When I read about his passing way back, I figured somebody posted & I musta missed it. Sux!

Had the 2.6 singing. Idle lope/cam sounds 'rowdy'
I wonder what motor/tranny specs on the setup. Looks like low 9s without spray? .....still IRS?

off-the-shelf cams & springs seem to be holding back the 2.6 more than the standard cyl head
Your old setup appeared to be unusually efficient... 12.4s et, street starquest at only 14psi was a standout
I remember you limit redline ~6200 and low boost.
Switch to, say a hx40 or pte62 ~35psi along with a short runner intake, on your old setup.... you'd probably hit 600

What heads are there for the 2.6. is there any thing I have missed... ;)  looks like I will get back in to the 2.6
what level of street performance hasn't a plain ol pos non jet head achieved ?
From way back you seem just a turbo(+ boost) shy of your '600' goal... and maybe a short runner intake + injectors?
2.6 cam science is vodoo, but your aussie cam certainly delivered the goods from what I recall

always preferred the design of the older stuff:
flatty body
b-piller vents
flatty door mirrors
early 'sculptured' cloth seats
manual AC controls
that digital speedo & tach, combined with analog meters

a clean widebody slammed on polished oe 7/8s.... straight out the box, looks hella tough tho
