    So not much has happened lately, lost motivation for awhile. All though I still ordered parts and what not. Going to summernats got me the motivation I needed lol.

    New valves.

    Thought I throw the front end together just to see how good then new manual rack and coilovers were.

    Also purchased a vb commodore for my partner for her bday, to clean up and put on club rego to enjoy on the weekends. This will be her project car she’ll work on.. Lol

    Is that one of those power steering racks that’s been converted?

    What made you go down that road? Clearance or that manual “feel”

    Just refresh my memory, this is purely a track car,correct ?

    Converted one from Grimm Industries. Just wanted to run manual one. Didn’t want to much shit hanging on the motor lol.
    Gonna be a track/burnout car but still street registered. Lol

    Yea just the cheapies. Having a little trouble with them being a little bit wobbly at the top where the bush and plate meet..

    Some updates..
    Heads all ported, machined + milled
    Oil pump preped
    Front cam bearing + cam bolt mod
    Still need to paint block and waiting on the cometic head gaskets and hardened push rods. Then she’ll be ready to start up!

    Also starting working on the bay again, redone the boxed headlight tops and welding up the last of the holes and heaps of grinding. Haha.
