  1. I had quad tips on my BA when I brought, disgusting things, was one of the first things I wanted to change. I went to a 4inch dump and exhaust with a big single 4" tip, mine was custom and not cheap, most was labour for the dump and screamer pipe. Attached some pics

  2. What a busy few days again but what an excellent wrap up for George @fun001 and his build with me and the big trip involved all the way from NSW to SA and back again ! The car has made it's way out to the Drag strip to put the finishing touch on the journey that was and nothing more satisfying than punching out what the Dyno sheet shows it can do ! Casting our minds back a few weeks I took the car from stock (240 odd rwkw to a reasonably modified 390rwkw (best of) ) and today George managed to pedal it to a best of 11.25 and a best of 128.78mph with what's considered a lazy 1.99 60ft. Car was set for racing how I suggested George went about it regarding Tyres,fuel levels,Air pressure,burnout method and shift points and all day it went deep into the 11's so consistently representing JD TUNING in the east absolutely stoked with the time and MPH and most of us know that for every 10th in the 60 equates to 2/10th in the deep end so one rock solid 1.75 60ft and there's a 10.99 in her and both very achievable targets. All said and done I believe the car has produced what it should for a genuine result and even though a larger portion of safety aspects were left in the tune due to this unique situation of George being so far away it's gone great heres some pictures from today ...

  3. I wanted to share my experience with everybody after jet has put his hands on my car for the second time. I haven't had a chance to drive it much since I got it back from him because my car is a weekender and the weather's just been sh*te lately but I managed to give it a decent run last night. It's an fg 2 XR6 t manual box stock when I bought it. 1st time I saw Aaron he gave it a full service with a set of injectors in got her up to 290 rwkw I was really happy with that tune it was sitting around 800nm and for a manual made it such a drivable car. 2nd time around we did Plasmaman 800 HP cooler alloy pipes plazmaman turbo side intake. intank fuel pump and now tuned to 319 kW 14.5 psi sitting around 930 NM and wow. Before this second set of mods and tune to have a bit of fun I'd change between 3 to 4000 p.m. now I don't even need to go that high. 2000 to 3000 rpm is where the fun is at with the sound of the turbo spooling up between 2 and 3000 rpm and the flutter on shift sounds are incredible. The torque is instantly there. Last night I ran through the gears changing it 5000 RPM second third then forth and the car is the missile! The rest of my setup is DBA T3 with pmu pads as Aaron suggested and she pulls up beautifully and super smooth. she sits on King's all round with kyb gas shocks, whiteline rear swaybar, 20 inch Simmons and the car performance and handles so well I'm just so happy now and thank you so much for your time, effort and attention to detail Aaron[emoji16] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

  4. My 04' BA ute used to be the pride of chiptorque on the gold coast, and has been around for a long time by 4 different owners. I managed to track down the owners and get an idea of the history. I bought the car making 743rwhp (554rwkw) on E85, and 606rwhp (452rwkw) on pump98, but was in very sad shape. Maintenance had been neglected, needed ball joints, tyres, rackends, oil leak repairs, misfiring badly, sh*t matt black territory rims, 2 layers of tint darker than 5%, etc etc The car was running a Direct Clutch twin plate button, great clutch, but was taking its toll on me around town (car accident injuries).. After replacing the concentric slave, and master cylinder twice I had enough, and converted it to auto. After the conversion, took it out to Willowbank Raceway and promptly melted number 5 piston, which is found out through the previous owners, this is the 3rd time (still ran 11.3 on low boost, on 5 cylinders, backing off just after half track). Time for another rebuild. Going through the older dyno sheets, I found that the AFR's were as lean as 13.6:1 with thanks to 80lb injectors maxed out.

  5. Marulan is great for a first timer because the speeds are low and it's less intimidating. I may be there August 20th too. The G6 will be quick as long as the brakes are good. I recorded this video over 8 years ago now when the car was close to stock. Damn I've been doing this too long in this car. http://www.mdtc.com.au/ The track has since been extended though with a banked turn coming onto straight. Longer version here. My last day there 2 years ago was really frustrating (as you can hear from my reaction) as the car wouldn't shift into 2nd after the main straight resulting in no lap times being set. Motivating me to try again next month!

  6. So my G6E just clocked 100,000kms and I got fed up with the drivers seat bolster being all crushed and mangled when sitting on it. The leather in that area was worn, still in ok condition but the foam underneath was just weak. Passenger side was immaculate so I thought...Time to swap! The backrest of the seat is not swappable due to the side airbag being on the respective side. However the bottom seat foam and leather are identical pieces left to right. Sorry for not taking photos of the process. Was my intention to do so but I got carried away. Start of by removing both seats. - Remove all the plastic trim to expose the 4 seat bolts - Using a T50 torx bit unbolt both seats - Carefully tilt the seat back and unplug the various electrical connectors - Now lift the seats out of the car into an area where you can easily work on them Now we need to get the bottom foam piece swapped - Finish removing the remainder of plastic trim from the seats - There are 2 bolts on each side holding the backrest to the bottom of the seat - Undo these and lay the seat base next to the backrest. - There are a few wires running between these two pieces for the airbag. I just left them connected - Next starting at the back of the seat unclip the leather from the seat base. - It's held on with long plastic sleeves that hook over the metal edge of the seat base - Once its all unhooked....CAREFULLY....lift the leather away from the seat base - There are strong velcro strips in each recess of the seat foam that keep the leather taught - Make sure you dont pull the velcro off with the leather! - Now that the leather is removed you should be able to see the foam. It just lifts off the seat base - The passenger side will have a sensor glued to the foam (passenger occupancy sensor) which is part of the airbag system - Carefully remove this (I used a knife and slowly cut it away) and glue it to the other foam piece with upholestry glue At this point I went to town cleaning the leather, the seat rails and the interior of the car underneath the seats. - Now just reassemble everything and your done! Took me about 4 hours Few snaps During the mess Passenger side finished. You can see the worn leather and compressed foam Drivers side looking brand new!

  7. finally sorting out the home network, work in progress - no where near finished. I'm teaching my apprentice how to cable so hes doing all the work. before I just had surface mount outlets and wall plates with no rack or enclosure. I gotta say, the tp link POE switch has been perfectly reliable in the roof, I hope the camera NVR is happy up there too. The plan is to have it so someone could rip out all the infrastructure down below, turn the power off and still have cameras recording/uploading to internet. Also it'll be cool still having wi-fi when the power goes out. I'll upload a pic when it's done, it's gonna look like cable porn so hopefully I don't get banned for posting it.

  16. Just a heads up for anyone running a skylake/kabylake processor - check if there's a new bios update for your motherboard in the last few weeks. There's been a hyperthreading bug discovered recently with new bios's being released to correct it. Applied a new bios this morning and seem to be able to run the CPU higher and cooler than before (auto tuning was giving me 4400 @ high 50's - new bios it's giving me 4500 @ low 50's)

  19. Cheers Trent Had a bit on lately and I'm enjoying tuning the N/A V8 range alot, it's even a bit weird how much I like them and the gains are tiny in comparison to a turbo falcon where I can drag 30-40rwkw's out of the car with a tune only but having to work for each and every KW is nice for some reason haha anyway I tuned a BA Fairmont today with the 3V v8 donkey engine and it had a set of advanced Tri Y's, hi flow cats and a single 3* cat back system a F6 Typhoon lower air intake on the factory airbox and some fresh 98 fuel with the BTR hanging in there at over 200,000kms on the clock Pumped out a stout 203rwkw before (lol) and after a full custom tune ended at 219rwkw with a sizeable gain from start to finish and the 3V just wanted a bit of fuel in her where the Boss 4V takes well to a lean off of target fuel to pick up KW's,Dialled in the timing with the new "Link G" knock module and noise cancelling headphones All said n done happy days I think

  23. Hey Jet Thanks for posting all the details for today's outing at Eastern Creek. It was a great day and I am over the moon with the results (except for the 60ft time) Undoubtedly, you have helped me achieve all the goals I was looking for, which was a reliable, quiet, low 11sec sleeper. Many were impressed with the mph. I was also glad that I drove to and from the track without any issues which reflects the reliability aspect. To think it is a 98 tune as well is impressive and many of the spectators/competitors reacted positively with the times achieved Today's results is the icing on the cake. Once again Jet, thanks for your efforts Regards from George

  25. Update on this. When I went to work on it the next day I found a puddle of oil under it jacked it up and found the Turbo had tried to unbolt itself from not only the exhaust manifold but the core of the turbo itself. Even after tightening it all up it's pouring oil out when running so it's most likely destroyed the oil seal on the exhaust side. So chances are the white smoke is from the turbo and the rough idle and occasional misfiring is because the O2 sensor is getting coated in oil by the turbo seeing as it's directly behind it that was my only conclusion. Racq is towing it to a mechanic near me tomorrow morning and I'm getting the mechanic to go over the whole engine as per my request.

  35. I bought an LC-1 about 7 years ago and it still works. The plastic face of the gauge has a slight crack in it from in-car heat and I had to replace the sensor once due to engine flooding. I think you'd be pretty safe with this purchase.

  37. Hi all, Apologies if something already exists like this, but weeks of reading I have come across nothing dedicated and only few posts of small relevance scattered through numerous threads Plenty of people seem to be going down the precision turbo pathway with their falcons. However, many threads have posts finishing early 2015. Seems that a huge amount of speculation revolves around the longevity of the precision units compared to the GTX competition. Regardless, many reputable tuners are loving the results and are continuing to recommend precision turbos. Wanted to start this thread in the hopes that people have been running them for a number of years/km's could put their input into their experiences with precision units in regards to reliability, how long they have lasted and their thoughts compared to other turbos they've run. Was thinking something like the following format: Unit: PTE 6466 Generation: Gen 2 Time/Km's Since Install: 15,000 Power/Boost Running: 400RWK on 98, 15 psi Other Turbo's Owned: Factory GT3576 Thoughts/Issues: etc etc Cheers for any input!

  38. Do what keith said, otherwise you'll be spending a fortune running back to the tuner every 5 min after each mod. Do it once, do it right (up to a point! ) If your using sct perhaps the tuner can put a couple of tunes in with different boost levels that you can download as you get used to the lower boost level!

I <3 Bananas yeah you definitely want a built tuner not some weak c*nt its kinda why I agree with some of the cops giving out yellow stickers actually.....but I can think of worse things such as ships running on heavy fuel oil in international waters which is hell dirty sh1t. I do believe these cars can be built and tuned to be environmentally friendly and high powered. I love the smell of cancer as a modified car gives it stick

Going to price up some arp head studs. Was looking at AR252-4302 first up. Second is a gasket kit including head gasket.
