  1. Thanks Camo it's definitely a slow process but we got there not really keif as it's still effectively a smaller turbo so LTRS/hr isn't as per a big turbo, efficiency range is probably the best down low as it was running out of puff uptop as you can see but that's indicative of the small frame/spec turbo
  2. 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 !
  3. Well here's the results ! old 348rwkw/466.2hp @ 20 psi new 383rwkw/514.8hp @ 21 psi big ol team effort but reports are the customer is wrapt with it as it's a totally different car. The owner can't believe how well it idles,drives and sounds it's also gainded the use of his A/C as previously it didn't work ( that would suck for the climate up there ) its an unusual list of mods including a std FG turbo but with a wheel upgrade to 63mm a external gate with a Turbosmart 45mm to screamer with an Eboost 2 with a tach driver connected bit of a donkey brand cooler but did have some good parts in the mix also it's about as good as we can get it doing the remote tuning but it's a decent graph and the data logs stack up where I want them so that's a job done
  4. They do the snowies 1000 in NSW and that's a good event also
  5. Yeh of course buddy just send me a PM
  6. Be careful buying 2nd injectors Nathan always factor in cleaning and flow testing to know exactly what you've got
  7. Hey nathan Genuine Injector Dynamics are lazer etched on the collar with their logo and "Injector Dynamics" and they will look like this
  8. Trying something new today and that's helping my good mate Anthony out as he's regularly up in the N.T tuning drift cars for the NT circuit and one of his customers has a FG G6ET that's been to every workshop in the top end ( could only be a few up there ) and it's apparently just not right in nearly every regard. so from down in SA it's already got it's first few tunes in it and it's looking good as she's purring like a kitten and trimming sub 3% on LTFT on E85 so hopefully between the two of us we can make a customer a happy camper and bring some life to the beast best results so far for its previous tuner is 348rwkw on 20psi #remotetuninglife
  9. That's an enjoyable article indeed
  10. What two bit town are you in lol ?
  11. Bloody good price for an opt 5
  12. I do not have red hair hahaha
  13. Thanks Luis your thoughts definitely carry some serious weight as you have been there done that a few times and what can we say you've been here since nearly day dot ! looking forward to catching up with you buddy
  14. Oh geez guys I'm feeling the love #NOSOULTUNING4LYF
  15. Thanks for the kind words guys and always here to help the forum members as much as I can also don't mind taking stock ute's and turning them into 400kw beasts to, very enjoyable
  16. Even so it takes a pretty care free operator to see nearly 14.0 mid way in and pinned to the floor, wonder what he was looking at if not the AFR metre
  17. I have the WinMax W1's in the fronts of my VF R8 and PmuNs400's in the rears as Ralphy said PMU / Endthread
  18. Hummm Dion is a decent tuner so wonder if there was fuel supply issues even then love it how your current tuner stayed on the loud pedal to complete the run even as lean as it was early on the run
  19. Whooooow that's lean as a mofo who tuned that ?
  20. Yes trent not really even the slightest bit interested Adam,The mustang just really isn't something I'm into especially a 4 cylinder one the whole vehicle is a bit average imho
  21. Fhurck yes bitchez 4 Day ARNIE movie fest on Foxtel all movies back to back from the man himself slow start but seen two last night Kindergarten Cop,True Lies then fell asleep lol now this morning Eraser,End of Days and after that collateral damage going to put a dent in the weekly screen time budget that's for sure hahaha
  22. Had a few electrical issues with the car and a set back of a physical element and with those being taken care of the car is now packing some Atomic 4.5 cams with vct lockouts and now a precision turbo so it's feeling like one step forward but two steps back but we will get there and it will come out and set a decent record no questions big builds aren't for the feint hearted !!!
  23. Hey Pixy I have to ask ..... we're going through the process of picking a builder for the big project ahead and in no way in hell will we be picking someone who doesn't have amazing reputation and results with latest refferals of this. Yes I'm in the building industry but even blind freddy can spot a well built display home vs an average one and this is only the start of the screening process, so who did you use to build the home of your dreams and why as everything I've seen go into your build has been very questionable... where did this all come unstuck ???? I mean why did you pay this company vs the others ???
