  1. I have found that I have an intolerance to gluten, it’s a pain when eating out at cafes and restaurants as I get asked all the time why I want gluten free breads and get the question “do you have celiac disease”? I try real hard to not eat any wheat products at all, otherwise I bloat and put weight on easy. Two weeks in the Gold Coast and easy put on 5kg through being lazy with food. Also being at the end of your 30s doesn’t help with weight loss, just hangs around. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It’s a drain hole for the oil return from the turbo[emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Just reading about how the camshaft are stamped TE. Basically the camshaft of 1992 had total lift of 0.260 x 1.6 for the rocker = 0.416 life. 1993 onwards you got 0.278 and 0.283 x 1.6 = 0.444 and 0.452. A good upgrade is the E303 or crane equivalent of 220@.50 and 0.498 lift. A factory GT40 style head will be on its limit with that cam, remember that a GT40 cast head is on its limits for a 302w.

  4. I have looked into these and I can’t see how a complete set with valves etc can be landed here for $1300 bucks, as a bare set is $500us, plus conversion and freight (would be a bit as they would be heavy). Most forums I have read say they are ok for a cast head but need work to flow as good as an AFR165. The main issue the header bolts are spaced wider so you couldn’t use an off the shelf header flange. Get some alloys for a little bit extra, even if they are the Proflow or TLG brand, they will work great as it’s not a 6500rpm all day motor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. A decent set of headers to suit a windsor into X series is going to cost $700 plus anyway. The plug angle on the P heads is a pain but with the right spark plug angle boots you can get away with it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Actually you would need to get the head bolt holes enlarged on a AU GT40p head to suit the 1/2 351 head bolts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. This is coming along well. I personally wouldnt be deciding a cam until you have the heads sorted. The windsor heads are the biggest restriction, and the disappointing part is any cast iron windsor head is a restriction on a 302w so it’s worse on a 351, at least get an AU GT40p head or a set of cheaper alloys. Aim for torque rather than higher end HP/Revs. I’d probably use the E303 grind which I think is about 220@50 and .498 lift, crane cams and comp all make a similar grind.

  8. My totally stock XF Ghia will light up both rears in the wet “only”, the LSD is good and tight but she is slow with the 2.77 gears. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thats a great conversion. Well done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yeah dead right about the drag link pitman arm, mine clear...just. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Not sure what’s up with Tapatalk but none of my comments show up? So you got a 6 cyl one? I drilled the mounting holes out, and you grind the nose of it so the starter will engage the ring gear, put them side by side and you will see. It’s a 5 minute job. They are a lot smaller than the traditional Cleveland style starter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Those brakes look fancy. I run a AU 6cyl starter in the windsor, have to do the mods to it but it’s never let me down, winds over fast too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah just slap a set of cheap alloys on it, you will likely have to upgrade the valve springs due to the roller cam so check that out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Any head ideas yet? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Very nice impressive work mate.[emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
