    So bit bored decided I could write a thread on the build of my POS I bought this car in 2012 when I was 16 as my first car and its just got out of control since haha. I'll do a list of current specs plus pevious build specs. and probably copy most of the build from other forums.. Current pb is a [email protected] manual Specs 1996 Ef Xr6 Motor -Stock ef bottom end with ~300000km no rod bolts or new ring/bearing I popped one cap off to check bearings then put it back on because the motor had a blocked pickup and took 30secs to build oil pressure in the car I pulled it from haha -AU falcon head ported by me with pep-pro stainless valves seats all re cut by my mate at his machine shop. -Stock Au mls gasket with arp studs holding it down -Surecam custom hydraulic cam used the closest master profile he had to the specs I was looking for..basically about [email protected] 540"lift its pretty angry for a baby cam... -Crow valve springs with stock Au rockers and lifters Intake and fuel system -Tunnel vision intake manifold -Fg fly by wire throttle body -2200cc injectors -Fuel cell in the boot, 100 micron filter>1400hp holley dominator pump>10 micron filter> AN8 feed to and from rail> proflow fuel reg. Exhaust and turbo -Turbo manifold I built at home. steam pipe 6 into 1 collector divided into the t4 flange 40m pipe off each side of the collector merged into a 60mm gate -Turbosmart 60mm power gate (14psi spring) -2.5" screamer vented behind the front tire -Garret gt3788r .89 rear housing -4" dump straight off the turbo into the 4" exhaust with one big muffler before the diff. Engine management -Link G4+ Extreme ecu running sequential ign/inj. -Racepak iq3 dash -6x ls1 coils mounted on a bracket off the intake manifold bolts -Fuel/oil/coolant pressure sensors all fed to the ecu -Fuel/oil/coolant/air temp sensors all fed to the ecu -Ethrolle controled by the G4 with a BA pedal in the car and FG throttle body. -Boost controlled by the G4 with a 4 port solenoid -Launch control/2step with a switch, speed and time control so it doesnt come on when shifting gears. Gearbox and diff -T56 converted from a ba turbo -Direct ceramic solid centre twin plate. (3100lb of clamp now) -Final drive built 3.5" chro moly tailshaft with strange billet yoke, 1350 series unis front and back. -ATM it has 3.45 borgwarner diff with a spool standard 28 spline axles. Getting a 9" built atm with 35spline axles 3.7 gears strange nodular iron carrier with a full spool. that's about it really the whole car is built by me from fab work,engine building to tuning so stuff only gets done when I can be I <3 Bananased doing it.. Will start with this and add some more in another post.

    XR8 pulls up beside me at the lights on the way home tonight he revs his engine it sounds like it has an aftermarket exhaust I look over, but drivers window has a heavy tint. I see the lights change to orange, then red. . . . . . I get that funny feeling of adrenaline coming on counting down 3 seconds from red to my green, I load the transmission under brakes the rear of my car squats down. . . . . . . I hear the XR8's revs rise GREEN, release brakes, kick accelerator to the floor in one quick, easy motion I launch, seems slow, I hear the rear tires clawing for grip the rear of the car getting slightly left of center the hiss of the 4 inch intake filling the cabin car changes to second as I cross the other side of the intersection, making a very satisfying bark from the standard exhaust have to back off to remain in the speed limit another huge hiss from the intake as excess boost is forced back to the pod filter look over to the other lane chopped him bra ! drive home with stupid grin

    Lots going on all the time and some beautiful rides getting the golden touch lately hahaha anyway had Sam bring his FG XR6T 50th in for a heat exchanger removal and one of my Transmission cooler kits installed Then Had Rich’s F6 needing a set of pads and I’ve gone in a different direction this time to try a new product that Matty @ RACEBRAKES has recommended I try out and with a few hundred kms already on them I can say very confidently that they are a brilliant pad and may very vell be giving the Pmu’s a solid kick up the bum in the street pad category. Specs are 500*+ and super low dust with sim backs for zero squealing and dry installation The “ol death rumble” come to visit @Mrpunk‘s FG stock turbocharger at nearly bang on 100,000kms so we had decided for now a stock genuine Garrett rebuild was in order and Dion asked ever so nicely for a spekky engine bay detail and how could I say no to a good clean up ! Before After Gave @bloosted a had doing a Diff bush and front link pins on a Terri using the new Whiteline black series bush that are my pick lately for comfort and durability And finally @Roo32 has a new set of wheels and she’s looking really nice now with that suspension I installed a few weeks back all settled in

    Most of my photos of this build are on photo bucket so have added some to imgur for people that dont have the photobucket embed link fix. 10 second manual timeslips had quite abit of trouble with clutch slipping plus missing gears which can be seen in the slow shifts on the data log.

    Morning peeps. Ford Ranger Raptor. 2.0 twin turbo diesel. Produces a whopping 157 kw with 500 nm of torque. Price expected to be excess of 80k. Made in Thailand for peanuts. Who's gonna buy such a vehicle? Overly rich farmers? Over paid CEO's No. Job site foremen. No. Carpenters / Plumbers. Maybe the ones the tattoos and hipster beards and haircuts. Seen a few of them on site lately. We lose our car manufacturer's, and now there trying to sell us cars like this. $80,000+ country hick vehicles. WORLD GONE MAD.... Morning rant. Thanks for listening.

    4 year old from the back seat: "Dad, after this traffic light can you activate the turbo speed?" Moments after the light goes green, in a voice like he was relaxing into a hot bath: "Ahhhhhhh.... That's better"

    For those that may be interested. I just pushed my 12 year old stock BFII XR6 turbo engine with 165,000kms on it to 520 kilowatts at the hubs here in Adelaide. Motor has Atomic head studs and valve springs (801s), Gen2 GTX, 45 hyper gate, Nizpro stage 2 and Nizpro 4 inch exhaust, 460 in tank and surge with pierburg pump (E85). Early testing showed 23 psi at 2700rpm so we had some work to do as we didn't want to pump to much into the mid on a stock engine. Timing and fuel are both safe, did it easy. Unsure where the G2 GTX will go but I think 550 @ the wheels wouldn't be a stretch for this turbo. My setup had more in it, but don't want to break the motor... Just yet! Cars holding up well, good old ZF is loving it. Hope to hit the strip soon and improve on my 11.0 pass.

    Not today. Just a few things over the last couple of weekends but have been too lazy/late for a drinking appointment to post on time. Got my exhaust finished & it's all working micky [emoji108] Will pull it off in a couple weeks to check for any leaks and hit it with some exhaust paint to cover my sh*tty welding [emoji28] Fabricated some fully custom Mudflaps! And installed a 60w 'reversing light' Needless to say I hate both reversing & the dark. Sent from my fancy pansy touchy screeny phoney

    did some work for a cray fisherman he asked me if I liked crayfish I was like - "does a one legged duck swim in a circle?" Lobster lunch fresh garlic, chili flakes and butter, melted in the microwave and poured over the flesh cooked under the grill for about 10 minutes very simple, very delicious

    My local racetrack sells e85 for $1.49/L Wooohoooo!!!!!!!! I was doing a 90 odd km round trip for it before and now I don't have to. It's 10 cents cheaper at United but I'm pretty sure I'll make that up by not driving nearly 100km to get it

    Guides and tensioner. BUT if yours is ok just re-use them. They do get wear grooves. And easy to install while its all apart. I just used this GENUINE kit. You really dont need HD chain. Plenty of big power cars on factory gear. Check the top of the RHS guide. It can snap off. This is one that is intact. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/GENUINE-FORD-4-0-BARRA-TIMING-CHAIN-SET-BA-BF-FG-FGX-FALCON-SX-SY-SZ-TERRITORY/292021574011?hash=item43fdd7997b:g:cvIAAOSw5cNYmRMB

    I just had to help a bloke/workshop in NSW who’s “apparently” got the runs on the board with the fastest GTS bomadore and some wizardry in-ter-chilling Technologys....... ( yes I’ve done that on purpose lol ) who would pick it up in a few hours as he’s a “Gun tuner” well this poor bloke now has an Eboost 2 on his FGX set to one point as his tuner thinks it would take to long to tune the falcon boost tables .... and apparently ID injectors aren’t suited to the falcon and will blow black smoke Yeh it’s not rocket science but it definitely isn’t simple like some think for the record that tuner spent nearly 4 days on that FGX and it’s still terrible as his listening skills go as well as his tuning skills unfortunately

    Gonna make a few changes to the Ute over the next few months. If anyone wants any of the parts below pm me and I'll work out when the parts are coming off the car and $$$. FG manifold, tb elbow with bov & overboost valve, battery tray, 6 boost factory position manifold, gtx3582, nizpro dump, process west surge tank with dual 470s + lines and reg with billet rail. Will be doing the intake side and fuel system first then the turbo side later on.

    I am currently cooling off in front of the ac in the house. It is well worth spending the extra $75 to $100 per month on electricity to have the house at 25 degrees.

    I pulled that 6R80 apart that I bought the other day to see what da heck is wrong with it. The torque converter ate itself then barfed metal chunks so it is throwaway for me. It chucked a good bit of metal into the trans as well but most of it is in the pan and filter. Apart from that the box is in average condition except for at least one bush that is pretty farked. The clutches and steels are in average/good nick still. I put it back together when I was done and I'll do more with it down the track. All in all a pretty good score for $50, a tank of fuel and 8 hours of driving! Here's some pictures cos why not?!

    @NA_TURBO kindly bought this 6R80 off gumtree for me earlier in the week and today I went for a 750km round trip to his place to pick it up. I also picked up some stage 1 Exedy frictions (AA battery for scale) from him while I was there. I'll do something with them one day

    Remember just a couple of months ago a dude on here got his car tuned by a shop with minimal experience with hp tuners and they did 40+ runs on a built motor with sub par results? It's not the lack of tuning experience that is the concern, it's the lack of platform experience. I personally wouldn't let someone tune my car with hp tuners if they've never used it before. Anywayzzzzz.... Happy farken Wednesday?!?!!?!? Phew that made me dizzy
