  1. wow you must have one special Barra in there, revs up to 55,000 RPM? No wonder the gear changes are so violent. are you sure the factory Barra hasn't been replaced with a Pratt & Whitney JT8D? If so I'm sure the stock auto doesn't like the extra RPM that is supplied from a Jet engine 😲
  2. Hello there, I am thinking about getting some new rims and run the new 245/35-R19 Falken Fk510 is just got for my factor 19". I like the idea of using OEM style wheels but was looking at the Nissan OEM forged wheels and came across the Skyline V35 Coupe wheels. they are Rays Forged one piece wheels Nissan use from factory. I have found a set relatively cheap on Gumtree for about $650. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/golden-grove/wheels-tyres-rims/rays-forged-wheels-with-new-tyres/1225066514 Apparently they are quite light about 8-10Kg per wheel, id say much lighter than the current ones, so maybe a bit of a performance gain also. Has anyone on here fitted a set of these on a FG falcon Sedan from my understanding and using the "will they fit" website the sizing and offset difference isn't huge from my Factory 19"s. I like the idea of these being a lot lighter and will work with my new tyres. Now I think the Nissan centre bore is 66mm and the ford is like 73.1mm but I am sure I can use come centre bore spacers? Stud pattern is - 5x114.3 Fronts - 19 x 8 +33 Rear - 19 x 8.5 +35 will be looking to fit my 245/35-R19 Falken Fk510 thoughts? excuse my sh*tty Photoshop lol
  3. I'd put my money on a leak in the inter cooler piping, as per a crack in the plastic pipes like Keith has mentioned of a leak in a Joiner. Back in the day in my old ep82 Turbo starlet, I had a very similar issue, it would only build up to 5 PSI boost then back to zero when getting on it, I looked for ages, thinking it was my Turbosmart 2 way boost controller. Turned out it was a small split in a silicon joiner, and it for some reason could just hold 5 psi no more and after that it would let all the boost out. you can buy intercooler pipe kits online cheap. I would suggest doing that to see if it helps. worst case it doesnt, and you still have new intercooler pipes rather than the sh*t plastic factory ones.
  4. His palms are sweaty, fuel pressure weak, engine breaths heavy there's vomit in his posts already, engines spaghetti!
  5. I got a set of Nighteye H4 LED Hi/Lo bulbs, had them since 2017 and have been great and for under $40 for my FG G6ET https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Nighteye-H4-LED-Headlight-Light-Bulbs-Hi-Lo-Beam-Replace-Halogen-50W-8000LM-AU/302813119076?hash=item4681118264:g:uEkAAOSwxNxbUw3d&frcectupt=true
  6. If you want honest opinions. IMO the best angle of install would be option 3 - angled straight into the bin..... Sorry but that's just my honest Opinion
  7. From what I have been told (friends from uni that work at DJR and other V8SC teams), the mustangs did (simulation and early testing) actually have a better drag co-eff and also down force. To the point they even made changes to the rear wing of the other cars (commonwhore and Nissan) to reduce their drag to better match that of the Mustang, but my guess is they haven't done it enough to balance it out, it will take them time to balance the aero and drag for all the cars.
  8. It will be fine, Keith is correct it is best to have your tune suit all your mods, but the reality is it will be fine.\ I have a KPM Intake, Intake Muffler delete, and a Full Nizpro Big Big intercooler kit fitted to my car. My car is still on the factory tune and runs perfectly fine, no noticeable increased lag. I put the parts on as save up for the ECU and Tune, reality is its been like that for a year and is running fine. However, the only way to take the advantages of intake mods is with a tune.

    Power expected?

    300ish rwkw depending how much boost you run

  12. you may of just inadvertently answered the question to my post. my lip is lifting at the edges of on my G6ET. is it held down with just sikaflex? why are you up for a new boot lid? did it get damaged while you were removing it? I ask because I was trying to work out the best way to stick mine down again at the edges and if I have to remove the whole thing?
  13. all good, I guess ill just wing it hahaha
