  1. Anyone with a truetrac fitted to their M86 diff experiencing excessive backlash? I've measured approximately 10 deg of backlash in the driveshafts left to right on both sides. Its not the CW&P back lash, that's been measured and in spec. Another observation is the driveshafts move up and down around 2-3mm when installed. I'm wondering if the truetrac is shagged. Hit and miss with these units, they're great for dealing with power but NVH is questionable IMO.
  2. Is it a manifold off job to clean it or just let the throttle body cleaner evaporate and/or just start the engine and ingest a gut full of oil and sh*t?
  3. Thanks. Will watch with interest. I know AI were at one stage looking at doing a pot for the Territory, don't know if that ever eventuated but at $1100 odd without pumps that's a bit expensive. Mind you, a PW or PM external surge with twin Pierburg pumps and wiring plus pressure reg is close to $3k fitted.
  4. Where/how will you mount this and what wiring upgrade will you do?
  5. Don't have that problem with mine, I'm lucky, I can get the FG sedan surge kit to fit to the Territory.
  6. Yep. I supplied the shop a centre only so I'm probably liable for the R & R portion. Will speak to the diff shop early next year and see what they'll agree to pay for. Moreover, I'm hoping the new CW&P isn't rooted as it was a brand new unit. Don't want it whining in 20-40k time, that will f@#$%n piss me off.
  7. Notice a bit of driveline shunt over the last week or so. Got the car on the hoist and there's 15mm of freeplay in the pinion. Looks like the diff is coming out beginning of the new year for some warranty work. May as well change the centre bearing and uni at the same time as part of preventative maintenance.
  8. What is the primary advantage of the CF over the steel driveshaft if a steel driveshaft is 50% cheaper? Has the single piece driveshaft induced any additional NVH?
  9. Cheers. Rob from MT recommends the same, an air to oil cooler. Will be my next upgrade for my SZ.
  10. That's a very tidy setup. The attention to detail is to be commended. Is the PWR transmission cooler a worthy upgrade and how does it compare to an oil to air cooler?
  11. The upgrade to the NV125 is the pinion upgrade from 3 to 6 in the TC planetary and a Morse chain. Locking the transfer case will end up in something eventually breaking in the driveline. No different to running a 4WD in 4HL on butumen roads. Perplexing how the rears aren't lighting up but the front are even with the rear biased torque split.
  12. Yep, GTP seats. Had them in my BF2 Super Pursuit and loved them.
  13. New front seats arrived from Proseat Interiors. They're absolutely fantastic, provide excellent bolstering and support. Great upgrade, definitely worth the outlay. The tan leather interior I had is up for sale.
  14. Bro, I don't know how to make a cuppa, I have people do that for me..... Having owned 2 TTG's mine did spin the rear wheels before the fronts. Both had open diffs, spinning the front was easy, especially when going around corners. Open diffs transfer power to the wheels with the least resistance as you know. Seems you have a problem and I trust you're able to sort it out. When it's sorted a truetrac or lsd will aid with even more traction.
