Re: Bloody Rip Off

you dont need heads, you need a head.

If you buy all the gear you want second hand but reco'd you could save yourself over half of that.

Re: Bloody Rip Off

I bought a full ACL gasket set for $190 and I thought that was expensive, the RACE set was $215.

Wade do cam regrinds for ~$160 and have a heap of grinds. Kelford Kams on the Gold Coast will do it for $80 but only have about 5 grinds.

You could get your head reco'd and fully ported with a proper 3 angle valve job and springs for ~$1500.

Re: Bloody Rip Off

Head could be cheaper, cam is about that much (brand new), gaskets should be cheaper unless they have something that others don't!

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!

G'day mate, you should be able to get some better prices than that...

Firstly, there's not really a need to get a yella terra head... you could do better by getting someone to work your current head (for around a 3rd of the price if you take the head off yourself)

You should be able to pick up a crow cam for around 350-400 directly from crow. Otherwise get a reground cam for around 150ish (although you will also need shims)...

You should be able to buy a quality gasket set (head, rocker cover, manifolds, etc.) for around 100 ish.


Cheers,
Dave
