  1. That’s pretty much inline with what I was thinking aswell. Funny enough I had the chance to look at an rb tune last week was actually surprised with the amount of timing and how they had it come in the thing I was shocked and surprised it was still together. Comparing that tune to what you typically find in a Barra was surprising
  2. How far back do I have to go to find the saga about head lifting? Very interested in hearing some thoughts on lifting heads as I know of a few cars that have lifted heads, yet my little f6 making 500kw still has standard head bolts yet others making similar power with head studs are out here lifting heads.
  3. http://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/topic/92308-cpv-tuned-fg-f6/?tab=comments#comment-1653706 There must be some funny business going on here because I reckon it's nearly identical @JETURBO
  4. Hey @JETURBO where did you happen to find that 493kw dyno run from? Because I'm pretty sure that's mine and its got a twin 460 surge feeding it, not a single peirberg.
  5. My bad, posted up the old graph. This is the new one. From memory there is 0% duty cycle on the boost control at top end so you would expect it too hold well.
  6. It only use to turn 1 tyre on wet grass where now it'll turn 2
  7. Little bit of an update on the car. I have since removed the standard intake and airbox and replaced it with a process west 4" racebox intake. Made a huge difference in torque as it could finally breathe a little better without the restriction in the intake. However a couple weeks after removing the standard intake it snapped a cyro treated input shaft on the zf, so box was pulled out and billet shaft and some extra clutches throw into it. Car is now making 501kw on daily tune and yet to put a big tune into it.
  8. Just out of curiosity, did Dave at cpv give you a hand with this?
  9. Hey guys, so as the title says im just wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to swap a zf auto into a car that is say 30 years old and get it to actually run. I'm more worried about getting the zf to work than the motor because I know we can get the motor to run. Is there a way to get the standard computer to run the zf and the motor in a completely different car or does the computer not like playing the game? If not the standard computer, is there something aftermarket that would allow the zf and barra to run happily.
  10. At the moment I'm at 1.6sec for a 10.5 at 132mph. I'm more just curious at what time everyone else is getting and there setup.
  11. Just curious to see what people's 60ft times are that have the a zf? Is the auto built or stock, have built shafts and what converter? Also what technique people are using. I have heard of people using the handbrake and foot brake and then just flooring the accelerator and then letting go of all the brakes at a certain rpm eg 3000rpm. Another one is just brakes and then just build boost to a certain level and then just ensuring they leave on a certain boost level.
  12. So a couple of weeks ago the gearbox selector cable came off the lever at the gearbox leaving the car stuck in drive. I finally got around to fixing it properly after the cable ties that were holding it on came off and car was stuck in drive again. I decided to remove the lever from the gearbox, remove the little ball joint and just nut and bolt the selector cable on there. So I thought I would do a little write up for anyone else that may want to do it or has to do it if their cable has come off. I recommend doing it before your cable falls off because I can gaurantee that it'll
  13. Any updates on this? Having a very similar issue at the moment but am pretty sure it's just a voltage issue. Car will sit there for for 8 days while I'm out at work and when I get back my x4 says the system voltage is 11.8V. Start the car up and it sounds like a lumpy v8 for a minute and then comes good.

  15. Cheers mate, yeah definitely can't complain the time. Can't wait for next time to see if we can improve on the time. Had issues getting it off the line well so get that sorted and it should go a little quicker.
