  1. If you are stuck with 98 find either a late bf turbo motor or a fg turbo motor. You cant put xr6 turbo pistons on gas rods so just swapping pistons wont work. Yes a gas motor will work on 98 but you'll be limited on boost by the high compression.
  2. Bleed the clutch again. If the pedal doesn't come all the way back when you take your foot off either the pressure plate is broken which would make alot of noise or there is air in the line. Being is doesn't make noise there will be air in the line.
  3. That's abit different being a factory turbo there could be a possibility that it got typhoon rods. I've seen the way toads uses that car even with toads top quality tuning I think if it had skinny rods they would have definetly fallen out by now haha. There's only so much stress they can take.
  4. If you've gone to all the effort of buying a barra and importing it would probably be wise not to test the stock rods they will fail at 400hp and then you have wasted alot of time importing an engine just to scatter it on the floor...
  5. I've ran a GM slave cylinder on my ford t56 for years it fits the same and the GM bleeder works much better then the ford one. They also don't break like a plastic one. Everyone will tell you that you need to buy the mal wood billet slave which is a just a classic mal wood cash grab waste of money.
  6. If your handy with the tools and have welders grinders and a decent amount if workshop tools it's not a big job for cheap but if you have to pay anyone for any work being fab,wiring, tuning well it will end up costly. Run down on what's required to make it fit in the car. You'll need a ba/bf sump if you end up going with a fg engine. Need to either cut the front of the sump to clear the k frame or cut and box the k frame to clear the sump. You'll have to drill out the holes in the engine mounts to drop the engine ~10mm and also cut the bonnet brace above the rocker cover so the bonnet will close. Gearbox if you go t56/tr6060 you'll need custom gearbox crossmember plus cut out the shifter hole 100mm further back which also makes the shifter come out right below the window switches so you'll have to make a custom dogleg shifter to navigate around the switches and sit out the El shifter hole. Will need to get a falcon clutch pedal and pull the EL pedal box out and mount the Barra hydraulic pedal on the side. You can get away with using the standard ford clutch fluid line with abit of bending and drill a hole in the firewall for routing. Also need a custom tailshaft obviously. Wiring for the conversion isn't hard if you want to keep the ba dash cluster and modify it to fit in the EL dash. If you want to keep the El dash well then you will have to do a lot more wiring as you need both ecus in the car plus the EL water temp, oil pressure sensors. There's plenty of write ups around of what you need to do to make the Barra ecu standalone wiring wise plus how to disable PATS to make it run. That's a basic run down of what's needed but you'll also need to add a speed pickup (shiftkits do a good one that can mount to the standard borgwarner diff) If you have all the tools to do it yourself it could be done for the cost of finding and engine and box plus ~3k but if you need to pay someone to make it all happen I doubt you'll see any change from 10k+
  7. Cheers mate I tried to pm but your inbox must be full
  8. Howdy gang after some help I'm looking for bf factory wiring diagrams. I already have ba diagrams but from what I can find the pedal wiring doesnt quite match up and I think this is the cause of my throttle issues on my conversion. If anyone has a copy can you please hit me up via pm 👍 Im also looking for advice on what I need to change tune wise to disable the vct as im running the ecu on a SOHC any advice would be appreciated.
  9. Mate you need to look in the real world where you make 2hp per cubic inch for a stout n/a motor. The stroke isn't too big to rev it hard there is plenty of v8's with a 4 inch crank turning 7500+rpm. Too many people think Barra's are something special they really aren't there still 60's tech with a reasonable head from the factory, with the same principles of any other motor of course it's achievable. What people in the Barra world consider a big cam with 240*@050 everyone else considers a basic street spec cam.
  10. Well and truly achievable when speedway guys have been make 230 odd rwkw with an old 250 crossflow for years now. Should be no reason why you couldn't make 300+rwkw n/a with the right head, cam, comp and intake exhaust
  11. I'd do a simple test before you outlay the money and drop the exhaust at the dump for a test. Imo you will find it won't make a difference. I'd focus on pulling the boost back and find mbt then put boost in till you find the motor starting to choke from the small turbine. You find as the exhaust housing starts to become the restriction that you will have to pull fuel out because the VE will drop off.

    My Build

    Replace the junk arp bolts with a new set of stock bolts from ford. Works out cheaper too
  13. It's consuming massive amounts of oil because the pistons now have cracked ring land because you installed an engine with 10:1 compression in a car tuned for an 8.7:1 engine. In short the Facebook mechanics lied to you when they said it's the same motor just bolt it in. Well that's my prediction anyway...
  14. Mine manual with a 26" radial and 3.7 in my 9 inch was crossing at 6500rpm for 135mph you'll need to lift the limited as with your power you should be at close to 135. Also you will need to go 3-400 rpm above what you expect to cross the line at. Only other option you have is to fit a 28" tire which you will have to lift it and get a big hammer out to make fit and even then it will only just get you 135mph at 6000rpm which will still need the limiter raised
  15. It's extremely easy to measure exhaust back pressure just a case of making a coil of tube and put a pressure sensor on the end. Tap a fitting into the manifold at the turbine nozzle and away you go. Almost guaranteed that the 1.06 housing will be creating a huge restriction at 20+psi.
