It will be great to see the progression of the combo one cam to the next along with all the tuning variables.
What convertor and rear suspension setup do you run?
Yes great figures from Tony's 383 you mention, thats well built street muscle for sure. Im keen to see the hp figure on his Jzed holden 6, i think he is trying to outgun my little 179 turbo 6 with it ... im sure it will awesome piece the jzed head and im not often impressed by a holden 6! Lol
is the turbo 6 a work in progress ??
Tony sent me some photos and specs last night - it is badass there some coin tied up in that deal but going to make some pretty serious steam for sure.
the toughest 6 banger i seen in my opinion is NA 202 black lj torana runs 9.7s @ 136 aspirated it has 3 x 2 barrel dominators,5 speed liberty.i was lucky enough to see the car up close when they came up my way for 6 banger nationals,pretty amazing car,the boys keep there cards very close to there chest and dont say a whole lot.
i have 2 x converters - a locally done 9'' 4000 stall and a TCE 8'' 5600 stall thats in the car at the moment,i luv this converter it makes the car really react well no mater what combo i am running.some guys think i am on the lunatic soup running this converter and shifting the car at 6000 rpm but it runs quicker than the small converter 1.5 - 2 tenths in the 60 ft
3 tenths when i ran the as cast 215 darts and roller valve train. 1.52 60 ft .
rear end is a XA GT 9 inch that bolted straight in (HQ style side ute) small bearing deal.
modified 3 x leaf springs i done myself that i bolted together ( dont try and drill spring steel it took me a week lol and lots of broken gear but would not let it beat me) everyone said the bolts will break - has not happened and my theory is if the leaf springs dont separate that must help pushing down on the rear tyre ?? probably dumb theory but i am sticking with it.
fitted Caltracs that dont fit early holden stuff as the USA stuff shackles and eyes must be slightly different - talking 5mm in width.have Koni adjustable shocks front and rear.
have not spent a lot of time with pre load on the bars yet-there's 6 months of testing alone.
