  1. Just before covid hit, I had the chance to swap my bf2 for a bf2 f6 with similar km with 10k cash his way. I’d only had my car for maybe 6 months at the time and was hard to convince the Mrs how badly I wanted it. I remember her saying that it’s a WANT, not NEED. She got me there... I’ve never lead with “want” ever since.
  2. Far out this one escalated quickly! I’ve got a oil leak that I’ve got meaning fix. I’ve bought the gaskets and seals kit from empire minus the head gasket plus their timing kit, oil pump gear, backing plate, sprocket, valve spring and a Ross harmonic balancer that’s been living in my wardrobe for about 8 months. Like you, I’ve been contemplating the arp studs one in one out method without removing the head and doing everything else all at once. After reading your thread, I’ll be making extra double sure not to remove the head at all costs. It’s a trap! ps, I’ve been playing around with pcmtec and doing some road tuning as well so I’ve found myself frequenting their forum a lot and have found quite a few of your threads/posts over there useful.
  3. I’ll look to see if I can take leave for that weekend. But you are right, shift swaps is another option but will leave that as a last resort
  4. No good! I’m rostered on to work that weekend. I will be on my swing shift working friday night so I can probably catch you lot in Tumut during the day when you get here.
  5. I’ll need to know the exact dates before I can lock it in. Otherwise, I’m keen to go for a lap! Cheers
  6. Build is coming along nicely mate! I couldn’t help but notice that you aren’t using the proflow manifold and swapped to the FG manifold. Is there any reasoning behind this?
  7. Thank you for your response mate! I might track down a spare as well to have a play with 👌🏼
  8. Evening all, just wondering if anyone has played around with the auto shifter? Id like to give the shifter in manual mode a firmer Shift feel. Has always felt way too soft for my liking and have a few times accidentally shifter the gears unintentionally. I haven’t pulled mine out to see how it works exactly, but after some digging around online. All I’ve found Is that in the Au-ba workshop manual on the 4 speed sequential shifter is a “torsion” spring that I think I might be looking at to replace, or find a stiffer option to get that firmer feel I am after. Or am I completely off the mark and has something more to do with switches that engage the up or down shift? So if anyone has had a play around with it before and can point me in the right direction, that would be sweet. Cheers.
  9. I buy a lot of the stuff I use from waxit.com Postage is quick to rural nsw and they sell a lot of commercial grade products. I rate the carpro products for bang for buck. Its also worth checking out forensics detailing YouTube channel for a insight on a lot of brands/products (sold by waxit) used by a professional detailer. He goes through and rates new and old products and recommends what’s best based on the type of user from a novice to professional. Car craft auto detailing is another YouTube channel run by an Aussie professional detailer who has ties to waxit and will showcase a lot of products sold by them also.
  10. I used that same one. I chucked it in the freezer and had a few beers. Sat it in place, held a block of wood over the top of it and gave it a whack with a hammer.
  11. Haven’t seen any sam crac. But zac baldy is cringe! He turned me off when he kept begging for sponsors.
  12. They are all really nice looking spots!! Here an idea for some comparisons. The hills looking in middle of pic towards are towards goobagandra, Blowering cliffs are to the right. And bondo/Brindabellas to the left. The smoke looks thicker in person and can see it up close but the camera doesn’t capture it. hazy neighbours houses from different sun light angle: picture of the sun:
  13. Same. We have been very fortunate with the direction of the wind compared to other friends and their families. The wind warnings have been lifted now so hopefully gives the firies a much needed breather and can concentrate on keeping the fires put. same back to you bloodyrantboy 😜 Hope the new decade serves you and all your loved ones well! As well as everyone else amongst the turbo family! I think/hope for 2020 things can only bounce back now. Surely we’ve seen the worst 🤞🏼 Now should I get you started on the greenies restricting the amount of fire hazard reduction/burn off/replenishment during the appropriate times of the year?
  14. Something that may have been better is postponing the fireworks. Off the top of my head I’d say Australia Day but that will most likely offend some too. I do live in the snowy mountains and currently I can barely make the houses out across the road from all the smoke. There’s currently a big fire maybe 20km from my house spanning from ellerslie behind Adelong to almost Cabramurra which made Batlow and tumbarumba evacuate/take cover. Plus all the people camped at blowing dam all got evacuated as well which is a massive holiday destination for people all over coming to my area. if there was something I could rant about is having to work night shift last night on a short Staffed crew because of no shows in top of having issues last night as well so got flogged in the 32c Smokey night. I drank about 4 litres of water and took one dehydrated piss of about 200ml. but I’m not going to complain. At least I have work and there’s firefighters currently doing it tougher than I ever will be ever
  15. Yeah I know. But like I said before. I can see the views of both sides. I understand why some are upset. And also understand why they weren’t cancelled. Unfortunately money is always going to be a over ruling factor. Especially over a almost zero fire risk. I don’t know how much they’ve raised yet either for the Red Cross disaster relief. But the exposure to donate would be seen by over a billion people as well so that can’t be all bad. In regards to having a bbq, use a gas or electric one if you must.
