  1. Ke30 tyre width

    225/60r13 went under a KE35 after we lipped the guards. Could go bigger with the right offset rims as I remember that there was still clearance to the inner guards.
  2. What Grinds My Gears.

    Dealing with alcohol interlock customers. Not even installing them yet and I am getting pissed off with them. Seriously, DO NOT ʞ©$ɟING DRINK DRIVE. Do not sook and whinge to me about why it is bullshit that I have to get an interlock fitted. IT IS YOUR FAULT, suck it up and move on. It could be my wife and 5 kids that you drive through while you are driving pissed.
  3. Nasty exhaust discharge

    Depends on driving type too. Stop/go driving makes it worse.
  4. my new car

    See a sign writer to replace the missing section of strip events.
  5. 5K build help request

    Lifters pumping up. Never had that happen, and my 5k would see 7500 rpm plus most of the time.
  6. 5K build help request

    Just my 2 cents worth, but why do people insist on going to solid lifters........ A lot of mixing and matching parts for little or no gain in performance, with the added maintenance issues. And don't tell me that you need to do a solid conversion so you can run a cam or pull big revs. Been there done that with hydraulic lifters.
  7. New small capacity turbo engines

    Go ok. Some issues with oil coolers, thermostats and water leaks. Shitty exhaust manifold design, manifold is part of the turbo housing.
  8. Cam shaft recommendations

    Loved the Wade 169 grind I had in my 5K
  9. Or you are revving the absolute crap out of it.........
  10. How do electric fuel pumps work for a 3K?

    Sucked that I never got my hands on the brand new, never been fired 3K that the local school had in their workshop..... :(
  11. How do electric fuel pumps work for a 3K?

    groan.................
  12. How do electric fuel pumps work for a 3K?

    We have shipped parts to Australianise the Chevy SS a couple of times, so it does get done.....
  13. How do electric fuel pumps work for a 3K?

    I ran a cut off switch via the oil pressure sender switch, no oil pressure no pump. Needed to run an extra circuit to prime the fuel system though...... never ran a regulator, once the carbies filled you could hear the pump slow down. Ran a Facet style pump bolted to the boot floor.
  14. KE35 Hardtop

    If you are going to compete in any form of Motorsport, find a club and read the club rules regarding modifications before lifting a spanner. No good spending big bucks and time building a car that does not fit any of the classes offered or puts you against wildly modified vehicles. For example, if I removed the door trims from my KE20, I would of had to compete in the specials class at the club I was involved in. in VIC, if you tan in the PRC class, all you could run was a 3k.
  15. 5k Engine for Ke70

    What's your obsession with heavy duty valve springs? My standard ones would handle decent revs. Why put extra load on the valve train when it is not required?
