    No progress on the ute for the last while, until today anyway. Got my license back yesterday. Was lucky enough to be able to get Chris from Mobile Custom Fabrications to come over and sort out new cooler piping. Pretty happy with how it turned out. Left the silicone elbow on the little GTX as I plan on upgrading that later this year, no point wasting a plazmaclamp on it.

    Sick of my ute being in peices, decided cooler pipes are getting done properly this time. Picked up a set of 3" plazmaclamps to go with the turbosmart 50mm BOVs. Getting the new cooler piping fabbed up later this week. Hopefully turns out kinda like this but 3" not 3.5".

    Back into doing what I really enjoy as a hobby and it’s far more exciting than playing soccer ( sorry world cup lol ) but I’ve had Alex’s built BA beast on the Dyno, marks white 500rwkw ute and last night Andrew’s FGX XR8 with the supercharged 5.0 lots going on but ive had to step up Alex’s @pro_xw98‘s boost control system as it’s making already 300rwkw @ 9psi with a progressive peak and seen over 500rwkw already at 21psi progressive with the big precision 7675 and far too much too soon when bringing it on quicker. It was worth a shot at making what he had work before spending more money but wasn’t to be Marks ute hit the rollers for a genral check up and seeing the Circle D converter has “loosened” up a small touch has made the ute increasingly more aggressive which is interesting to say the least haha then onto Andrews FGX with the sweet sweet V8 alloy supercharged goodness wanting ultimately bang for buck a Tune Only was the ticket as he had already fitted a Aeroflow pod replacement hi flow Air filter ( I typically would of used a K&N ). The FGX has a decent amount of further torque reduction and general power subtraction strategies over the FG GT/GS for instance and definitely shows up in the baseline runs 288rwkw was all she had and it’s obvious where in the graph Ford are pulling power out or adding way to much fuel in and being counter productive for generating power. All said and done 359rwkw and that makes a total of 71rwkw on a “tune only” which is bloody amazing really seeing anywhere from 60rwkw to 75rwkw is the ballpark for most workshops and the “tune only” status and most included the Pod filter after the baseline so 71 is really good and I’m very happy with the before and after and didn’t need to spin the engine past factory redline too which most lift by another 500rpm or so on the street it’s chalk and cheese the difference and now it spins the 275 sport Maxx tyres pretty hard with ease whereas it didn’t spin at all with all the torque management left on which is a bit boring for a factory supercharged vehicle stay tooned for more soon

    For me it will do everything I need. Stage my fuel pumps, run my shift light, give me interstate support with tuning abilities so I dont need to relie on Adelaide “tunners/work shops. Provide piece of mind with all the engine protection features, wide band visibility boost ingear and heaps more. It doesn’t matter that it cant be used to tune the ZF, this is technically very difficult to achieve. Its not for everyone but for what I’m trying to do its, on paper at least perfect. Plus Dion Amato swears by it and has used it to tune his 6sec race car. live tuning, the list goes on and on. Looking forward to it!

    New fermenter. Pale ale just went in. Got myself a proper keg setup (fridge, 2 taps, gas, kegs etc) I'm currently putting together. Hopefully it'll all be setup and ready in a week or so when the beer's ready. Was so over the bottling of the brews that I'd not done any for a while - this should be a hell of a lot easier and constant. No more secondary ferment, adding sugars to carbonate etc and no more cleaning bottles. Half hour at each end of the brew instead instead of hours and only a week or so before the beer is on tap instead of a month or longer. The new fermenter will let me brew and dispense under pressure - should let everything be a closed loop from when the yeast is added til when the beer is poured. Beer should be a lot cleaner, clearer and have far less chance of infection or "off" flavours - no more banana beer Have also got a nitrogen bottle and tap coming - proper pub "Guinness" and "Kilkenny" etc will be an awesome option. Have still got the "Beer droid" fermenters - will use them for the "small batch" beers - they do 10l so will go straight from them to a 10l keg to chuck on the taps.

    there's a lot involved... have a read of all of the N/A to Turbo threads in this forum section to get yourself a reasonable idea -> http://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/forum/142-ford-40l-na-discussion/ bottom line; it's not worth it, just sell up and buy a turbo.

    Yeh , nar ..... it needs to be tuned to suit “Before” you hit the key buddy Schweet shot though and a very good chance the tune shop will need to address your pump installation anyway so you’ve probably saved nothing but wasted half your day on the flip side your results are 100% spot on for the installation , that’s a win though ?

    Looks good from a quick glance if you can use the G-Sync and refresh rate Expensive if a 120hz screen would make no difference to you. Cheapest I could find it was $821. https://www.saveonit.com.au/product/aoc-27-ag271qg-agon-nvidia-g-sync-gaming-monitor

    As the full size Ford are no longer made, coz people wants SUVs these days, a piss weak excuse if ever there was one, does this mean cars like our XRs have become instant classics?

    Most definitely don't get the cheap coils. Just search this forum and have a read of the horror stories that happen with cheap ones. The factory ones are not "upgraded", they are just stock and stock is best.

    it's weird, do it a certain way and one dose works lovely. it's the way you hold it when you inhale, shaking it before inhaling, etc the list goes on. I reckon I was getting barely 10% of the medication into my lungs deep where it belongs. I was literally huffing the stuff all day previously and it wasn't working. like I think some doses would hit my inner mouth or throat rather than get huffed down into my lungs.

    Good stuff Typhoon. I think I'll be going also in a few weeks. Did anyone else see the dynomite car on the latest fullboost vid? Looks like it was one of the dev cars, or at very least early adopters. Very keen for some feedback on these! Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk

    Momentarily thought I tore my exhaust open Tuesday jumping a gutter (trying to) Turns out it was the front 2 turbo nuts missing [emoji28] & landing on the exhaust cracked the seal open enough for me to hear it. [emoji106] Just went to do them up now & found a 3rd nut was finger loose [emoji33] good thing I heard it when I did! Saving a photo of this setup so I know how to do them up next time, such a C#%@ of a spot! Sent from my fancy pansy touchy screeny phoney

    heya guys thought id do an update on my build as its going. so I ended up going 6 speed manual. conversion was very very easy. wiring was easy (I have reverse lights) only problem I came across was the centre bearing OD being different. anyways long story short I ended up getting a yellow sticker so in the process of getting this back on the road. vehicle is getting a few changes to comply and be registered and also for extra power after registering. Full spool is coming out and am replacing with a Harrop Truetrac. standard tailshaft will be removed and will be upgrading to a DBS custom tailshaft. 1.00AR rear housing will be getting replaced with a 1.15AR housing(due to rear housing causing restriction on last tune) Brakes are being changed to be more suitable for the power. picking up a set of Brembo 6 Piston front calipers with 355mm front discs and Brembo 4 Piston rear calipers with 330mm discs. once reregistered going to be doing the last tune for this setup. aiming for low 900rwhp at around 30psi. this will be the last tune on this vehicle as injectors only have another 15-20% left. also a few old suspension bushes will be replaced to improve handling. 2002 Ba XR6 Turbo 320rwkw @16psi (old tune) 437rwkw @22psi 1263nm of torque BTR 4 Speed Auto 590rwkw @ 25psi current tune T56 T56 Manual out of BF Xtreme Button twin plate Malwood Short Shifter Malwood Heavy Duty Alloy clutch master cylinder Malwood Braided clutch hose CrowCam Heavy Duty Valve Springs and Retainers Mahle Forged Pistons (20" Oversize) Scat Forged H beam Rods Billet Oil Pump gears ACL Race series bearings MLSR Head Gasket ARP Head Studs Precision 6766 1.00AR (1.15AR coming soon) 6Boost Hightmount Manifold Bosch 1600ccc Injectors Plazmaman 044 Twin Surge Tank Plazmaman Fuel Rail Turbosmart 2000 Fuel Pressure regulator Plazmaman Plenum Custom intercooler piping Turbo Smart 50mm External Wastegate 6Boost High mount manifold Freshly setup head including new valve steam oil seals, valve guides etc Battery relocation to rear Plazmaman 1200hp tube and fin intercooler Plazmaman full intercooler piping Plazmaman cold air intake 52mm Heavy Duty Alloy Radiator Custom Dump pipe Xforce 3.5inch hiflow cat stainless Xforce 3.5inch cat back stainless Walbro intake fuel pump Sct x3 flash tuner Whiteline 30mm adjustable sway bar with adjustable links Whiteline 22mm adjustable sway bar with adjustable links Xzy super sport coilovers Nolathane differential bushes 4.11 Diff Gears Fullspool diff center(removed now Harrop truetrac Protex street slotted and cross drilled front rotors(replaced with Brembo 6 piston front calipers 355mm slotted rotors) Protex street slotted and cross drilled rear rotors(replaced with Brembo 4 piston rear calipers 330mm slotted and x drilled rotors) Trw pads all round(going QFM with new Brembo Setup King wheel evolve 20x8.5 front 20x10 rear 225x35x20 front 275x35x20 rear 20% window tint Dewinged 8000k hid kit Alpine cda137ebt head unit Alpine mrf600 4 channel Alpine mrx m240 monoblock 2 x Rockford Fosgate T2D212 Soundstream 40 FARAD capacitor Sound stream ported box Stinger 0 gauge wiring Rockford fosgate T3169S Rockford fosgate T169

    Update on the Territory. Bought a Plazmaman under battery CAI kit & got a local guy to install a cheap Proflow front-mount Intercooler and do custom pipework. Was looking at full Plazmaman kit but this option was half the cost installed & I’m not going to go too crazy power wise cos don’t really want to get into having to run a built ZF. Got the tune touched up at Torque Performance still only running 12-13lb and put out 333kw so pretty stoked picking up nearly 45kw. Was supposed to be hitting Meremere today to hopefully get well down into the 12s but rained out.
