Re: eb gt40p head conversion

Hehehe. DO a search and you'll prolly find some answers. think AU type extractors. You'll also prolly need AU style spark plug leads with angled connections.

Re: eb gt40p head conversion

Genies fit a bit nicer. I just went from Genies to Pacemakers and although they still fit, getting out a couple of the spark plugs is much harder. Remember, you need the extractors designed for E-series V8's not AU ones. The AU ones often sit out too wide and hit the shock tower. You will also find making up a custom spark plug socket will save a lot of problems down the track and remember you will need new 90 degree angled spark plug leads not the stock 135 degree ones.

Re: eb gt40p head conversion

im all bolted up and ready to go just needed to sort out the extractor situation.i cant believe i even thought about modifying the stock stranglers.eb 5.6 suggests the hm headers as they clear plugs and leads.

FYI the extractors off the AU's don't fit onto E-series V8's. They sit out too wide and hit the shock towers.
