  3. Everyone has to start somewhere. I think it's a testiment to his passion and love for what he does. This all started while I was pregnant with our first child and he came to me and said "I want to learn something new" I would rather someone start from nothing and do it out of passion than kick off from the middle and half ass it. I'm proud of what he is and what he's done and how he treats people. It's indicative of the person he is and the things he does for our family too. We're talking about the man who in his off time away from cars will be washing baby bottles, have a brain wave of a car he's working on, run to his laptop and down to the shed, adjust a feels things, then run back up and cuddle his boys. He always goes the extra mile for everyone. I'm his right hand man, literally, on the dyno when I have the time, and the way he cares and goes the extra mile is incredible. We've been late on many occasion because he could have stopped 3 runs ago and it would have been fine, but fine isn't good enough for him. I'm extremely proud of Aaron and the achievements he's made and the role model he is for our boys. I just have to deal with my 4 year old telling me he needs to go pick up some injectors and another turbo 6080, every bloody morning lol

  4. Thanks mate I've now passed it over to the lawyers I wont have anything to do with them anymore and they are not welcome here every again. All work can be done by someone else and they can pay for it. Over them Spoke with my next door neighbour yesterday who is in the construction game and he said he spoke to the builder when the garage slab was getting done and told him its wrong because they did but a step in the slab and did not water proof behind the dincel wall............LOL love it. Bye Bye Builder

  6. Hi to all on the forum Im Mark obviously aka Boosted Blu the proud owner of the White MK2 ute you see on the previous page of this thread that JETURBO has modded and tuned for me. My journey started just before Xmas last year when I purchased the ute. Im a forum lurker rather than a contributor and used the wealth of knowledge on here to research and work out what I wanted to do to my ute. So after reading the majority of this thread I contacted Aaron and over the course of roughly 2 weeks of numerous texts and the occasional phone call, we decided on what you see in this thread. I think you would agree the results speak for themselves and highly of Aaron's ability with this platform! Now I picked up the ute Friday night and drove it home during peak hour (yeh I know its only Adelaide) so I wasn't able to put it through its paces. So Saturday couldn't come round fast enough and after putting 200+ kms on it this is what I texted to Aaron that afternoon. Wow Wow oh my god My ute is nothing short of bloody amazing Cruising is so effortless and comfortable but when you start really driving it its just so exhilarating Power delivery is awesome and I now totally understand why the boost is held back a fair bit until it gets going To see the tacho and speedo climb so rapidly is crazy I left traction control on and the light kept flickering on and off Im too scared to turn it off with only those 245 tires on it (not into burnouts, prefer the power to the ground) To say you have exceeded my expectations is an understatement Kudos to you Absolutely outstanding mate Now I have no hesitation in recommending JETURBO to anyone who wants some work done on their car and as a matter of fact if you use anyone else you do so at your own peril, guys like Aaron dont come around too often. Hey Aaron you hit the nail on the head with my build and gave me more than I expected It was a pleasure doing business with you and I will continue to do so You the (Ford Platform) Man Cheers Buddy

  7. The purists aren't going to be happy but all going to plan, I'm hoping to run the Haltech IQ3 Street display. I've chopped into a spare facia to get an idea of how I'd make a flat area for the panel, plus create space for other gauges such as eboost2, start button, etc. After doing the mock-up in cardboard plus putting some photos to scale on it, I'm happy with how it would look. I'll now get an aluminium infill made with the intention to glass it in then blend in and refinish as close to factory (in black) as possible. I'll back mask and do some chrome highlights around the border etc. The original warnings (park brake and so on) I'll probably leave dead as the IQ Street has them incorporated.

  11. Nearly done. Got the diff bracket pretty much finished just ran out of steel for the top plate. Chassis bracket almost done just need to pick up some new longer bolts tomorrow n weld that together. Just ignore the average welding haha camera flash makes it look shocking. Was using the farther in laws gasless MIG and it was a bit sh*t. Should come up nice after a tickle with a flap disk

  12. So the new springs are sorted and I much prefer the stiffer setup, feels like it wants to handle now. Its currently at this height. Which is too low but it works and I CBF buying new QA1 shocks again. Then I picked these up this morning. Wheels should arrive this week coming but may be a few weeks to fit them up as camber brackets and guards still have to be sorted. Hankook ventus rs3 285/35r18 and pirelli pzero corsa asimetric 335/30r18 The the lefts were on sale at a ridiculous price so I got two of those and will get a right once all the guard work is sorted so I don't rub a $800+ tyre out if there's an issue with the guards (the right rear has the higher chance of rubbing due to the pan hard bar). 255/35r19 next to 335/30r18 And some more shiny in the bay.

  13. I just booked a 6 bed cabin for Friday and Saturday at Belair. Kids under 5 are free! I got rid of the clunk in the back of my car and I've got bearings arriving tomorrow and Monday. I'll save my polishing until Friday morning as it only takes a day or two for my car to get dusty af again. Things are starting to look up.

  14. So results are in and the long build is finished on one beautiful white ute The process started nearly three weeks ago when I put the once standard FG mk2 Turbo through it's paces on the dyno to gain a nice baseline figure and a chance to check all was well before the modifications took hold and we came in at 226rwkw which is all very typical for a ZF equipped ute. Powering on and a myriad of performances upgrades took place of standard parts and no two builds are ever really identical so it's always nice to see what will be at the end Long story short I've taken @Boosted Blu's to the 400 club with what's almost a stock looking engine bay ( a requirement ) and the figures are 379rwkw on 98 fuel and 437rwkw on E85 Settled in at 16.5 psi flat on 98 and 21.5psi initial hit on E85 trailing to 19psi uptop The Dyno sheets tell the whole story of exactly where the small FG turbo shines over a bigger frame G2 GTX3582 but all said and done the G2 didn't give it to much before it pushes that little turbo to the gutter. Something to be mindful of was the fact I kept the stall time against the roller to a minimum as the ute still retains the stock standard tailshaft so blowing that out wasn't high on my priority list so with a built unit I believe the gap would be even smaller against the stock turbo excuse the lack of printouts as the printer literally died so a new one was in the middle of being installed Then this happened..... and we're here .... the difference between 98 and E85 then the final before and after

  15. OK. Better report in. This little Mexican decided to infiltrate a day early under the cover of darkness. Snuck past the checkpoint (quarantine) without any issues and am currently holed up a couple of hundred k's behind enemy lines in Murray Bridge. Will be continuing the push forward in the morning, hoping to setup base camp in the hills overlooking Adelaide before lunch and will be awaiting reinforcements and local sympathisers to arrive with further supplies and to strengthen our numbers later in the day. I highly recommend the afternoon/evening tomorrow is spent pouring over the local intel along with a heavy session of R & R before the full frontal assault begins the next morning. Rab signing off for the night. May the turbo gods be on our side.

  18. Well here's the results ! old 348rwkw/466.2hp @ 20 psi new 383rwkw/514.8hp @ 21 psi big ol team effort but reports are the customer is wrapt with it as it's a totally different car. The owner can't believe how well it idles,drives and sounds it's also gainded the use of his A/C as previously it didn't work ( that would suck for the climate up there ) its an unusual list of mods including a std FG turbo but with a wheel upgrade to 63mm a external gate with a Turbosmart 45mm to screamer with an Eboost 2 with a tach driver connected bit of a donkey brand cooler but did have some good parts in the mix also it's about as good as we can get it doing the remote tuning but it's a decent graph and the data logs stack up where I want them so that's a job done

  19. Congrats biatch face So I selected our builder and had a design meeting this morning Almost reached final design, minimal changes (Kitchen sink is only a recessed single as we have the larger one in the butlers pantry etc) Pretty happy with what we've designed keeping in mind budget and so forth, 2x 300m2 houses the larger one being ours and the smaller for my parents. Huge back yard for the boys (we won't fence) and a huge multi use alfresco I'm pretty happy with our concept considering 90% is custom designed by us and we had criteria and budget to conform with. We're also having full stone bench tops, huge pivot front door and a bunch of other options in the kitchen Etc Super excited, hopefully it all happens and council do what they say and approve it Ps. Mostly happy coz I will get to live within 6kms from the cbd again and beach weeeeeeeeee

  22. Trying something new today and that's helping my good mate Anthony out as he's regularly up in the N.T tuning drift cars for the NT circuit and one of his customers has a FG G6ET that's been to every workshop in the top end ( could only be a few up there ) and it's apparently just not right in nearly every regard. so from down in SA it's already got it's first few tunes in it and it's looking good as she's purring like a kitten and trimming sub 3% on LTFT on E85 so hopefully between the two of us we can make a customer a happy camper and bring some life to the beast best results so far for its previous tuner is 348rwkw on 20psi #remotetuninglife

  23. Fark pixy.. I mean holy sh*t.. I remember looking at your plans ages ago. That water is not good. If this is on the lower levels and the waterproofing is gone behind your retaining.. well sh*t.. Damn man. Not slagging all builders but that 'your fault not mine' is something ive heard way too many times. Just recently did a walk through of a mates house after they finished framing it all up and two of the roof trusses had massive fractures in them. Builder agreed they needed to be replaced but said they couldnt enact the 16 week penalty if he didnt complete if they made him get them replaced. I <3 Bananas me man.. they could fracture at any point. Pixy ive got no advice you probably havent heard. Just take it one step at a time mate. You deserve that house to be brilliant.

  24. I'm pretty much copying the malwood kit. Should have pics tomorrow of it installed. Made a start on the front n rear brackets today. Only $40 in steel plate/pipe. $200 for the rods for both sides, LH thread heim joints and Nissan bushes/housing with RH threaded rod. So unlike the malwood kit it can be adjusted without removing a heim joint. All up will cost me less than $300 Gave under the tub a wash today. Came up pretty good. Used k&n airfilter cleaner as a degreaser. Worked bloody brilliant. Pic below shows how far the diff pinion is already pointing too the sky.

  25. Thanks mate, may have to do with the fact the car is ceramic coated as well. It is amazing stuff & highly recommend getting it done to any car! Since last year I've been running a detailing business & its really taken off, think I've definately found my calling as clients keep telling me that behind a buff is where I belong as apparently I have a 'gift'. I like to take that with a grain of salt! Regardless my car is always kept spotless

  31. About to start packing so I can leave as early this arvo as I can. Am going to spend the next 24 hours wondering what I forgot to bring. edit: good news - can get into the cabin from midday (not the 2pm check-in) so should be all sorted to deal with clients tomorrow. Will mean it's only the 1 day (monday) I'm tied up. Will try and sweet talk them into allowing us to use a firepit at night.

  33. WOW some excellent news all round. Congrats Stripes on the new house mate enjoy and may there be lot of good times. Fluffy love it both look great but my fav is the right side. With the double vanities in both bath rooms and not once they are used at the same time. Only thing I would make sure is A/C. If running ducted just make sure they adjust the frame to allow room to duct the up stairs. Fingers crossed all goes well. Rednose the paving looks good mate nice colour also. Bring on next summer

  38. WMMFGT: Last few weeks I've been making more and more typos. Realised it wasn't (all) me last night when I noticed some keys were activating on their own. Pulled off a couple of keycaps to find congealed milo and vegemite toast crumbs (I imagine that's what it was) The joys of a 2yo getting near a computer :S Damaged one of the pickups when cleaning so keyboard was stuffed. Bought a new keyboard today and all fixed.

  41. I want to add something to this thread too. I haven't meet Aaron as yet but we have spoken over the phone and also text. Last year (Nov) I needed a new turbo for my BFII XR6T(ZF) and got in touch with Aaron for some advice on which direction to go in. I'm a turbo Falcon veteran from 10 years ago with the second Nizpro kit in SA and the first to have a Nizpro built motor in SA too. Car was a weapon on Adelaide roads back then, but in the end it got crashed. Anyway, always wanted to replace that car so I'm back in the T scene now and I want to say this. In Adelaide if you want service with a personal touch and someone that will work on your car as if it is his own, Aarons your man. I have dealt with all the main guys here in Adelaide and in my opinion Aaron has found a gap in the market that needed filling. His a specialist, not a workshop. He is an expert with these cars, and after talking with him and considering what I have learnt and understand after ten years of keeping up to date with development, and turbo Falcon updates and issues, I would say his knowledge would be the best in Adelaide. We haven't done any work together at this stage, but I can tell by our phone conversations his the real deal! You don't want to be treated like another customer when you're having your car modified, you want to feel comfortable and assured that you will be looked after and this has not always been the case here in Adelaide, especially in the early days. Aaron is just what Adelaide needed in my opinion. Typhoon

  42. Dont know much about south australia. BUT, Jet seems to be the man for the turbos over there. No other shops seem to get mentioned. VERY different in other states. Many to choose from, BUT the good ones have been around for over 10 years.. If I lived in SA, jet would be tuning our cars. He seems to go that bit extra and work is top quality.

  49. Since I'd just done the front rotors and pads I figured I should do the rears too. The factory units had already been skimmed once from warpage and were acting up again. So a set of T2's and Remsa pads were thrown on. Got to here without too much drama... Then I noticed that the top slider pin was doing anything but - totally seized in. After MUCH cursing bashing twisting sweating and general mahem the little bastard came out. Did the other side with zero dramas which was nice cuz I was way over it by then lol I'm now wondering how much that stuck pin was causing the brake pulsing issues. Love brakes almost as much as exhausts....
