  1. Ran cut down Holden Kingswood V8 springs for a very short time. Way too stiff for the standard struts. Hard to steer with both front wheels off the ground....... But the springs were the rightish diameter and I had them already

    Ke30 Engine swap daily driver

    Factory twins should also be on the list but can be hard to find.

    Ke30 Engine swap daily driver

    Low budget + easy + KE30 = 5K. Noticable increase in torque and it is a bolt in

    Rolla Attention

    Sounds like a similar car has been reported hooning/involved in criminal activity/etc in the area and it's the princesses bad luck to own something the same era/color/make. Remember having the police knock on the door when I was a kid wanting to inspect the old mans Monaro as a similar car had been involved in a hit and run.

    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.

    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.

    Nasty exhaust discharge

    Depends on driving type too. Stop/go driving makes it worse.

    See a sign writer to replace the missing section of strip events.

    5K build help request

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

    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.

    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.

    Cam shaft recommendations

    Loved the Wade 169 grind I had in my 5K
  14. Or you are revving the absolute crap out of it.........
