  1. Got the Ute finished today. Finished up all the wiring. Both the 044 and the walbro intank now have there own relays triggered from the stock pump wiring (inertia/roll-over switch will shut pumps off still). Going to put a cover over the relays eventually by won't really matter once the hardlid goes on. Gave it a much needed wash. Had 1 minor f*ck up. I was wondering why the Ute wasnt idling and 044 was making bulk noise and stuttering. After much confusion I ended up having the feed/return lines back to front on the chassis rails. So swapped em round and hooked it all back up and it ran perfect. Deleted the stock filter so now it just has the earls one in the tray. Used a male and a female 5/16th hardline adaptor. And most importantly took it for a spin! Been atleast a month since its seen boost. The shocks are much nicer now softened up. The swaybar makes a noticeable different, feels much more positive. Tramp rods work mint. No binding noises. No skids yet but gave it a stab in second and it just lit them up with no tramp what so ever. Beer time[emoji482]

  2. Ok so had the chance to lean on the new Garrett G2 GTX82 with that ex chaser that was in two weeks ago as it now has a built tailshaft so she's ok to take that initial hard hitting ramp in of boost without wondering if she's going to go all "Twister" on me and split the car in half haha so a big gain and came in a few under the "Dyno Queen" soft ramp tune last time but a respectable 498rwkw @ 21.5 PSI flat and the turbo is coming on as hard and fast as it possibly could The graph says it all .... ( again please excuse the chitty phone pictures )

  3. Just a wee bit of poke....... Fronts will be right once rolled and camber is sorted. The rear rims sit flush with the guard but the pirrellis are pretty wide and I don't want to have the stretched look. I'll probably sort a b series axle to fix that, cant see the guards pumping out that much.

  6. An xbox or Playstation or Harvey Norman PC is fark'n powerful and flash for 90% of the people who buy them. For a while. A custom PC lasts a lot longer - but can be upgraded later to still be powerful. (same pc from PS1 days still runs quick. PS1 is now a Lada) To add longevity (power/flash wise) to any of the above requires community, modability and desire. No one is going to spend time, nor is the community/desire going to be there to upgrade/hack the xbox, PS or HN PC - will be a new model later to swap over for. The custom PC will have parts swapped out, have the bios entered and tweaked, be broken, fixed, broken and fixed again. To me most cars are xboxes, playstations or HN PC's No matter how great they are at launch - no matter how great the specs are - that's the best they'll ever be. Some cars though - they get "Jailbreak"'d They become the custom PC versions - get tweaked, upgraded, overclocked, broke, fixed, broke and fixed again. Has the Kia got the factory or the community support to be anything other than a console or HN PC? Will it be the next WRX or EVO or FPV or HSV? Or will it be the next Hyundai Soupe?

  8. getting mine tuned on 98 from a reputable tuner was the best thing ever. got more kays to a tank. ran better, a little bit more poke. was great! definitely worth it. now I hardly get the opportunity either, that's what the drag strip is for or do some track days. doesnt matter if you have a 400kw car or a 200 kw car. 5 kays over and you get dicked you still lose either way. power means sh*t. just self control.

  19. Hi all, I took my, recently purchased, ex pig rig FG Turbo to the Race4Real meet at Eastern Creek (WSID). I managed to get a little bit of in car footage (I missed the first run... because I'm forgetful). The car is completely stock. Hopefully this helps some of those "I have a stock xr6 turbo what do youse guys reckon itll run down the quarter?" questions that ALWAYS pop up. Cheers.

  27. Seriously though if you spend $22 on a volt gauge and $30 on boost gauge don't expect them to be too accurate. Also arronm has a very good point. It's hard enough watching my boost and afr gauge that are dash mounted and keep an eye on the road. Looking down and actually getting a reading is a recipe for disaster.

  30. Ok, I though I would write a a quick "how to" on replacing the stock oil feed line with an Earls filter kit. I did this while I was changing my oil so I had the oil filter removed which made it a lot easier. Start off by removing the sender cable from the sensor. Now use a long socket and remove the sender unit. This is what should be left on the car. Remove the washer and the old oil feed line and the washer behind the feed line. (unclip the old line from around the top of the engine will make it easier to move) Use another long socket and remove the adapter that goes to the block Put the adapter into the vice and inside the unit remove the clip. With the clip removed now pull the small filter out. The instructions I had said to clean it and put it back. I pulled mine out and left it out. When I put the banjo over the adapter I noticed the hole didn't really line up so I elongated the hole.     Now I'm happy the oil will flow.     Now remove the old oil line from the turbo and throw it in the bin.   Screw the adapter into the turbo to receive the braided line.   Install the adapter back into the engine. You will need to use some sealer on the threads. Screw the braided cable to the banjo. Put the washer then the banjo then the washer and the sensor back on and plug the cables back in.     Run the braided lines to the filter and tighten everything up. Make sure you take note on which way the arrow is facing on the filter when you install it! I'm currently making a bracket from aluminum that screws to the from of the engine to hold the filter.

  31. If it's powerful and reliable as well as decent build quality it might win some decent fans that are not already attached to a brand too hard - either new drivers or those that are happy to swap badges. People like myself who love Fords tragically and don't like the idea of buying another brand will be harder to convince. I respect any car can can give me a run for my money down the drag strip, but that's just me. Has to be pretty special to want to buy one...I'd love a Dodge Hellcat or Demon. As for modding the Kia Stinger for more power - if the engine has decent power it might not have much left in terms of tune-ability if it's already at the pointy end of what the components can withstand. Time will possibly bring the goods though, as we saw with B series modded power levels increasing massively from 2002 to 2008! 300rwkw and 11 second quarters used to be impressive, now it's barely worth mentioning unless it's to someone that has never modified! Luckily an 11 second car still feels fairly impressive to passengers that haven't gone for a spin in a powerful car yet

  33. Yeh I pretty much put my foot down and said it needs a shaft before I pilot the thing with a fast ramp rate and it was something he was going to need anyway what he blows up from here on in is up to him but that being said I bet it lasts forever just like that FPVHEL I did that went 566rwkw and still blazing tyres

  35. As I said - if the platform backs up the design then am all for it. If the brochure is all gloss then I'm not. I think on this forum there's a hell of a lot of quiet satisfaction and complacency that the platform overdoes the brochure. I can't see us getting this sort of performance/dollar again til electric cars (with zero limitations) become affordable.

  40. So I modded an r34 gtr in Assetto Corsa for drag racing. It has a couple of suspension mods, a hectic grip mod, boost, wg and boost gauge mods, weighs 300 kg less (around 1335kg) and obviously a power mod. Maybe some other crap I can't recall right now. I found slipping the clutch in first to launch and short changing into 2nd will keep the front end down. It won't do a skid due to grip. The turbo really comes in at 6k rpm. Here is the file on dropbox. You go to Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\content\cars\ks_nissan_skyline_r34\data Backup your data folder and replace it with the modded one. I managed a 6.999 quarter mile on the back wheels. Have fun and share your modded cars if you have some.

  47. You're missing the part in relation to that diagram that shows tube and fin coolers flow better and have quicker heat transfer. A tune and fin cooler can make more power and cool down quicker within a exact dimension comparison and can do it again within a shorter time frame when heat soaked than a bar and plate cooler will. Bar and plate has always been considered inferior for these reasons. Fwiw I prefer bar and plate cos I'll just get (a farken huge one) the biggest one I can utilize. A large bar and plate cooler can absorb the heat and flow well due to it's size. An intercooler has a much larger effect on intake temps than piping does but at low/off boost driving the piping will get heat soaked while the cooler stays cool due to airflow. This piping cools down pretty quickly when on boost. A custom water to air setup would work better than either on the turbo fords imo but most folks aren't going the custom route with various mods. It's bolt on for days which in a way is good because there are proven results available for comparison. Water/meth injection would solve a lot of issues too but that's getting off topic.
