  4. Hey all, I've entered the Shitbox Rally this year with my mate Steve (Jonte). We've aquired a 180b wagon that is truely worthy of the name 'Shitbox'. http://www.shitboxrally.com.au/ Each team has a goal to raise $5000 for the Cancer Council. The target of this year is over $1 million. There is around 200 teams participating in the rally, with the budget on each car to be up to the value of $1000. Jonte & I (Karl), have entered as South African Game Park Hunters, & Rally champions Hailing from Durban. Here is a few video's of our aquisition of the 'Jungle B'.. (warning, we might be taking the piss, so, Extreme sarcasm exists in these video's) If your from South Africa, toughen up.. http://youtu.be/e0q8zgF8tzo We took the 'Jungle B' to carlovers for a clean.. http://youtu.be/AO8Zs-a1XO8 Getting it running on 'makers mark' http://youtu.be/IevfAQuYX_k So, we are organising a Nostalgic Car Cruise to Wisemans Ferry , on Sunday 24th March 2013, down to the park,(on the pub side) for a bbq and a mini show n shine ( very low key event). I know alot of people are heading to the Nationals the weekend after, so its a perfect time to get your car out & see how it runs before the big drive down south. I'll be inviting a few other marques, like the mazda's, toyota's & the like. So all cars of nostalga, are welcome to come. Entry fee is $10per car which gives the driver a S/Sanger ,from the BBQ, with all the money going to the Cancer Council, for the Shitbox rally 2013. If you would like to donate & help our support of the Cancer Council, here are our details http://fundraise.shitboxrally.com.au/teamjungleb The cruise will run from Mcgraths hill Macca's ,(MEET UP AT 10.30 FOR A 11AM LEAVE) down Wisemans Ferry road , down into the Park. I was going to do the run down via the river road, but it had 2 dirt sections in it still, so its a bit rough for some of the cars coming along. I might do some maps & make it run 2 for those who don't mind the dirt !! Look forward to seeing you all there on the day !! Karl..

  12. This is my latest 1600 i bought last month, and thought i'd start a thread on it. I'll be Sticking with the L series and trying out a few combo's with the parts ive been collecting over the last few years.. Here's a shot the day after i purchased 'Gordo' 800" border=0> 800" border=0> 800" border=0> You can see it has the 'bankstown racing' springs all round. Damn thing couldnt roll away with all that neg camber... Was a complete bitch to jack up... 800" border=0> . The car came with a L20B T motor that had a fortune spent on it 800" border=0> ... But due to needing a blue slip, ive pulled it out and re-installed the L16 for rego( with SU's , a SSS Cam and extractors).. .. 800" border=0> . Ove the next month or so , i'll be building the Engine for it. Ive sourced a Early FIA Group 2 cylinder head and matching manifold, with 50mm Mikuni's, Big isky cam( .580"lift ), titanium valves + locks, Arias dome top pistons, shot peened /polished rods, knife edged crank, nissan motorsports balancer, aluminium flywheel .. etc etc... should be good for around 230HP at the flywheel... All that with hubcaps and venetians !!!.
  13. sure did.. the belt did jack shit.... old gordo had too much power .... i'll end up wrapping it in carbon, like you said.. might do the roof as well... Can't be asked to paint it this side of the nats...
  14. Alot of water under the bridge since last april. Installed the Stroker , for a run over to S.A for Datelaide. (may 2012). Old gordo, went like a boar all the way.. Been racing a few times around eastern creek for the Motor Magazine twilight nights.. Finally got access to a dyno ( Insight Motorsport). ran it up on tuesday night, with the following specs. Std V91 (bluey) cyl head with wade 72 deg cam. 89mm bored 200b block with all the parts listed in the previous post. same 45mm webers used in the first dyno run a few years back. ( Std S2 V91 head with med>low comp pistons = 72 kw atw.) Ran 98 kw on its first run. !! Changed the chokes from 36 to 38mm. and it ran 104 kw.. Knocked back the timing 2 deg to run a 108.5 kw. We ran it up with & without the Pipercross filter.. Made Zero HP diff, on or off.... Next step, to run a pair of 50mm mikuni's to see how much we can get out of a cammed std low comp L20b with a 2.4 displacement. Hoping for around 115-120 kw atw..
