    all this talk of roller cams makes me want to grab the low km AU 5.0L with gt40 heads at the wreckers.

    A 120Y will do something similar, however the handling and braking are not in the same league.

    I am not sure on this, so others in the know may shoot me down.
    That said, I have a little LPG knowledge.
    I have experience with gas, but not in a forced induction situation. ( Impco systems mostly)
    My thoughts would be to convert from the complex converter/simple mixer system fitted factory, and change to a simple converter/complex mixer system.
    A B2 converter and Gasresearch mixer is a known quantity with blow through LPG systems.
    It can be made work very well.
    Other people have had great results with Impco mixer and converter systems with forced induction.
     
    I have not done either, but I know a lot of people have with great results.

    Zetec is the same bellhousing bolt pattern as the Kent.
    2.0 blacktop with a C3, cheap as
     
    That said, if performance isn't an issue, 1600 Kent with the C3, no hassles

    Using Gerg's rule of thumb, maybe Emily is going to build a 325 hp crossflow?

    Fingers got a reaction from thaenormountainstorm in Power steering belt replacement   
    I think it would be more likely to be the alternator belt, rather than the steer belt.
    The steer belt is under very little load unless you are turning, whereas the alternator starts charging at a high level immediately on start to recover the charge lost while cranking, then reduces charge rate.
    That said, it would pay to check all belts.
    What is the car, what engine?

    OK take this with alot of thought if your not comfortable but you could just fit the bare rims to the rear and jack up the car at both ends and clean the rims with the engine going,car in gear and wheels spinning. Done it before myself
