p.s the 1.65 is the common holden ratio.
You seem to have quite a bit of experience for a 23 year old. Well done. When this project is complete will you be able to give a general run down in price as well as what was done. I'm curioius as mods down the track for my car will be inevitable. I'd love to do a cam/chip/head port ect.

It may be the best factory upper and lower but it's still got nothing on an Edelbrock performer or TFS trackheat intake.

Re: Mild mods in Melbourne to improve the T3 package

Update is, the engines finished, assembled and should be back in its bay in the next day or two. Then i think the dyno tuning and ecu mods will be done, converter modified and 3.73 gears. Chris has a load of pics of before and after which he will give me on a disc and then we will post with his dyno sheets. This could take a couple of weeks to sort, he is extremely busy, and hopefully I will have the car back in the next week or so.

As Cobra has mentioned the STD manifold is good for a factory unit, that’s about it, because the crack in the bottom of the plenum didn't leak when pressure tested and the fact we want keep the STD factory look, its stays.

Re: Mild mods in Melbourne to improve the T3 package

Just a pic of the lurvly stroker crank. Bores have been plateau honed, new molly rings and crankshaft linished. New tri-metal bearings have been used.
