  1. Got the Ute finished today. Finished up all the wiring. Both the 044 and the walbro intank now have there own relays triggered from the stock pump wiring (inertia/roll-over switch will shut pumps off still). Going to put a cover over the relays eventually by won't really matter once the hardlid goes on. Gave it a much needed wash. Had 1 minor f*ck up. I was wondering why the Ute wasnt idling and 044 was making bulk noise and stuttering. After much confusion I ended up having the feed/return lines back to front on the chassis rails. So swapped em round and hooked it all back up and it ran perfect. Deleted the stock filter so now it just has the earls one in the tray. Used a male and a female 5/16th hardline adaptor. And most importantly took it for a spin! Been atleast a month since its seen boost. The shocks are much nicer now softened up. The swaybar makes a noticeable different, feels much more positive. Tramp rods work mint. No binding noises. No skids yet but gave it a stab in second and it just lit them up with no tramp what so ever. Beer time[emoji482]

  2. Ok so had the chance to lean on the new Garrett G2 GTX82 with that ex chaser that was in two weeks ago as it now has a built tailshaft so she's ok to take that initial hard hitting ramp in of boost without wondering if she's going to go all "Twister" on me and split the car in half haha so a big gain and came in a few under the "Dyno Queen" soft ramp tune last time but a respectable 498rwkw @ 21.5 PSI flat and the turbo is coming on as hard and fast as it possibly could The graph says it all .... ( again please excuse the chitty phone pictures )

  3. Just a wee bit of poke....... Fronts will be right once rolled and camber is sorted. The rear rims sit flush with the guard but the pirrellis are pretty wide and I don't want to have the stretched look. I'll probably sort a b series axle to fix that, cant see the guards pumping out that much.

  9. Being a Plumber, I'm going to have a crack at fabricating the cooler pipes myself then get them welded up. Running eboost also means I can delete the factory boost sensor which will make the cold side pipe pretty simple. I'm running 63mm tube so will run a stepped down 90 degree silicon elbow straight off the FG throttle body. A turbosmart vee port pro will be attached probably just after the pipe passes through the inner guard. I was hoping to hide it behind the front bar but I don't have the height. In front of the wheel behind the inner guard can be done, but I don't really like the idea of it being there. It's not like the thing will be out in the rain but I'd rather keep it in the engine bay. From there, it will go back up to BPR fabrication for the custom 4" dump and waste gate plumbing. After that, the plan is to paint the bay then fit the engine and assemble what I can. In a perfect world, I'd like to have it running before painting the rest of the car but I don't know if that's viable given the amount of wiring required - see how we go.

  10. Hey Guys, yea that's right@xr6tforme We managed a 9.30@154 from Tony's car on Wednesday night, making it the 3rd fastest ZF overall, and NSW fastest genuine street driven ZF car I'm extremely proud of everything about this car, it just performs.. it starts, idles, and cruises like a standard car, then raises the hairs on your arms at WOT We will definitely be back out, but will have to travel to heathcote track to run again as Sydney Dragway wasn't too impressed that we snuck through after running the 9.8@151 a few weeks back I'll upload some videos shortly Another customer Steve in his FG ute also managed a 10.4@136 so PB's all round

  12. So went around to my fave brake place Hallam Brake & Clutch (2 Hallam South Rd, Hallam VIC 3803 - ask for Emery) Ph 03 9702 4696 (no I didn't get any incentive - I just keep going back to them for a lot of my brake work) to have the new dba 4000 slotted T3 rotors and Project-Mu NS400 pads installed this morning. They did a great job. Emery had heard about Proj Mu but was first time for him to install them. He said there were not issues bedding them in. I've only driven in them for a few hours but already had to make use of their pull up speed due to incident on SE Freeway this morning that I captured on dash cam Here are some pics of them After and Before Shots After installation of dba4000 slotted T3 rotors and Project-Mu NS400 pads How it looked before installation Side by Side Comparison Genuine Brembos on left had quite a lot of lip on them on the outer and inner edge on both sides and brand new dba4000 slotted T3 on right. Project-Mu NS400 on right look the part and can see genuine brembo pads on left where 2 pot pistons on one side pressed in on pads (see pad lower in pic). Rotor and Pad in place on hoist Clips in place hold pads in place so that when they get very thin - they pads don't move about or even fall out and cause damage to calipers. Might go out on the weekend to check them out better

  18. Next one done and dusted ! must be ute month as this is the third in a row and tonight for drop off is another ute anywhoo this one was a bit special, not in a good way but I definitely had to get my fault finding on and a massive shout out to @Ralph Wiggum for all the help as it's appreciated one @Bretthawk89 was having some issues with his BF XR6T ZF ute where the speedo stopped working after a set of "circumstances" that's quite unusual but resulted in his ZF computer ( TCM )being damaged and needing a replacement that's where it got a bit "random" and after this event ( and failed speedo/cruise/trip ) it came to me to be fixed with a few other issues such as a poor cold start, excessive fuel consumption, failing to rev past 4000rpm and overboosting to 20+psi so to say I had a fair bit to tackle was an understatement haha so kicking things off a set of Genuine ford plugs and coils went in and some siemens Deka 80lb's came straight out for a set of ID1000's a new HD 630cca battery went in and a new set of Ground cables to suit.The SCT X4 was reset to factory calibration and this is where issues arrose ... the X4 tune had a base factory tune in it that had a bunch of un matched TCM/ECU/IC/HIM hardware-software codes so they didn't want to recognise each other and literally threw every code under the sun into the mix working through each hardware module to check base operations in all conditions came up the hardware was fine and a new Base file needed to go into the mix with the ford Genuine IDS program after a successful pairing of all hardware systems and the correct VIN numbers being inserted into the system with software calibrations we had a ute that was playing the game through the process I found some pretty bad VSS sensors that have been immaculately cleaned and a ZF input harness plug that had pins 3/4/5/9 pushed out of "home" and weren't making contact with the ZF All said and done I fixed the comms issue and the speedo was working again, the cold starts are immaculate and a new tune was happening on the dyno after all the process of a full custom tune to suit the mods o the ute she came in performing well at a total of 341rwkw on 14psi flat with a little bump to 15psi to keep the top from falling over to much and she was a happy Turbo ute once again theres definately more in her but for now this is more than enough without the need to push anything to hard especially with 270,000kms on the clock haha I do believe Brett may well be very happy with his daily drive again as she spins up to 6200rpm with blistering gusto and a correct working speedo to see exactly how fast it is now Sorry for the photo quality as the printer still isn't running correctly on the dyno The video is of a few runs before final tune so it's of only 334rwkw

  19. Those offsets n widths don't = poke. You want at least a 9" front. Offset closer to 0 =poke. Brembo clearance mostly depends on spoke design. Generally speaking the more aggressive offset the more room you will have. A 9.5+22 might fit brembos with one spoke design but not another. Below are pics of mine. They are varrstoen 222's. Front19x9.5+22 really ar 19x10.5+22. This particular offset wont clear brembos but they come in +12 which will. These should give you an idea[emoji106] [emoji106]

  22. An xbox or Playstation or Harvey Norman PC is fark'n powerful and flash for 90% of the people who buy them. For a while. A custom PC lasts a lot longer - but can be upgraded later to still be powerful. (same pc from PS1 days still runs quick. PS1 is now a Lada) To add longevity (power/flash wise) to any of the above requires community, modability and desire. No one is going to spend time, nor is the community/desire going to be there to upgrade/hack the xbox, PS or HN PC - will be a new model later to swap over for. The custom PC will have parts swapped out, have the bios entered and tweaked, be broken, fixed, broken and fixed again. To me most cars are xboxes, playstations or HN PC's No matter how great they are at launch - no matter how great the specs are - that's the best they'll ever be. Some cars though - they get "Jailbreak"'d They become the custom PC versions - get tweaked, upgraded, overclocked, broke, fixed, broke and fixed again. Has the Kia got the factory or the community support to be anything other than a console or HN PC? Will it be the next WRX or EVO or FPV or HSV? Or will it be the next Hyundai Soupe?

  26. So I made 350rwkw a few years ago. This is my previous thread. Its a 2007 bf mk2 xr6 turbo in the color breeze. Safe to say I have been a little busy lately... A friend of mine offered to sell me his xr6t with a built motor and zf gearbox done by monster torque at an amazing price. So me and 2 of my best mates hired 2 hoists and swapped the motors and gear box's. Both motors and box's dropped and swapped in about 12-13 hours! Solid day and they both fired up straight away! The legend him self @IH8TOADS retuned my car. Previous tuner.... Lets not go there, Still dirty after the wiring of the fuel pump Mods: Process west stage 2 cooler with throttle body relocation Plazmaman 4" intake Full stainless xforce exhaust, 4" dump 5" cat and twin 2.5" catback ID1000's Process west surge tank with Pierburg pump Ported internal waste gate with 12psi actuator on stock 35/40 Motor: Atomic rods Mahle pistons ARP head studs Billet oil pump gears Crow valve springs The result so far... So when I replaced the 044 with the pierburg I just used the existing wiring. Turns out it didn't have its own power source so it wasn't running at 100% Toads recons we can get more so we shall haha But for now it feels incredible! Took it to the drags and had an ok night. They just scrapped the 60 foot that day so it wasn't as good as I hoped off the line but here's some pictures of the night. Missus does mint pictures! So we feel its still got more to give but will take time and practice. Next on the list is suspension for power cruise. Should also help me at the drags if its set up properly and start saving for a bigger turbo haha. Massive thanks to Toads for the constant help and the inspiring dick punch videos hahaha Also there's a few WA boys here who have helped a lot along the way. Luke (ralph) Aidan, Mark, Steve, Toccie. Much love. Here's some more pics of along the way. Because my level of impatience is quiet, Quiet high I ended up replacing my flex plate in my garage on the floor haha

  29. So the missus officially moved in last week. Spent the weekend sorting out the house, going through our stuff and getting rid of excess crap and finding homes for everything else. I also spent a large portion of my week/weekend putting together furniture. Got an outdoor setting, a table tennis table and some store room shelving...then spent a couple of afternoons oiling the outdoor setting. Also spent many moneys at Bunnings...fark.

  30. Been a quiet week due to all this water about. Got a bit done today Trimmed the inner tub lip and hammed the lip Flat. Should allow for 295 wide rubber hopefully. (Pic pre paint) Shocks installed with new bushes Put the tub back on then started on this fuel system. Ran a few lines then called time for a beer. Hopefully get it finished up this week.

  35. Well funny you say that as I just did one yesterday that went 515rwkw @ 21.5psi .... BUT this is NOT my style of work and purely came down to what a customer wanted. I feel the G2 has 500 in it done correctly ( the way I would normally tune ) when it's an apples for apples comparison against a G1. So yesterday was a mixed emotion day as Jaustech Automotive had a customer come in a few weeks back with a FG mk2 ex chaser and the core requirement was that it had to be a 500rwkw car .... humm ok then, after talks with me I read between the lines as when a customer asks for a ball park, pie in the sky figure it's not very often due to them knowing exactly why or how to get there and this is where it becomes difficult. ultimately you want to give a customer what they want and pay for but at the same time try to relay the pros and cons to each situation but being not my direct customer and just the end tuner I have to work with sometimes less than perfect scenarios and imho this was one I would much prefer to tune a car to it's strongest abilities vs tuning for a single number but it's not my car or money so I did what I had to and many might say what are you complaining about ( big number result= happy customer ) but when it's half as good as it could be it just grinds my gears lol Anyway finished up tuning the car and it did a big number and as safe as possible regarding big boost on a T3 flange with E85 and keeping the head from lifting the graph is less than desirable considering the hardware and how good it could be but with a lesser number uptop but hey I'm flogging a dead horse here GTX G2 3582 Xforce 4* dump/cat/3.5 MS ID1000's plazmaman 1000hp kit 4* intake battery relocation twin feed rail FPR1200 plazmaman surge with Pierberg pump Stock everything else ..... 515rwkw on a peak of 21.5psi and tagging 12.5 afr in the deep end on E85

  41. I tried to check out my car today for a front end knock earned on the cruise and by the time I jacked it up, put an axle stand under the front, taken a wheel off and had a quick look, I was sweating my arse out, so I went went inside and noticed it was 36 degrees at about 1pm today. I went inside, got changed (again), complained about the heat, went to the pub, bought stuff, came home and sat in the aircon. Did compulsory family/kid stuff and now I'm watching netflix. Hows that for motivation?!

  43. Pcmtec editor update for those of you following. Updated the axis view to show all related tables. This is very interesting for all the new tables/axis we have found to help discover what they do. We have found 94 new 2D tables, 250 Tables 1D, 70 Axis and ~6000 Scalars. As you can see a lot of these will be very easy to define as they are obviously load vs rpm tables. Another interesting one is the load and rpm axis for the MBT spark table. People regularly rescale these tables due to running more boost but it turns out they are used by 3 other unknown tables that utilise these axis. So by messing with axis you could be potentially breaking something unknown in the ECU if you use the existing software. In this case the 3 unknown tables are all zero so it is safe to rescale, however there may be others which are not. I will be implementing an auto re-interpolate function soon. So if you do change an axis it will re-interpolate any existing tables that use that axis so the resultant Z value is unchanged. If your new choice of axis means the values can't be maintained it will warn you.

  50. If you mean existing software like SCT, Sniper or HPT then I am not sure. I don't think thing SCT or Sniper community think it is lacking but the BA/BF community on HPT are not ecstatic. If you mean our software then not at all, people have reported back that the "other products" do not have them either. In fact we have things like the exhaust cam retard that no one else has. What is being demonstrated here is that there are a lot of parameters we have found and the software is helping getting them defined for the customers. Our aim is to make the product flexible enough to handle the "missing parameters" and automate the population of them across all the calibrations. Not sure what other products have these features though Does anyone know if SCT has the boost sensor mapped yet or if HPT have put it into the BA?
