  4. While some of you guys were ripping it up at Racewars, I was doing pretty well at the Westernationals in Group 2 - Competition Bike. We top qualiified, won the round and the gold Christmas Tree (the holy grail of aussie drag racing) and reset the national record for DD/CBI to 8.339. I also ran 0.2mph off the national record terminal speed at 164.8mph. I've now got the WA Comp Bike track championship in the bag with one more round to go and at the end of the month we go to Adelaide and try to tie up the National Chmpionship. (both championships are a bit weak this season, but I'll take it) Next season's goal is to run a 7 and crack 170 mph, then we'll be proper fast!

  5. Captain's Log Star date 2016-06-21-17.22 This is week 2 of no boost. I complain, but...nobody listens. I have received news that some required parts will take 3 weeks to arrive. As my memories of my former life fade, the hatch is becoming proportionally more fun to drive. I subconsciously initiated a rear emergency brake induced oversteer event when turning a corner in the wet, and almost convinced myself it was "fun". I pray to the motoring overlords for my sanity. Luckily there remain stalwart defenders of the downtrodden in this bleak, perpetually "one atmosphere of pressure" world, who have come to the rescue with far more rapid availability of parts for my currently un-seaworthy war vessel. The WA Brembo & Diff Emporium proprieter @Ralph Wiggum suggested I contact The Barra Parts Hoarding Baron (also known as @Tocchi) which has proved fruitful. The work to the keel of my ship is completed and attention has moved to the bow which is to be strengthened and made oil-tight. I am now seeing a glimmer of hope that I shall experience air inputs above 1 BAR by the weekend. Signing off SJBB Captain of the Lacques dePaint -End of log entry-

  6. A bit of an update for the Rolls software. As some of you know I am the one helping Rolls in the background hunting through the assembler and finding new parameters and have just completed initial testing on a new feature for this software. I have been able to track down the independent control of the exhaust cam for the XR6 turbo and yes we have control There is a bunch of tables missing from the other products that I have found and have them in for the first release (TBA). An interesting one based on vehicle speed but currently a constant. So now the fun will begin. IH8TOADS pointed out we could do ghost cams and we have someone testing this as well. So higher overlap cams may be controllable at idle as well as removing the stuff Ford put in to reduce back pressure in the higher rev range due to the factory exhaust. I believe this is a first for us. We have been told it is not in other products.

  8. Hey fellas, I finally hit the Dyno and the track again.. The car still feels awesome and I'm in love with it once again So back on the Dyno, the only real change since last time is the custom age head studs, and the Circle d converter, I was happy that the tune was pretty spot on, with a clean 22psi, and crisp 0.84 lambda.. Had to try a few different strap down and load settings because it was just turning the tyres https://vimeo.com/169944444 Ended up with a consistent 456rwkw@6000rpm but close to 1300nm torque at 3500rpm, so I think that comes down to the torque multiplication of the circle d.. I was also able to get the converter to pretty much lock up completely by the top end of the run I know how much use like videos, so here... (All completed on closed private roads in controlled conditions) https://vimeo.com/169944684 https://vimeo.com/169944706 FYI: that was roll on from about 100kmh and started baking around 140kmh Anyway, got it all ready for Powerplay, but it might as well of got rained out, they let us on the track, but I'm not a fan of drifting an auto lol Got it to Sydney Dragway last night.. There's a few changes from my last outing a year ago.. The Shockworks, Circle D and M&H 275/50/17's The first run without any changes to the tune it went 10.6@133 with a 1.61 60" the peak boost was only 18psi and left the line with 8psi, so I believe that the boost dropped because it was loaded up harder.. That's my best 60 and it felt awesome, the weight was pretty much transferred to the back and it just stuck.. Plus I had a full tank, 2x20l gerri cans full and a bunch of tools haha Next lap I upped the wastegate DC which took it to 20psi, I think it went 10.5@136 but the throttle cut coming off the start line.. Looked over the log file and seems it hit a rev limiter at 4000 just after leaving the line, I found it and raised the limiter Went back out with the same DC and went 10.44@137 still with 20psi throughout the run, it felt stronger but still a 1.72 60" Turned up the DC another 10% and went out, this time I left the line with 15psi and it baked the tyres off the start line and went 11.1@139 and finally got back up to 22psi I got one more run in and left everything as it was.. Left the line fairly hard again with a 1.67 at around 8psi, it was pulling hard with 109mph 1/2 track but a cooler pipe came off around 3/4 track, I thought it was the box so I quickly neutralised it and hit the brakes.. Still rolled through the line with a 10.6@107mph So overall I'm proud of myself and the car, especially being able to drive it home with no issues.. The cooler temps were getting hot though, from about 50* to 60* thought the run, so I think it's time to upgrade the S2 cooler.. Maybe johnny tig? Thanks guys, I should have some videos of the runs soon

  12. (Tues) Carried on with mocking up all the bits to support the new turbo. Started on the top side of the dump. Was all going well till I used my thumb for the earth lead for my tig so called time and will crack on later in the week. It's a pretty tight fit but should turn out well. Wastegate outlet is going to be a challenge but should be nice and short and able to enter the dump at a fairly shallow angle. (Today) Has some family free time today so got to crack on with the lower section of the dump. It's longer than usual as it also deletes the cat. The extra whoop dee doo's in the middle and to tuck it up for clearance and also give me more clearance for the steering rack and steering shaft. Not the best pic but the previous dump sat well below the rail at this point and was forever dragging on driveways/speed bumps/etc etc and the cars not even that low. Unfortunately I was about 15deg short of all the bends I need (used an entire 3.5' doughnut) so had to pie cut and section a piece of straight tube to take up the gap. I'll weld the join between the down pipe and lower section last so I can clean up the transition between the bends and the sectioned straight piece after its all welded out. Now onto the next challenge..the wastegate piping...

  14. Ok so decent update time, first one is I tried "hard" to have a month off to have time to do the renovation down stairs but customer demand was high and it's been my pleasure to help them out so we finally sorted Micko's Beautiful BA turbo ( the one that just received the new T56 ) with battery issues , only one way to sort out crappy battery's and that's the bin. in place we go to the "trusty" Optima Yellow Top battery and we select the yellow top due to the extended time periods that the car sits in the shed un used Now some may remember Ethans Green BA Turbo that only made 240ish RWKW through the stalled BTR a few months back, well he went and bought himself this from NSW a few people will know the car but even though it has a massive parts list it had some "issues" and needed some Real love it drove home well from NSW to SA but the list stacked up fast that needed attention and since I've had it it's had... full major service full ZF flush PWR trans cooler speedflow fittings exchanger removal dump pipe removed and wrapped with steel ties and pig tail ends 6 boost removed and wrapped new flange gasket new flange studs and locking nuts 304 stainless nordlocks on all hot side FPR relocation and new hoses FPR gauge silicone hoses clamps and other stuff to get it the way it needed to be The car has hardware wise GTX4202 50mm hypergate 6 boost high mount plazmaman race spec plenum ID 2000's plaz rail plaz under car surge with twin pierberg pumps Turbosmart FPR 2000 X-Force 4* full stainless system valvesprings once up to spec it was time to throw her onto the dyno and check the specifics of what tune had been done to it , as best we know it was tuned at Autotech engineering to 552rwkw on 29psi and a later Dyno sheet from Matouks Racing showing 495 @ 29psi so going on that and the fact it has an Eboost street and X4 sct tuned it was practical to see if it would return the same/similar results now 29psi on a stock engine stock ZF and stock tailshaft is something I dislike greatly but if that's what the customer wants that's what he will get so first run on low boost is 420rwkw and low boost is 16psi and Fat fuel mixtures high boost was 29psi but returned 545rwkw with rich mixtures again so this is where I stepped in ( much to my concern) but I knew it had more in it, dropped Eboost Gate pressure from 75% to 60% and leaned out the FPR to 3.5 bar and she came in swinging ! 566RWKW @ only 27psi and acceptable mixtures the video is only of the 561rwkw run but the sheets have the 566 on them enjoy !

  19. So I had a nice fellow tell my F6 was a fucking piece of shit and I should "buy a fucking Holden c*nt" on my way to work this morning. He clearly felt his base spec v6 ute was a higher class of car than mine. His useful life advice continued at the next set of light but unfortunately, the volume of my gate pipe made it difficult to hear him. I'm not sure why he felt compelled to offer such advise but it was nice of him to go out of his way to offer it at 0645 this morning hopefully I see him again next week so I can thank him for his advice.

  20. So my racewars weekend was kind of odd. Had some very frustrating issues with my car that really highlighted how little time I spend prepping it. I loved helping all the boys out and getting there sh*t to run as well as we could, but next year I really need to take time to go over my car properly. Saturday saw some average runs, but I was never out to set records. Given the setup was all new and largely untested I found some issues with boost control so spent some time replumbing the wastegate. @Uberxr was a big help and even gave me a banana so I would calm down and not wind up punching on of the many passers by who where asking very silly questions or suggesting what engine should be in the car. (You're not you when you're hungry here have a banana) My next two runs saw my terminal speed go from 201 to 224, but I was still having to peddle it and on the third run, I backed out early as the car didn't seem right. Turns out gut instinct was right and on the return road the belt let go. I made a fairly hot entry (speed wise) into the pit and was out pushing before the car had rolled to a stop and the usual suspects arrived to help get the wounded army tank back into the pics Special guest appearances from a couple of forum regulars in that shot. Much finger pointing, ohhing and ahhhhing occurred and after we raided everyone's parts stashes we realised we had a spare belt but not a balancer. so my day was done. At least she looks good when hard parked Saturday night saw me lapping around Albany to return some tools I had borrowed and eventually lending some tools to a mate in need before heading home depressed to a house full of drunken happy people so before I could say "who's phuckin idea was racewars" (it was discostig's for the record) I had a beer in one hand and a piece of oddly sauceless pizza in the other. Once we where suitably liquored up we did the obvious thing and looked into whey I was still seeing 26+lb of boost on minimal gate pressure. Luckily for my car, Toads and I do some of our best work after a few and soon spotted the reason. Silly error by me when setting up a couple of alternate tunes the night before saw incorrect load axis on a couple of critical tables which resulted in excessively retarded timing and overboost. So we fixed that, drank more beer and took the piss out of @IH8TOADS early onset dementia. Luckily Repco in Albany where more than happy to lighten my by several hundred $'s (at trade price) for the parts I required and it wasn't too long before this happened. I only got 1 more 800mtr run before the 1000's started so I used this as yet another part throttle test pass and the army tank managed 222. The 1000mtr runs saw issues crop up again, I wasn't able to maintain correct fuel mixtures for the boost/timing I was running so this resulted in less than ideal trap speeds. Log below show, RPM (Red),Throttle Position(Brown) and Speed (Green) and illustrates how many times I had to roll off the throttle and back on. Obviously this shows the car is nowhere near it's potential but this was the best it could do on the day so the decision was made to park it. A couple of tweaks on @Uberxr & @-Stever- primer missles saw them both gain a couple of KMH. The decision was then made to write a balls to the wall tune for @turboknapp car which featured all of the boosts, all of the sparks and a little less of the fuels but by the time this was done and in the car the lanes where close so the big boys could duke it out, so that was racing for the weekend. Sunday night hilarity included, Rude German waitstaff, disagreements about Private Party attendance, Steak Steak and moooooar Steak, Boong Eggs, Stolen Buckets and Arguments about Dogs and was one of the best times I've had in a long time. I think these two pics pretty much sum up the experience You win some and you loose some The weekend may not have gone to plan but the opportunity to hang out with some old mates, cement some friendships with new mates, buy a new airconditioner, get a haircut and learn about Uncle Garry and collect oh so much valuable logging data was worth it. Big thanks to those mentioned above and also @mummba for the constant laughs @LazyBrennan for spend two hours helping me remove the balancer (and also @Uberxr for the stellar ignition technician work) 2018 RW programme- Built Trans and TailShaft ALL the boosts and Sparks Aero oh so much Aero. There are some pretty big brick walls around the 245/250 mark you need to punch through. If I only I knew someone who knows someone who's an Aero Engineer for a Major Nascar team.........oh wait I do. For anyone who's thought about, talked about,dreamt about running your car... Don't be a Do it! Lastly Phuck Primer cars

  21. on 98 fuel . I made some mistakes jamie said . The tach adaptor that the auto electric guy fitted is wrong hooked up . Then I stuffed up with the starter motor wirering .the soldering I did did not work as it had voltage drop . It still has aftervthey re done it so it might be the new battery or the battery relocation cable that I done 3 years ago .no idea so that will take some sorting out .

  23. A few facts to help everyone along Sweet feck all separates the ba/BF/FG heads flow wise, Yes the FG has a slightly different designed intake runner (the rear port has a lower short side) and chamber design (it actually shrouds the valves creating a restriction in that area) to introduce "swirl" sorry to say but zero flow gains are made here, that's more to help create a more complete burn to aid emissions and economy The rear port flowed 5cfm better, I don't see this as a gain, I'd much prefer both sides of the port flowed exactly the same so the air won't favour one side which could actually drop overall flow, and as said, it's more for economy As for the FG head making 1100hp, it's more to do with the extra 10* of duration on the cams and better flowing manifolds, both intake and exhaust Atomic would of requested the BA head as that's what his machinist would of had a Cnc program for Abit of hand crafted porn for you to look at... just remember that every CNC port at some stage started life as a hand ported design after many hours of flow testing and dyno testing.. these ports may look like everywhere has been enlarged but it definitely hasn't not all hand porters are equal Back to you Jet, this thing should crack! And love your work as always

  24. Bitter sweet wmmfg. We had our new little man today.... after many issues and what felt like forever at 10.58 this morning our little William was born. 6lb 13 ounces 48cm long Completely gorgeous and petite Hes had some minor breathing issues and his blood sugar was almost 0 so he's currently in the NICU on a IV drip. We're hoping not for too long. His breathing has already settled and now they will spend a few days getting his blood sugar back to normal without the need for a drip and just my milk. Hes so precious and perfect and snuggly and stolen out hearts. [emoji173] Being stuck in recovery while they take your baby isnt ideal. We got skin to skin but then he had to be taken. I have got to go see him for an hour after and I have had to go back to the ward for a bit... so I'm trying to pump some milk for him when I can get up and go back down there. The nicu staff are amazing. And im so so proud of my amazing husband. I don't often get mushy... but when a nicu doctor comes over and says how amazing he was when Will was a bit upset and he took it upon himself to open the incubator doors before any nurses could get there and calm him without even asking, she said it was the sweetest thing they've seen. I think there are a few nicu nurses eyeing him off down there in the nursery lolol.

  28. Hey guys, it's been a while but that's because poor pep has just been sitting in the driveway, I've been flat out working on other people's cars It's not all that bad as I get to spend other people's money haha, I've been working on all sorts of projects from full engine builds, full ZF builds (standard to big boy), fuel system mods and upgrades and a hell of a lot of tuning, hopefully have some big hitters at the track shortly I did end up installing the Johnny Tig cooler on and it made 475-482kw with consistent back to back dyno pulls for over an hour, averaging 45* temps... compared to the previous 450ish with the only change being the cooler... same dyno, same load, same tyres, and virtually the same tune Size comparison, JT is taller and thicker, I asked for the same width so I didn't have to move or modify the A/C lines PW2 JT you can see the difference in density of the core, obviously less density allows a higher volume of air to pass, but needs a larger charge air area to cool, and a higher density core like the PW will cool more charge air but will generally limit the volume of air that passes through it. So your cooler needs to be suited to your setup easy figment, just had to grind the rear lip off the crush bar, as with any other 100mm cooler, and drilled and tapped the bottom two holes rather then using a nut and bolt The weighed PW2 11.6Kg And JT 9.1kg Would people be interested in me making a tuning thread similar to Jets, just to show what I've been working on?

  33. Ok we have ghost cam working! Ghost cam on demand! Super lumpy idle 35 degrees overlap on exhaust cam Car is completely undriveable with that much overlap but it sounds super cool. Currently I can only get the lumpy cam when you have your foot on the throttle, as soon as idle mode kicks in it goes smooth again. So basically have the reverse of a ghost cam, lumpy as hell when trying to drive, smooth at idle. Will need to find the maps that control the idle exhaust cam timing to get a true ghost cam working. Anyway, progress is progress!

  34. Excellent summary @Ralph Wiggum Was an awesome weekend and has just left me wanting more!! I drove the car as I drive it on the street, made a few changes to the tune but that was about it. Some observations from my point of view. My intake temps were getting hot from sitting around for long periods with the engine running and bonnet down. Would see close to 60 at the start of the run, drop to mid 40's and back up to 60 at the end of the run.....so I'll use a spray bar next time and work on keeping the car cool. As Ralphy mentioned....aero. At 250+ I could hear the factory spoiler over the external gate. It was a blur in the rear vision mirror is was flapping around so much!! Some small aero mods will go a long way we think!! When to change gears!! This was a big one for me. I changed into 6th every run...even for the 800m. Having looked at data/times etc etc, I really needed to raise my speed limiter to 6500 rpm and cross in 5th. My best 1000m run had me 9km/hr down on my best 800m. I'm certain it has a 265 in it as is. Next year will see more rpm and maybe a slightly taller tyre so I'm crossing in 5th still. Lastly the stock spaghetti rod BA bottom end and stock oil pump gears still held together. Was seeing upto 20.5psi on a 67mm compressor!! How long will this thing last!! Thanks everyone, was such a fun weekend!!

  35. definitely need more details on this build Thanks mate, I have a build thread here that I will be up dating soon as I get a bit of time, basically before hand it was a 9 second car with a btr 4 speed, but in the last year iv changed the setup dramatically. the car has a build engine with mostly all atomic 698 gear but with a bit of extras to hold the power better, the head is hand ported with cms spec cams, 1500hp rated th400 with custom billet bolt together converter, the turbo is a precision sportsman gen2 7685 turbo rated to 1350hp which after the second round of fine tuning I amhoping to get to 850rwkw mark, all turbosmart gate an regs an blow of valves, boost is controlled by co2 pressure ams 1000 unit, gipson tail shaft an true track 3.46 diff ratio, billet 1400 cv driveshafts ims diff hat, all autometer gauges,johnny tig 1800hp intercooler, hypertune plenum, crg turbo manifold, the car still runs the standard ecu with sct tuning software which joe from cms has been tuning this car for years,. I will be up loading more videos soon to my build thread an sharing more information on the progress of this car. The aim is to run 8.5s 160 plus mph streetcar.

  36. Progress ..... After repeated and meticulous cleaning of any fibre and materials from rag use along the way everything has gone back together like a glove and the engine is ready to be installed all valve train components had been checked and tested with mechanical rotations to always make sure it's operating as intended, used sparingly my favourite is Nulon building paste that gives metal on metal some lubrication before the engine oil can circulate and gain pressure most of the construction from this point on was limited in photographs as it all happened quite quickly but I do have some final dressed up pictures, it's all ready to go back in the car and onto doing some KMS then getting her onto the dyno for some action as we are tentatively chasing a Private test and tune day at the drag strip enjoy

  37. Progress ... Rotating bottom end assembly has been checked for clearances and visual wear on all main cap 360* bearings including thrust ends that would only be 50kms old maximum so seeing them "as new" is a comfortable feeling, crankshaft is immaculate and cylinder boars are all showing full cross hatch hone markings. SCAT rod big end play have all measured up exactly the same in at 0.583mm cold ( crank/rod/crank with 63FT/lb on the ARP2000 rod bolts with ARP moly lube main cap studs ( ARP 12mm ) have been installed to 15FT/lb seated then the Atomic 10mm Girdle with windage tray have been installed ontop, ARP2000 10mm washers weren't needed with the Atomic 10mm Girdle so again Moly Lube on nut seat was applied sparingly and the three stage torque up process goes into play (30/60/90)FtLb whilst rotating the crank at each set point. To keep an eye on proceedings I mark with a "white" dot the 30FtLB seat then With a purple mark the 60FTlb mark and finally nothing for 90 as that's the movement from the purple mark once 90 is achieved it's left for 30min and re torqued again to 90ftlb. I actually did this twice to make sure ! Bottom end has been painted and fully cleaned to within a inch of it's cast iron life so new liquid sealants will work as intended and that requires had filing for that flat true surface head has been re assembled with new valve stem oil seals,those stainless valves,90lb valve springs with retainers and standard locks ( collets ) have gone one step further with an old school method of "indexing" the spark plugs ( have a google ) but in short it's Aiming the plug at the intake valves vs having the back of the plug electrode facing them, some will say it does nothing but some will say there's a few HP in it and a "fuller" cleaner burn cylinder event especially down low with the repeated spark cycle per event but either way why not it's free and it's uniform at a bare minimum

  41. I'm skipping a big update here from picking the car up from the mechanic's but meh... I'll add it at some point. Swooped on a good value purchase from this forum a couple weeks ago and have been sitting on them since then...until a message from Wiggum saying he has a buyer for my old squirters who was hot to trot so we made it happen yesterday! Massive thanks to him as usual. Pics time! Out with the old...I was happy to watch as we were working with limited time and I know who I'd bet is faster at this sh*t When I saw the throttle body come off I took the chance to give it a clean... you can see the inlet is pretty dirty in the above pic. At least I'm good for something, and carrying the throttle body/carby cleaner in the boot every day paid off hahaha Front Back Mid way point - new ones have just come out of the ultrasonic cleaning bath. Good for jewellery too so I'm told so if you need to convince the missus you need one tell her it's a gift for her Shots of the nozzles. The 42lb outlets look the same as a stock set - just slightly bigger holes KPM Just for fun here's a stock set he happened to have there at the time (pic taken after he'd cleaned the filth from my old ones) In with the new! Woot No change in power levels right now - Ralph just adjusted injector values to suit the new flow rate...most importantly let's check that I still get mad flutter... ...check hahaha! Another wholesome visit to The House of Wiggum - where Lightning Strike B series are not only accepted, but encouraged. Here's a pic as proof he secretly loves unpainted cars hahaha The loudest car by far is actually the Rangie over on the right though...it's pretty awesome on full noise limiter bashing. The dogs 4 houses away also agreed.

  49. I have been very busy of late, so not much has changed. I'm waiting on Strecchlon (Vacuum form plastic) to arrive, so that I can skin some carbon onto the dash spears and console parts. Here is a pic of a spear that has been prepped for skinning. I have made the mould for the DJR320 front splitter, so it will be made soon. I managed to find some time yesterday to fit the BF tail lights and the new rear bar. I apologise for the quality of the pic.
