Holden 202 cams

Hi,

I'm looking for information on cam profiles for different manufacturers for my 202 reco. So far Crow has some good information on theirs however I'd like to find information on Dynotec, Crane, Heetseeker, Waggot, etc ....

Also, what defines Stage 1 from Stage 2, Stage 2 from Stage 3 and Stage 3 from Stage 4?

Thanks, James.

Speedo is reading wrong on my HQ

Hi Guys

I have a 74 HQ kingswood racecar, it has a combined km/h and mp/h speedo in it but it is reading wrong, I think the speedo drive in it is for the wrong gearbox. It has a three speed in it now. Doing 90mp/h comes up as 15 km/h on the speedo. Does anybody have any info on the different speedo drives??

Thanks

EH brake query

Hi,

I am doing up an standard EH and have found that my oroginal brake booster is screwed. I have purchased a HR front end with Torana disks on board, but I not yet ready to put the front end in (about 3 months away).

Which would be the better option?

1) Run without
2) Repair the original
3) Run a VH40 unit on EH drums? Is this possible?

Monaro exhaust

I'm after a new exhaust for my 5.0Lt HJ Monaro, as I have already fitted 4-2-1 headers i was thinking of a twin 2 1/2" with straight through mufflers and a couple of hotdogs for a better note. Any other recomendations? or would i be better off with a twin 2 1/4"? also whats the average price for the supply and fit of a system like this? Thanx -Brett

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?

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.
