  3. Well done Puff. The big shops charge big money to get up there and you did it at home pretty much. I have a turbo boner now so I am going to change the oil on mine right now ha.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Dial in the cams properly, get more wg spring and see how that goes. I've still gotta fit my fg rocker cover and coils so that will be a job for next weekend. The thing is an absolute animal now

  9. In other news, my cats are dickheads that clearly get fed too much. One of them caught a mouse and let it go, so I chucked the other cat at it and it caught the mouse, which then let it go into my room. Fortunately I had a beer in my hand which I caught the mouse with, so I then chucked the mouse...

  10. Some more tinkering... Dash rocked up and fitted, horn in, went through the birds nest of wiring behind the headlight to clean up the blinker wiring and fit the stock ones. Pulled out all my luggage to get an idea of what I want to fit to the bike when I start using it. The I turned my attention to the carb.. It was much worse than I thought. Pulled off the drain bolt and some nice green sludge had formed. Rest of the inside of the carb was lined with this stuff. I found over the years the best thing that works for this is foaming upper engine spray, cleans everything right up. So a good cle

  13. 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?

  14. 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

  15. You swap from the ZF to the 6R80 or the other way? If it's too the 6R80 I thought the 6R80 input shaft was supposed to be stronger? Not that im going to do it. I'm a long way off the power, ~400kw. But just curious. If it does go bang at some stage its something I'd look at. PS this thing is off chops. good work man!

  16. Yeah you might as well go the 6R80 especially since you are changing the convertor anyway. FYI I got pricing a while back from Dave Sheehy (CPV, blueboost here back in the day) and his prices were stage 3 - billet shaft box 600kw $4950 or stage 4 6r80 shaft 650kws $5950. $1k less or so for each of the lower stages (cryo shaft, standard shaft with extra clutches). Those are Nth Qld prices but I heard $4k for a full 6R80 build from an Andrew Grimes (met him through Facebook) in Melbourne or Adelaide? Those prices are half of what I've seen from some shops so It would be interesting to see your

  17. Yeah for all the talk I thought it would break straight away but here we are. It ain't happy now for sure, but a set of exedy clutches and a 3500 converter will get it sorted. It might not last forever but I don't expect trans clutches to last when it's turned up. I'll do the 6r80 input shaft etc when the rest gets done.

  18. I'm surprised it's still alive (the ZF). By all accounts with the Facebook heroes it should have died at stock power, milkshaked and broke the input shaft... Lol. Don't you just love strokers! In all honesty though I know you have mechanical sympathy and aren't a bafoon like Faceboobs morons but even I expected it to go poopy by now on any number of random drives, especially with the weight of old Terry. I don't feel so bad when I beat on mine when I drive it once every month! It's an impressive feat that's for sure

  21. Not so much for the ford stuff but the haltech and delco live tuning on the road, I tell her the afr needed and she does the rest. To be fair it's not that hard when you know how.

  22. I had a look through the logs just now and it reaches peak power at 5900rpm then falls over from there. I reckon the cam timing is affecting it a fair bit. From what I've found out recently, a zero zero cam gear setting is miles off what it should be. This will be fixed next weekend and retuned after. I still have the stock lower half of the intake manifold in there and I also have a venom 5 inch cat as well. Both of these could be holding it back a bit and all of this can be tested. I can make up a decat pipe fairly easily to see how much difference it makes.

  23. The progression is good Nathan, it’s always a shame that one gain costs a low loss but that’s the world we live in. It does seem that there’s a flow restriction maybe hence nearly 90 odd Kw drops off in the top end but could be a variety of things at play The aeroflow looks to be going well which is good

  24. Cheers, I did assemble the motor in my lounge room, but after I made about 420awkw the rest was done on the dyno. I reckon anyone could achieve what I've done with about 30k, if they did the work and tuning themselves. I did an oil and filter change too this morning before I tuned it, as it was definitely due! But yerp 953awhp ain't 1000awhp so gonna have to see what the turbo has left in it...

  25. So it turns out that the weird looking sh*t in the middle of the graphs before was the screamer pipe farking with the dyno, cos I shielded the computer today and it helped out a fair bit. This is the wg on full send the whole run, 100% duty from start to finish. I think there will be some low end gains to be had when I sort out the cam timing but this is where it's at for now. Here's the graph anyway...

  31. I think the restriction was in the hard plastic line quick connects. The hike is tiny and even though I drilled them out, it didn't drop enough pressure. Still using tuner nerd. It goes hard enough on 98 now that I'm happy with it. Haha ask me again after Saturday!

  32. Me likey cams, I think TBRE have a couple as well, not sure if they are off the shelf though, earlier boost and longer rpm. I think these engines were supposed to rev to (make power to) 6k but ford realised oh sh*t these are going to be a bit wild and smash their v8's.

  36. So more bad news. Went to move my car last night, started fine and head unit turned on fine. Then out of the blue it went black and won't turn back on... 🤦‍♂️ I really believe this is a pure coincidence, but damn what are the odds. I wanted to rule out the head unit being the issue but I can't now. I've contacted Kayhan via email twice and no response so far... Really hoping they pull through, I've always been the guy on FB and the forums to stick up for this company because I truly believe they have a good product. Hoping their customer service pulls through for me. War

  40. Nothing much exciting really. I added a bunch of timing to the middle of the rev range to smooth out the dyno graph. I also added a metric buttload before it comes on boost and although I haven't had it back on the dyno, the car is much more lively. It reaches full boost by 4 grand now on the road and revs to 7 so there is a decent range of power there. Having nearly 500 on 98 is cool enough by itself but it's enough power for the street so I'm happy. Heheheheh can't wait to see what it'll do on e85

  41. 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.

  42. 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.
