HRD1966's Comments:

Gday, Please read below. Expect the un-expected...

Modification Listing

Running 330mm HSV Disc Brakes for pure stopage.


Will be running a 350 Turbo box with lightened tailshaft and 9' Diff.

Engine Work:

Engine will be fully rebuilt using the most state of the art parts including Forged Pistons from the USA and specially made Rods.

Exhaust System:

I will be running a full 3' mandrel bent Exhaust system worth over $5000. The Dump Pipe will be its own exhaust as well in twin drift style pipes with hi flow cats and pipes to reduce noise.


Running 17x8's all round pure show rims. Paint job to be white pearl with ghost flames.

Fuel System:

Hi flow fuel pump to run max pressure at all times with racing fuel filter and racing regulator worth $900 alone.

Head Work:

The head is a stage 3 Yella Terra head that will have a shit load more port work done, 350 Chev Valves and PURE race gear. The head gasket will be a HKS O'Ring Gasket worth $700 alone.

Intake System:

Draw Through Turbo system running a Stromberg Carbi and K&N Air Filter. The turbo will be a T35 ball bearing turbo able to push approx 600HP.


Custom Auto Metre Dash, SAAS Racing Seats, Lightweight door trims and Pioneer Sound System for show perks.

Rolling Stock:

Custom made chassis and fully seam welded for strength and rigidity. Also running a 6 point roll cage for the same reason.


Running Kingspring lowered springs all round and munroe gas shocks. This may be changed due to upgrading of the rear diff.


Running a t35 Turbo with ball bearings able to pump out 600HP. The intercooler is being made by Rays Intercoolers and should be able to handle the Darwin heat.

HRD goes over the pits on Tuesday and we all cross our fingers. Myself and Damo will be taking it down for the first run. If it is passed or when it does it will be at the next drag meet. Sorry to say it wont be doing any burnouts cause I dont have the money for tyres and also the arse end feels a little slipperly!! Will info you more later. Also Jord's I will drop past when shes finished!!

The Project has reached a point of street legal ness. After failing a couple of weeks ago I have spent quite a bit trying to get it all finished. The only thing I have left to do it to change over the pick up and sump of the 186 and then reinstall the motor and tune her up. Currently it is sitting there enjoying its location in the shed. I had the alarm installed last week and it is annoying at times but I can handle it.

I also am able to get insurance (Shannons Insurance) which is a must up here. Sadly a mates commodore was broken into because he did not have an alarm and he hasnt been covered. Hopefully it will different for me.

Matty OUT
