Alloy Heads.....are they worth the extra cost??

Hi all,

I have finally made a decision to use a 253 in my FX ute, i have stumbled accross a set of commodore cup alloy heads for $2,500 and i was wondering if they are worth it.

I was going to stroke it, but after doing some reading on various other sites about the commodore cup engine i don't know if i need to, maybe a nice set of alloy heads will do the job?

Thoughts?

Not old Holden

I'm thinking about getting one of the newer "Monaro's" one of the v2/ vz things, i noticed that some of them have the 5.7L v8

Is this the Aussie built 304 block that's been stroked?

I'd only consider one of these if the v8's available were Aussie built so any info would be excellent.

Cheers,

It will be a sad day on friday or monday.....

...because thats when Sims Metals are going to pick up my 3 door ambulance (body). I um'd and are'd about telling OH about this but I thought that if anyone cared they'd have a beer for it (and maybe even me). I tell ya when I first saw this van when I was 17 I HAD TO HAVE IT! I got it for $200 because it was rusty as feck. Now 12 years on its a little bit more rusty (there are no serviceable panels left on it). After towing it over 1500km to verious farms and yards around WA for somewhere to store it I have decided that enough is enough.

Hey Guys and Girls...

I'm new to this and really need the community Help.

I've created a Blog of the current situation which resides in the Title.

http://lemon[Naughty Pottyword]boxholdenripped-off[Naughty Pottyword].blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2011-04-10T06%3A24%3A00-07%3A00&max-results=7

I've Finally got the HX Ute to go!!!!!

Got Spark, Got Fuel, Got Air.... But it runs so Ruff, for 20seconds and Dies. Did this three times and I'm Oddly Chuffed.

A bit of a Run Down- The Flex plate is Screwed, So turning over the engine is Awful. But If you hold your foot flat to the floor and keep turning the key it Fires.

Alternator is [Naughty Pottyword]ed.

Battery is new but looses the Cranking Amps and needs to be recharged.

Does my Hatch have a stamped chassis number. Location picture please!

Can anyone show me an exact location of where it should be. Not to the mm, but close to. A picture would be ideal. (part picture or cover your numbers up to keep private)

Thought I knew where the stamp is, but I belive some tool might have ground it. All I'm finding is original paint, no sign of it at all. Getting a little concerned. Now I find 2 of the 3 plates match and can't find stamp! Considering a police check too.

Cheers.

HQ holden premier (Whats it worth??)

G'day guys and girls,

I have found a early HQ holden Premier and was wondering what its worth.
The paint is tierd and does have some minor rust in the rear qtrs.

Its a factory 253 v8 and has been factory optioned with a 4spd floor shift manual transmission. It has also been factory optioned with GTS dash and GTS wheels. Has air conditioning but no power steering. Has been a once owner car and has receipts from original purchase still. Its been a daily driver and is complete, and still registered.

The chap isnt over excited about selling it but said he will part with it for the right money?

What would someone pay for something like this. I cant help but feel its a unique package being v8 and manual in a premier, and with the gts goodies....

Any help muchly appreciated...
