    An AT2 225 Truck block slant six can be bored 0.100" and use Holden 173 pistons ( need to bore the piston pin bores to suit the slant pins)......or if theres enough meat in the bores, bore them 0.160" over and fit Holden 179 pistons.

    OK,I think I've got it down right now !!!This week is the next week I was talking about last week !!!With that being said,once I get my head back this week I can bring it up and let my welder work his Majic to make the Aussie Header work with the Aussie Hurricane Intake Manifold !! Then I can confuse myself again when I try to decide which Intake/Exhaust system I want to go with !! Powder Coated Offy/Ceramic Coated Hooker or get the Aussie I/E manifolds PC'd for even more bling !! Damn I hate decisions !!!:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    The Ausssie is VERY attractive; we got ours powder coated an aluminum-looking "silver." Now we've got an unconscionable amount of money in a manifold that is less than optimum for our application. But, it's the only one that "fits" the headers, so I guess we're stuck with it. We tried an Offenhauser and a Clifford, banging and grinding and it's just not gonna work.:angry5: Not with that header...

    What a shame...

    I guess I'm going to have to get serious about what color I want to paint the car as I want to paint the engine to match and do some painting on the ribs of my Offy Valve Cover too !!

    That would be really cool, to have the engine and the body in identical colors. Unusual, too.

    That's a realy nice-looking engine! I just never thought of having the engine and body the same color. What a great idea!!!

    Thanks for the pix!:)

    To say NOTHING of F-A-S-T....:banghead:

    I didn't think so...

    This (from her): "Aw c'mon Bill, I'm supposed to be gettin' some work out of this deal. LOL!!!"

    Was why I wrote this: "Does LeAnna do ceramic coatings?"

    After you had written this: "LMAO,that's what Ceramic Coating's for !!!:iconbigg:"

    Just sayin'...:blackeye:
