  1. Had the pleasure of turning Taylors FG turbo ute from stock to a 300rwkw beast using limited but quality parts and utilising the factory hardware the best I can, the build list is only Plazmaman bolt in 700hp cooler kit Plazmaman's intake muffler delete kit ID1000's Airbox mod Venom bolt in cat section major engine service Major cooling system service full custom tune with progressive boost ramp as per request... done the closest possible to a stock vs modded overlay as all of the hardware was all fitted upon the baseline run so there's a few extra rwkw's there and a leaner than stock fuel map but you get the gist I did manage 304rwkw and a bunch more Torques but it needed a few extra psi I just felt it didn't need and the justification wasn't there imho but what would I know hey so I pulled it back to 300 on the dot !

  3. All stipulated as a special condition in the contract that approval will be sought and provided for patio prior to settlement. Contracts all agreed upon and signed by both parties [emoji4]

  4. Last night my daughter leaves her place to drive a friend home......on their way up the street they see that some idiot has overturned about a dozen wheely bins and there's rubbish everywhere...... They drive on, talking about the senseless act of littering done for no reason..... Around the corner they see the police talking to a pair of teenagers on the footpath, don't think much of it until she returns 20 mins later..... The police car is parked off to the side, flashers and headlights on....... The cops are sitting on the bonnet, coffee in hand.....watching the same two teens walking down the road picking up all the rubbish and putting it back into the bins! Now there's a bit of karma right there....

  8. Cheers fellas. Agreed on a price with the owner, subject to finance and inspections etc. Start going through all the paperwork with a settlement agent today hopefully, good times. Finance won't be a problem, bank have already said so...so that's cool. Got a nice surprise also, turns out my Nonna had left me a few grand for my folks to give to me when I bought my own place. Works out to cost me $400 a month less dead money to own it than it is to currently rent it, in that the interest portion of the mortgage payments is $400 less a month than what I'm currently paying in rent. So I'd chalk that up to a win [emoji4]

  10. Then your turbo will sh*t itself and you'll buy a bigger one cos who doesn't like a big one?! Before you know it, cheap as possible becomes 15 to 20k over 2 years. Much, much more if you pay someone to do it. The golden years will be skids galore and smoke for the masses. Soon enough you'll drive like a grandma as your household budget grows weary of having fuel and tyres as a priority. By the time you realize it's too late your wife will have left you and your kids won't recognise your face cos you went for milk and cigarettes and came back with oil and octane booster some ten years later. Your cat/dog/chicken will be your sole companion in life and eventually they will leave you/die too cos you forget to feed it. You need moar powah!!! Parts break, hearts ache, things will twist and for discounts you'll wrist. 80 years come to pass and as your soul flees this physical realm...you hear one last call to arms...choo choo ch ch ch ch ch ch psshhhhh. For this poetic embrace, I only have one por favor, fix your car but only once but when arrived nevermore. Jks, do what you like

  11. Nothing wrong with bargaining. For example: get a quote for removal and rebuilding a suitable patio. Take that figure to the vendor and ask him if he would rather take that from the sale price or pay for it himself to sell it in the future. Alternatively send back an offer that is subject to council approval for the patio. Imo if removing the patio is going to remove a valuable space in the property and it will cost money to do that then the property is worth less than previously thought. My figures were arbitrary but may not be far off.

  13. Yep. Not much point having a slightly decent turbo without supporting mods. Here's a picture of most of it. There's just a few clamps and hoses not shown. I'll chuck it in tomorrow and see how it goes.

  14. So to further recap Stripes (who is now either Singaporean/Taiwanese), has bought a Methlab that is contaminated with toxic chemicals from a factory fire/explosion that occurred in 2014 in a suburb 17kms away? Ezy2Confuze, have you considered having yourself swabbed for meth residue?

  15. Along these lines, don't know if I mentioned it on here yet or not, but I applied for uni the other day. Looking to do a Masters of Computer Science part-time fully online over the next 4 years while I continue to work full-time. I've begun to realise I'm happiest at work when I'm designing and creating advanced spreadsheets and writing formulas and code. I like the creativity and problem solving elements to that kind of work, it's what gives me the most satisfaction at work. Plus I realise that I really don't want to do FIFO forever, so need a way out that can still earn alright money working from the city. I figure computing will be a more stable industry than mining in the future, so why not?!

  20. Seller called and said he's willing to get approval done, so we're meeting up soon to do up and sign a contract that states this is required prior to settlement. Will report back later.

  21. Everything else with building and pest inspection went well, other than smoke alarms will need replacing prior to settlement. I just replied to the sellers email saying that having reviewed his amendments to the contract, I'm not comfortable signing the changes relating to the patio and that I request the patio to be retrospectively approved prior to settlement. So now we just wait and see. He'll either come to the party, or I won't be buying the house. I decided I don't want to take on the potential hassle of needing to deal with it. He either sorts it, or I walk.

  22. WORK!! another fark up by management. I put in annual leave 8 months ago. Next months roster comes out NO leave,............WTF!! I leave them a note last week, I have leave from the Feb 3rd to 8th Feb. I get to work last night and a note is left on my time sheet, no leave form and have no record of me putting in leave............WTF! I'm sooooo pissed off, not happy camper. Then just before knocking off I went through my phone and found I took photos of my annual leave form..........Up yours! So glade I take photos of everything.

  23. Yeah, that's pretty much what I'm planning on doing. The company that are doing the building inspection tomorrow actually do retrospective approvals, hence I'll ask the dude about it tomorrow. But basically I'm planning on going back to the owner and saying I'm not signing his condition unless he wants to drop $20-30k off the price, otherwise I'll be putting in the condition that it needs to be approved prior to settlement. If he doesn't agree to it then I'll walk away.

  24. Well I was keeping it a secret but here you go. K&N are an Engineering company in Riverside California who are the world's leading manufacturer of washable performance air filters and air intake systems. Yeah, it's going to be a pretty big deal...

  28. Will have to a be long motor if the knock is in the vavle train or cams etc etc. I would have thought the turbo may have taken in a bit of the milkshake mix considering is uses oil taken from the sump. This is a horror story for ya buddy. Just got the car of yours dreams and paint started coming off, now this. Everybody feels for ya mate. Hope it all works out eventually.

  33. Nice one on the house stripes! Much better feeling owning a house Get ready for the bill shock - council rates, water rates, building insurance, few of the things you don't have to worry about when renting Just got the split systems installed at home, Mitsubishi electrics 8kw in the main living area 3.5kw in the bedroom Both outdoor units weren't back to back so had to pay a bit more for installation, but much better having them in the useless part of my yard, eventually I'll screen it off to hide them Also paid for the Wi-Fi upgrade so I can be full blown lazy and turn the a/c on before we get home on a hot day Sent from my HTC_0P6B6 using Tapatalk

  35. Honestly dude, all I'd do is paint that odd salmon coloured wall and bench and get on with life. Kitchen and Bathrooms both look pretty tidy and function so unless they are falling apart I'd run with it to save the $'s in the short term.

  39. Yes E content fuels provide a greater power generation capacity as the E content is a slower burning alcohol so the burn cycle can be started earlier ( advance the timing ) even when octane points are identical 95 vs E10 95 E10 95 is very on par with 98 gasoline power output wise

  41. Sounds dodgy mate. The current owner must have his "patio" council approved before selling. It's like like pools they must meet code and council approved before selling. This goes for anything added to the house. Like some have said take heaps off the asking price........HEAPS!! or they have to get the house council approved. Good luck mate keep us posted.

  42. Not everyone gets our humour. But I say fook them... I have finished the premixes time to bring out the E85 (12 year old Canadian Club ) Had a bit of a rough week so it's time to turn up the boost a tad. Tunes cranking and the drinks are going down quite nicely. Definitely no complaints...

  43. disconnect the battery and leave it off for a while (overnight). charge the battery up while it's off... also check all fuses and relays inside the engine bay and inside the car to make sure they're all OK. re-connect and try starting the car. If it doesn't clear the "security code" on the ICC, try an auto-elec.

  44. I've also had the problem where I wanted to burn my car or write it off. Fortunately neither has occurred lately. There are some knowledgeable people that will read this thread. Spend the time searching threads and asking nicely and I'm sure you will find an answer.

  45. My boys have got a sony tablet each to play games on. They get to use them for two hours per day while their sister sleeps. After that they go away. Any grumbling results in not having it the next day and now they just hand them over without asking as soon as she wakes up. Edit: wpmo; my phone battery seems to be dying. It feels like it is going flat quicker than usual.
