  1. Diagnosing rough idle

    I would have to dig around for it but I believe there was a firmware update for BA's back in the day. The VCT & soliniods could get a little gummy pushing the timing out so I think they programmed in a purge once the engine started to prevent them sticking? I think that was something like the story anyway, I stand to be corrected on that. The connectors on the VCT are also brittle as hell so they may be broken & shorting a bit. As for the rich/lean? Bad o2, vac leak, intake gasket? But if a service cleared them I would focus on the VCT issue and check back re the tune
  2. Manual Ute Traction

  3. Does a stainless system have any performance advantages compared to a sh*t steel one? unlikely. Maybe 2hp on the bum dyno? maybe? If I can't see it & it doesn't effect performance I don't care all that much. #canofwormsopened
  4. They have been talking about the exhaust material and how mild steel likes to rust, but it's not that bad. Plot twist, the rest of that van will rust away to nothing before that exhaust ever will
  5. Manual Ute Traction

    Looks hot
  6. Haltech Falcon plug & play discussing thread

    Yeah na, maybe if I'd had the box & motor done? and I wanted flex fuel? maybe?
  7. Haltech Falcon plug & play discussing thread

    This is all true, but I can't see why the sub $1000 xcal isn't up to the job. I don't think a Haltech unit would make me happier with the tune I've now got. And maybe it would be good to be able to tune myself? but I trust my tuner did a great job and if I were to try myself it would probably be a fairly big backwards step. Is there a "killer app" this unit has that isn't already on the market? I just can't place this thing in the market.
  8. Auto Window Down On Ute

    Maybe a optional extra with one of the premium packs?
  9. Haltech Falcon plug & play discussing thread

    Definitely not these guys. Which is a large part of the market we're talking about
  10. Haltech Falcon plug & play discussing thread

    That's still a large price difference for that ability. Plus you need to buy the flex kit on top of that too.
  11. Auto Window Down On Ute

    This. Also, my ute has auto down from factory...?
  12. G6ET knocking

    Filter done up tight? little bit of air getting in and oil coming out? lower oil pressure? Cause a knock Just thinking of the basics here.
  13. Fg falcon idling problem

    Just after the car has been started it fluctuates?
  14. Haltech Falcon plug & play discussing thread

    Yeah basically this. I can justify the $1000 + maybe? $1000 cost for a very reputable tuner to do the job. For upwards of 3, plus I still need to take it to get the tune done at cost, not to mention the fact if I can't plug it straight in with a base map that just works (which won't always be the case for what some builds will be; that starts to get expensive. But will reserve final judgement on what the reviews are and the actual price when released.
