Hey guys,I've got a HR X2 and am wanting to do up the engine a bit more. At the moment its got a 350 Holley, mild cam and cast iron heads. ive probably got around $2000 to spend any suggestions? Ideally i'd like to put in a late model v8 or a vl turbo engine but its just too expensive unless anyone knows a cheap way?

PLZ HELP!!!!! ahhhhhhhhh

hi, Got a few questions. im confused as in what colour my engine is still? the engine number is VL67909. So im guessing that its blue. also whats the VL stand for?

by taking the tappet cover off, and looking at it, does the amount of springs tell you how many valves the head has got. because i have got 12 springs. but that doesnt explain why ive got a red inlet manifold bolted on and a single throat strommy.

Noise from engine

hey all. ive got another prob with my car

ive finished putting it back together and seems to run fine.. nice and quiet when it idles and it runs smoothly, but while accelerating while its under load, like going up a hill or somthing, it makes this (sort of loud) clicking noise from the engine, at least i think its a "clicking" noise :). I thought it could be the rockers but some people i spoke to who took a drive in it said it sounds more like air coming from the engine (quick bursts of air that sound like clicks). Since it only happens while the car is under load and im accelerating, i dont think it could be rockers. could it be that there is some air pressure that is escaping the engine somewhere? what could the list of problems be? maby the sounds are normal and i shouldnt worry? the sounds were coming before i got a recond head on and now the sound remains. does anyone have an idea

Kiwi Ford owner turned Aussie Holden owner

Well I`ve finally done it....... I bought a Holden.
Not long been in Australia & needed a second car & purchased a VH Holden for $300. I dont know a thing about em, as ive always owned a ford. I want to get a bit more get-up-&-go out of the Blue(?) 202 without compromising fuel economy. I will be tuning it, timing, plugs, points and gas analysis etc. Is their any relatively easy mods to make? I was basically thinking carby & manifold. Any ideas?

rocker bolt keeps snapping

hey all.

im putting the rocker bolts onto my red 202 and have a slight problem. the bolt connecting the rocker of the exhaust valve on the first cyl (the very first in the line of bolts) keeps snapping. i bought some new bolts to replace the one i snapped from supercheap auto but they also keep snapping. I take it these high tensile ones arent that high tensile. as i am only tightening them to 20 lbs/ft making sure that each cyl is tdc before tightening, i cant see why the first bolt keeps breaking, all the other bolts seem to tighten fine so i dont know what the problem is.
