  1. WhoooooHoooo ! Finally finished a pretty extensive build for old mate @Panda Eyes in the form of a BA turbo rebirthing lol and I’m excited to see it done and hopefully done well for a while to come…. Looooooooong Story shorten down is Scotty wanted to bring the old girl out of hibernation and spend a few coins on making her better than ever and obviously time and technology has moved forward so it was good to drag the beast into the current area of mods/Tuning. A long time ago she had around 360rwkw on a E85/98 mix using some Deka 60’s, Bosch 044 surge tank, big J

  3. Let us know how it goes!!! Im keen to get my hands on one of those machines. Well today I got in the cooking mood after working (from home)... Firstly decided to make Baklava but more the Arabic version... Firstly make up a syrup with honey, sugar, lime juice and vanilla. Then make the baklava filling, I stuffed it with pistachios and almonds, then make then and bake them Then made some kourabiethes (Greek almond biscuits)... the dots are almond. Then for dinner made a roast chicke

  4. Update on the sous vide beef cheeks! Letting them dry age for 24hrs wasn't enough time, but not the end of the world. They're getting slow cooked for over 8 hours anyways Seared all the cheeks to get that sweet maillard reaction happening (browning the meat). In the same pan I put in 2 cloves of garlic, 2 onions, 2 carrots, and some sticks of celery all diced. Let those cook for a bit to get some colour into them and then dumped just over a cup of red wine into the pan. I let that cook off for a bit while scraping all the fond off the bottom of the pan. I added some stoc

  6. Did a fresh gnocchi Ragu tonight... well all of today... Cooked it as per my own made up recipe... it included: - 2 whole chicken breasts - 1 large pork chop bone in - 1 piece of rump steak Cooked it over a period of about 4-5 hours while I was pottering around in the kitchen anyway. I ended up with nearly 3L of sauce I think and it’s 50% meat I’d say lol. Then I did a chewy triple chock brownie for j@a desert also. (and some vanilla cupcakes for the kids)

  8. Interesting arvo yesterday, got a nice sinkhole in my parking bay in the apartment complex. Left for work yesterday morning and heard a thud as I was driving out the parking bay, I look back to see a brick on the ground had sunk a bit. Thought it was odd, but not surprising seeing as it had literally been raining nearly every day for the last 2ish weeks. After work, went to pick up a mate and the mrs (and some booze of course). Had him around for dinner, he wanted to get out the house and hasn't seen our apartment yet. Anyway, not part of the story lol. I come back, rev

  9. Update: Got the GTX3576R from GCG and got it installed. Everything seemed to swap over ok but they couldn't quite clock the turbo to the exact same angle as the standard one so it was a bit difficult getting the top mount piping to connect, but got it on there. Ordered a turbo side intake and battery relocation kit but it hasn’t arrived so just running a pod filter on the turbo for now. Spool noise is so loud with the tiny pod. Booked in for a tune but just driving around and trying to keep off the boost. Which is proving very difficult.

  12. Just want to say a HUGE thankyou yet again to the absolute LEGEND@JETURBO for getting me out the sh*te and getting my beast back on the road. So a month or so ago my car all of a sudden developed a huge fuel leak, turns out one of the welds in my plazzy surge tank had cracked so had to get a tow from victor to pt adelaide! The next day I took it to my "trusty ol local mechanic" to fix it for me. Im not goin to go into how useless these cee u next tuesdays were so long story short they kept my car for 6 days, yes 6 days, for a 2 hour (their time frame) job just to take the surge tank out so th

  16. Tinting is a tough one, you might tint your headlights/taillights to darken them up, but you effect not only hi beams and/or low beams; you're darkening brake lights, reverse lights, indicators etc which becomes risky. My brother bought taillights that had been darkened using that spray paint tint stuff, covering all but the indicators. I know for sure that they are very illegal, you can hardly see the brake lights during the day when he brakes. Luckily he has a brake light on his djr spoiler or else you'd never know he's braking. Best to just assume its illegal and accept the

  20. My pleasure Dion ! It’s all part of the service @ JD TUNING ADELAIDE Or I’m just a bloke who understands how these types of situations can affect people and their stresses around when a car is off the road. Sometimes even the best parts can have issues but the top quality suppliers will always back their products and I’ll back my customers in any situation especially when I’ve recommended it as it’s the right thing to do Safe motoring buddy !

  27. Pretty much same story for me. Went out for dinner with the Mrs, had beef cheeks with red wine and it was absolutely amazing! I don't even like wine and there I was smashing down some sort of red wine whose name I couldn't even pronounce. Really keen to see how this turns out! Parents are coming round for dinner tomorrow. Will definitely take some snaps of the process to show you all how it turns out

  28. Anyone ever made beef cheeks before? Giving it a crack this week, any pointers and/or tips would be greatly appreciated 😅🤣 My plan so far, because I have no dutch oven or slow cooker at home yet I've covered the cheeks in healthy amounts of s&p and leaving to "dry age" (uncovered in the fridge for 24hrs or so). Following this recipe I discovered last night, browning the cheeks, making a sauce, sealing the cheeks with some sauce and sous vide-ing (is that even a word) for 9ish hours at 83C. Some thoughts on the cut so far, it smells extremely beefy! Way str

  31. Technically I am “essential” as government, but given we have an obligation to follow government advice we have been told to only work from home. I find it hard to get motivated. j@ is not essential, so he’s home... and therefore we can’t send the kids anywhere so they’re home too... Thank god we have a big house or else I think I would be motivated enough to dig a basement for them to all hang in.

  34. So yerp pulled the 6r80 down today. Nothing looks too rooted in it, not that I'm a seasoned trans builder or anything. All of the steels are in good condition and all of the shafts/gears etc look and feel alright too. I'll get to measuring later in the week to confirm stuff. The car that the trans came out of had a torque converter failure and had put some metal into the trans which is why I only paid $50 for it. I pulled the trans pump apart to have a look, as that will be where the metal starts it's journey into the trans. Sure enough the small inner gear has some damage and the

  35. Bought the replacement for the Kluger - 2015 Subaru Outback. Always had a soft spot for these, so nice to get one. Got the 3.6 engine for MOAR poweh, which means absolutely every available option as part of the package. Is fantastic to drive so far. Full dealer service history, near new Bridgestones and condition wise it is hard to tell it's not brand new. I'll probably fall out of love with it the first time I need to change spark plugs on a boxer engine...

  37. Been crazy busy lately but some projects aren’t finished yet, some had failures and some are going bigger and badder than ever before. That said Alex @boakesautomarine has decided that the previous best of 700rwkw wasn’t enough and wanted to up the limits more and why not hey. From last time we’ve swopped out the Atomic stage 2 cams ( almost identical to FG grind anyways ) to the highly regarded Kelford 218B Cams which has a lift into the 280’s which normally factory VCT would struggle with and require VCT lockouts/Locked cam sprockets but the Haltech P&P has a much stronger outp

  39. I have seen this once in all my time tuning Turbo falcons now that you’ve gone further into detail This was very unique and extremely frustrating to fix.... This was on a very early 2002 BA XT that was turbocharged with a full XR6T donor vehicle so it retained everything from a XR6T BA I have a unique way of fixing it but it 100% requires a Tune or Ford IDS factory tuning software, A Dyno and Time catch is it can come back out of nowhere but because I know how to fix it it’s no issues, the shortest period of time it was fixed was a full 18 mo
