  1. Is normal to do that - basically means it is leaner than the range of the gauge which happens on major lift off the throttle. The car basically cuts most/all fuel for economy reasons during deceleration. You don't need to worry about being lean on lift off like that. I have the same gauge and get the same display. What is more important is that it is sufficiently rich when on boost.
  2. Give the forum a yell next time - if a seller like this wasn't willing to post to NZ, I'm sure one of us would be happy to have the parcel mailed to us and them post on to you. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com.au%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F251486271003
  3. I've got some dash cam footage of the BA sideways through a roundabout during a trip to the mechanic.
  4. When I went from a lighting strike BA to a Vixen FG with leather and 19s, my wife was like "Ooh! Flip key!"
  5. It is worth trying GW direct too - they may be able to ship it straight to you. In Oz at least, that turned out to be the cheapest way to do it by a long way.
  6. Lots of people on here recommend the Gulf Western Syn-TS. Since using it myself, I've continued to be very happy with it. https://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/topic/94598-zf-external-cooler-install-and-transmission-service-how-to/
  7. If my car had boost control issues and I had the boost sensor unplugged, I wouldn't be racing people...
  8. Haha I neatly hole-sawed the FG airbox. But the BA copped the jigsaw.
  9. You need to get it tuned to change the boost level . It isn't quite just "run stock FG boost pressure" as they have a different turbo to BF so will behave a bit differently. If you basically want a bit more power, a tuner can do that. Anything more than a small increase and you will need to consider changing the cat, injectors and maybe fuel pump. Cost depends a bit on what you can fit yourself and what hardware your tuner is happy to work with. Have a dig around the site for recommended tuners in your area and look at the 300 club section for the aorta of things people have done for that sort of power level and what they have learners along the way. It is amazing what these cars will do with a reasonably modest spend on some hardware basics and a good tune. Enjoy!
  10. Haha if this is my intake temp, image what the outside temp was! Minus 4 according to the car the other morning.
  11. Exactly. First thing I did when I bought the FG. Have been so sick of tyre places stating that the lock nut keys were wearing out when they were fine the last time I used them. Stop using rattle guns on them, dickheads.
  12. Dentist day... Oh well, only go every 6 or 7 years. Bracing myself for the usual lecture about coming more often. At which I'll nod and agree and come back 6 years later.
  13. Could be worth disconnecting and reconnecting again, and grabbing a multimeter to check all of your fuses.
  14. Working from home problems
  15. I didn't take a pic unfortunately but it was a few centimetres from memory. I was a bit unsure what to do beforehand, but once you remove the old caliper and got to test fit the new one, it will be obvious what needs trimming and by how much. Then it's just trial and test. You need to watch what you are doing so you don't hit something else with the angle grinder. I only had a 5" grinder - something smaller would probably be easier.
