these are cool motor alright.. buddy had the 186 .. it was bored to 192 'yella terra' head , triple carbs, lumpy cam.. in the GTR torana body.. thing was a rocket ! (same as this for those who aren't sure).. I repaired the front a couple times for him.. the he got rid of it...

a real cheap speed option for these is to put a 149 head on 186/202 ,, they have bigger valves , and offer a higher compression ratio. then a twin carb manifold. just that added a reasonable chunk of horses to these motors.. add all that to an Australian 3 speed vertical shift ("impala") brand floor shift (stock car boys love these shift assemblies) ... ahh the good old days

duct tape can't fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.

Holden is being binned in favour of a 265ci Aussie Chrysler 6. 200hp vs 92hp of the holden is a no brainer
