I can do the linkage aswell, are your carbs inline mounted or sideways mounted?

easy to setup, both carbs mounted the same way.

The one in the picture in that link is the the 671 blower kit that i used on the hotrod above.

The clevo tunnel ram kit has a different mount for the lower section od the linkage.
They all use the same upper parts.

i think you'll find by the time you buy that ebay one convert in to AUS dollars and pay freight from the US, it will work out about the some price to buy from AUS.

i'm going to have the the carbs off our XD inthe next few weeks to add a second nitrous system, i'll try and get photos of how i set it up. i don't use the lower section, i use a custom braket on the back of the tunnel ram. (drill and tap the ram to bolt it on) and then use a Lokar accelerator cable.

Mainly because it is far neater then running a long cable around the engine bay.

I should be able to do that US on for about $190 it would come in a holley box, not an enderle box. (all come from the same factory anyway)

the second system is so we can run two stages. there is a thread in the V8 section about the engine.
(just search my name in the v8 forum)

i checked with the boss today. the last linkage we sold was $290. Its going to be hard to beat the US prices for a while. The dollar has come good but AUS is still stocked with parts bought when the dollar sucked. will be about 6 months i recon before the prices even out.

No drama's, I understand that. I was importing parts myself but stopped when the dollar dived so quickly. Its almost back to we're it was so buying is improving.

Thanks though, I do appreciate the time you have taken to help me out.

cheers!


No worries.

i've got a stack of photos of our linkage setup too, i'll post them up tonight some time.
