severe need of help

im sure we get this question a lot, but i need some severe help in terms of modifying my hq's 202!! i need some serious advice on how to increase my top end power, torque, exhaust note, response. I want to stick with carby and manifold, but as it is an auto, are triples too hard too tune? By the way my car is an original prem with only 91060 kms on the clock with all the log books!! P.S:any carby\manifold ideas?

Recently picked up a HZ 78 Panelvan. Horn is at present not working and on inspection has only one set of wires attatched with a second metal connection plate bare. No sign of any wires to connect to the other horn connection. Any ideas?

HZ/X/J Statesman Wrecking/Front

Righto - Here's the deal. I've got this great old HZ Panelvan (gotta luv em!) I picked her up cheap after returning home from a few years travelling overseas...which means she ain't in showroom nic, but she does turn the odd head!!! I'm after a Statesman front or vehicle for wrecking, I'm mainly interested in the braking system, electrics, dash and nose cone....and I'm having a damn hard time finding them for under a million dollars!!! I'm also after a 5-speed manual I can bolt onto the back of my 253....Perhaps a VB/VC Commodore 5 speed if they had them?

Fitting Torque Converter

Hi,
Can someone help me with a query about a 1976 HJ Kingswood?

I am replacing the auto transmission on my daughter's 1976 Kingswood. I have placed the torque converter into the transmission (bell) housing and ensured the converter is located properly on the shaft. I have also bolted the transmission (bell) housing to the crankcase housing, since the motor (a Red 202) is already mounted on its engine mounts (ie, in the engine bay).

VK 3.3 EFI into HT Wagon

Hi, I am going to restore my HT Premier wagon and was thinking of putting in a VK 3.3 EFI motor instead of rebuilding the 186. Is the 3.3 EFI a good motor? And how hard is the swap? Also, I would like to run on unleaded, how hard is it to convert this motor to unleaded?

Another question, can anyone recommend an engine shop in the Sydney area that could reliablely do this and a rough price would be good.

Monaro For Sale

Hi everyone, my name is Aaron. I have a 1971 HQ Monaro Coupe for sale. Gun-metal grey, warm 308 motor, Holley 600, Extractors, Power Steer, Central Locking, Automatic, Low Profile and looks great. The car is unregistered but would not take much work to get back in order, such as new exhaust. There is some rust - mostly paint bubbles - that detract from its looks, but not its performance. I'm only after $2000 and that will stop my wife nagging me about the room it takes up in the garage (some people just don't understand).

My Project

hey guys, just wanna start telling you all how my EH is comming along. i bought it over a year ago when i was 13 for $650, it wasnt much just a shell but had not much rust and we already had an engine and it came with a aussie 4 speed. we got it home and over the past year have sanded and painted the under side, replaced all shocks and rubbers, had the springs lowered. its now got the 3 speed colum shift and the shaft in. we took the 179 out of my dads old land rover and have striped it down to the block and getting the rebuild kit soon. we got the paint it is tiger gold mica. and have just painted the bonnet and the dash so we can put the steering box back in. next step is to do the engine paint the car and wire it. but my dad works over seas for 6 weeks on then comes home for 2 weeks so he hasnt got much time to do it. his plan is to do it up to near standered condition and then i can modifiy it to my needs. my plan is to do work to the 179 , black interior, 4 speed floor shift ,bucket seats.i have gotten x2 headers and 186S carbie and a water cooled manifold for free off my auntys partner.ill update u on how the project is coming along
cheers
