    Fitted the new 360mm offset rotors. They look huge. I they ended up sitting 10.4 mm further inboard. As you can see there is now ample room to fit the caliper, even with 19" Vertini Drifts. The caliper brackets are currently being modified to suit. Should be finished by Friday.

    Been a busy camper but apologies to anyone who's been waiting on answers or a reply as I dropped @pro_xw98's starter motor onto my Iphone 7 from a tiny ~4* off the bottom of the front sway bar it was cable tied to and obliterated it so a new Iphone 7 has only just hit my hand now ( cheers apple care for that lol ) anywhoo I had Paul bring his beautiful G6ET in for a new port & flapper job with a Genuine Garret 12psi actiator, Hardy Spice HD 1000HP rated Tailshaft including 1250 yoke&uni's and a Plazmaman 4* race intake and battery relocation kit,Plazmaman TB elbow replacement kit then coupled it up with a sweet Ngauge from @Peppy_t92 so Paul can now have high and low boost options as last time the 355rwkw tune was a bit of a tyre fryer even on the low 15psi. The best part is due to Paul being around 200kms away I have the ability to do remote tuning for him final power is lifted to now 364rwkw (high boost ) and a low boost of 325rwkw Then I've been preparing for Taylor and his ute that has decided to start the process of the old "rumble of death" turbo failure so wanting to do something slightly different I've gone a brand new Genuine Garret GT3582 (B series turbo or FG F6 however you want to look at it) with an Antisurge 4* GTX cover in 0.7 configuration. Should net around ~30rwkw more with the cover than what a standard GT3582 with the 0.50 would do but I don't think we will go that far (400rwkw +). Matched it up with my precision Port & Flapper job with a Garret 12 psi actuator and Genuine walbro 255ltr/hr intank fuel pump with new E85 submersible pressure line ( results to come ) Now my major focus has been (believe it or not ) @pro_xw98's engine/trans/diff build and we're very close to hitting the key for the first time and just finalising the last bits n bobs but she's looking good with that 1200+hp turbo hiding away under that CRG low mount manifold that's been ceramic coated with over 1000* in temp black coating and nothing but the best -10 oil drain in braid with speedflow flange fittings ( My OCD is going bananas with the blue AN fitting lol ) and general up spec everything including wrapping the fully built C4 with a SFI trans blanket ! A keen eye will see the attention to detail I've gone to on the engine dress up with all fastners being acid dipped to bring them up clean again along with painting all surfaces

    Jeturbo is known for helping members with parts and tuning and imo is one of the best guys to leave your car with for a "one stop shop". If I tagged him them he would be sure to see this thread. I figured I'd leave some info for you to look at rather than do that. As it turned out he chimed in anyway. Hopefully that clears up any confusion.

    When it works out like that, it is. It doesn't always go to plan however. Firstly you are waiting ages to transfer the game cos hdd to ssd ain't quick, you can lose data and have to download the game again, you can lose saves if it isn't saved on the cloud, and my favourite is when you transfer the game and steam wont install it cos there isn't enough room on the drive cos you just copied the game there. No thanks, gimme a bigger ssd any day of the week. I just wanna sit on my fat ass, click the clicker and play the game. Each to his own though. Me too Rab, me too There is frig all difference between and pcie ssd and a sata ssd when it comes to loading games but a hdd is like a blow up doll. You only use it when you have to.

    I think it was the server side cache (that you didn't have access to) that was causing it. Chris would turn it off and all was good. Randomly got turned on again and started occuring again -til he turned it off. Happened a fair few times - when it broke, we'd poke him, he'd turn it off and all was good til the next time.

    I'm looking for someone that wants to be part of one of the best Ford performance shops in Sydney IMO. I have 35 years of mechanical knowledge to teach & I'm still learning, so I don't consider myself as being the best as there's always someone better ! I've working with mechanics that are fully qualified but I wouldn't pay them to push a broom.... & I've seen some brilliant unlicensed mechanics that think out side of the box if you have the skill the paper work can come later, I'm after quality, honesty & dedication to the brand cheers joe

    yeah they have balls of steel as far as the season goes, unless Dovi or Marquez have a couple of DNF's and Rossi takes the next 5 wins, he wont win the title edit: Maria Harera broke her collar bone 12 days ago and she is running in FP1 right now!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So Abit of sad news, Only did two 11.5s tonight. Just keep blazing the tyres. 124mph trap speed. And theres a rattling noise coming from the turbo area only under part load. No noise at wot or idle. Maybe its time to justify a procharge 69mm wheel

    What worked for me for individual sessions was just by making them part of the daily routine rather than an action that was approached fresh each day. Work-Gym-Swim-Groceries-Dinner By doing that without fail there was never a choice/decision to be made, no motivation needed.
  32. 1 point
    I look at it as doing what you want and not what you feel eg: I want to stop smoking/drinking/boning hookers but I feel like a cigar/bourbon/shag. For the purpose of definition, "what you want" is a decision you make based upon a goal that doesn't change from day to day and "what you feel" is constantly changing based upon your sensory input and how you process that mentally and physically. I want a certain body type and strength level so I gotta lift weights regardless of how I feel unless I'm injured. I think this is why it is important to create a program and stick with it for the requisite months that it will run for. I feel better going into my shed to do weights when the weather is mild, I'm not sick and when I'm not tired etc. Some days are better than others and some days I want to just stay inside and chill out. I currently use a program with a slight leeway in the amount of reps done so I can just do 2 less reps per set if my energy level is down or the weight is a bit too heavy. This helps me with the day to day differences. I'm usually just glad it's over, though it is good to see noticeable progress afterwards. I go because I want a certain result and if I don't go I wont achieve that result. It's more of a means to an end for me.

    Waiting for the upgrade ends up being a vicious circle lol I've got about 5TB of games on my secondary drive and usually just play of that and don't really notice a huge inconvenience.. If there's any that I need the faster load times or am hitting pretty hard I just cut/paste from the HDD to the main one and "reinstall" - it's all pretty painless. My "sim" machine is just running a single 512gb SSD, holds most of the things I want (racing and VR titles) and is easy enough to copy stuff over the network if I need something else. Same with the lappy - although that's got a 1TB ssd for storage as well as the 512 NVME. Decent rundown below:

    there are 2 versions of the watercooled TI. waterforce and waterforce WB. WB just has the waterblocks attached so you can custom water loop https://www.pccasegear.com/products/39675/gigabyte-aorus-geforce-gtx-1080-ti-waterforce-wb-xtreme-edition

    Good to see Personally, I'd go a z299 board with a CPU that takes advantage of the chipset. Am running 2 gpu cards x16 pcie, (instead of x16,x8 or x8, x8) 2 nvme drives and some other sata drives on my z170 board and it's playing mix and match as to which SATA ports work and which ones don't (due to PCIE lane limitations) - normal z170, z270 (or z299 boards with the 7740) have even less pcie lanes to play with than I do (it's an odd board with an extra PCIE controller or something). If you're going 2 GPUs , the nvme and want to do some content stuff (more HDD's or SSD's) then you may wish you had the legroom. I'd probably also get aircooled GPU's and chuck waterblocks on them rather than the OEM watercooled solutions if going 2 cards. A single, decent radiator is easier to fit and cool than the 2 "smaller", chunky, ulgy ones that come with the cards (I think they'd be AIO's rather than something you can alter??) and can be part of the rest of your cooling setup - especially if going water for the rest of the setup. EKWB have a great config on their webpage where you put in your setup and it puts together a parts list. (buy/order in stages to avoid the $1k Aus trigger on orders before duty/gst etc if you purchase from them - I think PCCasegear?? stock a lot of the items) There are a few cases out there now that work with the Gigabyte AORUS RGB and others that work with whatever MSI's or ASUS's version is (cant remember which) - I usually stick with Gigabyte (even if not the smart choice - other brands have let me down real bad at different stages through the years - GB haven't yet)

    no, it was before these changes. No changes were made when it "mysteriously appeared again". so please take your (lack of) information elsewhere also, yes, I did nothing for a few months because I was busy with my actual work - by the time that I was not stupidly busy again, then it was too late... no more access to do anything :(

    Yep the Plazmaman 800HP kit fits brilliantly with no cutting and is a top medium/upper level intercooler kit with a lower end price tag happy to help out forum members with some good prices on anything intercooler related !

    800 hp Tube and Fin kit by Plazmaman fitted like a glove in my BA. Zero cutting needed. Jet can vouch for this. Should be the same for your BF. And as puff said, part with the coin now and you won't be parting with extra coin down the track when the pump isn't up to task so on and so forth. Good luck Andy and welcome.
