220hp+ 202 extractors and rocker covers

Hey guys just wondering what size extractors should I get for my 202 if I'm hoping for 220+hp? 1 5/8" primaries and 2 1/4" collector?? And if anyone knows where I can buy extractors this size to suit HQ? I can only find smaller ones.

Also what's the best rocker cover to use to clear roller rockers and with a factory style breather setup/inside cover?? Tempted to buy a cheap chrome one but not sure if they're any good.. Or if I can find a spacer plate to use the stock cover?

Hopefully someone can help?

HQ SS

Hi all

I have a HQ SS in a pretty sad state but have found out recently it is all original with the original motor houndstooth trim etc etc .
The body however has a lot of rust and what I am wanting to know is do any of these reproduction mobs make a 4 door HQ body to just rebody the car , will this affect the value of the car or should I put a bit more effort into rebuilding the existing body
any help would be great to save the old girl
cheers

HJ Air Cleaner

Hi,

This has probably been covered but I couldn't find exactly what I wanted to know.

I have an HJ 202 and wanted to fit a redline chrome air cleaner. The new air cleaner doesnt have the fitting for the pipe from the rocker cover for the emissions control system. Is there any thing easy I can do to fix this or would I be better off keeping the stock setup.

Thanks for any help,

where did the kangaroo go?

So apparently this guy hit a kangaroo in his BMW Z4 whilst travelling at highway speed, but saw and felt the kangaroo hit his car but couldnt find it when he stopped.

Adjusting Drum Brakes

New shoes and cylinders are on their way (very affordable!) so will be rebuilding the rear brakes over Xmas. Just a question on adjusting. I have always worked on the principal of locking the wheels and then turning the adjuster back until there is no rubbing of the shoes on the drum whatsoever. However, one manual I read said to back off until wheels are "just free to turn". Surely this can't be right?

HQ air box foam gaskets

Does anyone know of a source for obtaining new or very good used foam gaskets (see attachment) for HQ airbox and blanking disc to plenum chamber fitment?

These items are from fitted factory HQ air-con.

As you can see from the pic that the gaskets are corrupted with rust and I don't want to put them back in. I'll try cleaning them up to eliminate the rust, but even if sucessful I'd still prefer to use nice new ones.

I had a good look at Rare Spares site today and they don't seem to make/sell them.
