Thanks Lyns' i said before they're 215cc - they're actually 210cc port Mongoose for the 3.9" bore, 66cc chambers & 84cc exhaust ports. Picked them up for $3102.

Oh ok. I was looking at some of those myself but it's hard to find anyone who sends CPP to Australia so I thinkI'm going with The Right Stuff signature series. Seem to be pretty similar to those and only about $80 postage through ebay.

I bought mine direct from CPP, Jas'.
They were really helpful but i shipped them through my own agent.
I'd be careful if you're getting yours registered though, i had no problems with my engineer because i used a GM product.
An after market product might be a problem if he doesn't know them.

Yeah brakes can be tricky. The right stuff ones use pbr calipers too so shouldn't be a problem.

Good to see you're on top of it Jas'. I wouldn't have picked them as PBR's, they looked too fancy. Very nice mate, shame i didn't see them earlier.

Almost ready to put some more paint back on after rubbing everything down.
Got the rear interior back 'wally-bits', A-pillars, dash and fire wall to prime.
Then the diff, control arms, sway bar, trans x-member, stub axles, caliper brackets, centre console & etc's to colour on a nice dry day....hmmm

Back 'wally-bit'
