  1. The ute tank is held up by only Two big support straps that go all the way around the tank with 15mm bold heads fasteners on the FG the fuel filler is shorter and fixed to the tank and the top connections are left in place but disconnected by the 90* lower push fittings comes out like a glove the B series is a touch longer process with needing to slide the diff back 150mm but that's only a tailshaft and 8 "U" bracket bolts on the leafs see
  2. Nope Drop the whole tank down from below, never ever lifted a tub or cut a hole up on the hoist and a few support brackets and out she comes
  3. I can have an FG ute tank out, pump swop ( inc sender ) and back in all in around 30min FG is easy !!
  4. Replace the tensioner and idler, these are the aftermarket steel items and are like $50 for both easy to change out love you Trent
  5. Yeh Spiro will do a good job on anything that comes through the door and definitely why not as the tuning market is needing to expand after the two biggest tunable platforms are all but dusted now. Heck at least this Kia thingo is turbo and RWD !!!
  6. So back to Face Book where it's all roses and praises ......
  7. Caugh caugh KIA's are being tooned already
  8. You say that like we're going to lie to you Ale
  9. 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 !
  10. FTFY
  11. 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
  12. It actually sounds half reasonable
  13. 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 )
  14. If it's a B series 800hp plazmaman kit it's straight bolt in if it's FG yes it's a bit more involved
  15. Because its cheap, nothing more nothing less unfortunately have a look at the most "up spec" intercoolers across big brands that have been doing it for alot longer ( HKS,Apexi,AMS,Plazmaman) and they all run Tube and fin for their biggest baddest intercoolers without flogging a dead horse the Jonny Tig cores alone are 8 times the cost of the competitions Bar and plate core ( $900+ vs $120 ) and when we start talking XR6T specific Jonny has taken Proven results from workshops across Australia that have taken a competitive stage 3 intercooler out and bolted in his Intercooler and not only picked up big power gains but have moved cars into lower time slip areas
  16. Yep you know it puffy lol if you need a pipe kit OP just shout out
  17. All plazmaman gear is Pro Series lol what HP rated unit is it ? The 76 series is 800/1000/1200 hp specs yeh second hand buying hasn't done you any favours with that 60mm pipe
  18. 1.1 is standard and good for around 10psi 0.9mm is good for around 17psi 0.8mm is good for around 20 psi 0.7mm is good for 25psi genuines all day erry day
  19. If it's staying stock, whatever really but any inclination to modify go genuine
  20. You need a new set of plugs and genuine ford coils
  21. Might help if we know something about your car and the mods it has buddy
  22. A few places are making the effort to suck out the strategy and re pump it in ( base ) after the repair so the cost should include this service because if not you're up for a "pairing" from ford or a workshop with IDS op
  23. Yep that's typical
  24. Don't ever try and understand Arron's thought process especially when the "Nizpro" % factor comes into things #THEUNICORN #NO250FORME
  25. It's just to much floral aromas for a pale ale but that said I'm a bit of a lover of the coopers pale ale but only "on tap" vs stubbies not much beats a fresh keg of coopers at the local and the difference between bottled is amazing imho
