  1. How about the low tech version? "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" style on stands? 😀
  2. I do not know anyone that does it, but I do most things myself. Aircon is stuck on cold in my BA XT wagon. I am planning on tackling it myself at some point, but it seems like a pretty big job to do.
  3. Thanks for posting how it was worked out. Sounds like a pretty unusual issue.
  4. Can you set things up so the dash should be displaying "60" and then attach the needle at 60?
  5. Why not cut the sharp end down and resharpen it? That way the bit still fits into the drill as it is supposed to. It is possible to do by hand with a little thought and given that you are, just cutting a little alloy from the head, it wont need to be sharpened perfectly.
  6. How did you find the upgrade to the LSD over the standard G6E diff? I have been pretty impressed with the grip of my G6E turbo given that they do not have an LSD, but I am installing one as I expect it to be better again.
  7. Just an update on my Brembos for those that are interested. I got the 6 piston Brembos and new Bendix ultimate brake discs installed on the front. The brakes were initially making a constant ticking noise which was quite annoy me, but it has gone now. I think it was the crosshatch machined finish on the disc surface trying to spin the pads one way, then the other, as now that the cross hatching is worn away, the noise is gone. The brakes are really good! I am expecting them to cope much better whenever I can make it to a track day again.
  8. Elsewhere I have posted about looking at installing the 340mmx32mm Turbo Territory brakes on an FG falcon. They do not just bolt on as the 340mm diameter of the disc is too large, and pushes the caliper out to far for the bolts to go through the caliper and into the cailper mounting holes. While looking into all the brake options in the DBA disc catalogue, I saw there is a 325mm*32mm disk with the disc height .almost exactly the same (0.1 of a mm different) as the 340mmx32mm Turbo Territory disc. From my comparison of where the caliper sits on the 340mm disc, it looks llike the caliper might bolt into place in correctly if the 325mmx32mm FPV upgrade disc was used. This would need verification, but it may be possible to buy some Turbo Territory calipers (these are pretty cheap when you can find them), new 325mmx32mm discs (also pretty cheap) and have a simple, cheap, bolt on brake upgrade to the FPV upgrade brakes. If anyone in Sydney would like access to a Turbo Territory caliper to test fit, or if anyone can provide access to a 325mmx32mm disc I can test and post results here.
  9. I am currently thinking that I will have a go at putting the 340mm Turbo Territory front brakes onto the BA station wagon that we have, but the priority is a bit down the list of things to do.
  10. My motivation is more "make a good option available for people" rather than "make lots of money". I could not justify the cost of Brembos at the normal prices plus the cost of new wheels thousands of dollars all up, but paying less than $500 for for all four calipers and discs from a Turbo Territory made sense to me after I overheated the stock brakes at a track day. Going from Front: 322mm*28mm to 340mm*32mm Rear: 303mm*16mm (not ventilated) to 328mm*26mm (ventilated) Should be a decent upgrade over standard. For the crossover pipe, are you referring to swapping the bleeders and the crossover pipe, to making sure that disc travels past the different sized pistons in the caliper in the correct direction? Thanks for the reminder, but I have this set up correctly.
  11. They may very well not fit all wheels that came on all Falcons, but will fit plenty more standard wheels than fit over the Brembos. The wheel options for Brembos is somewhat limited. For my Brembos, I found some aftermarket 18" wheels (Lenso) that fit, but I took a spare upright, with disc and caliper attached to test that everything cleared.
  12. Does the Haltec do anything on canbus ? It might be able to send the "turn off traction control" message?
