  1. Hey guys. Been such a long time since I've been on the forums. How is everyone? Last time I had any contact was ages ago!!! Smurfs still in action, well wasn't for 2 years as I was rebuilding bigger and better. Anyone in Sydney?

  2. If this thread single handily doesn’t show how much of a immature person Arronm is nothing would. Why even bring your useless B/S into general threads regarding general questions Arron ? Seriously no one gives two Chits and no one thinks your “so cool” Your an old man, fruck off and tell all your mates at the Pub how cool you are 😐 Since you’ve always had a crack at nearly every single persons mods/tune/Dyno sheet let’s have a look at your “Magical” witchcraft sheet....

  4. Well Results are in and what a great night out at Tailem Bend “The Bend” for Roll racing. Typical event of Drag style racing that incorporates a “Roll” start instead of the typical Christmas tree Launch of Drag racing. Side by side competitors take off together in a lead up area with the chance to get upto 40kmh ( or there a bouts ) and cross the start line ( together is the idea but some jump ahead ) which initiates the WOT aspect and race flat out together until crossing the finish line ( roughly a 1/4 mile ) This style event brings out all sorts of vehicles from Tuff street to f

  6. Had old mate @Box stock T. in for some repair work due to his factory Diff bolt giving up on a “roll on” power blast down the road and the ol big bang happens so this is a decent indicator that the diff bushes have worn due to the excess movement and additional stress on the shaft of the bolt. Out with the old, in with the new Bushes, control blade bushes all in the Whiteline black series and at the same time gave the diff a bit of a birthday with new CV input seals & “O” rings, new diff hat and Bolt, when everything is out I can’t help but degrease and power wash then paint.

From being the first person to teach me how to service my own turbo, to rescuing me every time I blew something up, to racing buddies at the track, to re building my drift car with me, to me being your dyno sidekick and watching you turn your passion into something to be so proud of... so many cars and so many greasy shed sessions later... it’s been an entire decade!

  9. For context, This forum is not only about cars for some of us. Some members have had relationships for over a decade now and are quite good friends. There have been threads about babies and family, homes being built, what beers people drink, what people are cooking for dinner... and so on. One of the joys about it is unlike social media, you can pick and choose what you want to see and, myself personally, as a relatively new builder embarking on my largest project to date, I like to soundboard off of some of the guys who’ve been there done that and it helps with add

  10. Got to the dyno today and it went pretty much as I expected. The exhaust showed to be a huge restriction but we all knew that anyway. The first run right off the bat showed 367awkw on 16psi and after a bit of fiddling it went 427awkw at 21psi. The wgdc was at 85% and briefly flicked to 100% a couple of times so didn't bother pushing it further. So yerp, zorst is needed and possibly a stiffer actuator but overall I'm pretty happy for now. Haha it's quite quick at 21psi but I reckon it'll get turned down until I do the zorst. Happy days

  12. A big thankyou to my mate Aaron at JD Tuning for all the help with my car. I can not say enough about the fantastic service. Not only has he walked me through every step with advice and buying parts, he has posted me his own tools, picked the car up twice from the transport company and now is storing the car free of charge until I can get there after Christmas. His work is outstanding and his passion and knowledge for cars is unrivalled. The drivers window switch broke only 2 days before it left the NT and I could not get parts, he actually took the switch from his own car to use while tuning

  13. Had Chris @rtslbd back in for a great round of mods focusing on Handling and braking this time and what better than my Bang for buck Brake & suspension package with the PmuNs400 upgrade pads for super low brake dust and obviously my Go-To DBA T3’s 4000 series all round to give that incredibly good bite when getting going in the Hills ! Suspension package is my Go-To KYB’s and SSL KINGS all round I took his Standard Height XR6T Mk2 ZF from the typical 370’s (mm) to the perfect height 350’s (mm) Hub to Eyebrow which pretty much more or less hits the SA legal limit heights But va

Sorry for the slow updates it’s been crazy town and I’ve got some more stuff to post but I’ll start with the most exciting one first Had Alex @boakesautomarine back on the rollers after a mammoth makeover on what was an already amazing set up and has gone for the next stage power and supporting mods wise. As you may remember it knocked out 517rwkw last time with the 84rs 1.21 now Alex has done an amazing job of fitting the following Aeroflow 7375 1200HP Turbocharger with 1.15 Vband housing New design 6 Boost Vband manifold New 60mm Turbosmart Gate to scre

  17. Coils are wired and the car starts and runs a lot better. I fixed the exhaust leak that we had at the turbo/dump pipe v band. I decided to change the exhaust housing to a 1.15 while I was at it. I also fitted the new billet thermostat housing and removed the header tank. It really opened up a lot of space... Only a fuel line leak to fix and she'll be ready to hit the dyno again...

  18. Big thanks to @JETURBO for sorting out a couple minor things with my car. Had a pretty bad battery leak which left a bit of a mess and my exhaust wasn't sitting quite right. Without hesitation he asked me to bring my car up, cleaned everything, brand new battery, new silicone joiner and clamps and got the exhaust sitting absolutely perfectly. He even quickly updated my tune for a smoother start up and replaced my JD Tuning stickers with ones that match my cars colour 😂. None of these issues were his fault at all but it's a testament to him that he just wants to make sure every sing

  19. Had Wayne back in but this time was a necessity vs choice as his factory turbo had the old “Death rumble” so it was on with making the choice of what to do next... Wayne has a reasonably well set up FG turbo sedan but despite it being his daily he does quite a few Track days especially since “The Bend” Motorsport park opened up in SA ... so with that in mind turbo selection needed to be close to what he was familiar with and going big power actually is never on his want list as most of us can appreciate more power doesn’t always equate to faster at the track. Sometimes more power

  30. Finally dropped the exhaust on the dyno today. With no tune changes it went from 350 to 385awkw and picked up nearly 3 seconds of spool time. That is probably more to do with having more wg preload, rather than the lack of back pressure. Also the wgdc dropped from 100% to 75%. I added a couple of pounds in the tune from 4500rpm onward for a total of about 22psi and it went 409awkw on 98 octane...from Ampol... I think it made 965nm torque which you can see in the graph below. I deliberately brought the boost in "slower" (in the tune) to take care of the driveline and thi

  33. With 400rwkw on the street you can't and still be quick. Boost by gear or a low boost tune will be faster on the street every time. I've set up boost by gear and flatshifting on my manual BF with ~380rwkw. I can pin the throttle from 1st to 4th without lifting and basically no wheel spin. Press of a button and I get full boost in all gears to do skids all day if I want.

I wasn't so thrilled with how the dash looked, tried some rejuvenation products which didn't really last and wasn't happy with the dash cover, just didn't sit right over the aftermarket gauges.. So I looked at some options, remembered I used vinyl paint to paint a motor bike seat a while back with decent results and yes, I used sand paper to line the front window... Heres my attempt at a dash.

  38. Hi All I Just thought I would post up my recent experience with Aaron from JD tuning in Adelaide. I don't often post in forums, but I feel strongly enough about my experience with JD tuning that I am happy to do so. I have been looking for a FG Mk 2 Ute for about 6 months, After a recent inter-company transfer where I transitioned from a FIFO role to a DIDO role my accountant instructed me to "buy a Ute". I have been into fords for a long time and had read allot of stuff about the legendary "Barra" engine that I thought I might as well buy a Ford FG XR6T Ute. I found a very low km F

After a full catalogue of performance parts the engine was put together by himself with help from me over the phone and came up really well. Onto the dyno and the wrecker ZF just couldn’t cope with the power the engine was making and with careful dat

I started cleaning up the stock xr seats in prep for selling. They were dirty also and hit with the same treatment. Nothing like 200k worth of body juice... Yum Last but not least.. The fpv seats!

  48. First of all I would like to thank JETURBO for fixing my car after another shonky workshop had nearly ruined it. A Shonky brothers workshop had told me that I was getting 301rwkw, but after I being less that satisfied took it to a mates dyno it came in at 270rwkw. I was pissed. The troubles continued: constant check engine lights, terrible economy, awful transmission tune and worst of all the car would accelerate without any throttle. After talking with shonky brothers they said that there was nothing wrong. I demanded that it was put back to stock..... I drove it out of the works
