    Hq Belmont Wagon (the 'Grocery Getter')

    Hey all, last 2 months i have been looking for a tuff streeter, somthing i can Drag Race/Roll Race etc, i have wanted to do Vic Drag Challange for the last couple years now and would really like to attened next year!!!! Any how havent really found what i have wanted so i am now thinking of building my Streeter up, HQ Belmont Wagon. Red 202, 3 on the tree.

    I have 5 options in mind

    1. Keep it as a Red 202, Paint & Panel and restore it back into its prime days.

    2. Build a stout 6 cylinder setup, either Turbocharged or Supercharged ( and probley only run 13s)

    3. Ls1/2 Cammed etc, 9 inch & TH400.... have a nice 11 second streeter.

    4. Ls Single Turbo, aftermarket ecu, built donk with a borg warner or pro boost 42 size turbo. Th400 & 9inch

    5. My Favorite, 400 + Cube Small Block Chev, Powerglide & 9 inch, and on the bottle for the track & roll racing. Leave the body as is for the moment, untubbed and on et streets 235 or 255...

    I am not 100 % sure if this is the right car to build atm and it will be a half budget build, not a 7 second car but will be aiming for a high 9 second streeter.
    Here are some current photos of the old girl

    Sweet wags!

    I reckon if your on a budget and aiming for 9's eventually, then LS turbo is the only way your going to get there for cheap.

    However, a small block on nos is also a good option

    Ok, but you plan on doing drag challenge with this? that wont be cheap what ever way you decide.

    Nothing wrong with a Holden 308 for a bit of cruiser fun.

    Have a few parts already that will make this build cheaper, BBC could be on the agenda but was looking at going the sbc route for quicker build and abit easier on Roadworthy in QLD.

    Sorry mate, i just realized i repled to the wrong comment. Was talkimg about the twin turbo big block setup not the ls turbo. Yes the LS Turbo could be a nice cheap setup, taking the risk on a stock bottom end. It is on the cards mate

    Leave this alone. Buy another one and kill the old man twice with the biggest angriest motor you can afford and big wheels.

    The important question is does it have those dash air vents that you can flick once you get up to speed and they keep spinning?

    Not many Belmonts around anymore let alone unmolested ones, I'd personally leave it stock and restore it, not that many other people would I guess.

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    Weren't the Belmonts the most basic spec Kingswood you could buy? No floor mats, no radio, bench seats and three on the tree. I'm a little surprised it has 202.
    Yes we Chemistry

    Turbo LS is your cheapest option

    If your going to leave it the green HQ wagon with the turbo LS from QLD was for sale about a week or two ago

    So got the old girl going today, hasnt been driven for a month, battery was dead so replaced it. Started first wind, cruised the old girl around for 2 hours today espically being a sad day with Holdens end of a era.... nearlly conviced to build a small block chev and drop in this old girl, really like the idea of a 427 or so sbc, 12.9.1 comp , e85 , AFR or Racer Pro Heads. Carby & on the bottle. Would make a very cool streeter, N/A for cruising and a small spray on the strip. 9 inch, th400 Etc. I saod i would never build a car again aha, espically a project. What goes through the mind of a 21 year old !!!!!

    Belmont is so povo it's not even a Kingswood. But as with most things of the era you could order pretty well whatever combo of shit you wanted

    Yes and No in that order.

    Do the LS route for the cheaps, get a 4.8/5.3 with the gen 4 rods and add s400 turbo, load 15psi into it and hang on
