Re: Header Coating

Most places will usually get anywhere from $150.00 - $200.00 for ceramic coating a header. Most powder coating facilities offer ceramic exhaust coatings these days, which means you can probably have it done locally instead of shipping your header somewhere. A quick Google search shows a couple powde...

Re: Barra 4.0 to a c4 transmission?

To the OP; go the single cam! :D There's what appears to be a late EL for sale in Washington state right now for $650.00 O.B.O. This is from the same seller that I sourced my AU.

Re: Farmall inline Six

Thanks for sharing this project! Fascinating stuff. I'm an engine junky, and really appreciate getting to learn about engines I've never had any experience with; particularly custom builds like this one. Very nicely done!!

Re: GM 250's on 25% nitro!

Re: GM 250's on 25% nitro!

Not sure... You could try posting a forum link in the comments on the YouTube videos of these cars. There's TONS of videos of Brazilian I-6 stuff in action. I couldn't stop and ended spending all last night watching them. Amazing stuff going on there.

Re: GMC 250's on 25% nitro!

They're big on the Ford 6's as well as slant 6's, too, from what I understand. GM never offered a V-8 in Brazilian-produced GM products, so the 250 has a long, rich history of modifications and racing in Brazil. There's even companies in South America that produce billet blocks, exotic cylinder head...
