  1. Had Mark back in and this time it was to upgrade his single tune HPtuners protocol to the latest PCMtech MFT so he can utilise the flexibility of having multiple boost level maps and easy switching between 98 octane fuel and E85 all via the Cruise control switching mechanism on the steering wheel. Unfortunately the VCM NGauge device is now redundant and unavailable to buy any more so despite the easy use of a physical gauge there was no problems bringing this latest technology to a more mature crowd Anyways same mods that comes in my stage 4 package a delivered in the u

  2. Here's the graph. I had to run it in 3rd to get a number as I was hitting a speed limiter in 4th and was too tardled to work out how to remove it. I disabled it in the vid block, changed it in the tune as well and zeroed out the ETC cut. Still didn't work but oh well. Also don't have the boost control dialled in so it's a bit wavy. Today was a fuel/sd map tuning day

  4. All farken righty then... Cams Vernier gears Finished porting the head and the exhaust gasket. I didn't go all out and cut down the exhaust guides cos I cbf. You can see where the previous gasket was pushing water when the boost was wound up.

  5. A few members have shown some interest in one of my other projects and Have asked me to post some pics of it's progress. Now, I know that it's not a Ford. But I hope that you appreciate it anyway. Here goes.. I purchased this tired old girl just in December 2019. I'd had during me 20's and unfortunately it was stolen and burnt out. I really loved the car and I decided to bring this old girl back to life.. The car was purchased for Emerald in Queensland. She was really rough, but she was all there. Engine and box were in an unknown condi

  6. As you can see in the pic above, I still had some rust issues to sort. Fortunately, it was a country car and it only required a few minor repairs. The battery tray was unpicked and a good unit installed and repainted. Minor rust repairs were made to the lower rear screen, boot rubber lip and spare wheel well. We also stripped and primed the roof while we were there. In my spare time I started to prep the suspension components. As with all builds, ever bush joint and bearing has been replaced in the car. All were blasted, primed and pre

  7. Did driving, did tuning, got the fuel mostly flat to redline, injdc went from about 50% to 80% at roughly the same boost level and afr. Looks like those cams and head are flowing a bit more now! Also at a 110kph cruise it's using about 11L/100km now instead of about 10L/100km from before. Not the worst fuel economy hit hey?! Still more tuning to do but I'll save that for the dyno.

  8. Got it together and after a bit of tuning to get it to idle and start halfway properly I went for a drive. Farken thing is a bit ridiculous now that is has the extra legs, even though it's only on 23psi and 98 octane. I did a bit of logging and it easily pulls to 7 grand. I accidentally went 7150rpm but don't tell anyone! It seems like it would keep going but I guess the dyno will reveal if and when it falls over. Anyhow here is a quick video of it idling.

  9. No work tomorrow so full steam ahead for assembly. All that's left is the intake manifold support brackets on the passenger side then the hotside, boost piping, coolant recovery tank, catch can and the coil cover with the trans cooler mounted on top. I've fully vbanded the exhaust and dump etc and all that is needed there is the 2 piece dump to be fitted up. The exhaust is still fitted and all that's needed there is the section that goes over the rear cradle needs a 1/2 inch stick to be stuck between it and the cradle to give it clearance when the front vband is tightened.

  11. I spose that is probably the case before it is on boost. The main thing to adjust was when the timing drops, due to the change of when it reaches full boost and peak torque. Because it reaches peak torque later, I needed to make it all happen later, which it is now. Still only got 10 to 11 degrees in it up top, but the transition is where it needs to be for the most part. I'll dial it in on the dyno when I get a chance. I gotta say it is much more thirsty when I drive it hard, compared to 400 and stock cams. Haha goes hard though

  14. Thank you for all for the kind words. It is appreciated. I'll try to keep this as interesting as possible. This build started as a complete restoration. Nothing was to be modified. At all!! As it come off the production line.. No if's, Not but's... To be honest, that theme kinda got a little lost on its journey. This is where to real story begins. Once on the rotisserie, I arranged top get the engine bay and undercarriage soda blasted. Expensive, but money well spent. the prep time saved here is phenomenal. Sunday the car was blasted.

  15. Finally had a chance to look at the car.. Turns out it was leaking from the big fuel pump o ring. Why exactly I am still not sure but maybe it just gave up but I'm certain the tank didnt have excess pressure. While it was out I swapped out the Walbro for the Pierburg and fitted it back up with a new o ring. Checked fuel pressure, looked good. I had to drain 20l from the tank by connecting a hose to the hard line from from the where the fuel filter bolts up, bridged the pump relay. Checked the serviceable filter while I had it off. Got the fuel back in which put me over 3/4 and on the road

  16. I didn't get a chance to try any second gear launches this weekend just gone (fun day for the Night Speed Drag Wars series I competed in) but was able to get some pretty consistent times. Managed 3 back to back 11.5**'s all at around 121.**MPH. Best was 11.515 @ 121.46MPH with 60' of 1.786. Fastest MPH on the day was 122.22. Feels like the stock 122k old suspension might be letting me down on the launch - although the wheelspin is what probably what saves my driveline haha Had the Mrs drive my XR6T while I drove her XR8 - side by side - epic fun watching your car cruise

  21. Got the e85 in the tank and some on the ground...oh well ya get that. Did road tuning for 10 minutes and got the 1000cc injectors dialled in. Still using 98 levels of timing to make sure my fuel tuning had a safety net if it went too lean, it was at 86% injdc by 4700rpm and 24.3psi boost with a 12.0 afr (petrol scale). The injectors went static at 5450rpm and 25.3psi with an 11.76 afr. By 5700rpm it was at 12.24 afr and climbing quickly, so I got out of it. I'm sure it'll make some power tomorrow when I put in the 2000cc injectors again and wind it up a bit.

  22. So installed the big 1400hp axles. And replaced all the suspension bushes in the rear. Learnt a lot doing it myself. Dropped the car off today to get the engine built. Will take a few months, but the progress continues. Will finally be able to stretch the G35-900.

  23. Fist day at the new job (Senior Project Manager) done and dusted. Working for government is awesome, I got to move organisation’s and keep all my long service and leave etc. Everyone seems amazing and we even have a team beer fridge 😂 Most excitingly I am finally in a position I was working toward for the last few years and I managed to get there without and engineering degree, based on my knowledge and achievements. Lets hope it continues to go well 😬 How is everyone else? Hey Keif, where’s Arronm been hiding?

  25. Dragged out my tarded drz and spent the arvo checking it over and getting an idea of what I need to get it going again. Usual stuff, battery, oil change, air filter clean, spark plug. Might just strip the carb and give it a quick clean considering its sat for a fair while and I also really need to make some sort of a baffle for the muffler as its way too loud and already scored me a date with the epa inspection station once before. One thing I forgot about was the last time I washed the bike the trail tech speedo took in some water and stuffed up the lcd screen so I will have to replace that

That little piggy went... wee wee wee... all the way home.... to Rabs House. 🥓 Well this morning all the boys wanted McDonald’s pancakes but I’m a tight arse so I went and cooked some from scratch with my famous recipe I googled. Turned out okay. Nice and fluffy 🤣🥰 Honourable mention to last night... nibbles platter, footy and beers... farrrrk I love my new house ❤️

  27. I put the old rocker cover on and ran the old girl. It runs nicer with the GTR coils... I can't wait to be the FG cover back and push it to the limit. With any luck, I'll move up a bracket or two. 😄

  29. Looked around for a decent used surge and didnt really find anything. Stuff missing, old pumps and hefty price tags so I decided to go new. Looked at the single 044 and thought for a little more I'll go with the single pierburg pump. Quality thing too bloody nice to hide under the car!

  31. Here is a review of some Dynomite Performance cams that show it making power for longer in the rev range with no spool penalty.

  32. Yes and yes. Just when you think about clicking the shifter at 6k, you let it go to 7k instead. The video doesn't really do justice to how it goes when it's already spooled and going for it, and I think it might have tagged the limiter here as it was a bit funny at the end. High stall is definitely on the cards and should be done with a built trans within a few months.

  33. Bleh long day. Added a bulkhead fitting to the tank and ran a 10mm fuel hose from the end of the steel return pipe. Fuel pressure dropped from 6.5 bar to just under 2 bar. Set it to 4 bar, welded a giant split in my newish muffler and hit the dyno. Did a couple of hours on the dyno to dial in the custom PCMTec sd fuel map. Ended up with 474awkw at 23psi on 98 octane. 10 degrees of timing for the interested. It needs work but it's getting there.

  34. Launch control is instantaneous. If you hold it down for half a second, it activates the launch/overboost for half a second. Quite literally hundreds of people are using it at the drag strip to build extra boost off the line or to add boost when half way down the strip. The multiple tunes are something you would activate before the run. Eg you select boost profile 1, do a run, find it spins until half track so you activate the next tune and do another run. You aren't going to be doing that one mid strip, but some people do use it to change tune whilst on the freeway or drivin

  35. The best use for multiple turns is boost by gear, low boost and high boost. We have customers set up boost by gear on 500kw cars with 4 port boost control to get the power down to 300kw so they can get traction in 1st gear on the street and slowly reel the boost in as the speed increases. You can couple that with flat shifting so you can pin a 500kw car in first through 4th without lifting on the street with street tyres and have it not put you into a wall. Makes for a very fast street car. Then you can go full Habib mode high boost to do 150kph power skids at power cruise. Low boost for when

  36. Been a bit lazy lately but the car is finally back on all 4 wheels. Got the radiator fitted and it's pushed the condenser forward slightly so my trans cooler had to be moved. I noticed Derale make a duel pass trans cooler, so I decided to make one myself and I'm in the middle of mounting it on the passenger side rear of the car. Might have it running by the weekend.

  37. Its a big cam all about peak power now, spool doesn't really matter its either on boost or not. Gonna have to get some boost into it on e85. v8 na builders always worry about rpm, turbo engine builders always worry about boost, the truth is somewhere in between. Boost is safer than timing to a point.

  44. Well we’ve just been doing some finishing touches... waiting on curtains and shutters and some furniture but we mounted the TVs on the weekend.... loving the living area and the built In cabinetry is now also. (don’t mind the alfresco which is a junk area) Completed bar... other than the holes in the ceiling which need patching. Bedroom cabinetry looking good also
