  1. Well we did a thing today.... 700rwkw Club ! Alex has been plugging away with taking his already mental 627rwkw Ute from last tune and has decided to go Full send on turning it into a Drag ute now.

  2. Did some tuning today. Apparently gapping the plugs did the trick cos straight away it ran up 605awkw with no tune changes. I frigged around with fuel and boost and this and that, and managed 685awkw at 39.5psi. I brought it in gently as the trans wasn't happy to take much more than 30psi on the hit. There was some trans truncation going on at that power level on the road, so I've turned it back down to about 640awkw for now.

  5. It’s been full tilt lately but plenty of great stuff happening and I’ll keep it to a short update ! Had @david g6eturbo back in for the next level of mods despite only just finishing up his 3rd round with me less than a few months ago. Can’t argue with the man as it was time to take the next step..... The E85 step ! So with the previous tune dialled in at 395rwkw on 98 fuel it was time for some more top quality parts to prevent the next in line of potential breakage and as we all know... Do it once and do it right So I’ve installed the following on top of an al

  6. So want to provide a bit of an update. This is gonna be long winded boys. sorry in advance As in previous posts, I got a new MB, CPU, RAM and GPU. This is the steps to work out I was missing stuff. Opened the GPU box first. I was bloody surprised by the size of this guy As you can see below, I was going to have issues getting this bad boy in the case. The reservoir was in the way. So I decided to wait until I had all the parts. I removed the back plate from the old machine. Removed the original back plating from the new m

  7. Hi to all who follow this thread. Firstly, thanks to all the previous thoughts and postings from people on this Forum that allowed me to find someone that I was willing to let work on my car as I am no longer physically capable. We dropped the car off at the agreed time and it was ready to pick up at the agreed time. Aaron is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I could have spoken with him for ages but I didn't want to be disrespectful and take up too much of his time. The install of the Shockworks seems to have been done very well. Finding someone that knew how to insta

  9. Welded another O2 bung into the dump this afternoon. Now I have a wideband and the stock narrowband in place. The trans is getting less happy by the day so that's the next thing I'm gunna have a crack at. Also had a 3 inch alloy bend arrive in the post but I probably should have bought a 2.5 inch. Oh well I guess I can go with the 3 inch for the turbo outlet.

  10. Well today didn't go to plan... Put it on the hoist this morning, had to tighten a few exhaust bolts. Found that the sump is leaking again.. but everything else seems ok. Kept blowing intercooler piping off on the dyno. Finally got a few solid runs in and the dyno reinforced the fact my turbo is too small. But oh well, still did pretty well. 385rwkw and 1275nm of torque Sent from my SM-A908B using Tapatalk

Finally the custom made cabinets and the lights arrived and it has transformed the space and j@ only hates it 40% instead of 120% so I am taking that as a huge win! 🤣 I will photo in stages: Stage 1: The dreaded pink tile Stage 2: Grouted and looking better. Stage 3: Sinks, Tap wear, basins and lights Stage 4: Custom Cabinets Stage 5: M

  14. You could try pressure testing the piping between the turbo outlet and the throttle body . You can diy a test kit with some PVC pipe end caps and installing a tyre valve in one - then hook up a compressor and see if it holds pressure. I found I had a couple of spots that looked and felt ok but actually leaked slightly. Hopefully the tuner has already tested this properly and not just had a quick glance. If you disconnect the wastegate line you should boost to the moon. Maybe try this first (but be ready to jump off the throttle before you go sky high) if you make heaps of boost this way you k

Then get called back to site because I have concrete issues, relating to the fall of the new driveway and a burst pipe... but all sorted One driveway done!!! exposed ag... looks the goods!

  16. It’s a No brainer @Romulus constant WOT shifts with big power no 6R80 / ZF will last and that’s from Rob @ Monsta Torque who was going to do a big build for alex. He was just honest about what was going to be the outcome, Yes it can do it, yes it would require frequent pull down style freshen ups to last but Alex is really looking for more constant reliability as this ute is just a race vehicle now Yeh @Tom Tucker 3800 converter but we were seeing every bit of 4000rpm against the roller. Old school converters do this well and that means we were making near on peak power off the co

  17. Let's just say its not a wise idea to drive around the airport attempting 0-100 timing runs haha but if you must know, my best time was 5.8 seconds scrambling for what ever traction possible. The car went closer to 5.0 when it had 280rwkw with practically no wheel spin. Officer said he 'observed a rapid rate of acceleration' so I will take that as a thumbs up from him.

  20. Hahaha I guess it’s dependant on era, styling and taste. these same tiles have featured at least three times on either the block or equivalent shows and a few more in a lavender colour also. It was so funny because we were renovating my Nonno’s bathroom only 12 months ago laughing about his purple toilet, shower and bath! 🤣 (I’ll post pics below) I decided to make such a bold choice because the pattern is very adaptable and easily sprayed white or Grey and then becomes on trend again, but for now, I LOVE the pink and it goes perfectly with my pink bed

  24. I blew second in a t56, though I did dump the clutch pretty damn hard. Picked up a na tr6060 from an actual wrecker for $1500. It's handling 3rd and 4th abuse pretty well so far.

  27. Haha never trust a workshop manual. Kluger manual reckoned the entire rear end had to come out to drop the fuel tank. Looked unnecessary to me. Couldn't quite get the heat shield out or access the rear bolts on the tank straps. But made a nice slide for the tank [emoji16] Tank out, cleaned and back in with new filter. Fuel trims back to normal.

  33. I've got a custom 4 inch exhaust, hand made from the turbo back. There aren't O2 bungs unless I put them there. It's working pretty good now that both sensors are in there. Meh the scoop hole looks like a robot pussy that has done the rounds on a Saturday night.

  36. Emptied the bong water out of the catch can today. Fitted the alloy header tank. Fixed my windscreen washer pump seal. I fixed the fuel a bit on the dyno last night and it ran up 602awkw on 32psi at the tip. Went to launch it today and the farken gfb recirc valve fell apart. I found the spring and plunger on the side of the road and the top was still attached to the vac hose. Hopefully that's the end of sh*t falling off or breaking for a while

  37. I know I'm reviving an old thread here but having just replaced my CAT600 bushes with the IMS kit, I thought I'd share my thoughts on both setups. The CAT600 setup with Nolethane bush served my well in my Kenne Bell supercharged XR8 for about 6 years and 50,000 k's with daily driving and the occasional thrashing. There was increased NHV as was to be expected from such a stiff type bush, but it was not unacceptable. Recently the CAT bushes had enough and thrashed out so I replaced them with an IMS diff hat kit with the Superpro bushes and I was very surprised how much qu

  38. Yeah nah I don't wanna delete the header tank. They are useful Yeah fark knows what I'm gonna do for the scoop. Probably drive around like a hobo for a while then maybe get jiggy with some sheet metal. Dunno and it's too hot to work it out for now! In other news my arse has taken a beating this week. First gastro out the arse then a $400 e85 bill over the past 9 days. I'll be back on the dyno this weekend to sort out a 98 tune but might have a crack at 700awkw. We'll see how it goes.

  41. The ZF is different between NA, turbo and V8. V8 has a different bellhousing so can't use that, turbo has more clutch packs than the na ones. ZF can be built but can be costly, th400 or powerglide can be a good option but can be just as much as getting a ZF built. As far as I know, the column shift only suits the 4 speed BTR transmission. NA engine can be used to build an engine Sent from my SM-A908B using Tapatalk

  44. I've got coil plugs coming with the rocker cover.I'm not sure if the pins are the same but it'll be worth a look. That'll be next weekend's job. I'm putting the car on the dyno tomorrow to see how far I can take it. I'm not sure how much it'll make but it'll be something

  45. My gold ute has a highmount (jpipe) and I put an ally overflow on after org one melted. Ally one got to hot to touch. Ended up coating it in heat reflecting tape and making a heat shield that also coated in tape. Heatsheild made biggest difference. Its only a finger gap from overflow, n around two to turbo, but was most effective. If it was a daily id put a turbo beanie on.

  46. So.. Fixed all the issues I've had, turns out the spark plugs were causing interference in the canbus system causing the pcm to lose communication with the abs module and lose it's speed data. Oh well. Changed the rocker cover to an FG one with FG coil swap too.

  47. I thought I might do an update on this regarding reliability. I've been happily daily driving for the last 5 & 1/2 years on a 500rwhp tune running the aquamist system. I've only touched the system once to upgrade the spray injectors to a larger size and to solder part of the circuit board to increase the flow. The latter was done by an electronics shop in accordance with the aquamist manual. It was quick and easy, the shop didn't even charge me but I wouldn't recommend doing it yourself as the solder point is 1-2mm with no room for error. To date, I've had one of the plastic
