    Popping her cherry

    A bit puzzled, yesterday I replaced two lost turbo bracket bolts. The bracket that has the wastegate actuator on it. Farkn fun that was to get to. But got it done. Now after taking it for a spirited thrash on the way home last night it start hitting a backfire and smoke kick out the back. 4000 -5000RPM on full boost. I have replaced coils with genuine units recently. Just under half of a tank of fuel, so hoping it's not surge issues.(255 walbro with small pot drop in set up) Im gonna try a set of SK20R7 spark plugs. 315 rwkw's on 14.5 psi. 8 psi garrett actuator. Any ideas on what it could be would be well received.

    Stock Cooler Piping on Basic Tune

    Sydney prices in general can eat a dick. You guys get ripped blind for what you pay for a 3 bedroom home on the eastern side of Australia. The Great Australian dream. More like a farkn nightmare.....

    Ba II F6 MODS

    BA versions definitely sell for a bit less. BF and BF2's still sell for 25+ with low k's. Fuel pump is a cheap do it yourself mod that's worth doing if ya gonna do the exhaust and actuator because you don't won't it to be thing that your tuna says if you had have done it I could have got another 20 -30 kw'smore out of it.....

    Stock Cooler Piping on Basic Tune

    You really have to run ya tuned car with a stock cooler in hot weather or multiple full boost runs to experience heat soak. Then ya say to yourself "sh¡t that feels like it's down on power " at that point ya decide to pony up for a decent cooler, what ya buy after that is a question that has been answered and argued over and over on here. So it's upto the owner to make the decision, whether it be right or wrong. And if ya saving for a house good luck with that as well in this day age. Especially depending on which state ya live in... Hehe...

    Ba II F6 MODS

    Phoons do still turn up wif low k's every now and then but there still holding big dollars. Just depends if ya want to pay 25 -30 k for a 2003 -06 FPV. FPV 497 ya middle muffler isn't as much a restriction point as the ya cat. Cats gotta go..... Dump will be fine, do full cat back exhaust and a new fuel pump (255 walbro intank unit ) and you will make 300+ rwkw's easily. Maybe a new Garrett wastegate actuator while ya at to keep boost under control when ya turn it up.

    What Did You Do To Your Car Today?

    Finally installed new genuine O2 senor yesterday. Took it for a hills drive and reset the trip computer. Instant results were really good, dropped from 17.7 L/100km's to a best of 11.8 with it settling to around 12.1 -12.4. Time will tell what it stays at but its a good result for now. Also re- installed my turbosmart bov. On a general inspection I noticed I have lost two bolts from rear of my turbo, two of the six that are on the half round brackets. (One next to the wastegate actuator and the above.) Does any know the spec's on these bolts or I'm just gonna remove and take one down to nuts and bolts r us.

    10 Psi tune only making 5 psi

    All the info you need is right there in all the replies above. Generic plug and play tunes are still relevant but definitely out dated. They were aimed at giving people a tune which could just be thrown in the car and off ya go. (Take ya money and see ya later sort of thing.) As Keith said get it to a Vic tuner, give him ya car and ya money and you won't regret out laying some hard earned coins. Definitely get in contact with the tuner, tell him you wanna do injectors, high flow cat and a custom tune. He will either source the stuff for ya or send you away with a shopping list of goodies to get before tuning it. Suggestion: Mick at Pitlane performance. Plenty of other good tuners in Vic to help you out, get on the ferry.

    I know your pain Nath. Silhouette black is a painful colour to own. Looks nice clean for about a day after washing and a good chamois. A good Northerly blows and layer of dust coats my car, And its time to wash it again. #SilhouetteblackLYF.

    Jet's Tuning (Oh No)

    Nice work big fella. It's all ways good to give ya self a challenge every now then and this one looks like it was just that. You'll always have return customers, ya have the passion for the barra turbo platform which gives people confidence that there car will be in good hands.

    Ba 4 speed limits.

    The six auto in my VE series2 sv6 is an absolute shocker. Doesn't know what it wants to do. 210 kw car with a trans that surges then hangs neutral gears. I think like double R said they need to tuned. Before that there still rubbish. Give me my T56 in black betty any day. #ManualLifeFTW
