crossmembers

hi people.
I am after advice on crossmember for toyota 5 speed into HG
HG ute, 186, aussie 4sp.
I have a steel toyota 5 spd (W50? are they called ?)
Is a standard cross member easily modified for this?
I may have seen adds for an auto cross member and one already to suit a supra 5 speed.
Any of those likely to be a better bet bet than the others?
whats the chances the supra one will work for my steel box?

IFS for Holden HR

Thinking about bringing my HR into the 20th Century. I have been looking at all the different bolt in IFS front ends. They ain't cheap! Has anyone done this upgrade and who's unit did you use? The web sites just show pics & of course theirs is the best. Plus racks mounted front or back. Does anyone have any real experience to save me from the pitfalls. Cheers in advance.

Make a WB ute into HZ ute

I was wondering if it is at all possible to convert a WB ute into HZ ute. I know the front guards are different along with the bonnet. But are the front frames that are bolted to the cab the same for both models ?

Thanks in advance for clarification.

W58 Supra box

Happy to say I am the proud owner of an almost complete W58 5 speed conversion for my HR. Rebuilt box, CRS bellhousing, clutch fork, two brand new clutches, cross member & tail shaft with the correct spigot. May need the tailshaft adjusted for the HR but a long way to getting everything together. I love Gumtree!

VN Auto into HR Premier Sedan

Planning on putting a VN (Pre electronic) TH700 Auto into my HR Sedan. Was wondering about any problems with the Tunnel & Fire wall. I have done a bit of research and looked at the V6 Conversion web site. They say only slight modification. But that is with a V6 motor. Mounting may be slightly different. I want to stay with my 202. Anyone got any info?

Vn304 into Hq

Hey jim here . I'm putting already built 304 vn into my Hq one tonner. I currently run a 253 trimatic pattern with a 350 Holley and a celica 5 speed . The vn 304 turbo pattern has been totally rebuilt with balancing porting flat tops Roller rockers head work and ground. I'm putting a carbie on top.. I'd like to put a 650 hp .. it's a daily drive and I would like it not to stop at every fuel station .. is their much difference between a double pumper and a vac sec 650 in fuel economy.. do I need thermo fans ?? How efficient is getting new pace makers coated for heat transfer..

wb holden headlights

Apart from hanging a hz clip on the ute, is there anyway to improve the output of the headlights. Must be the worst headlight of all time. Are the wb stato lights any better with the built in spotlight?
