  1. I should have said that it was with a stock fuel pressure as well.

    It's all pretty easy to work out if you know what things are doing and why they are doing them. The only thing you need to bench test and get 100% right is the dead times at various pressures which cant be done with guess work.

    I spose I can just swap the rears around and then I've got a whole nuther skid to do.

    Oopsie I may have overdone that skid I did...I went for a quick drive up the street and there is wire slapping the wheel well.
  5. Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    Well I pulled my finger out and ordered a girdle, arp main studs and some 28mm head stud washers. At least I can get started with that to measure some crap in the block and then go from there.
  6. My bosch 1000's were at 50% at 17.25psi/6100rpm on 98 with 0.8ish lambda. No idle issues running stoich on 98 and still had something left at 21psi on e85 (I didn't check how much though). That will give some idea about the necessity of having "1000cc" injectors. Haha I recommend that size cos they work on 98 and there's headroom for e85 but they are overkill for most cars.

    There is a funny entry in the breakpoint calculation that you did but the rest looks pretty good. I didn't bust out the calculator though, I just kinda eyeballed it.

    Haha you're probably right. Ask me in a couple of months when the rego runs out on the vn.
  9. The Off Topic Thread.

    Realistically all I have to do is pull a couple of things off the block and head, order parts and drop it off somewhere. I'm not missing driving my car though so yerrrr....2 weeks

    Woohoo Thursday!!! I had planned to make a start on my car at the start of this week but the dude who offered to sort out the machining is uncontactable. Lol bullet dodged? Anyway, now I have to find another shop and the pita is, is because I live in farken whoop whoop, it's likely that a fark load of driving will be involved to get it done. Ain't nobody got time for gallivanting about the countryside. I think I'll just put it off for "2 weeks".
  11. It'll be fine on e85 but would likely have low pw issues on 98. Not ideal but not the end of the world either. To clarify my 70% idc estimate, head over to the injector dynamics fuel flow calculator and see what you get when you plug in a 3 bar base fuel pressure, 0.78 lambda and 25 psi boost pressure. Generally you wouldn't choose an injector that big but there are reasons that you might do so, such as headroom or just having them lying around.
  12. You mean apart from the bigger turbo, external gate, custom larger than stock exhaust, trans cooler, aftermarket ecu, custom intank setup, twin feed fuel rail and running e85? Depending on fuel pressure, boost pressure, afr and rpm that we've seen stock motors do, the injectors could be up around 70%. I doubt they'll push the car there though. They might just be leaving some headroom for a built motor down the track. Haha mebbe that's just what they had lying around.
  13. What Made You Feel Good Today

    Haha yep they're hungry little buggers.
  14. What Made You Feel Good Today

    I know dem feels. This is my part of my freezer on shopping day and there is already a loaf and a half out and 5 litres of milk in the fridge. This will last us about two weeks give or take.

    Something something graphics cards.
  16. Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    When do you take delivery of yours? I picked mine up cos #tightarse but that backfired cos the first one was damaged so I had to drive back down there to swap it over.
  17. Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    Mine earns it's keep, that's for sure. Ain't nobody got time for hand washing 6 people's worth of dishes!
  18. Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    If you haven't had one before you'll wonder why you didn't get one years ago. It's been my experience that the $4 coles powder works as good as anything else and using a finishing liquid is a waste of money too.
  19. Whats On The Menu

    I'm in a home cooking/saving money mindset cos #kids. A night out with just the wife would be awesome. Time to take up the babysitting offers
  20. Whats On The Menu

    wish ya the best though mate.
  21. Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    I'm not sure how cool this is but I bought a step counter/hr monitor this evening. The wife has one and her friend does too so I figured why not? It is just a cheapy. I also bought a Sunbeam SmartBake Custom 1.25KG Bread Maker as well. Not as cheap but considering we go through 4 loaves a week it should come in handy!
  22. Whats On The Menu

    I'm more of a "eat cos I gotta stay alive" kinda dude. I don't doubt the tastyness though! Edit: mebbee I'll leave the tribe at home lol.
  23. Whats On The Menu

    I just checked the menu and I think I'll stick to buying Paris Creek sides of beef. I've got too many people to feed lol
  24. Whats On The Menu

    Hey... you been banging for a few months and you're going out to dinner...when you gonna pop the question buddy?!!!
  25. The What's Pi$$Ing You Off Thread..anything Goes!

    That's farked. I'm in South Australia and it's much cheaper than that. The ford rego is nearly $800 a year though.
