  1. Yeh you might be hanging onto it for a while at 16k
  2. Could probably nudge 20-23k for it to the right buyer that may want your exact combo with low kms
  3. Pop a load in her moisturiser
  4. Pi$$ in her cutlery draw job done ....
  5. BA-BF about 7psi total FG XR6T about 12psi total
  6. Nice work Joe post up the dyno videos as they are impressive
  7. Khunt arse
  8. Piks of going OK ?
  9. Haha just make sure you do bigggggg skidsssss down the street as I know my neighbors will appreciate it why are youse comming to Adelaide anyway there's nothing here haha
  10. Sorry mate a BA even with 70k on the clock will need more than just a direct swop of rods, there will be so many associated parts thet will need checking/cleaning/machining/testing and then complete assembly again even if the pistons/boar are already in good condition but I place bets on at 300+rwkw the boars will need a machine/hone/overboar to clean up at around 15-20 though as they wear "out of round" the fact is you could just do a rod swop but why would you screw less than perfect back together when going for power results ?, you just wouldn't shes a slippery slope mate as a semi built engine will swollow 7-10K easy as the "basic" upgrade list is long ! a Typical mechanic/mechanical workshop will charge with machine costs and labour close to what a good aftermarket bottom end is to buy direct from Atomic or the like a cheap option is a new FGF6 short from Ford for ~ $3800 drop it in with some good timing gear and a checked over head with new studs you should be able to get away with a solid 400rwkw capable package for around 7k if you're doing it yourself
  11. Unsure fellas as life is extremely chaotic atm
  12. Nothing just a wind up about what autotech can charge but in all seriousness that graph is less than desirable
  13. From the customer when he seen the bill and then the graph lol
  14. It's showing a decent wack of Knock Retard/detonating or it's spinning the tyres like crazy ! DD dynos don't have the smoothing feature but this is what a clean DD tune should look like
  15. Not such thing on a DD looks like Spiro let the apprentice have a go that day
  16. Who the feck tuned that mess ?
  17. Yeh that's a decent stock figure, the few manual F6 B series I've done roll up around 200rwkw ( lowest one ) to 212rwkw ( highest stock figure ) but all the same good before and after results mate
  18. Everyone is going to want a "rattler" now
  19. Great to hear she's all sorted mate, always little niggles that pop up ! hummm I can't wait to hear a video of that beautiful motor running, bet she's whisper quiet with such a professional engine builder on the case......
  20. Don't you have one of those Keep Paying Money intank modules ? and why are you still struggling with why the knock sensor activity on the scanner is incorrect, like seriously! sure hope pull your socks up on your own tuning platforms scanner
  21. Is the car custom tuned or factory?
  22. No Chit weeeeeeeeee
  23. So after having a moment in life where I thought about taking my self back to tafe to " gain knowledge " and better my self I have joined a dyno and basic tuning course on wednesday nights, puerly to better my skill base and gain more respect for tuning. So as it stands last night was a blast ran over some safety stuff and got into it, we are using a mainline 500 chassis dyno and a mainline proflow engine dyno all latest and greatest gear First up we ran through the screens/display on the monitors and went through different pages keeping note where to fill out info and make each run correct data wise for future referance, fair bit to remember but iam sure ill pick it up more and more Intresting fact I didnt think was a mainline feature was ramp rates and the direct effect it can have on a run, honestly thought this was a D/D thing First car up was a toyota corolla completely set up with EGT probes close to the head, and all the normal sensors connected as normal ( no obd2 ) Had a few runs looking at what to expect at idle and as temp rises, and the relation of the results and heat , then we started playing with a few timing marks and the effects of retarding timing and the way the egt's sky rocket with small ajustments ( crazy stuff imho ) and also the loss of power/torque readings After we did a bit of theory we went to look at the engine dyno and the engines avaliable to play with, set up and real time tune. First off the batt is a GEN 3 with cam, hedders, intake using a autronic sm4 with Kalmaker software ( 350fwkw ) Also a red 202, boss 5.4,ecotech 3.8,4age, and some others . Next week we will look at the flow bench and are aloud to bring in anything we want flow tested and some basics on CNC porting effects etc etc, So far fairly stoked with whats happening and the fact we will be tuning cars with ecu's not just dizzys.tafe have been supplied a large range of cars including a 3.5 ralliart magna on NOS with ajustable shot and a VQ stato with 5.0, 5.7 vx wagon and the rolla and any car we want to bring along The lecutrer has done over 6000 runs with not one poped donk so far so I feel its my right to bugger that right up for him with my car lol Pourpose of this thread is to share my experiance and a bit of q and a with people who may know about tuning as HP TUNERS is avaliable for use aswell and I can see myself buying this softwear to eventually play around with Good times a comming boys !
  24. Way to nail that one keif lol
