  1. Still got this car.. Still having issues with it.. Or I might shut the roller door and forget I own it for another 6 months.. Thinking about taking it to a tuner that's in the same state as me, since to get the tunes touched up alone is $1700ish and I've already laid out 2500 at the same shop when it was originally tuned with the xcal.. Thinking about getting PCMtec software and seeing what it's all about, then on the other hand I don't want to break it lol.. my AFR's at full noise and currently at 10.0-10.4 so a couple of people are suggesting if that's got anything do with my oiling issue and and its washing bores.. Sold my VF calais V8 so now I wanna get this car sorted 110%
  2. The crappy part living 500km from my tuner is, if I could I'd drop it off to them to do a leak down test on and some investigation.. I dont know what kit to buy and would rather just pay them for their experience and knowing how to read/understand results and dig deeper.. This sh*t issue really does take enjoyment out of the car.. The fact its still smokey on startups im banking on something up top is fuky but who knows at this point in time I spouse... I mean if I was my VF I would write it off as "ahh LS things ya get that!" lol.
  3. Initially they were done thinking it was a valve stem seal issue that was causing problems.. Burning from the rear breather? I replaced the rear PVC a few weeks ago when I put the FG turbo hoses on.. No catch can - just a stock.. If ya dont mind maybe some time when ya free would ya shot me a inbox maybe with ya digits and have a quick chat, prob easier than over a forum.. This thing really does wreck the passion!
  4. Thought I was on a winner with this oil consumption issue... But nope - still shocking.. half the OK section for 600km with a bit of a flogging in there.. But once again from all accounts of people around me it doesn't blow smoke.. Although it does occasionally on startup and first take off of the day, valve stem seals were done back in January over this; unless I ballsed up and I ❤️ Bananased them... Does anyone have a rough idea how much oil the "ok" part of the stick is? As in 800ml-1L? For what it's worth the turbo intake is pretty well dry and the intake manifold is nice and dry too so IDK
  5. Took the old boosted lounge suite for a quick burn today! Nothing like going for a drive on a nice day, sunroof open, windows down, and some good tunes! 330km later for what was meant to be a 60km trip and I was home again! God I love this car! it's the oldest, highest mileage car in the fleet (316,xxx on the shell) here but its also the #1 fave! Also got a seat base bracket for the a fire extinguisher too, since the car has had a boot fire before 😮 at AFF Drag nats in 2018.. And tucked up in the shed, sleeping with its enemy/stable mate, the mighty L77 6ltr V8 of course! best of both worlds. Going to put it into daily duties for a few weeks and keep a eye on a coupe of quirks and hopefully its all good now! Also put a optima yellow top D34 battery in it the other day too, so will see how that goes... Seems to start a bit easier but my old battery was about 4 or 5 years old and had been ran dead flat a few times.
  6. It'd be good to catch up with ya and have a chat, find out what options are etc etc.. I'm going to be at The Bend on the 18th dec, I'm guessing the terry will be running in a new engine then? I'm guessing at min you would of bent a few valves?
  7. Only spool rods, bf2 turbo pistons, head studs, XR6T Developments pump gears. From what I understand it's near its limits for stock pistons being relatively safe, 17psi 98 and 21psi e85. It does have a wind band in the innovate ECB-1 gauge Been looking online at the J2534 cables you can use with PCMtec but yeh it's all over my head. I'd be better off paying the tuner for their time and knowledge By the time I buy the cable, the credits, and the software. I was watching a mate play with the tune on his AU XR6T the other day with a haltech PCM, and that was way over my head. Might need to do some research/reading up.. One thing I would love is my car to do E85 cold starts as good as my VF Calais 6ltr does them! But that's a car tuned for it from the factory too I guess!
  8. If I tried to tune it myself I'd probably kill the poor old girl! It's a southern Adelaide built motor so need to be delicate with it or she'll go bang! 🤣 I wouldn't know where to begin with it!
  9. I've been told just changing to pcmtec it should pick-up some power. Alot more tables to modify or something, compared to the classic old xcal 3.. you tune the Territory yourself don't ya? Seen your post on the gears, holy hell that's far from ideal!
  10. The sh*t part is for the last 18 months I couldn't get it to my tuner because closed borders. Nobody here I trust with the car so its I buy a leak down test and have a look and I dont know WTF I am doing there, or wait... I like who tunes it, they are fantastic and have looked after me well and done me solids but with this border closure and uncertainty with how it will pan out with them staying open I dont know if its work when it gets a retune on pcmtec going to someone in SA.. here's hoping I can get it sorted and looked at early in the new year.. On one hand I want it sorted, on the other hand I'm starting to look at it as the 17 year old BA falcon it really is, and its starting to not be worth the effort/$$$
  11. Got this the other day, turns out I had no idea about tubos and the 1 way check valves in the rocker cover breather to the intake and I was still running the NA setup.. So will see how we go now - apparently the crank case would of being seeing a bit of boost and pushing oil whereever it wanted to? I dunno.. At the moment the car is in the sin bin... Got home from the bend 2 months ago and havent driven it since. I'll have to feed it to her now and see if this fixed it.. If it has - happy days I'll look into getting a flex tune.. If not - back to the sin bin.. Also, who is that Justme knob...
  12. Took the car roll racing, 700kms in 12 hours and that included 2.5 hours on the track. It really is great these cars, belt into on a track then drive 330km at midnight no questions asked in comfort, style, and reliability! Lost a few races, won a few and that was good, however I need to leakdown test this motor as it used the entire "ok" section of the dipstick on that trip unsure where though, as people who were behind me when I was getting up it said they could smell e85 but it wasn't blowing smoke... it does blow some on the first take off of the day.. that's why valve stem seals were done a few months ago, tuner is suggesting valve guides. However I did only just learn factory turbos have a check valve in the pvc breather line which I don't have, so unless the crank case is seeing boost and pushing oil somewhere? But once again it doesn't blow any smoke when cruising or under load..
  13. hmm, prepare for disappointment, but I may bring the town mayor or someone of importance along.. (does my ego count as someone of importance?) I've never really driven long distance on it, but doing my work trips (17km one way mostly at 80 and 100kmh with no traffic - the joys of country!) its sitting pretty well bang on double my NA BF! 22.4L per 100 vs 11.3 on the NA, but that's alot of cold starting too I guess, Might need a JD touch up once some things are sorted. Would be great to see your terry there, the videos and posts I've seen of it shes a unreal beast!
  14. Will be interesting to compare what mine is like Vs yours on juice to get there since we both have similar long distance highway trips to get to the bend. No where near as good as yours is my hot tip! Mind you; I'll be dong it in style, comfort, and in a slouch! 😂
  15. Some really great work here! Can't wait to see some of these cars in the flesh, really do enjoy jumping on this thread and seeing that SA actually has a tuner capable of doing fantastic work with no di*k measuring. Keep up the wicked work @JETURBO Wish I had that kind of economy on E85 that MCW quoted 😄 Going by the look of it I might see a couple of JD cars next weekend at the bend? Hope so!
