    Weird fuel issue

    Don't let the attitude of one dissuade you with helping members, Puff. I for one keenly follow your posts, and I appreciate your knowledge and advice that you share..

    Got home last night . I spent some time today finishing the backing plate. I've been a bit busy, so I haven't had time to order the pilot lights. I'll get to that on Monday...

    My Build

    I managed to get a bit done on the dash today. Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I still have to pull it apart and put a layer of carbon on the face plate and as I'm a bit broke at the moment, I'll have to put purchasing the lights on hold until I go back to work. I also spent some time on the starting issue that I've been having. It seems that as I'm running a Haltech CDI ignition, I cannot specify in the software to start the engine on wasted spark, as it normally does with the factory system. Thereby the car will not fire until it seems sync. This has resulted in the car having to crank for around 10 -20 seconds for it to fire. I dummied up my spare head and measured the gap from the intake cam sensor today in the hope of machining the sensor mount and moving it closer to the cam trigger. Thereby increasing the cam signal. Unfortunately, I found that there was only 0.8 mm gap between the trigger wheel and the sensor. So little chance of improving cam signal by machining that way. Having given up on that prospect, we went back into the Haltech software and we eventually realised that it was possible to specify a -VE Trigger home arming voltage. I then changed the 100 and 300 rpm values to -0.15 and 500 rpm to 0. And you wouldn't believe it, it starts after 3 crank rotations. If I said that I was ecstatic, it would be an understatement..... Another issue sorted, only the shifter to go.....
  5. I spoke to Daryn not long ago. Despite all of hie efforts, he could not find the source, or rectify the harmonics issue. From what I gather, the only thing to have changed proior to noise, was the cylinder head. So, Daryn has been running the car, and when I say running, I'm talking over 1,500 rwhp. So far, no obvious problems. Daryn did say that he will be pulling the engine down soon, for inspection. It will be interesting to see if he finds any abnormalities..

    NOT QIK - FG XR6T Manual Ute

    I think that we should start a cylinder head porting thread... That way we won't spam the OP's thread. I'd be happier contributing to the conversation there...

    NOT QIK - FG XR6T Manual Ute

    We were rather surprised at the amount of increased flow in the head, when we did mine. I have been advocating the benefits of cylinder head work for some time, but 99% of responses I get are "Just throw more boost at it instead"... It's good to see others seeing the light and realising the benefits. Out of curiosity, what size valves did you use?

    I've been a bit slack of late, just kicking back and enjoying the festive season. It's come to that time again, when I have to get off my arse. Or this thing will never get done. I have been in contact with S1 Sequential and I've spent some time trying different things with the shifter. Primarily, we considered the issue to be an issue with the installed height. I put in 2.4 mm or shim and managed to get all gears. Although the shift is still not correct. Tomorrow, I removed the detent spring from the box, as Simon seems to think that it is the source of the problem. I guess that I'll find out tomorrow. I had to go to a local wrecker today, to get a new factory jack, as I need it to raise the car enough for my trolley jack to fit under. While I was there, I grabbed a SR instrument panel, so that I can make a new housing for the IQ3 dash. I gutted the panel today and milled of some of the mounts, so that the IQ3 would seat nicely in the housing. When dismantling the assembly, I noted that the tacho and speedo ring assembly is mounted between the front and rear housing. I will be utilising this area to install the flush mounting section (Carbon fibre) around the IQ3. This panel will also be used to house all of the other necessary indicator, high beam, seat belt, Handbrake, driving light and door ajar pilot lights. I still have to work out how and where I will place the dimmer controls for the dash illumination (High series cluster), as well as the Hazard switching. I did a bit of research and found an Australian company which manufactures some beautiful pilot lights and buttons. I still haven't decided on whether to use the black or silver style. I am leaning towards the black though.. I am also spending some time tomorrow trying to sort the starting issue that I have. The haltech seems to have problems with the voltage form intake cam sensor. As a result the car cranks for around 15-20 seconds before it will fire. I collected my spare head today, so that I can dummy up the sensor and measure the gap between the trigger wheel. We think that distance is too great and we're looking to machine the mounting surface of the sensor, to increase the sensor voltage. Fingers crossed that this easy fix will be successful. I'll try to post again soon, hopefully with some more pics and stories of success. Laters
  9. I run a stand alone Haltech engine management system. As I had no factory EMS, my ICC could not link and thereby displayed the security code. Car ran, Dual zone etc woked.. I sent the ICC to Fadi, at https://www.aslautomedia.com.au/. They removed the security from the ICC and all is well again. Was $120 total...

    High amp alternator for ba falcon

    I don't think that it is an amperage issue. More likely an over speeding of the alternator.

    High amp alternator for ba falcon

    In tried using a 2 wire, 160 amp alternator from a Ford Mercury. The fitment was fine, but I had issues with overcharging at high rpm. I believe that it got to around 17 volts at 6,500 rpm. I thought that it may have had a faulty regulator, so I replaced it and tried again. The overcharge remained and I was fortunate that it only blew the headlight bulbs. After this, I decided to refit the factory unit while I sorted the rest of the car. Unfortunately, I haven't got back to it..

    Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    What stroke?
  13. Essentially, he replaced every component (except for rhe crank and rods) in a effort to identify the cause. Verniers included. In the end, he never found the cause. He just ran the car (over 1500 rwhp) and has not had any issues with component damage or failure since. The engine will be pulled again soon, so as to check bearings etc. I'll update it the thread if he finds anything....

The body is straight but the paint has a few scratches etc from spending its whole life in a workshop. 1524rwhp on pump e85 with full exhaust and air filter etc. Comes with methanol tune but it’s never been turned right up on methanol to get a power figure.
  15. The "sound" and its source could not be identified. So he decided to run it and "see what happened". It's still running fine, even after copping a hiding.. When he purchased the car, the engine was in pieces. The compression was lowered, and alloy rods were fitted. The exhaust manifold was changed and the Precision was replaced with a Gtx 91 mm turbo (from memory). I believe that a 5" dump and exhaust was also fitted and a bigger Plazmaman intercooler. After a little driving, the 9" housing was distorted to such an extent that there was nearly 10 mm difference at the diff center flange. A new moly housing was fitted, and much shorter gears installed. From what I gather, the rest remains the same... The car still has more left in it and it will be getting more boost soon..
