How much power?

I was just wandering how much power a vh 253 or 308 would have as i am adding up the costs to put a new engine in my torrie and im thinking instead of spending 3000 to 4000 grand to get some decent power figures out of me torrie were i could buy a vh or vk 253 or 308 for around that price and ill get a newer car.

Thanx for the help.

My Story

G'Day Guys, Just thought I would post a short story about my FJ225 Special it is going be back on the road again this week coming after being of the road for 17months to do a full engine recondition. You guys might think god it has taken a long time for an engine rebuild but it is not that simple for do it I can't just goto Amercian spare or other parts places like you guy's because they are not just around the corner as I live in England so everything has to sent over to me which takes up to two weeks to arrive and then I have to check the goods and a lot of accassion the part came with faults in them so I have to arrange replacements and send the faulty ones back. This took alot of the time with the rebuild. The engine rebuild started because the timing gear went it was the fibre one I have replaced it with a stainless steel one from American spares. I thought this was all that was wrong with the car at the time but when I had finished putting the engine back together and tried it I relised that the whole engine need doing. Anyway just thought I would share this with you guy's and I'm looking forward to cruising around in England in my beloved FJ.

Plasma cutters

What do you guys think of plasma cutters?

I read about these things, they're hooked up to an air compressor and a 3 phase supply (although they have single phase variants too) and are basically an electric cutting torch.
The articles say they are much better than oxy as they have a much more precise jet and that leads to less material losses and less heating/warpage of surrounding metal.

Has anyone here used one? Some places hire them and I was wondering if they'd be a good substitute for a grinder/cutting wheel to chop out sills, floors etc etc..

As my shed is in a built upon area I'm all for low noise solutions to cutting things out, the neighbours are pricks and get the [Naughty Pottyword]s when the grinder fires up.

Respray Cost

Hi,

Can anyone give me a rough idea of how much a respray will cost on an HZ wagon?? Im not after anything too flash, it a daily driver and i want to be able to park in a carpark without too much fear of shopping trolleys, just clean the car up a bit. Is it much more for a color change??

There is minimal rust, no holes, but a few patches in the ussual spots.

Thanks
