Being this is my first post, thought it best to introduce myself and my car.....
Hi guys, I have an XY 2V 250 for 4 years now, 6 months before I got my L's, (keen as!!!), just had the head reconditioned last week, 350 holley, extractors, supra 5 speed, rear air bag shocks, exhaust and with they usual creature comforts, central locking with alarm, pwr steering, air cond, cd player, carpeted throughout, buckets and a spare tire in the boot....... :p
But reading a few threads so thought this would be a good place to start asking a few questions.... To get a bigger cam put in what would have to be done to the head so it could support it? how much for the cam? and what ever else needs to be done?
Is it worth while going duel exhaust?, what will it do to the power and sound?
If I need a new clutch, what kind would be best, or should I change the gear box at the same time, or won't it really matter?
Thats all I can think of for now, might post some more later.
My older brother used to have a 250 2v head motor done up ..about 17 years ago.It was the fastest accelerating car I have ever been in..Even up untill today..mind you he was using 80 dollars of fuel in it back then.I know one thing he did to it....a dual exhaust at the extractors.Each of the 3 bank cylinder exhaust went direct to each single exhaust with no joins between the other 3 banks with its separate exhaust.It was truly awesome!!At 60 miles he would boot it and literally it threw me into theseat from g forces!!!If I find out anything more Ill keep you posted
Hi there, good to see another 2V head owner, you can get bigger and better cam's for the engine but there's not a great deal you really need to do to the head apart from a clean up, they are great as they are, the exhaust is a good question, some say like useless mentioned, the dual exhaust is the way to go, they sound like a V8 then even if you have a lumpy cam, got any pic's of your XY.

mate love the 2v engines, i have one in my xp, i believe the celica/supra box behind one of these are just perfect along with the right diff ratio 3.45:1. Acceleration is awesome. I have a 600dp holley on mine, ported head and cam, extractors and an MSD 6al ignition.
