Compared to previous worked pinto's-Big ports ands standard valves,would'nt work under 2000RPM.Big valves,mild port with a bigger cam lift and duration,D04 cam.No big rev yet,ran cam in-retensioned head. This engine is more drivable

Love the new door cards

Where did you get the strut brace from ?

I somehow don't think i'll ever make the canberra gathering.. my car is always in a million pieces at this time of the year with some master plan to make it faster, haha

I made a blow by canister out of an alloy anodised drink bottle which i turned upside down and bored some holes in. You can then open the bottom up to drain it out... didnt look too bad either.

I didn't realise the problems you had before the canberra meet, good work, car looked trick. I liked the way you have the stereo done at the front with the speakers behind the console excellent idea i thought. Great work.
