yeah alright, i get it all now,
so if you wanted bigger barrels, you wouldnt be able to run 10mm head studs but the 8mm instead with case savers? or is it just the case saver that doesnt allow you to go any bigger than 90.5mm?
My first reply on here.
Car looks great. Good to see you are giving the younger guys some engine building tips. Hope more will get interested in building performance engines for their vdubs.
When will you take it to the strip?
When I put the gearbox back in the right spot. After Alfreds I gave it a bit of gas and the gearbox mounts let go. Gave Graham a scare though, the guy that sold my centerlines to some else - yeah that guy!!!
