    I took a snap of the cam Gears while at lunch to show the differences too.

    Ive placed the timing mark at the bottom so you can see how different they are in relation to each other.

    Yep I plonked a 5.7 in the Tonner when I pulled the Big Blower engine, fooled it into thinking it’s an e38 6.0L

    Yea, actually now you say that you’re right, maybe only about 45 degrees.  Not sure if there is a recommended minimum contact?

    Just thought i’d share a little something i worked out for anybody running th400 with starter relocation kit and tuff mounts regarding tailshafts. Driveline services australia do a th400 yoke to suit a 1310 uni that is a bit longer than standard stubby th400 yoke and will work safely with the 500mm front tailshaft piece from an auto sedan. Can get a conversion uni joint from 21r holden type to 1310 uni and your golden. The 500 im referring too is measured from centre bearing mount to centre of front uni joint. I assume this is relevent for vl-vs but best to check

    hi guys just tuning in to give my experience with the castle auto 1 7/8 4-1 headers, im using there power mounts (look similar to tuff mount) and there starter swap, the drivers side header does not fit with out major firewall massaging, the headers look great on the ground but that doesnt mean too much if they dont do there intended purpose ie fit a vn with a ls2 motor lol

    ^seems to be a common theme having problems with those headers.  My experience were the 1 3/4″ pacemakers were good, and the CRE 1 7/8″ were not too bad one I split them into 4 spererate pipes which made it easier to fit them on the drivers side.

    I made 508 rwhp with the pacemakers, through a stalled auto, so easy 600+ at the fly.

    yeah I gave trying to fit mine in. I’m going to cut the collector off and run a slip on type and then seperate the headers into 4 individual pieces.

     

    Then an bin if they don’t fit.
