blow through turbo

Hello there! well i posted couple of weeks ago about building a peformance 186. well since then my plans have changed once again. Well after finding a turbo manifold from some old bloke with a hot EH, a quick chat with the old fella and he had me convinced that the turbo setup was the go! "youll spend as much doing a turbo then u would on your other rebuild but get twice the power" he said ! So im now seeking information on turbos,lowering comp and carby prep for a blow through set up .

Building a Very Quick 202

I bought this slapped together worked 202, it would be worth doing up, it already has a Stage 2 Cam, Straight Cut Alloy Timing Gears, Heavy Duty Oil Pickup, Ectronic Dizzy, and a 350 Holley. I bought the engine with big plans, frankly im sick of all the 4cyl turbo jobs getting around town, and i have the means to build this engine up, and blow them all away, i have heared that a very quick 202 can be built using bits and peices from the Red, Blue and Black.

Red 202 mods

Ive got an HJ Kingswood with the ol 202 in it. I cant be bothered putting a v8 in it so im wondering what i can do to the straight six. Is it possible to fit a black 202 efi head and manifold on? If so are there any technical difficulties in doing so(like the computer)? I'd much prefer this head as the red head design looks awful. Would replacing the camshaft require replacing every other internal part as well? Cheers'

Solid Discs

I am coverting my 1967 Darsun Fairlady Sports to run 260Z discs on the front with solid ie non vented Holden calipers. I have tried the single piston Girlock calipers but they were for vented discs...though the bolts for the caliper to carriers lined up except had to drill them out from 7/16" to 1/2 to accept the 1/2' Fairlady bolts. Could anyone tell me which Holdens ran the solid discs..the caliper is more petite for these and so will fit the conversion i am attempting. ould appreciate any light you could shed on this subject.

Electronic ignition onto a red motor

I have a HR X2 and fancy the idea of putting a later model distributor into it so I can do away with the points. I have a VB blue motor distributor and believe it will bolt straight in and run.
However I am also told that the blue motor has a different ignition curve due to emission control requirements and this can be changed to suit the red motor by removing "weights" I am sure someone has done this before?

A Brisbane based GPS Program

Rustys been a bit busy the last week. So I thought more should be posted. Here is an Australian GPS Program. There is a trial version of it and I have seen the full version working on a friends laptop. Go have a look and Download the trial.... The price is just right too ! I would Email Des for the Australian price though. I would say he has a good market already in the US, SUV area ( 4x4 ).
At the least it is something to do this weekend in the shed !
Thanks Des for the affordable program.
