Hi Dingie.

Before you start with any mods, check parts availabilty and prices for your engine.
I believe Ford and Chev parts to be cheaper and more available than Holden parts, but I might be wrong.

How much do you wanna spend?

-change the diff ratio for more acceleration
-put in a more aggressive camshaft
-change the carb
-change the intake manifold and exhaust
That's how I roll. Down the hill 'cause the car won't start and the brakes don't work.

For hardcore Holden V8 Performance,look no further. For more sane build ups, i.e. standard iron heads etc. Talk to Peter Micheals in Adelaide, South Australia. P.M. Engines 61 (08) 83497577. What this guy doesn't know about Holden V8's isn't worth knowing! He won several ANDRA drag racing championships, with Holden V8 power, kicked serious butt too! When other guys were ripping them out and using small block Chev's...and he STILL kicked their asses!
