  1. ^^ creepy
  2. that uploaded version of the image is a little blurry. The full version doesn't show up any cracks thanks for your advice, anyway, as I said I'll keep an eye on it.
  3. there are no cracks at the bolt holes anyway, I'll keep an eye on the bolts loosening to see if there's a problem, but they certainly weren't loosening on the original 210,000km+ usage - they were tight as FARK haha
  4. If you mean the little chips from the turbine blade hitting the housing, yes. If you're asking if this turbo needs to make a lot of PSI, then the answer is no. It'll be fine for the application.
  5. solid
  6. morning all
  7. Replaced my turbo... Fitting this: Turbo out and looking at the exhaust housing: The reason the cheap CHRA failed almost immediately after fitting: The locking nuts and nordloc washers lined up: This is literally the first time I've used a gasket here And the studs, nuts and nordloc washers in place for turbo to manifold: And the same for the dump pipe The two turbo's side by side in "supercore" configuration: And all back together and ready to go back in the hole: Didn't take it for a drive as I was too dirty and it's likely to overbooked and it's too late at night. Booked in for a tune on 7th June Might add injectors, fuel pump and punch the cat

  9. the apartment I'm renting (approx 50sq.m) was bought for around $500,000 (as part of building it as I'm the first resident in this particular apartment). I'm 14km or so from Melbourne CBD.
  10. pics of heads?
  11. It's all about location, for price.
  12. This guy knows ^^
  13. is having a really nice house the adult equivalent of having the nicest bmx as a kid?
  14. quality = a workout that I power through and feel good about before/during/after. What helps with the quality is that nobody else was there and I had free reign over the music in the place and all of the equipment pics of gym here -> http://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/topic/92232-the-dm-what-made-you-feel-good-today-thread/?do=findComment&comment=1612926
  15. if you're on a mobile phone, just pressing the refresh button will work. Some browsers you need to click on the URL itself and press enter. The blank page issue is a totally separate one to the original issue in this thread and was caused by advertisers making changes to the site to get more ads onto it... painful.
  16. Quality late night gym session completed
  17. looks like a filthy steep driveway... also, pics of garage? that's the best bit, clearly
  18. As usual, the poor man pays twice the cheap core didn't last. Oh well, it only cost me a fraction of what a genuine one would have. Even the two purchases combined were less than a genuine CHRA these days
  19. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Thanks to Butt Plug for his service
  20. whinge thread living up to it's name, I see... #pointlessthreadispointlesslypointless.
  21. the N/A isn't even worth modifying to try and make power, whether it's manual or auto. Just get a nice cat-back exhaust for some sound and put some suspension and/or wheels on the car so that it looks and sounds tough, but actually isn't
