  1. There was a intake piping. Zane of Maxx Performance picked it up when retuning it for me. He didn’t do the original tune.
  2. Went to a track day on Saturday and had issues with the front 6 pots overheating and shuddering. The car has near new DBA T3 rotors, in prep for the track day I swapped out the pads for some Pagid RSL1 pads (so a track endurance pad), as per instructions from Racebrakes I gave the rotors a light sand, fitted the new pads, bedded them in as per instructions. I did three hours to the track day, did the the first few laps without pushing too much to help the pads bed in again. After that had some fun, noticed coming down the back straight and braking from around 190/200 the front not quite biti
  3. Good to see another NZ G6ET owner, I’ve got a moderately modded one. There’s the FPV/Tickford owners club which allow G6ET owners too. They’re very active with cruises around the Waikato, just did an awesome cruise around the Coromandel two weeks back, around 12 cars. They’re on Facebook too, also on Facebook is FGNZ - heaps of G6ET owners on there, there’s also Ford Falcon Club NZ on Facebook... yes most activity is happening through Facebook - I’ve joined heaps of things on there and mange a decent cruise at least fortnightly. I’m in Auckland and go to just about all events happening, y
  4. Hi, looking to pull the diff out of my G6ET so another guy can fit a trutac for me. I’m hoping to find a step by step guide/video etc. Thanks
  5. Have booked with Zane for my retune, looking forward to him getting it properly sorted for me. Valve spring upgrade happening this week ahead of Zane’s tune
  6. By full exhaust I’m talking about from, and including the dump pipe back
  7. Appreciate your feedback. Yes I’m looking at other tuner options, nothing really jumping out at me with the rep of tuners here
  8. Hi, have G6ET with 355rwkw, currently have a full xforce system with the twin 2.5” pipes. Other mods include a Walbro 400, PW stage 1 intercooler, 1000cc injectors, GTX3582 gen 2 with flapper mod and porting etc. Had hoped for more kw from the recent tune, a couple people have suggested that single exhaust 4” system would help, thoughts? Reluctant to change the exhaust unless it’ll make a difference, wasn’t cheap to buy being a full stainless one. Thanks
  9. Cheers, a good 6-7mm clearance
  10. The brembos brakes fitted well with plenty of clearance
  11. Thanks, Koya were awesome, had cad specs on hand for my wheels/offset and the brembo 6 pots, the guy said they’ll fit okay. Doing a test fit next Thursday... fingers crossed. Cheers for the advice
  12. I’m running 20” rims Koya SF07 (20x9 offset is 30) front with but yeah will need to look very closely at the fitment as on F6s there’s like only a few mm clearance with 19s
  13. A guy I know has some 6 pot brembos with rotors that he is looking to sell, they’re 9 years old. They’re in good alround order with plenty of meat on the rotors. I asked him how much he wants and he’s asked me to make him an offer. What’s a fair price to pay? I’m going to use them on my G6ET but will of course first need to do a test fit for wheel clearance etc. The car running super low springs too so I need to be careful with using spacers. Thanks
  14. Got car back fromtuner, achieved 355rwkw and 802nm, suffered bad heat soak with follow up runs typically dropping 30rwkw. Not too sure that the car feels that much different to drive over the old mods. Definitely sounds better with the huge induction noise and turbo whine but just not quite going as well as I’d anticipated, not sure what to do next
  15. Where in the 300s will these mods get my G6ET on 98 fuel: Walbro 400 (already fitted) 1000cc injectors (to be fitted) PW stage 1 intercooler and piping (already fitted) X-force - full system with the twin 2.5 pipes (already fitted) GTX3582R gen2 with modded exhaust housing (36mm flapper, porting etc), and 14psi actuator. Just picked up last week, to be fitted. Tune being done on a roller dyno, will be go in the next few weeks when the tuner is free. Thanks
