  1. New Build - Home Renovations - Gardens - Garages & Sheds.

    I would love someone to come and empty my complete house. Then I get all new stuff
  2. New Build - Home Renovations - Gardens - Garages & Sheds.

    That is what everyone has said. I must be the only person in Australia who doesn't drink

    While I’m at it, this is the new BBQ area I’ve almost finished..
  4. New Build - Home Renovations - Gardens - Garages & Sheds.

    It is just green couch, it gets mowed almost every day, and I have a concoction of different fertilizers and weeders that I use on it. My water bill is also quite impressive haha in winter I oversow it with Rye grass seed, as it thrives in the winter, and then spray it out again come spring.

    My lawn is easily my favorite thing in life...
  6. 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!

    Some progress on the new fuel system I am installing...
  9. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. Loose Flywheel Bolts

    What sort of damage is being done to the clutch?
  14. 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.
