I picked up my new N/A Y/B today, came home had a look in my garage and found RS alloy engine mounts and alternator bracket, and I have bought a set of 48s tonight as well

Query - what sort of work has gone into the cylinder head to enable 48's or 50's to work, as by all accounts YB heads are the worst for NA airflow even compared to a Pinto? Inlet ports are too small, you can't hog them out due to studs, water / oil passages and not a lot of options for offset &/or larger valves?

Standard they are terrible because they are done for a forced induction, there is enough material in ports to open them up enough so they make great power in N/A form, the new cast heads have even more material so the ports can be enlarged even more, as long as you get an engine tuner that knows what he is doing they make great power, WPE who does my engine has been doing N/A Y/Bs for over 20 years and knows them inside and out

I don’t know what struts to fit first, I should try the hi specs seeing as I have used the APs

To make my life so much better to rebuild my escorts, I have decided to have the covered seating area and store room removed from my garage

So which room in the house have you now allocated as the store room ?

I’ve got a summer house at the back of the garden I will use that for storage and the garage to work in
