  2. OK. Better report in. This little Mexican decided to infiltrate a day early under the cover of darkness. Snuck past the checkpoint (quarantine) without any issues and am currently holed up a couple of hundred k's behind enemy lines in Murray Bridge. Will be continuing the push forward in the morning, hoping to setup base camp in the hills overlooking Adelaide before lunch and will be awaiting reinforcements and local sympathisers to arrive with further supplies and to strengthen our numbers later in the day. I highly recommend the afternoon/evening tomorrow is spent pouring over the local intel along with a heavy session of R & R before the full frontal assault begins the next morning. Rab signing off for the night. May the turbo gods be on our side.

  9. Yeah - she suggested to me that they officially don't, but would consider tasking a look at the conditions when we get there. I doubt it too now - the weather looks far too nice for us.

  10. I did speak with the Belair lady and she thought it unlikely since they are in the National Park. But yep - she confirmed the BBQ would be okay.

  11. You too Gary - will be far more relaxed now knowing I'm not on a schedule to make it to the camp on time and that I'll be able to deal with "work stuff" tomorrow in case something crops up. Hard part will be holding off the beers until the rest of the crew turn up

  13. Baby's teething, I've slept 45 mins in two days, feeling sorry for myself..... so I dumped the kids at mums for an hour to go get a massage. Thinking how tiring and hard it is ATM I'm in my own little bubble walking into the shops and a man comes up with a soft voice and asks me if I'd swap a couple coins (a 10c and a 5c) for a cup of coffee or a sandwich. I say no sorry I'm busy, and keep walking. Literally I stop dead in the middle of the road and turn around and walked back. I gestured the man over, I asked where he was living at the moment, he said on the street. I asked if he did drugs, he replied no, I actually believed him. (I'm somewhat familiar with the demeanour of addicts, but really I just hoped he wasn't) He didn't smell of alcohol or anything, he just looked like he hadn't eaten in ages. So I told him to come with me, I asked him to wait outside the shop door and I went to the ATM, drew out $20, gave it to him and told him to please get something to eat for the next two days. The look of astonishment was all over his face. Then I walked into the massage place almost in dis belief of what I'd done myself. Then I started to cry. It dawned on me more than ever today. I don't consider myself a bad person, I don't think I'm any more selfish than the next person, but then again maybe that's still too selfish. Here I am with my Michael Kors bag, oroton sunnies, $100 ripped jeans and about to get a massage because I'm so tired and sore from a few days of no sleep thinking of throwing my kids off the bridge coz they're driving me nuts.... and this man just wants something to eat and a shower. I don't feel sorry for having nice things because I work hard for them, but I also don't nearly consider how others are doing unless it's happening to someone I know. In hind sight I wish u had of sat down and had a coffee with him. Perhaps the interaction would have done better than the $20 and ensured that he ate something, I don't know. But either way I feel both so humbled but like such a sh*t Karnt. Every day we just live in our bubbles and don't even notice others and their problems. Yes I know they exist, doesn't mean I do anything about it or I even take more than 30 seconds to register it. No it's not coz I'm intentionally selfish or because I don't care as such, I just chose to be ignorant tbh. I'm pissed at myself for not appreciating what I have every second of every day. I have the two most precious things on this planet and I take them for granted because they drive me up the wall. I know that this is probably normal of most parents and I know most of us get wrapped up in our own lives at some point and I'm the first person to say I hate it when people can't see outside their own box. It just really hit me today that I am so lucky to have the people I have in my life and also the ability to buy what I want (within reason), stock my pantry with food, drive a nice new car and come home to 4 sturdy walls and sleep comfortable in my bed. I donate to charity, I put in boxes and buy raffle tickets and all that jazz but I don't really know or see where the money goes as such. No matter how much good I did for that man today but helping him hopefully have a meal, he did way more for me!!! I cried the whole drive home and I've never hugged my boys so tight when I got back I can tell you that! *damn hormones I'm dyslexic and cannot turn off simple functions in tapatalk

  20. About to start packing so I can leave as early this arvo as I can. Am going to spend the next 24 hours wondering what I forgot to bring. edit: good news - can get into the cabin from midday (not the 2pm check-in) so should be all sorted to deal with clients tomorrow. Will mean it's only the 1 day (monday) I'm tied up. Will try and sweet talk them into allowing us to use a firepit at night.

  23. Hi to all on the forum Im Mark obviously aka Boosted Blu the proud owner of the White MK2 ute you see on the previous page of this thread that JETURBO has modded and tuned for me. My journey started just before Xmas last year when I purchased the ute. Im a forum lurker rather than a contributor and used the wealth of knowledge on here to research and work out what I wanted to do to my ute. So after reading the majority of this thread I contacted Aaron and over the course of roughly 2 weeks of numerous texts and the occasional phone call, we decided on what you see in this thread. I think you would agree the results speak for themselves and highly of Aaron's ability with this platform! Now I picked up the ute Friday night and drove it home during peak hour (yeh I know its only Adelaide) so I wasn't able to put it through its paces. So Saturday couldn't come round fast enough and after putting 200+ kms on it this is what I texted to Aaron that afternoon. Wow Wow oh my god My ute is nothing short of bloody amazing Cruising is so effortless and comfortable but when you start really driving it its just so exhilarating Power delivery is awesome and I now totally understand why the boost is held back a fair bit until it gets going To see the tacho and speedo climb so rapidly is crazy I left traction control on and the light kept flickering on and off Im too scared to turn it off with only those 245 tires on it (not into burnouts, prefer the power to the ground) To say you have exceeded my expectations is an understatement Kudos to you Absolutely outstanding mate Now I have no hesitation in recommending JETURBO to anyone who wants some work done on their car and as a matter of fact if you use anyone else you do so at your own peril, guys like Aaron dont come around too often. Hey Aaron you hit the nail on the head with my build and gave me more than I expected It was a pleasure doing business with you and I will continue to do so You the (Ford Platform) Man Cheers Buddy

  25. So results are in and the long build is finished on one beautiful white ute The process started nearly three weeks ago when I put the once standard FG mk2 Turbo through it's paces on the dyno to gain a nice baseline figure and a chance to check all was well before the modifications took hold and we came in at 226rwkw which is all very typical for a ZF equipped ute. Powering on and a myriad of performances upgrades took place of standard parts and no two builds are ever really identical so it's always nice to see what will be at the end Long story short I've taken @Boosted Blu's to the 400 club with what's almost a stock looking engine bay ( a requirement ) and the figures are 379rwkw on 98 fuel and 437rwkw on E85 Settled in at 16.5 psi flat on 98 and 21.5psi initial hit on E85 trailing to 19psi uptop The Dyno sheets tell the whole story of exactly where the small FG turbo shines over a bigger frame G2 GTX3582 but all said and done the G2 didn't give it to much before it pushes that little turbo to the gutter. Something to be mindful of was the fact I kept the stall time against the roller to a minimum as the ute still retains the stock standard tailshaft so blowing that out wasn't high on my priority list so with a built unit I believe the gap would be even smaller against the stock turbo excuse the lack of printouts as the printer literally died so a new one was in the middle of being installed Then this happened..... and we're here .... the difference between 98 and E85 then the final before and after

  26. Okay, another night, another literal piss-take. I honestly hate my review now. It's sloppy, erroneous, and pandering. I said I should've checked it three times; what I really meant was the famously misquoted but-still-relevant "write drunk, edit sober." F*ck, what a mess. lrn2write, me.
