Red or blue 202 - which one do I rebuild?

Hi guys, so I purchased an HQ about 3 years ago and it currently has a Smokey and tapping blue 3.3 motor. The original red 202 come with the car and I’d like to rebuild one of the two so that I have a reliable package for family road trips. The car is all original with the blue motor the only addition. My heart is telling me to rebuild the red motor so that the car is back to original, but what am I missing out on if I don’t use the blue motor?

Surging 186 whilst at a steady speed

Hi, my 186 has just got a surging problem when at a constant speed, if i take my foot of the gas its fine, if i put my foot flat down at take off its fine, slow pickup also surges. It seems to idle fine. Recently replaced battery and its just been on an out of town run 4+hours of open road driving. Any suggestions on what this most likely could be? Thx

GTR-X restoration

The second GTR-x is being restored: https://www.whichcar...
Should be interesting to follow.
I always thought there was only the one.
I did know that there were 7 bodies made.
One of the blokes at work helped make them. They were done at company called Engineering Plastics in Melbourne.

HQ 308 air filter.

A mate has 650 Holley double pumper on his 308 HQ one tonner.
It has an aftermarket chrome air filter on it that fits under the bonnet.
The filter is five years old and the it is rusty because of the crap chrome plating on it.
Can anyone suggest a good brand of filter that won't rust? He lives near the sea so the is salt in the air.
I suggested getting the filter he has now rechromed. I thought good triple plating might be a better long term solution.
Any ideas?
David
