  1. NOT QIK - FG XR6T Manual Ute

    I have the engine out of it at the moment, making some changes and seeing how we go with some development. I will update this when it’s all back together

    3x 460s in a 5L surge, -6 lines to and from the tank and -8 lines to and from the fuel rail with an FPR2000. Should do the trick!
  3. NOT QIK - FG XR6T Manual Ute

    Some progress on the new fuel system I am installing...
  4. That won't help with detonation being that lean. Might be worthwhile chucking a bore scope down the plug holes and checking the pistons if it has been like that for a while?

    Looks sweet mate. I went for 295/55R15 on the rear and a 26x6 on the front. Wheels are JEGS SSR, and MT S/S tyres

    Got some new wheels on. Should definitely stick a bit better now.
  7. Loose Flywheel Bolts

    I was skeptical as I thought you could get nothing better than ARP, but 4 sets of ARP later and the 12.9s are holding on a lot better. I have broken one bolt but I don't think there is much I can do with the brinelling on the crank and the lack of surface to mount to. The crank will have to come out and be repaired at some stage but until then I'm happy pulling the box out every couple of months!
  8. Loose Flywheel Bolts

    What sort of damage is being done to the clutch?
  9. Loose Flywheel Bolts

    I have gone to a bit of a frankenstein setup but it seems to work ok. Ditched the ARP bolts and gone to 12.9 socket cap bolts with Atomic washers 3x 11mm dowels, welded to the flywheel. Bolts tightened to 90ft/lbs Made up a plate with 6 holes in it which fits over the bolts and then welded each of the bolts to the plate. Next crank I put in it, I will be looking at running 12 bolts.

    Yep and not one sign of it pushing water or doing anything it shouldn't do!

    Can you move it for me I have only just scraped in! Have always run the standard Ford one mate, that's what Colin, who built my engine has recommended, so I just popped another one of those on. I got confused with the head studs too, and they are in fact the 12mm Atomic studs, I wound them up to 120ft/lb, gradually from around 80, and they didn't show any sign of being overtightened. I think one day when I pull the engine out I might look at the 14.3 studs. Still the stage 2 as well lol, I will upgrade that sometime soon as well, but its coping fine in the cooler weather. I want more already, but moreso some more control over the fueling, so I am waiting to see what happens when Haltech release their plug and play unit.

    Fuel system currently is that pump I got off you in the tank with a PW Surge with 2x 460s. I am going to upgrade that to 3x 460s in a bigger surge tank in the coming weeks just for a bit more safety at sustained boost. We ended up at around 40psi.
  13. NOT QIK - FG XR6T Manual Ute

    Yeah it doesn't do much for a while! It is still nice to drive around off boost but when the boost ramps in everything happens in a hurry!
  14. NOT QIK - FG XR6T Manual Ute

    It was a long night with Clint, but we made some good power. Its definitely exciting when it comes on boost, I've never been in anything like it.
