last thing i got for mine was a GTS spoiler for the front, looks tops.

engine will go off for reco soon. the engine builder built australia's fasted xa falcon so knows his way around a motor.

will be a good motor. looking for about 250hp at the fly.

wheel bearing has crapped its self, being a prick to get a cap off thats stuck on the stub axle.

its always something with this car, getting frustrating.

Just bought a hydraulic handbrake. Should be fun.

Something a little different. The other one is s**t anyway so its an improvement.

Got it for $50 so can't complain, not sure about the abs though. But being after the abs unit should still work.

You will have to either feed the front wheel sensors into the rear channels or pull the ABS main fuse and ignition fuse when your using it otherwise the abs will have a fit.

But other wise the mechanical side should be easy, I wouldn't mind a decent hydro handbrake for the drifts i plan on going to :D

got my vct head back, not happy with the port job, just dont the very ends and match them to the manifolds, thought they would had done more.

not sure if im going to put it on the falcon yet, looking to build my V8 up for my panelvan.

will list the head in the for sale section.

been a tad bored the last few days so i have been having a little tinker time.

i have a redline torker manifold for the V8 in the panelvan, inside the manifold it is very rough so i started smoothing it but not polished smooth as thats ment to be bad for air flow.

also port matching to the gasket and the heads will be the same.

heres a couple of progress pics of the plenum entry.

1st pics is how it looked and the 2nd is the work im doing.

got more done on the manifold today, starting to take shape.

getting rid of the lumps on the walls inside, smoothing out the channels.

will sit the motor in the car soon and measure the gap between the filter and the bonnet to get a good size phalonic spacer that will get port matched to the plenum.

Well I have lost power steering, its very heavy and the pump is making mad grinding noises.

Looks like another one is due, this is the 2nd on already.
