  1. Grow a choice mullet for 20kw!
  2. How much did you pick that up for PE? The wife picked her brand new CX-5 (GT model?) up yesterday. I had no input but aren't happy. The only question I have is....can I modify it? 2.5lt turbo.
  3. For us in the North the hose is the best fix for a hot veranda. Typically a spray head, sprinkler or cheap 10mt hose sprinkler to save water. Just turn it on when you go outside on the hot days to stop that radiating heat and you'll thank me..... You could also pay for the reflective, sealing paint that some company's do but cost there I'm not sure of? It is magic though after buying my house with it applied to 20yr old tin. I could walk on the roof in summer without shoes (need sunnies or blinded!) and radiating heat from the back was cut down heaps (EG: Winter, 24°C ambient temp, zero cloud, painted gal tin roofing 25°C and unpainted 40°C). This was in an open shed I have off the side of my house. The difference in temp of colourbond I could measure also as I have trimdek sheets left but I'd go with the hose for now and a decent pedestal fan so you aren't blowing hot air around.
  4. Soudal would do the job with no bolts required.....
  5. Are these a short service life item or is he saying that in 5yrs you should have travelled 80-100k km's? Is that an issue being down 10psi? In your case it is but.....
  6. Wouldn't cause issues at high rpm and backlash? How do they break otherwise apart from going brittle like the oil cap for instance?
  7. I swear by the no cat rule and on my last setup with a 3.5inch xforce system I had a bolt in straight piece of SS pipe made for a 10min switcheroo just in case I got any flack from the poolice.....never have and probably never will. Current Terry has a punched stock cat. Not the nicest when connecting a trailer/boat but they never smelt nice imo! lol
  8. I pull wings off flies to make them walks.
  9. Going fishing tonight and tomorrow and hopefully we'll get out to the reef if it's flat enough. Will fish Hinchinbrook Island or the end of the sugar jetty at Lucinda if we don't so no biggy. Will be good to get away for the night with a mate though as I rarely leave the house these days.....
  10. So I impulse bought the Innovate MTX-L PLUS wideband AFR setup the other day from Ebay. Is this gauge all I need to view and log with my laptop and PCMTEC (or xcal3) when they release a datalogging update? I own the Aeroforce obd2 gauges that work well. They were for the BA but now are in the Territory. Only issue is they cycle on/off continuously every few minutes when the car is locked so for now I use an adapter with a switch but guess it's a slight wiring difference from 2003 BA turbo to 2008 TT. No issues with 1-6 gear selection in the ZF though and reads everything else correctly that it can read (coolant,head temp,trans temp,boost,MAP,IAT,STFT,LTFT......). Can't see the screen properly with polarised sunnies on which is a drag in Nth Qld!
  11. Some pricing I got quoted for building your ZF.... Stage 1 - standard shaft with extra clutches $2500. Stage 2 - cryo shaft box 500kws $3950. Stage 3 - billet shaft box 600kw $4950. Stage 4 - 6r80 shaft 650kws $5950 (requires new stall convertor).
  12. How often does that happen though apart from when fitting new springs? Overboost on my xr6t used to require a restart before the throttle worked again (like a dead TPS otherwise). That was with a piggyback ecu though.
