    Blown Crossy.

    I helped him out with the dizzy and other bits and pieces and tbh it punches above its weight now.

    Blown Crossy.

    Talking about blown crossy's. Ryan Ohara aka Taz Tuned has had great success with his 4/71 blown cross flow running low 11's now. 11.1 119mph in his gasser gig. Still the same basic engine combo,some match porting and switch to a TFI dizzy over electronic but reading plugs and adding timing made it drop nearly a second.Yes went from 12.0-11.9 type deal to a 11.1 by not taking out soo much timing. Engines need timing to be efficient and the results are happier engines and faster times.Once plugs identified tune timing was added and BAM its a new car. Internet scare tactics and only this person knows days are over. There just a engine that wants what they want.Give it to em

    Driveshaft length

    E series sedan fit X series sedan E series wagons and utes fit x series wagons utes. I have a ED diff in the ute with a XH steel ute tail shaft.
  5. Flex plate has a different tooth count and convertor mounting holes due to using a BTR gearbox vs a BW or C4. You can use the bolts but the flex is no good to you.
  6. Imperial or big is 7/16th unf from memory

    Crossy build- am I on the right track

    That is clevo gear as discribed... Needs clearanced block,BBF lifters,BBC pushrods,custom guide plates and BBC mark 5 screw in studs with clevo,bbf or even BBC rockers.

    Hyd lifters are heavier and need more spring to control which means single groove valves and 10degree locks and retainers on machined pads as no one does that hardware in a xflow spring size.

    And again no one does hyd roller cams for xflows. Only solid roller profiles thus far and in a dying engine tbh

    So to do a set of webbers correctly will cost over $3000. Doesn't include fuel pump regs and stuff. Plus you need a engine worthy of em. Blower requires the same engine under it if not more and a properlly ported cyl head as a start. Big ignition is needed like a coil per plug/cam sync type deal. A msd and stuff can work but also kill coils like hookers do condoms. If you can't do the fab work you need to find someone left field to help you. Ryan AKA Tas is a Wagga local too and will help were he can. And yes dex I run a M1SC-b Procharger on my xflow making 14PSI. It power skids in top gear at 80-100kph. But again there a $2000 blower 2nd hand minimum and then you need to sort pullies brackets and shit.I used chev stuff as it fits xflows and a 8 rib serpentine drive. Was easy for me but its not for everyone.
  14. Sorry didn't see this post. I do use basically a McDonald Bros tri angle kit in my ute but weld in style. It runs double adjustable viking coil overs front and rear with a Comp Enginerring adjustable anti roll bar. I can lower or raise the car while keeping spring rate the same on the rear in like 5mins each side. But the shocks allow you to get the ride exactly as you want. Running a soft 150lb spring leaves the shock to control ride alot better than a conventional set up.
