Cool piccies there Kelli. So thats the recipe to upgrade a Windsor 302 to 151kw at wheels. No doubt the engine feels a thousand times better than before.

I did a bit..

I fitted the roller rockers, I painted everything. I did a few other "easy" things, and left the more complex (aka... do it wrong and it kills the motor) things to the mechanics.

I also ordered all the parts that where put on!! (ie... I turned up at the workshop every night and said "hey... I bought new cam and roller rockers for my car - this is what we are putting on"
