Triumph TR6 - Moderate Improvements

As the third clutch was being installed, the thrust washer problem was identified. Seizing the opportunity, I requested that my mechanic put somne zip into the car, without sacrificing reliablity.

They have recommended a .003 re-bore, shaving the head, beefed up head springs, a 150-Hp cam, a lightened flywheel, balancing, electronic ignition and a header. The option of HS6, or weber, is open.

I trust my shop with my daughter. Is there something else I should be pursuing for zip and reliability, given the the engine is currently broken down? I am assuming a new crank is part of this.

Have them shot peen the rods and install new bolts.
I'd try a Goodparts triple manifold myself.
Headers are a PITA with these cars.
Some port work on the head sure can help with some bigger valves, but that can get pricey.

have fun!
