BRISBANE ENGINE BUILDERS

Hi Guys,

Just chasing some info - I got a 202 for my HG and after putting it in I discovered its done a bearing. Im looking to just rebuild mine or get an exchange engine.

Ive been quoted approx. 3k for - Them to supply a new engine, rebuilt with a stage 1 cam - this was from a company that used to sell production line built 202's and didn't have the best rep a few years ago. Im sure you can guess what company.... This one is apparently not one of the production line and has been built by the head builder.

I have also been quoted the same price (give or take a few dollars) from a few other places to do a stock rebuild on the engine I have (not a matching number car so keeping it original isn't an issue)

HQ - LS1, 308 or 350 Chev

Hey Guys,

I've got a HQ Wagon shell that's been sitting up at our farm for numerous years rotting away and I'm finally of age where I can fund and restore the car. It originally had the 202 Straight 6 in it but was taken out and given to my uncles mate. I want to restore it to it's former glory but with massive power upgrades. What are your guys opinions, and how hard/much work is it to fit an LS1 with a T56 or TR-6060 Manual box into it? Is much modification needed or is it a pretty much straight swap.

I've been tossing up with a 308, 350 Chev or a LS1 and am looking towards the LS1 because it's just a bigger, easier engine to get parts for and can make a lot more power a lot easier. As for the gearbox, would you recommend a T56 or a TR-6060 (not interested in auto boxes)?
