  6. Busy times guys but here's some updates of a few things on the go one amazing Circle D converter for Marks ute a set of ID1000's and walbro 460 to go with a Full Jonny Tig intercooler kit for @Gabbo_32 The one many have been waiting on for pictures and that's the Jonny Tig 1800HP kit with black pipes but polished cooler ( this is including the race intake and battery relocation kit) Those sexy welds Preparation for a full flange to yoke 1000hp Hardie Spicer tailshaft with 1350 flanges and unis for @fun001's build out with the old and looking very average at that New G2 already fitted and the rest is yet to come on this build as it's blown out to a new set of diff bushes and front hubs already with the rest of the mods but that's the way cars go sometimes

  9. I've already got a full custom high-mount and v banded housing so it will be getting a turbo to suit that. It arrived in Vic today actually - they called to confirm. I said again that I'm not set on the configuration and will be guided by them so once they've pulled it apart, we'll talk again. At this stage I think I'll be running the original turbine. I'm not sure if we'll go a big enough wheel to justify the upgrade. I don't believe it touched the housing so should be fine to reuse. My thinking at this stage is a 63mm wheel in maybe a 6+6. Mainly because, they traditionally aren't a high pressure wheel (for peak efficiency) and tend to come on earlier than an equivalent sized 11 blade. Think Precision 6235 v GTX 3582R. I think they sound hornier too Anyhoo, that's just me spit ballin. At the end of the day they'll build what works.

  25. Given my DIY tramp rods a work out over the last few days and it's completely gone. 1 to 2 to 3rd power skids on varying surfaces dry/wet and it's all sweet. Might consider tensioning them up for a trip to the drags to pull the pinion down abit. But they are fine on the street with no tension on em. Without a doubt the best non power related mod iv done to the ute

  48. Your mate has taken a marijuana. That ebay listing seems to be for a sedan with the wrong description/photo. You want one of these. http://m.ebay.com.au/itm/FORD-FALCON-UTES-PANEL-VANS-XH-AU-BA-BF-FG-XR6-XR6T-XR8-REAR-WHEEL-BEARINGS-2-/301456633363?nav=SEARCH Repco is cheaper than this and they supply a Timken bearing inside a repco box. About $40 each side if I remember correctly. If you want to do the front bearings then yes it is easier to buy the whole hub as the bearing comes pressed in. Not the case for the rears mate. Just remove the bearing yourself and take the bare axle into a suspension shop n they will charge you bugger all to press the new stuff on mate
