  1. Yeah mines not a daily driver either and at 43 ive had fast cars before so I just want this to have a little poke but be reliable also. Ive read plenty with around the 300rwkw mark that seem to be holding up and a few that have let go so I think I'll roll the dice on the Btr and see what happens.
  2. Whoa 60 page thread. Thanks I'll have a read through and see who he used. Thanks guys
  3. Yeah I'll be more than happy with 300rwkw in a ute just don't want to waste 2700 then have to end up swapping anyway. It won't get driven much as I work away and I'm pretty good on my cars. Might be worth trying g the rebuild and keep my fingers crossed
  4. Gday. I've had my BA xr6t ute parked up for a few yrs whilst doing up my patrol and just bringing it back on the road now. It's done 100k and it seems to have a noise in the torque converter or transmission. Its stock but I've just put a full turbo back x force system on it and it will be going up to Hi Torque for injectors, valve springs and tune. When ringing around to get advice on the BTR auto rebuild I'm getting mixed advise. Burliegh autos says he can rebuild it to handle 300rwkw and others say no chance it will break. I prefer to drive an auto and I don't flog the ute with the exception of standing on it now and then for a buzz. Am I wasting my time rebuilding this auto? If so what are the manual options and cost of changing it. Some searches on the forum mention the T56, is this the go to manual transmission for the Ba? As mentioned I'd rather stay auto but at the same time don't want to spend 2700 for a rebuild then have to do it all again. Any heads up would be appreciated thanks There's also a guy selling btr boxes for 2800 on Ebay and he says his box will handle up to 400rwkw, is he dreaming or is this possible https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Ford-Falcon-BA-BF-BTR-4-Speed-Reconditioned-Auto-Trans-High-Performance/222545906265?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20180816085401%26meid%3D69065848313e44e49082bdb52aea6149%26pid%3D100970%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D361695550107%26itm%3D222545906265&_trksid=p2481888.c100970.m5481&_trkparms=pageci%3Ae6825468-8fee-11e9-9117-74dbd1804765|parentrq%3A5e894ad016b0a4e88367a9e5ffd52c7d|iid%3A1
  5. Hi guys, Obviuosly new to the forum and making my way through the threads. I bought a 03 xr6t ute auto with 80000kms on just starting to mod now. From reading the treads this is my direction, please correct me if I am missing something. I want to make 300 to 325rwkw and keep the ute stock looking. I have already purchased db4000 t3 rotors and ds performance pads with braided lines, not yet fitted as the brakes are terrible. I plan on purchasing the plazmaman intercooler and CAI kit, Venom cat Xcal and tune Injectors of tuners choice Valve spring upgrade not sure which brand yet. Will there be anything else I will need (fuel pump) or maybe a cheaper/better option for the power im chasing. I realise ill be at the 4 speeds limit and might tear it up but that's not the end of the world, ill justbreplace that when/if it happens. Really good tread and I have learnt alot already, I come from classic car background and its my first turbo and loving it
