Mine has a diff head from either a diesel or a coach version. Seems to be about 8-9% taller. Mostly used on the open road so it's a definite plus for economy. Replaced as the original whined like fuck.

Probably no good for Dunedin then. It's already slow enough going up hills.

My Datsun engine has a total loss replacement system. This is because of two reasons..

1 : Its a British design engine with nothing more than an alloy head added (apparently..)

2 : It's been installed into a British car so its just trying to fit in with what goes with the territory.

I'll cut you Alex.........

Semi ling but not really worth starting a thread, has anyone mucked around with the Holden 3.8 motors? Pretty keen on another fun car but priced out of VL's, VN SS' etc. Seen a few people in Aussie with turbo 3.8's, anyone done it? Just want a fun street car that I could do the odd skid in/take to the drags occasionally. Thinking 255's, LSD and a turbo (just want it to do hektik doses tbh). Sound plausible or nah? Also inb4 V6's are yuck.

Buick turbocharged those engines in the 80s with good results. Or get a superchizzled one and swap whiny boi for spoolie boi. Look up what the yanks do with the buick V6. It's madness

Rubber grommets/bungs etc.. 

Wheres a good place to buy em?

I visited the local rubber merchants (who I fucking despise intensely) this morning.  Everything in their inventory is imperial.  Less than zero use on my build. 

What's everyone's go to? 

What sizes you need? I take it Para failed to provide the necessary?

I literally only required like 5 grommets. I dont want anything other than exactly the ones I need.

Yes I want them Naow.

What size do you need?, I have some that fit about a 30mm hole plus I might still have some that fit about a 10mm hole, did have some big ones but not sure if I can find them, they are ex factory early Mazda ones.

Edit, I read you wanted bungs, also have grommet, they are about 20mm od
