    Mr

    Interested to see how this one pans out

    Mr

    You haven't actually tuned this to handle the mods, have you....
  3. There's a few good write up's on the site about it if you're inclined to do it yourself. If you take it to the pro's you probably looking at anything beyond $1,000 from memory its ~300 for the kit plus 70ish per liter for genuine ZF fluid of which you need about 14 liters for a full fill and labour on that. If you use dextron6 ZF compatible fluid you'll save a fair bit on the oil. The reason I ask about the wheels, there was something I remember with the Simmons I was going to get. Guy at the shop had said it could trigger ABS faults for some cars based on a different rolling diameter because of the sidewall ratio. I'm not saying that's the cause here, but maybe a bit of slippage in the box plus the wheels could be doing it?
  4. Hi mate. Certainly sounds odd? going to ask a fairly basic question here, what sort of rims & tyres are you running?
  5. 100% not the person to be asking on the matter. But if I see correctly, the rubber has sagged and is cracked around the top. I would be changing it anyway as a wearing item
  6. Could still be that maybe until a little bit of boost built up? Either way, doesn't sound so great. I'd get it on a hoist sooner than later
  7. Are there any benefits to doing this? Is it room in the bay & aesthetics or is there some other reason? Asking because I've always thought the header tank on the falcons made life so much easier
  8. Most modern rear sensors are more to check the heat differential across the cat too aren't they?
  9. Subscribing to see how off topic this build becomes. Proceed.
  10. He's a good man, disappointing to hear he took it to heart
  11. 2, Was talking about buying a 3rd when I met him I think. Or had on sold one. I know he was on the cusp with Uber and dealing with industry regulation change which was causing him some frustration. To his credit he did everything by the book legally & mechanically.
  12. I was actually going to mention that. When I met him he was getting rid of a motor that had spat a set of bearings at 450k. Being the inquisitive guy he is he pulled it down and I think posted a comment on it somewhere. But yes, fastidiously kept everything looking good. Phil was the boss
  13. Thinking any barra motor will have issues with sensors, coils, leaks, electrical riff raff, etc etc. If the question is more around turbo specific engines, I'd say the turbo itself, maybe rings (blow by) and conn rod bearings. How long though? well, I've seen 600K taxi's that kick on ok. That said, they get plenty of love. A poorly maintained barra? Not sure. All this said, I've seen 250k on an NA block, STOCK FILTER & oil. Still ran fine.
  14. You are correct there actually Puff. However I've seen a lot of nice cars ruined with bleed valves & boost controllers, just sayn
  15. Don't mess around with piggy back boost controllers & bleed valves. It's old technology & these aren't hack skylines from the 90's. The factory computer doesn't like to be fooled, get it tuned properly. The falcon computer regulates boost via the wastegate with a solenoid in a closed loop system. The only way to do it safely is to tune it.
