    My workmates have a saying when I've tampered with something... "it's been Gergified!"

  1. I'm all for hopping up the 250, good engine to learn on. Solid and simple, no real snags when screwing them together. You can delete the restrictive (and poorly placed) airflow meter/air cleaner from above the exhaust, plumb it to a cooler spot and run a later (MAFless) e-series computer with a J3 chip tune. Never done it but it's definitely a thing. E-series throttle body could be adapted (?), not sure how much cam the ECU will handle before chucking a shitty but not too much overlap, say a mild 208/208 on a 110 lobe angle would give brilliant midrange. Install better valvesprings, roller rockers (spacer needed on rocker cover if keeping the EFI one) extractors and 2.5" exhaust. 9.5 compression would be safe. Late model cat could easily be adapted. The inlet manifold is OK, but the EA-ED log is better. If you know anyone who can TIG aluminium, you can graft one onto the injector plate that the bunch of bananas normally bolts to. This solves the problem of having to plumb up to the throttle body that's originally on top of the engine. Either that or make up some sort of adaptor plate for it.

  2. I think all BW gears fit the worms but the ratios change depending on the combo Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  3. Yes correct the worm gear in the tailhousing used to be 7-tooth, then became 8-tooth at some stage (can't remember when) Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  4. I'll try the 19 against a GPS when it's back on the road, if it's close enough, that's close enough. If I tyre it up a bit, might help slightly. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  5. Oh OK cheers. I'll have to source one el pronto.Which one does pink go with? 2.92? Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  6. Still EA T5 with the 3.50:1 1st gear, , 0.78 overdrive but should still cruise nice. Pink speedo gear needs to go in (has green from memory). Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  7. Put the 3.08s in, hence the dramas fitting the 75 gears into the 78 housing. Got there in the end (well I hope it's OK) Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  8. The Jag weighs 4 tonnes? What was it made out of..... tungsten? Usual engine hop-ups apply to the crossflow. Cam, carb, compression, exhaust. If you want to fry the tyres (especially on a big barge like yours), you'll need a turbo or supercharger. You'll need to run that through a built C4 as the BW box is only adequate on a standard engine. Easier, and cheaper approach would be an E-series on gas. More power out of the box, plenty still around, go forever if built with the right combo of parts. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  9. Hmmm bit 80s "street machine" for me, but each to their own. 14s are getting hard to get rubber for nowadays too. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  10. I'm a bit over the gold snowies for mine so I tried some ideas while saving up for some 17" steelies: Cheap silver: And blacked out: I think the second one wins for now Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah 5/16" out to 3/8", run a through-bolt and nut on the lower hole instead of threaded and screwed in through the beklhousing, cut snout reinforcing back by one rib on the lower side (I think). I did mine with a hacksaw. Will need spacer if running a manual box. There's a thread on here that shows you everything you need to know. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  12. Sure are, better for extractors, etc but can run into clearance issues on the drag link/pitman arm with the solenoid main terminal. Mine cleared by a bee's dick but cleared nonetheless. I went back to the old Bosch type because the reduction one shit itself and I prefer the old school clunk and whirring sound over the high-pitched gear whine. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  13. Illegally? Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  14. This build is off chops.... Love the lateral thinking and fab skills. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  15. I'm not 100%, but XD-F wagon tailgates look identical. I have a feeling that Ford Oz used them off-the-shelf. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
