough to own two
"X-PAK's" which are as rare as rocking horse s**t. I have only even seen 6 in the last 12 years... and i owned two of them :)

They had the stripes down the bottom of the doors near the sill panel with the xpak in it...
They had the stripes on the sill long before the BA did :lol:
