    I like rpm, believe in the power/weight ratio and it is reliable for a year of motoring. So i choose the Xflow pushrod.

    I chose pinto. Easily tuneable, cheap to buy - unlike cossie/lotus, cheap to tune, very reliable, and you can get good BHP and torque

    Cossie Turbo, massive power for not a lot of cash (compared to other options)

    but for sound, you can't beat a lairy BD on big carbs

    Its the ultimate for power but its so god damn heavy. Still wouldn't say no to one but for some reason a turbo doesn't seem right in an old skool Ford...dunno why though

    x-flow for me. Light as, and pretty powerful if done right, and a lor higher revving than most.

    cossie turbo
    just for the fun factor if nothing else.
    and for the faces on drivers with new cars who try to have a 29yr old banger off at the lights
