What 2 do!

Hi, recently i bought a HZ kingswood station as my first car.It has a red 202 and is auto, i live in the sutherland/St george area. Due to my lack of wisdom in these cars i can not think or find(with out indepth research) any modifications or places that do modifications to these cars. i would be versey grateful if some one hooked us up with some information on modifications (air filters, roller cams, lowering etc) and resonably priced places where i can get these fitted.

Hz 308-350 conversion

Hello fellow holden lovers! I have only just found this site and am not even sure if I am posting in the right spot. Anyway here gos.
I am a proud owner of a HZ Tonner. When I bought it it had a mildly worked 308 with a 650 Holley, exctractors,M21, etc.
Well that was 6 years ago and the old 308 is on her last legs. Now I could have rebuilt her, but I managed to get hold of a cheap 350 with a 400 turbo box.I am now in the proccess of reconditioning the 350 in order to drop it into my ute.
Anyway I have many questions to ask anyone who has done this before but Im sure most of them will be answered when I get there. The 350 came out of a HZ sedan so I am hoping she will bolt up the same,but will the tail shaft fit?
How much hassle is it changing peddles to suit the auto etc.
Any help whould be greatly appreciated.

HZ Motor conversion

Hello to all my fellow holden drivers out there. I have a couple of questions to ask and would like your opinion. All opinions taken into consideration. Now down to business. I currently have a 78 kingswood SL sedan with a midly worked red 202. The motor is on its way out. I think the head is starting to go. Mind you though i still managed to drag and beat a mates little 90s model civic. Over took him at about 140-150. Anyway i would like to drop a v8 in but don't know whether or not i should. The main reason for this is that it was once my dads (who has since passed) and don't know whether to keep it original the way he left it or still keep it original but with something like a 308. I have looked at getting my 202 rebuilt and stroking it out to a 236 with a (TYPO

327 chev

Hello people. Anyone know of places in perth i can go to for 327 chevy motors. It doesn have to have all the running gear as i will rebuild it with my preferred parts anyway. I have decided to go against the GEN 3 as there are too many mods to stuff around with and its too expensive as much as i would have loved to have done it. '

V8 conversion

Hello to fellow holden owners. I currently have a 78 Kingswood SL in relatively good condition. I am looking at restoring it as it was my fathers car who has since passed away back in 90. It currently has a 202 red motor with a couple of minor mods done to it like, electronic ignition, extractors, 308 valves, adjustable main jet, 9" air filter. I am wanting to put a V8 in but indecisive about which way to go as in injected or carby. I have been looking mainly at injected along the lines of a GEN III. TRUE.
