    So after having a moment in life where I thought about taking my self back to tafe to " gain knowledge " and better my self I have joined a dyno and basic tuning course on wednesday nights, puerly to better my skill base and gain more respect for tuning. So as it stands last night was a blast ran over some safety stuff and got into it, we are using a mainline 500 chassis dyno and a mainline proflow engine dyno all latest and greatest gear First up we ran through the screens/display on the monitors and went through different pages keeping note where to fill out info and make each run correct data wise for future referance, fair bit to remember but iam sure ill pick it up more and more Intresting fact I didnt think was a mainline feature was ramp rates and the direct effect it can have on a run, honestly thought this was a D/D thing First car up was a toyota corolla completely set up with EGT probes close to the head, and all the normal sensors connected as normal ( no obd2 ) Had a few runs looking at what to expect at idle and as temp rises, and the relation of the results and heat , then we started playing with a few timing marks and the effects of retarding timing and the way the egt's sky rocket with small ajustments ( crazy stuff imho ) and also the loss of power/torque readings After we did a bit of theory we went to look at the engine dyno and the engines avaliable to play with, set up and real time tune. First off the batt is a GEN 3 with cam, hedders, intake using a autronic sm4 with Kalmaker software ( 350fwkw ) Also a red 202, boss 5.4,ecotech 3.8,4age, and some others . Next week we will look at the flow bench and are aloud to bring in anything we want flow tested and some basics on CNC porting effects etc etc, So far fairly stoked with whats happening and the fact we will be tuning cars with ecu's not just dizzys.tafe have been supplied a large range of cars including a 3.5 ralliart magna on NOS with ajustable shot and a VQ stato with 5.0, 5.7 vx wagon and the rolla and any car we want to bring along The lecutrer has done over 6000 runs with not one poped donk so far so I feel its my right to bugger that right up for him with my car lol Pourpose of this thread is to share my experiance and a bit of q and a with people who may know about tuning as HP TUNERS is avaliable for use aswell and I can see myself buying this softwear to eventually play around with Good times a comming boys !

    hell yeah, can't wait signed up to a business plan, expecting at least 50mbit..... if I don't get 50mbit it's tow ball attached to the streets telephone wire time........................................................I'd get in so much trouble, funny that when NBNCo is allowed to do whatever the F they want. slightly worried cause all the streets wiring is direct buried so if they had to replace it they'd have to conduit it. (ill just clarify that im obviously joking about ripping the streets telephone wire out)

    Not today, but got some new tyres for the car Old tyres (somebody may have turned the last of the tread on these to smoke ) Had to pick the belts out from my suspension afterwards haha New ones Michelin PilotSport4 235/45ZR17 97Y. ^^ these tyres go absolutely great in the dry. Tons of grip and give you plenty of warning before understeer occurs. And they are absolutely epic in the rain, too YLD127 and EvilDaifu couldn't understand how I was able to drive in the wet with these. Epic tyres. Also, replaced the front hubs on the car today details here -> http://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/topic/89016-photo-essay-babf-front-bearing-hub-replacement/?do=findComment&comment=1647817
