v8 or 6 cylinder? stock or worked? and are you going to be running stockies with a 50-60 series tyre? or some big rims with real low profiles? stockies are much better to run with a minispool, as they dont put as much strain on yr axles. (hope that makes sense...)

i got a mate with a minispool in a stock v6 vn that gets thrashed and the axles are lasting.....vs diffs are a fair bit stronger too!
9  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: turbo chargeing vs v6 on: November 05, 2006, 01:41:59 AM
wouldnt bother, not for the $$$ it will cost you. for that you could build a tough v8/inline 6. or another option, is a rb30 turbo engine, there alot cheaper to build, and are tough as!

thanks for the reply Paul, not 100% sure on how we are going to fit it up yet, most likely going to do it pretty much the same way as you, does the stock sized trimatic stall fit onto the grey?
11  Galleries / Members' FEs and FCs / Re: Project updates on: November 04, 2006, 07:33:58 AM
i will post some pics next week, or maybe this weekend depending when i go over to my old mans house.

also got to add, my alaskan malimute has had pups again ($550 a pup, 11 pups) so the sedan will be booked into a panel shop next year for a respray (not going to attempt it ourselves, want it done in one year (not 3 lol!)

maybe see some vic guys down at johns rod n kustoms?
12  Galleries / Members' FEs and FCs / Project updates on: November 04, 2006, 06:03:46 AM
well its been a while, havent been on the forum much in the last few months, started an apprenticeship 3-1/2 months ago (as a carpenter), also moved out of home in with my gf .....and in the midst of all that ! my mum passed away, so my mind has been elsewhere

well anyway onto the update.

FCWESTY3-after the miss hap just before the nationals, engine was stripped of its top end, reco/worked and is all back together. manualised turbo400 has been fitted along with a 3500 stall and a bunch of other minor touches (guages, tacho, stereo) engine shall be running within the fortnight, just waiting on pushrods to come in then its just a mattter of bolting down manifold and firing it up!

FCWESTY4 (aka the ute)-not that much has happend to it, welded in a tun of rust repairs on the passenger side,  fitted crank supports and bolted engine together, fitted tripple carbs and headers, gearbox (trimatic) has been cleaned up new seals etc, 3200 stall coming, then it just a matter of dropping engine and box in.

just waiting on getting the sedan back together then the ute will be back on its road to recovery!

anyways, look forward to hearing from the guys on here, shall be seen on chat again now Smiley that ive got things together.... see ya's around Smiley

Paul, good to hear of some progress, its been a while since ive seen OLDKAT cruzing the streets....just remember though that the grey has a pretty large cam, if you run a standard convertor it will run like a pig up until around 3200rpm....look forward to seeing some pics soon aswell!!!

18  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: LPG conversion. on: August 18, 2006, 01:52:00 AM
Gas research do some nice setups..... my brother got quoted $2500 including tank, filler valve, lines, throttle body, twin convertors, fitted and dyno tuned, ready to drive out.

Looking at the new LPG rebate, ( some discussion on this here: http://www.calaisturbo.com.au/showthread.php?t=84372)

i would say that straight gas or duel fuel is the way to go.... sorry i couldnt help any further.... Wink


the way things are goin our v8 fc is going to end up on gas

Gday Paul,
               your ek isnt by any chance pink is it? fitted with red motor/crash box??? if so i can come up and give you a hand one weekend...its nto a hard job at all Smiley
20  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: Blue 202 3.3L Modification Help????? on: August 11, 2006, 11:15:19 PM
yes i mean a torque convertor. if you go for a 3000rpm stall convertor, this will work well with the rest of your setup.

As for the diff, stock they are 3.08, youd be best off putting a vl diff in it, they are 3:4:5 standard, and you can buy em for around $100- from the wreckers, then if desired, fit a mini spool. the only modification you will need to do to fit a vl diff is fit the vh yoke onto the front of the diff. you wont blow a vl diff with a spool in it.... Shocked Grin
