About a 3 week turnaround, also the chap can do inlet manifolds. Finally, he supplys Kent cams at reasonable prices. Really nice bloke and I cant wait to pick up my head :pilot:

Spot on mate, no grumbles at all. I'm guessing the head to have added around 20BHP, can't be bad eh? :pilot:

You in the market then bud?

Not much point in guessing - get it on a rolling road and find out...

I should do Mike, but I can't seem to find them. Swear I uploaded them onto my Photobucket too.

I had a look at his website - the work looks pretty good, and I like the reassuring pictures of a middle aged bloke in overalls!

If anyone further east is looking to get head work done, I know and use the guy who did all the GTI Engineering heads, and supplies, TSR, C&R, Stealth, and many more. He's a one man operation, based between Bicester and Brackley. 30 years of experience and very reasonably priced. PM me if you want contact details.

So the car would be off the road while the chap does the work? dont spose theres a cylinderhead business that give you a spare head whilst you run around is there? (wishful thinking? me? never!) would a pierburg 1B5 (i think) be adjustable enough to cope with head, 4 branch, cam & dizzy? or would a weber be a better bet? and can the standard airbox be butchered to fit over a weber? sorry to jump in on the thread with a load of questions but I really need to decide what I'm gonna do with the 'Roc if I keep it...


do I really want a carb'd valver? answers on a postcard...

You could always try a place that might offer an exchange head? Least you won't have a probelm with the car being off the road toooo long.

Should be easy enough to find a spare head to send off to be worked on, then fit that.

Don't know anything about the Pierburg, but I found the Weber can cope with head, cam and misc mods up to 125-130bhp. The standard airbox fits straight over the correct Weber conversion.
