  1. After the hassles I went thru... Absolutely... I reckon I wud hav squeezed extra KW with the low Comp + extra boost
  2. Just to further ad to our previous conversations on my engine build post Mat... My last car ... An r31 RB30t... I built it with CP NA forgies... Tuner couldn't run more than 8psi on 98... Few people said the tuna was the problem, but in the end I ended up running E85 full time... I'd bet you'd hav to do the same ... Forget risking 98 Mat
  3. Just an update... Emailed Brett from Shockworks... BA-BF Coilovers are $2200... Delivery to Syd West is $60... Sounds like a value upgrade. Question... Currently have Pedders generic red urethane front lower control arm bushes ... Harsh as... Was thinking of a change to super-pro? Any other recommendations?
  4. J... I'd just take the plunge & go & see Independant motorsports & do the same to your Terror as what this guy has. I'm from Sydney but plan on a trip to Melb to get my ZF upgraded to a stage 2 from Nizpro... Y?? Mate they have the runs on the board... These forums are great as they give you an idea of what does & doesn't work. Good luck mate .. Luv to see another territory in the 10s
  5. Spoke to brad @ Als race glides ... Said was an FG that's run an 8?? No one heard??
  6. Am being serious masdang!!! ??. Wel knowledge is King & another convo with John ... Says they've done numerous xrs with 500+ rw without plate changes which r still going ok... As the only concern with these pumps are the sintered gears disintegration... It should b fine
  7. So if I am not planning to increase revs past current limiter (not sure if 450ish rwkw is possible) there's no need 4 this?
  8. Am hearing & understand all yr theories... But yes... If the backing plate isn't worn.. There won't b any pressure bypass through the plate... And assuming relief valve mod just holds more pressure inside Ye engine through harder Spring... Anyone change Spring themselves?
  9. Ok I msged Intune & John stated that he rarely sees a need to replace backing plate. Suppose il find out once it's stripped
  10. Genuine intune on eBay http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=172192821665&globalID=EBAY-AU
  11. So finally got a set... $170/tyre F&B from AAA tyres castle hill. AWESOME VALUE!!!! Not as good thru the corners as Potenzas... But great dry/wet grip... Handles 300rw pretty dam well. And real quiet
  12. Part of my Engine rebuild will require Pump rebuild with 4340 gears ... Noticed intune sell them 4 $389 4 the FG... BA/BF are $429... Wudnt they b the same? What other brands do people recommend ?
  13. Great info luke ... Thankyou ... I do understand yr hi comp favouritism .... But I want to b able to run on 98 as well as possibly E85... My last car (r31 RB 30t ) was tuned on E85... Mainly cause the pistons used were too high to run on 98... In short was a pain as I had to travel out of my way to fill up... & as it's also my only set of wheels I also take long trips with her. Curious ... Did u buy the engine from a salvage yard or do u own an F6? If U bought how much?
  14. Thankyou ralf... I will let you know 4 sure... But was under the impression FGs don't suffer from this... My mate worked @ peter warrens & said FGs didn't seem to suffer... Even tony from Tunehouse had the same opinion ... Let's hope this wks
  15. AND... I'm really getting annoyed with this friggin turbo-exhaust flange bolts which keep coming loose!!!! Tunehouse changed bolts to studs (with a gasket )but even they come loose & 1 has even fallen out !! .. don't want to change to a top mount manifold... Can I run an FG?
  16. Looks like F6 has stronger rods , but block is same... Still think spool or alike wud b the way to go ... Yeah tuners in syd are hit & miss from my experience... Seen sum guys get great results & then sum hav engine failures from the same stable... Gonna really research that area
  17. Won't do a high- comp turbo to run on E85... Wud just consider tuning on E85 4 extra tuneable power ... I have the Herrod E85 compatible pump so it allows the option... My tuner 4 current tune is Tunehouse... But am considering spending a few weeks in Melbourne for a holiday & getting Nuzpro to fit the upgraded ZF box & tune ... They're proven & cheaper than tunehouse
  18. Thx 4 the input guys ... Question... F6 has same rods as XRT ? Think I want a bit more re-assurance than this... Where do I get pump gears from? These just increase flow or pressure? E85 has crossed my mind.
  19. Hi All yes like many of us XR owners around Aus... The stage 1 tune has lost it's appeal & now bigger things are on the card. Just want to confirm that've there's no reason I can't build a NA barra engine into a turbo? Would I be better off going for a BA/BF or FG donk? The plan is spool rods/forged pistons, arp head studs & crow springs/retainers. Of course a standard reco of the head is also in the plan. Head gasket recommendations? My plan is to tune this to 450rwkw. Any other advise would b awesome cheers
  20. Haha... Typo... Yeah nexen... Il check out that model
  21. Hi... Yep that time again... The potenzas have worn away.. In no time I might ad... So time to pik a few brains b4 shelling out. Checked a few forums & the nexus radial gets a pretty good rap. Anyone used them?
  22. was @ WSID about a month ago & couldnt help but b amazed @ how qik the XR's are going now. In particular a burnt orange FG ute with plates "Martins" on it. In between runs all I seen was it had standard Ford hardware under the bonnet... it idled as a stocker but managed a 10.7. Id love to get sum info on who did the work & what was done. I managed a 12.9 with which I was fairly pleased with... but now am inspired to go further....sound familiar? Cheers
  23. After buying Phillips "blue" headlight globes (both H4's & H3's) im getting annoyed @ how little time they take to fail. I definately didnt touch the glass when changing & my suspension isnt much harder than standard Ford XR. Ive noticed a post here discussing HID conversions on the FG...is there also for the BA/BF? Is there much involved in this convert & do they last longer? Absolutely hate changin globes on my BF...a pain in the U no where. Please no one dare recommend me use Narva.... they shud be called NEVER
