  3. Just a quick heads up for ya mate, Jet is one of the most knowledgeable lads on here and has tuned a shed load of barra turbos with many happy customers. His advice is gold. And never take offence, we all love a few good giggles around here. It's all in the spirit of having a laugh.

  12. As mentioned, I put it into another Dell laptop and would not boot. I plugged it into my gaming machine and did not make any changes to the boot sequence. Windows 10 booted as normal and my login showed up. Logged in and checked windows explorer and to my surprise, the damn thing was listed as the F drive. I grabbed all the Data I needed and boooooooooooooooooooooooooooobs your uncle, I was a happy man. This has been ordered... image snapshots has caught my attention. https://www.qnap.com/en-au/product/model.php?II=214

  13. Hi Everybody. Today I sold my FG XR6 Turbo and it is a sad day but I have enjoyed every single bit of it. Tonight I took it for its last drive to buy a Pie and some bread becaus ei did not have bread in the house and it was such a awesome drive to the Servo and back tonight, the torque it had on the cold weather was just intoxicating. I have absolutely no idea how I began to like the XR6Ts I can vaguely remember many years ago somebody saying he was driving one as a mechanic and he floored it and it just went sideways even at such low speed. It was never a car I even liked. Whenever I buy a car I like to find a Forum or Club, and I did this when I bought my car the exact same day I logged on and there was a cruise that exact night. I rocked up not knowing what to expect, I thought it was going to be a big meet with people talking trash showing off there pursuit rims but it was totally the opposite The atmopshere was great there was skids but the cruises were the safest I've ever been on and also the best organized of any other forum or club. People actually enjoyed cruising, it was purposeful, it was fun. goodbye and I love you guyus

  16. Ok guys - starting to get the ball rolling. Puff has offered to do some thinking and planning for his local areas which will be greatly appreciated and has suggested Belair National Park Caravan Park for the Friday/Sat nights. Location looks perfect for what we're after, but the booking links are broken, so I have no idea of prices - will give them a call later this week once numbers are firmer. If anyone wants to look at sharing a room/cabin to halve accommodation costs then have a chat amongst yourselves. I'll have either my son with me or a mate and I snore like a chainsaw so won't be looking to top/tail with anyone. If the park works out then I'd probably be suggesting we do a BBQ there for Friday nights dinner (casual meet and greet etc) then hit the hills Saturday morning. Would meet at a nearby cafe if we're to catch up with other members who've organised other accommodation or are joining us at different times etc. Lobethal Brewery for lunch (great lunch food when I was over last) then more hills and a visit to the National Motor Museum and other points of interest before heading to the Mexican for dinner. Sunday morning we'll be headed to Robe and the Limestone Coast drive (again - any local knowledge to break up the driving would be awesome). Lunch along the way (am tipping there'll be some decent fishermans baskets on offer somewhere). Hoping to get to Warrnambool for the Sunday night before we hit the Great Ocean Road for the Victorian leg of the trip. @EvilDaifu, @Box stock T., @Puffwagon, @k31th, @MBAF, @BAXRTUTE, @MattyP have shown interest/said they are/maybe coming - are you guys able to confirm or cancel so we can get a firmer number of attendees to start booking/planning and also indicate if you're planning on different routes/accommodation/times for any of the legs. The Friday night will be main one to get us all together - all other details can be worked around once we've all met up. Please hit up any other members who needs to pull their fingers out and jump on the cruise. Feel free to add places you'd recommend us visiting or stopping at, but all actual routes/time are to be kept off the forum (PM's etc are fine)

  22. You know what's pissing me off right now? The missus puts the bloody toilet roll on the wrong way. Seriously! I can't even wipe my arse in peace!

  23. That is the hardest bit, getting them to get the first one done. patience and persistence is all I can say. Best I can say is to do it over a weekend. No yelling at them either. take their nappy off for the whole weekend. Only put underpants on them. Take them to the toilet every 30 mins and leave them on there for 5 mins and no more. Every so often you show them how it is done. that is the best that I can advise. Everyone does it differently. I hve heard of parents bribing them with chocalate or sweets, what ever their favourite is.

  30. Just got an external bluetooth GPS receiver for the trackdays etc http://gps.dualav.com/explore-by-product/xgps160/ Links in directly with Harry's Track Timer (which in turn links with the GoPro's and the OBDII) This one will poll the GPS at 10hz instead of the 1hz so should be far more accurate than the stock phone one (phone was actually polling every 1.5sec - this one will do it 10 times a second) Will be interesting using the TomTom on the phone too - hopefully no more "ooooh - you meant turn at that corner I just passed" All I need to do now is learn how to drive :S

  34. Had the Turbo Taxi returned Yesterday @ Profile and the end result was 415Killerwasps at the rear wheels so am happy with the final result using a Chinese turbo and some ebay bits doing most of it DIY. This is using Eflex which has been pretty constant @ 77% Ethanol over the last few months I am happy with how it drives and performed. I swapped the Actuator spring to 8PSI one from 12PSI this helped keep the boost creep in check and now it is holding at approx 21PSI but has made it a little laggier with the boost coming on a tad slower vs the 12psi spring. I actually prefer how this feels/drives personally as I can drive around off boost mostly not having to give up my first born to pay for the fuel bills and giving it some stick when the moment arises still. Unlike some others I don't mind posting what it cost me so here is the final list of mods/prices is ( all is delivered costs with what it cost me at the time) : Mamba 3582 Turbo ($1000 - Ebay ) 2nd hand Devils Own Water injection kit ($250 - ebay ) AutoTechnia Intercooler and piping ( Ebay $520 ) New Drop-in 3.9BAr Fuel regulator-- KPM Motorsports $180 Walbro 460 in tank pump -- Intune motorsport $239 SCT x4 -- Chiptorq $900 Raceworks / Bosh 1000cc Injectors -- $500 -- ebay Muffler delete kit -- intune motorsports -- $99 K&N Pod Filter -- Super cheap auto $40 Home made head shield for POD Filter in factory airbox location -- $20 Throttle Body replacement pipe -- intune motorsport -- $115 100 cell MEtail 4" Cat -- Ebay -- $100 4" Turbo Down Pipe $340 Custom Exhaust work ( delete middle muffler and fit above parts ) $360 from local exhaust shop Atomic Valve Springs -- $950 -- supplied + fit Profile Custom Dyno Tune on Eflex -- Profile $850 Re Tune from Profile -- $150 Not a performance mod for power but Whiteline Front + Rear sway bars --$480 -- ebay Well that's it for engine performance mods now to give it a 2 tone paint job and fix/paint the interior Here is a current pic before I get to modding. I am also going to change the springs / shocks + do a full bush kit using super pro bushes for the whole car in the near future as the read diff bush is starting to go.  Here are some Glory shots:

  37. hey guys , yep did get to the end of this after buying a new ecu and eveyrthing haha turned out to be a slight intake manifold leak on no1 underneath gasket , the factory ecu is quite smart and it sees the leak and compensates by dropping no6 to balance the engine , replaced the intake manifold gasket and its been good as new haha

  38. Now...do a burnout ...to warm up the tyres on the drag strip and see what you can get out of that baby (don't envy you having the manual if you do take it down to the strip!)

  39. He was the same when trying to get him to stay in his own bed all night. He wasn't even 3 yet and I said to him one day that him waking up and then waking up mum and dad was making us very tired and it was going to be worse when the baby arrived. "okay Dad" Has slept through since. Normal child rearing tactics do not work on this child.

  40. Cheers fellas. She may have gotten upset when I tried to explain what I thought he's probably contesting...she took that as me saying I thought it was her fault. I said I wasn't sure, given she was pulling across into a lane (wasn't until after this that she explained she was already fully into the right lane prior to him hitting her). So yeah, fun times... Insurance is dealing with it all, so hopefully they deem it as cut and dry in her favour...

  50. 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.
