Gave the ghia a much needed bath, will be attending a cruise tomorrow so I should be able to get some decent photos for once.

Thanks bro, somewhere near the start of my thread theres a link to some chrome strip stuff. It's like a long sticker you just put over the top.

It's going into the Ghia, the XR6's motor is smooth as.

Here's some pics with my mate's EF Ghia, real unique and classy looking.

Short motor all finished, it's got forged flat top pistons now, the engine shop sent me pictures of the wrong pistons before :lol:

Just need to get my head ready for it, but if I take it off my car I won't have anything to get to work, so I need to sort out other transportation before work can progress.

I would assume if it is 10.4 now, then after another head skim plus the flat tops it would be edging close to 11. I'll try and measure it properly when the head is off and get the chamber cc's.

I would have thought closer to 11.5 even heading towards 12.

Nice! This is something I always wanted to do, big compression, big cam, big rev's on E85 and see what it could do.

Interested to see how this goes man, keep the updates coming! :twisted:
