  1. on 98 fuel . I made some mistakes jamie said . The tach adaptor that the auto electric guy fitted is wrong hooked up . Then I stuffed up with the starter motor wirering .the soldering I did did not work as it had voltage drop . It still has aftervthey re done it so it might be the new battery or the battery relocation cable that I done 3 years ago .no idea so that will take some sorting out .

  3. It's a bloody shame to see a USEFUL moderator hang up his title after all these years and so much knowledge that he willingly hands over for nothing will walk out the door with him thank you for all your efforts around here Luke as very few will take the time to see what they've lost

  4. Started working on the backyard Luckily my yard is only small, because I have moved a sh*t load of crappy rock filled soil out and then brought 7 cubic meters of crushed rock in to try level it all out Plan is a couple small garden beds and fake turf the rest Got my rough layout, gonna brick the borders of the garden beds for a neat look, then I'll have to level and compact the crushed rock Gives me something to do when I have a free weekend Before shot - can't really see how much it actually slopes away from the house After pictures - showing all the crushed rock

  6. I'm hoping to be able to finish the backyard this year too. Concrete slab (cause wog) 11m x 5m saw cut into 1m squares. Very happy with the way it turned out. Had a few issues submitting the plans for the pergola as they require it to be 4m off the back fence (even though the neighbours house is only 2m off the back fence. So we ended up with a 7m x 4.5m pergola to be installed once the pool is complete (may just extend it down the track once the pool is signed off) Plumbing and electrical hanging out is for a 4.5 metre wide brick outdoor kitchen with a granite benchtop. It'll have a sink 4 burner gas bbq and a 1.2m wide charcoal bbq aswell.

  9. Yeh and some would argue that using a control tyre only leads to a fugde number not a real condition of what the said tuned car will actually do on the street with the actual tyres it's wearing heck why don't we start putting in "controlled" hardware into each car so we can just tune the engine to it's potential and then worry about the differences later we tune what a car has, not what we would like it to have

  10. Picked up my fg from Aaron tonight. The car was all clean, engine bay detailed, he took the time and explained all of what he did for me eg full service and tune +hardware. I never met Aaron before but always found him good to msg and was very helpful. I had no doubt in leaving my fg for him to take care of and took his advise all the way through the service and tuning procedure. Totally happy with the result, the car feels totally different power wise and butter smooth to drive. Really happy I decided to go with him for the work and after driving my car tonight won't be taking it anywhere else but back to Aaron. Cheers mate! Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

  14. So one or two things have been going on lately ... had Mickos beautiful BA Turbo in for a service and a battery isolation switch as the car is about to be parked up for a very long time between starts now Then I had Patrick bring his BA Turbo in for round two on the mods and tuning spectrum and that included a set of ID1000's, valve springs,Venom 4* Dump/cat/Y section Garrett 8psi actuator and a retune .... well it all started off a bit average because once the rockercover came off it was clear the intake cam was starting to "Pitt" and wear was reasonably high so we had a chance to drop a set of FG camshafts in and that's what happened the ol BTR was in need for some love so that received a major service whilst up on the hoist then out with the old and in with the new oil but that's not where it ended unfortunately and in true form the coil packs gave up the ghost on the second run once on the dyno, ok no worries new set in and away I go with the tuning and low and behold on the final run whilst preparing for the "Video" run the heater pipe T piece split wide open and showered everything in the dyno cell with coolant ....humm Great lol so that was the end of that and I have unfortunately no video run and a few hours of cleaning coolant off of everything so all said and done the cooling system copped a bit of love and shes better than new now and final results are a bit off the pace as I was truly hoping for the 300 club but the dance between boost levels and power with the 170,000k skinny rod beast is always a dance done slowly and mindful but the gains are gains ! and a full detail of the engine bay was in need after the coolant spray Onto Jakes Beast and that freshly built engine now is having a set of new Atomic 4+ billet camshafts and Atomic VCT lockout sprockets for some lumpy lump next up is @Panda Eyes BA that needed a bit of BTR love in the regards of a full flush out and new filter and pan gasket,Transmission cooler be mounted correctly and some temp data logging, also fixed his "Performance mode" that had stopped working along with the cruise control. Then @ripped6 has had a service and a check over in preparation for the off street drags next Friday night and a clean bill of health she has at 476rwkw going strong ! hope to see her go Mid to low 10's this time

  17. Sorry Marco...forgot to msg back. Only picked the car up last week. Shipping of parts took a while and I told them not to rush...but still, least I got a bunch of sh*t for free. So for those playing at home...result was "timing chain slack due to timing chain tensioner failure, guides broken and chain damaged". Think he said right guide and they just ordered a full kit. Good news was when resealing the timing cover, they fixed the slight oil leak that was there (and found one more leak which was covered). They also replaced the "drive belt tensioner". Total for job was just over 2k. So ive cracked the 11k mark for claims lol Going back tomorrow cause they wanted to check over it after a week to see if the noise is still ok. Plus they are replacing my thermostat and changing my rocker cover over (which should have been done at the time of doing the chain, but cant complain cause free). Thank fark for warranty

  21. Wmmfg. I got my consumer main replaced from my main board all the way to the power lines. I also had everything in the main board replaced so every circuit in the house is individually rcd protected. I'll definitely be getting the same guy to rewire the entire house later in the year.

  34. The forum will never be like it was ten years ago in 2007 these vehicles were at there peak, people tuning and modding them left right and centre. These days most people have either maxed out cars potential or there credit cards. There are still a few new crew jumping into the seat of a turbo barra but most of the questions have been answered before and are catalogued in the depths of the forums server. So your left with a huge chat room for open conversations. Which has the usual banter and piss taking, some get upset but most know how it all works around here. The forum is not broken at all. As keithy said it's a great community of big kids chatting about anything and everything. Just my 2c's worth.

  37. He's an XFT fanboi and it will never change. I don't know why you would bother changing the tyres on a car when all your looking to do is get the best out of the setup it has not chase the 5kw the last car had over this one.

  39. So had the pleasure of having @darrellk 's FG MK2 XR6T in for a big going over and that's led into doing a full custom tune and a set of ID1000's thrown into the mix it all started off with doing a big service on the car changing every fluid and filter and giving it good check over as he's only recently acquired the car from country SA its only got 60,000kms on the clock but had a Venom bolt in cat section and an X-Force 3.5* mild steel exhaust system on it so obviously had the check engine light on etc etc made the most of what we had avaliable and coupled that up with a set of Genuine ID1000's and a modified Airbox to tie into the tune, only catch was we're running the stock intercooler and factory pipe kit so it had to be easy going so I didn't blow any pipes up along the way. Made a best of 294rwkw @ 14 PSI but settled it back to 290rwkw @ 12 PSI, being manual it goes bloody well now ! onto bigger intercoolers and intakes in due course

  50. Dash, leather seats, air-con, window electronics, windows, spare, jack - GONE! I must say, I'm pretty impressed with the weight savings so far. At a guess I would say at least 40kgs..., and for what!? - just a few minor luxury sacrifices... I'm now in the final stages of weight savings and am looking to use some carbon fibre wrap on a few panels. I reckon I'll save another -200 grams at least. Impressed...? Read on. I also picked up some stuff called Nulon Octane Booster. It's "Pro-Strength", this stuff... which is Pro Strength. It cost me $23 and noticed it got an average 5 star rating (out of 5 stars...!) from 3 people who bought it on the SuperCheap website. It looks pretty hardcore - just look at the bottle, it's black... and it's GOT FLAMES...! Definitely not for the light hearted... Anyways, I've highlighted in the below product statement the important parts for those interested in taking it to the next level like me: "Nulon Pro Strength Octane Booster (PSO) stops engine pinging (detonation) by instantly boosting the octane rating of all petrol. PSO maximises horsepower and eliminates hesitation on acceleration. PSO is specifically designed for use in high performance and race engines with carburettors or fuel injection. PSO is safe for use in all unleaded petrols, race petrol and avgas. I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious...
