    put a rb30 or V6 into it, can cost less than a grand, id call that pretty cheap considaring the gains.

    Tottally missed the carb bit, Im suprised I was even able to post last night :p

    CHEAP mods....
    34ADM Weber Carby, great for power and economy - Shouldnt cost anymore then $150 to get everything done, shop around you could do it for under $100.
    Scrap the EST and fit a Blue Motor, or VK EFI Dissy - $40 - Great for realibility, slightly more responsive and better on fuel.
    Fit electric thermo fan - Under $100 if you shop around, about $300 if you go all out and use AU Thermo Fans.
    Extractors - $50 + Fitting
    2 1/4 Inch exhaust - $250ish

    Then you can look at removing, power steering, air-con emmisions and **** if you feel the need. But thats about the limit without opening up the engine, and less you bolt a dirty supercharge on, or a turbo.

    pull the head of or get a nother head get some work done to it put a cam in extractors carbie manifold and decide whether you want eventually want to go all out or if its just piss farting around till you get a v8 if ya serious then go tripples if ya mucking around go a downdraught webber or ww stromberg

    no need to go rb or anythign the 202 has a fair bit of punch if ya do the right things to them

    not sure you really need a new carb if you havent done anything else to it?? the fan would be the best bang for your $, then changing the diff ratio?

    First check if it seized. the exhaust choke is between the exhaust and the manifold on one of the pipes .If it is not seized best of leave it alone. The hard part is getting the exhaust of the manifold without snapping the bolts. When u get the choke out the easy way is to cut the butterfly of the shaft. If snap the bolts on the manifold get extractors.
