  1. Melbourne can chug a full load and ya can keep ya hipsters to
  2. Thanks for the kind words Dazza Some simple stuff but interesting all the same for me last week starting with @Roo32 coming in for a service,Jonny Tig 4* race intake and battery relocation kit and aftermarket pipe kit all in black Had Ben in for a service and turbo swop as the old 100,000km factory turbo had developed the "death rumble" so just a changeover with a FG mk2 factory turbo so like for like, took a video for the peps who don't know what that sounds like then I've finalised @pro_xw98's engine build and is ready to install, the pictures just don't do it justice imho new water pump and pulleys,engine mounts new sensors to go in also Alex had the new CRG lowmount HPC coated with the new rear housing and looks schmick
  3. 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 !
  4. That's always sad, good looking hound there, what was he ?
  5. Get your tuner to fit and re tune to suit your engines current capabilities as 130,000kms is a long time for a tune to still be "perfect" might be work a call to see if they can supply and fit as you might end up with more options for the same money
  6. Yep a sad day this one what a shame
  7. Cheers Trent Had a bit on lately and I'm enjoying tuning the N/A V8 range alot, it's even a bit weird how much I like them and the gains are tiny in comparison to a turbo falcon where I can drag 30-40rwkw's out of the car with a tune only but having to work for each and every KW is nice for some reason haha anyway I tuned a BA Fairmont today with the 3V v8 donkey engine and it had a set of advanced Tri Y's, hi flow cats and a single 3* cat back system a F6 Typhoon lower air intake on the factory airbox and some fresh 98 fuel with the BTR hanging in there at over 200,000kms on the clock Pumped out a stout 203rwkw before (lol) and after a full custom tune ended at 219rwkw with a sizeable gain from start to finish and the 3V just wanted a bit of fuel in her where the Boss 4V takes well to a lean off of target fuel to pick up KW's,Dialled in the timing with the new "Link G" knock module and noise cancelling headphones All said n done happy days I think
  8. Jamie at Forced Performance Is the man I recommend people to use
  9. Nope I wouldn't, there's a poor pro drifter that slides a FG ute that's been through about 5 engines now and each one melts pistons 5 or 6 so they just keep replacing the engine and roll 80lb dekas also and assume the tune is still ok ... muppets everywhere I tell ya lol
  10. What a busy few days again but what an excellent wrap up for George @fun001 and his build with me and the big trip involved all the way from NSW to SA and back again ! The car has made it's way out to the Drag strip to put the finishing touch on the journey that was and nothing more satisfying than punching out what the Dyno sheet shows it can do ! Casting our minds back a few weeks I took the car from stock (240 odd rwkw to a reasonably modified 390rwkw (best of) ) and today George managed to pedal it to a best of 11.25 and a best of 128.78mph with what's considered a lazy 1.99 60ft. Car was set for racing how I suggested George went about it regarding Tyres,fuel levels,Air pressure,burnout method and shift points and all day it went deep into the 11's so consistently representing JD TUNING in the east absolutely stoked with the time and MPH and most of us know that for every 10th in the 60 equates to 2/10th in the deep end so one rock solid 1.75 60ft and there's a 10.99 in her and both very achievable targets. All said and done I believe the car has produced what it should for a genuine result and even though a larger portion of safety aspects were left in the tune due to this unique situation of George being so far away it's gone great heres some pictures from today ...
  11. 550rwkw on E85 through 80lb junkers and only 13.6afrs haha better than I thought what muppet last tuned that ?
  12. Should be the goods now @sixman
  13. Who was tune shop number 1 ?
  14. Needs moar chicken dance Trent not surprised here, also not surprised they used a Mk1 in the pictures the bellends lol http://www.msn.com/en-au/motoring/news/australias-greatest-ute-as-decided-by-you/ar-BBCKbqy?ocid=NL_ENAU_M1407_OM2-PID86502
  15. Nice graph the 280kw one
  16. Yours is going to be an animal leaving the line from the 2step and with the traction control and sequential shifting can't wait to see it in action
  17. Ok peoples I need a slimline or small sound solution but with what I hope can be half ok sound quality Now iam no audio wizz and I probably couldn't tell the difference between a 5k set up and a 20k set up but iam finely tuned enough to know when something is "tinny" bland or just crap.... I've listened to a BOSE satellite set up and it wasn't bad I mean I could live with it no worries,whereas some people would choke as the name BOSE and rightly so if your in the know What I need is something like a soundbar with a sub or a satellite style pack for general music and the odd movie It would get used approximately once a month type thing so I don't want to really spend ridiculous money on something I'll never appreciate What have people got and what's it like ? Clearly haven't asked about big component systems with big speakers for a reason so just want to know about these smaller out of the way type thingos K go
  18. Not on the T it's done all the hard work and you just plug in the road speed vs rpm and it plots the power generation for you based off of those factors and it can dance between a bunch of maps for more or less aggressive combinations and the ecu cuts parameters based on delivery of power or slip
  19. Wouldn't mind flying the 747 though lol ebay sniper bid coming up
  20. Traction control on the elite 2500T is a neat set up and all the hard work is done just dial it in
  21. How short do you think I am haha I'm fairly sure I'm in the 6ft category
  22. Decided I'm going all out on a flight simulator http://www.ebay.com/itm/Boeing-747-400-Flight-Deck-Solutions-Fixed-Base-Simulator-/292076600476?hash=item44011f3c9c:g:NiYAAOSw2gxY1XM~&vxp=mtr
  23. Keep going with this thread Brad as it's a top quality build and any photos you can be bothered uploading will be worth putting back into their pages any news on the T56 sequential shifter?
  24. Looks like a bloody ghetto there #surprisednotsurprised
