help

hey
i need some help, i want some power out of my hj van currently running red 202, im unsure whether to supercharge the 202 with a crs kit soonish or to keep saving for a bit longer and convert back to 308 (previous owner changed to 202). the van is undergoing a slow rebuild but i want power soonish as im a p plater and now is when im invincible. i really really wanna whip the turbo 4's at the lights! in the short term blown 6 or mildly built up 8

HZ Panelvan Petrol Tank Dilemas

Recently purchased a HZ 78 model Panelvan. Seem to be having problems with the petrol tank.

When purchasing the car, I was informed by the previous owner that there was no overflow valve hooked up and for this reason the tank would leak petrol if filled above three-quarters of a tank.

On inspection the overflow is hooked up, and that tank does not appear to bear any marks, dents, or holes. I am at loose ends as of what the problem is, although friends inform me it is common.

BEWARE OF BMW DRIVERS!!!

Driving to work this morning, I looked over to my right and there was a woman in a brand new BMW doing 90kmh with her face up to the rear view mirror putting on eyeliner!

I looked away for a couple of seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane, still working on that makeup! It scared me so badly, I dropped my electric shaver, which knocked the cereal bowl out of my other hand.

Motor run in

I just got a 202 motor dropped in

The run in leaflet says to accelerate to 60-90km/h in low gear (2nd in auto) for 6-7 times a drive.

Ive got a 3 on tree. Does that mean to over rev in 1st gear to 60km/h???

Cheers
