July 31st

att 308 guru's, im looking for how to make maximum torque from a holden 308

Howdy chaps.
Im planning my 308 rebuild for the 4x4sandman. My aim is to get maximum possible torque whilst retaining the 5ltr capacity. What im looking at so far are two possible options, but first, the rest of the drive line is;

33in tyres, 3.9 to 1 diff's, gq transfer case, 4l80e trans with a lower 1st and 2nd. probably a low-stall converter.

Most likley option: A pair of Yella Terra high port ali heads on my red 308 with a roller cam, roller rockers, and other quality stuff.

Noisy lifter(s)? Holden Barina

I have a 1996 Holden Barina with 176000k on the clock. Only used to get to work and back (12 k round trip). When the engine is running there is a "ticking" sound which I thought might be nosiy lifters but after checking a few old post's regarding noisy lifters I see mention was made of a pinhole in an exhaust. When you acclerate the noise is louder. I was going to change the oil/filter and put in some additive to try and remedy the problem. What type of oil (brand / viscosity) should I use?

HQ GTS Coupe for Sale

G'day All.

I have a much loved original '71 308 Manual GTS Coupe and due to a divorce settlement looks like we may have to part company.

At present she is unlicensed but had been driveable until I took her off the road to begin the resto, which has only got to me removing the interior trim - which is all there - and the passenger door.

Can you blokes give me an idea of what price to expect to sell for? I have had a look at ebay and a few other sites, but cannot find another similar car to compare with.

Any advice appreciated, thanks.

Jacko.
