Cheers Carlos. Yes I was pretty happy with the ET mate. I knew of a Datsun 1600 with SR20DET that used to run the same time, mid 14's. So I'm more than happy with how it goes. If I bolted the 4 speed back in and changed to a 3.89 diff ratio it would have a few more tenths in it. And better again with an LSD and GRP1 axles!

Nice work. How does it drive on the road? I am taking it that it should still be fairly streetable with that cam?

Thanks Damion. Still drives great on the road. Lives up to its name "ultimate road" camshaft. Good idle, good power from low down and sounds quite harmless until... :)

Hi guys. Just letting you know the car has been sold and is now in Melbourne. Frank the new owner will be doing full paint panel and interior restoration. He said it's going back to the original yellow ochre. So keep and eye out for it down there. Onto my Denim pack now. Aiming for 12's!! Cheers

Very lucky man Haydn.............look after "her" and don't modify too much if you want it to keep appreciating in value.
Keep all original parts inc engine in case it means an extra "mozza" when sale day comes, even decades from now........originals like this one may soon fetch XYGTHO silly money, as theyre nigh on impossible to find.  Great heir-loom to leave the kids !

She's long gone BEEVEE. Original motor went to a guy who need a 681F block for his genuine 1300GT. Grille went to a twin cam owner who needed to change from round headlights back to rectangle. I took the car to the original owner, Veronica not long before I sold it. I could tell she was a little disappointed with the very subtle changes I had made. But her husband Arthur was well impressed. Loved the engine & webers!
