  1. Had old mate Dave back in after we went out roll racing a few events back and the stock ZF finally gave up and started slipping on the 3-4 shift to a point where we knew it was buggered. Not that the 165,000km box had an easy life but pushing mid 500’s through it definitely didn’t help haha. So Dave is a straight shooter and knows that the build of his car is definitely trying to maintain the quality over quantity factor and this leads me to finding him the best ZF available in the country and lending itself to be able to cope with the next few rounds of mods if he chooses too.

  2. Hey mate, thanks for sharing your research with us. Sounds like this green top is pretty impressive. What are your plans for the car, and what is your budget? I've heard 10s for $2k is pretty easy if you know what you're doing.

  5. So yerp, a couple of days ago I noticed a little thing in the tcm file that came with the trans, thought what I thought about it and using what I know, figured I would let it slide for a minute until the trans caught up with the program. And yerp, did what I thought was needed today and farken violin, trans started working properly. Helps when the right calibration is loaded into the trans ay?! Lucky yeah nah not luck but yeah fortunately I did my due diligence and had a handle on it all. In other news everything is working out fine and got another sh*tload of kays onto

  8. Driving around tuning boost control cos it's one of the many things that needs tuning and perfecting. Got 19psi of gate spring in it and when it's completely warmed up, the minimum boost in 3rd gear is 26psi. The wg duty log is like yeah yeah yeah yeah nah which is fine, but took some finding...cos I was trying to run 22psi but that didn't work. So I reckon I'm gonna try a 7 psi spring in the gate and see how low it'll actually go. This will for sure let me, and in turn you ohmos, know whether a 50mm turbosmart progate is up to the task.

  9. So yerp it looks like the water meth kit will be a few weeks out as they don't have some of the parts for it. The guy I spoke to was very helpful and said that he needed to do some research into the right jet sizes etc for my application, as my power level is "getting up there". They actually set up the kit on a flow bench and run it before sending it out, so you are guaranteed that each port will be getting the same amount. That has gotta be a huge step up from sending it in the cooler pipe pre tb and letting the manifold distribute it! Even if I can't run all the timing that e85

  11. Bleh fark me I'm stuffed. Everything is back together now and I've put 60km on it without drama. Cos I live in the sticks I've been driving up to 100kph then stopping and repeating. The trans is slowly coming good but needs plenty more driving before I can send it. In other news I made a legit oil return for the turbo rather than the "temporary" solution that I had in there. I also wrapped the dump with titanium exhaust wrap instead of the piece of sh*t "temporary" heat shield. So yerp, hooray it's sorted for now but fark all that working on the ground bs.

  12. Ok, run in tune done. 460rwkw on 15psi gate pressure. Sorry, no dyno sheet, it's just a run in to make sure everything is working as it should. Small issue they're working through is idle breaking down when it hits a certain temp. Sounds a lot like the problem another member was having with the cam phasers, and possibly a result of oil pressure related to clearances. We shall see Keen to see what it will make on 25psi+

  13. So yeah being a slacker and all I only pulled off the timing cover for a look. Fortunately the new timing chain guides are fine and the atomic m8 stud is unscathed too. Happy days! So onto the carnage...Seems like the outer oil pump gear let go. Pics cos pics...

  15. Far out man, there is no friggin room for a water meth tank. Despite that, I came up with this today, cut it out of a sheet with the ole angle grinder, half cut the bends and hand bent the bastard. It ain't finished yet obviously and is just sitting in there so not quite level in the first pic, but the rest should be a fairly simple process. I did a quick calculation and it has a 10.94L capacity.

  17. Well some dollars later and I have a water meth kit and a 6 port bundle on the way. I've got a spare lower half manifold here so I can get the port kit installed before I take the car apart. I'll head out tomorrow and get some sheet metal to make a custom tank for it, so I can make it fit nicely somewhere. Apart from that there ain't much else going on. I changed my cam timing a couple of times over the past couple of days for something to do. It's funny how much difference it makes to spool time and low end power etc. I'll leave it with quick spool and lower rpm potential for stre

  18. Its may actually be a phaser then. If it doesn’t solve the issue then you wont have many options left other then locking the VCT to a fixed position. I don’t see it as masking the problem, it is what it is. Modified cars!

  19. Took the car roll racing, 700kms in 12 hours and that included 2.5 hours on the track. It really is great these cars, belt into on a track then drive 330km at midnight no questions asked in comfort, style, and reliability! Lost a few races, won a few and that was good, however I need to leakdown test this motor as it used the entire "ok" section of the dipstick on that trip unsure where though, as people who were behind me when I was getting up it said they could smell e85 but it wasn't blowing smoke... it does blow some on the first take off of the day.. that's why valve stem seal

  20. Hey mate the details and pics are in the thread here if you wanna scroll back and find it. Basically I put 2x 525 pumps in the stock pot, I ran individual wiring and relays to each pump that share a 50A fuse so if the fuse goes both pumps stop, I modded the stock rail to feed from each end and return from the middle via a fpr2000, from the reg I ran 10mm fuel hose to a bulkhead fitting to the top of the tank. The pumps are connected in the pot and feed the stock system just past the stock quick connect where it goes into a Y again to split to each end of the rail. It fi

  21. Without the torque reduction and torque management controls in place the trans wouldn't last 10 WOT shifts no matter what hardware. The torque reduction happens in 200-300ms from memory, hardly enough to slow the car down over the 1/4 by any significant means.

  24. I already lifted it out the boot of the car, that's enough for me. Turns out they don't weight very much anyway, about 90kg with the converter in it. Well I spose I'll get cracking. I've got some tuning to do on the weekend, so I'll get the trans in tomorrow or maybe this evening if I'm feeling hectic.

  25. Look…. It’s the things that aren’t said that add to the cost and these are the things that separate the big dollar builds with not only a Warranty but results… Warranty’s are one thing, getting the box in and out, shipping back and forth, oils, filters, labour hours are all non warranted and start to stack up on the 4th time it’s been in and out across the country for “Repair” Been, seen, done the RVO thing more than once and all I can say is do “Everything” He says to maintain the warranty as you’ll need the fall back… use his tune and try not laugh too hard at it but if you devi

  28. Yeah you do get great economy with E85 on the highway and decent economy with gentle driving, as for the most part the O2 sensor is controlling the fueling. The difference will be when it's on power and using a different part of the tune to control the fuel. You'll also find that a car will use a sh*tload more fuel at WOT if it has a couple of hundred more rwkw. Hopefully I will be at the bend this time around but gotta wait and see.

  29. 100% Guaranteed ! Cheetttt Nath, that’s pretty epic stuff man but I know what you’re up for as a few customers over the years have done the ol limmy bash and blown gear sets which in turn smashes everything and pumps metal fragments everywhere. Dats a engine out Jobby and a few parts to rectify indeed !

  32. I'd be keen to stick a t4 housing on the back of my g2gtx3582r and send it for a six on my current setup. Given that I'd be able to completely max out the turbo, it'd be interesting to see where it ends up. Not internal gate but still in the same ballpark of turbos.

  37. So why would a big capacity transmission react like a factory built one ? If a factory built transmission is tuned for maximum comfort and service with limited upper HP capacity life why would we implement them same characteristics in a big HP transmission ? Torque reduction on the falcon can be implemented in many ways, would the factory way be the best knowing what we know ? “taking a nap” between shifts doesn’t lend itself to being fast does it ?

  42. Haha ok. You don't have to remove the sump. There are 4 little bolts underneath that you undo and if the rest is undone from the front, including the idler pulley cos that holds the timing cover on too, you can gently lever the timing cover forward and it'll come off. This is assuming you've already got the rocker cover off

  45. I believe it’s the cam caps, check to see if there’s scoring. If they’re not on correctly and in order they’ll ruin your day. I’ve spent a further 8.9k diving deep into this. So I bought an NA head and changing over the exhaust valves, springs, with new headstuds and then chucking it on. But waiting on parts to arrive. I’m not taking anything from my Turbo head and not using the same headstuds. I’ve changed absolutely everything lol. Except the head. I believe I’ll be able to unlock the timing and this issue will be fixed, but won’t know until the head is completed.
