Rebuilding my Uc Torana

Hay guys.
I was hoping to get some advice from you guys cause I don’t know anyone personally that can help me.

Cause im 20 years old living in Melbourne I am still on my p’s and have limited options.
I have a UC Torana I am planning on rebuilding into a beast. As this is my first rebuild Im not a 100% sure on what would be best for me car.

First of I have a Holden 173 v6 and a 4speed manual. I have been told putting a Toyota Supra 5 speed box will help heaps. Do u guys think this conversion is worth it or do u guys have any other ideas?

I was also thinking of my engine and thinking of putting a efi V6 engine out of a vn or vs. I know this is a expensive conversion but I am think of the petrol prices are going up and im thinking doing this I will be on unleaded, and the engine will give me more power and still be fuel efficient to. Or do u guys think I should keep my original engine and spend money on that or if u guys got any better ideas let me know it would be very helpful.

Typical Torque Convertor "Slip"

Hi guys, I just ran a few calculation to determine if my speedo is accurate having just changed diff ratio.

With 15" 225-60 tyres, the wheel diameter is 24.75" (measured). With 2.6:1 ratio, in top gear (1:1) I calculate the revs should be 2200rpm at 100km/h. I am seeing 2300rpm at 100km/h, would this 100rpm difference (4.5%) be attributed to slip in the torque convertor (1800 static stall)?

Another thing, is there an easier way to check the accuracy of a speedo (and no, getting busted by a Multi-Nova is not a option!). I guess a pass down the drag strip would do it, so long as I maintain

5 speed troubles

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone can help.

I am putting what I thought to be a supra 5 speed, which turns out to be a celica 5, behind a worked 202.
The trouble I have is that the gearbox has a goose neck which put's the shifter back about 4 inches.
Does anyone have a forward conversion section to fit?

thanks

Plug reading experts

These NGK BP6FS plugs just came out of a 308 running pure LPG having travelled 10,000km. Notice how plugs 5,6 & 8 look oily on the threads? #8 also looks white on the earth electrode. 2,5 &8 also look oily at the end of the threads compared with 1,3,4 & 7.

What can you tell me about my engine looking at these plugs?

BTW, #5 looks oily around the polcelain/part number from a recent splil when replacing the oil (#5 is under the filler).

Cheers.

Number plate mount and reversing lights

Hi guys,

I have been pondering a couple of bits for the Qute lately....

I ordered the mounts, etc to bolt the RB into her today, so I can get going on bending her to my will again. YAY!!

However, getting the reversing lights to work as they originally did (which they have to do as she will need to go over the pits when the mods are done) has been giving me LOTS of headaches due to the WB Stato indicator switch and column not having the same wiring as the HQ item. I can get the reversing lights to work normally, but getting the rear indicator to over-ride the reversing light is a PITA. The Qute is an HQ, so I don't really want to run WB tail-lights either....
