took an hour

only took an hour to drill and tap...
Spent an hour before hand though cleaning and setting up the drill press..
Still, will be forever an easy mod now that I have done it once
Should be able to bolt them on Thursday, will spend tomorrow cleaning them, maybe a little refining of the ports, and a lappy...
oh, and mod the oil returns

A few pics

K, finally got it to the point of needing to fix the engine to finish it...
Close now, pretty much all done except the stereo install, so I'm onto the engine to resolve the cooling issues...
But this is where it's at now, 5 years and $50K later

Procomp Head Saga

Well, I have Taken the heads off, and, I cannot see anything wrong, the water jackets are all clear with no restrictions, all appears fine, no obvious evidence of any cracks....
Sadness
I even Bought a complete EFI engine to use the heads.
Going to cost $800 to get the heads machined and set up to 'try' and see it they are the issue...
I might just drill and tap the studs for the 7/16 screw ins, put the heads on as they are, and just run it at idle until it either repeats the same issue, or doesn't

update on procomp head overheating issue

So, i found out from a most reliable source today that the overheating issue with the ProComp heads is an internal casting error that restricts at best, and at worst prevents water flow from the back of the heads to the front, the error is not fixable, so, chuck a couple of grand of head work in the bin, and start again

Red or blue 6 cyl air con compressor bracket HQ onwards

Image: 

I just found this on Speedy Air Spare (Gold Coast) web site. http://speedyairspar...
It's the same compressor bracket that I have on the 202 in my UC it's to suite the smaller Senden 508 style compresser. I just thought some of you might like to know. Also it may not suite pre HQ or LC/LJ due to narrow sub frames.
Cheers Shane

How do you know when your stereo install is getting serious?

Other than the 3 Jaycar amps, including 2 1000W RMS monoblock amps for the Jaycar Subs, not even the 20 fared Capacitor, it's when a 10 meter roll of flat braided high def directional speaker wire costs $150.00
