That means there is hope for my Eb s1 Xr8, with extractors, k & n filter, big exhaust, and i think that might be all, not sure, haven't opened up the engine. :mrgreen:

Cheers

Clevo heads go on a windsor block? I've read about it but why would people do it? Wouldn't after market windsor alloy heads be a better choice than clevo heads?

Cheers

The single 3" seems to work well enough for me.
Witht the new heads and manifold it actually seems to sound tough at the moment.

The old orange girl had a single 3'' on it and sounded really good but was thinking for a more old school sound on this one with nice lumpy cam to match...Hows the rosie go with the new heads and intake ??

well heres a pic of my main problem at the moment, as you can see where the oringal mark is about 1cm on the pic and the rest with new light rust marks is how much its hanging out now with the bellhousing to accept the 6cyl t5.
Pic of the multi pattern bellhousing from underneath and my nice square tube trailing arms
