  1. I'm on the Mornington peninsula so not far away. I can sort you out with anything K motor related. I'll pm you my number when I'm back from my trip. Stu
  2. Yep cars and bikes. Bet they don't get told WHEN they can leave though.
  3. All that stuff that you say is not there, I chuck in the bin anyway.
  4. Me, either. In saying that it's fairly good performance wise for the money.
  5. If you're thinking second hand I'd really highly recommend an oil consumption test done. If new rotate it for a new one before warranty runs out. With a 1mm,1mm,1.75mm ring package on the vw/audi 1.8t and 2.0t aren't built for longevity. We have a fix at work(it actually kept us open over the real strict lockdowns) so even a second hand one with high oil consumption on the cheap is not a bad idea. I've just built a forged engine for a friends R. The factory gasket kit is poison though at almost 2k trade. They can also have cam tension issues going by the amount of valve "kissed" pistons I've seen. BUT don't let any of what I've said as a negative about the car itself. The GTI is my preference of the hot hatch department, it drives a lot lighter and more "flickable" than the R.
  6. Try "Ralf Guastella motors" in Brunswick. Really good with anything really but Matthew has had a few KE's.
  7. Probably go a shortened r31 borgy with billet axles. Got another block on the way but it's only a 3 rib, it is std bore though and with the crank cradle and a resin/grout fill it should get me by for a while.
  8. Pretty happy with how these turned out.
  9. These arrived yesterday, should make the refurbished wheels look even better.
  10. I've fitted two of the McLeod ones to a 308 Holden and a 350 sbc both with t10 4spds and twin plate clutches. Geez they are light in operation and a seriously well made part. But they are expensive around $1000
  11. Yeah we're going to require photos when it arrives mate. The noise could be a manifold gasket leak(can sometimes present like a metallic tick), but like altezza mentioned hydro lifters can stick when left to sit for years.
  12. Big thanks to Tazrx for these. Will get a bit of a birthday over the next month or so, not in a massive hurry as I've got to sort out my diff situation to run the 114.3 wheels.
  13. Ordered an extreme clutch just need to confirm a guestimate torque figure of a 350rwkw, 1600cc, 36psi engine. Gotta get in touch with Jordan "ke conversions" and see of he's still doing mounts and pedal box mods. Oh yeah the spare block is 1mm over bore so I guess I'll be making a set of pistons for it now then too. I may get a bit engineering materials geeky and make some 5mm wall M238 pins for it too.
  14. Yeah it is actually. It will enable me to purchase sticky, sticky rubber at a reasonable price to not have to lift off for any corners(except the hairpins) on the black spur to get to my boat and such at Eildon. Haha.
  15. Just teasing. Thanks Taz!!
