  1. Unfortunately no, sold the brake kit last week along with the FG sedan and Territory brackets. Do a search on Ebay, brackets come up every now and then.
  2. My replacement car is a 2021 BMW M550i. This will do until my other investment reaches it maturity and I'll trade it for a M5 Competition.
  3. Update. Brakes for sale, comes with new front rotors and pads. Will suit FG & FG-X Falcon sedans, I have the bracket for the front callipers to fit the sedan. $4200 firm. Will post in the for sale section with pics.
  4. Seats sold, no mucking around! Engine comes with 4" dump and 5" cat. Will thrown in the exhaust if engine/trans is fitted to a SZ Petrol Territory.
  5. Update. It's time to say good bye to the Territory as I'm returning it back to stock for sale. Bought a 2021 BMW M550i so the Territory needs a new home. Selling the following items; Build Monsta Torque Engine and Stage 4 ZF/6R80 Trans combo with intercooler, piping, GTX3582R complete $15k ono Brembo 6/4 Rotors with new front rotors and pads $4200 Simmons 19" wheels and tyres $1500 FORD FPV GT-P Style front seats in immaculate condition $2200 Will get around to posting the items in the for sale section.
  6. Are you suggesting the water methanol kit has the effect of boosting the octane of say PULP to 107 Ron?
  7. Thanks mate. I'll go back and have a look. I need to upgrade the fuel system in mine as one pump isn't enough for E85 usage as you well know. I won't be aiming for the same power level as you're but want to max out the turbo at ~ 24psi so need more fuel to keep up. Cheers.
  8. Not really, I't wouldn't be that much time lost anyway. If the time lost is of such concern simply make more power.
  9. Without the torque reduction and torque management controls in place the trans wouldn't last 10 WOT shifts no matter what hardware. The torque reduction happens in 200-300ms from memory, hardly enough to slow the car down over the 1/4 by any significant means.
  10. Those gearshifts on the dyno are perfect. Sounds just like my stage 4 MT trans. I've spoken to Rob extensively about the programming, he's been kind enough to share quite a bit of knowledge about the programming of the trans. He's told of some of the horror stories of his trans going out and being butchered because the trans tune has been fcuked with, some tuners really have no idea what they're doing. Taking a nap between gearshifts is key to longevity.
  11. Depends on each transmission and how badly it was rooted when it came in for rebuild. The run-in period in mine was less than 500kms of non-highway driving, shifting manually. I spoke to Rob a few days ago and he mentioned some transmissions take forever to relearn, others do it within a couple hundred kms. @PuffwagonThe stock 6R80 gearset is known to break the carrier/cage. They're not as strong as the ZF unit.
  12. A few grand worth of parts? Cryod/hardnered gear set is $2k, add another $2k for frictions, seals, bearings etc. And that's without the 6R80 pump and converter modifications. My dealings with that mob in Dandenong have been less than satisfactory, luckily I got my money back.
  13. Needs more fuel delivery to take advantage of E85. Boost is capped @ 19psi, made around 455rwkw. Tried running more boost but ran out of fuel at 490rwkw. I need to replace the rear muffler as its choking the engine. A single 3.5" into twin 2.25" was a great idea in theory but it can't cater for the gas flow.
  14. 2 months later....bit the bullet and it's now running on E85. I should have done this from the get-go, the engine feels soooo much better. Boost is limited to around 17-18psi as to not max out the Walbro 460 in tank pump. Such fun rolling along in 3rd and blowing the tyres off at 80+km/h. No cold start issues either Car goes in next week for some maintenance and I'll get Rob to check my road tuning on the dyno. I've also had the Superpro bushes for the control blades and front upper control arms removed and fitted genuine rubber bushes when the revalved suspension came back. It's so much nicer to drive, much more complaint and no annoying suspension squeaks. It was Shockworks recommendation to revert back to the factory bushes as these work best to eliminate NVH. They'll probably need replacing every 30-40k but so be it.
