  1. Thought it would be appropriate to thank the people most responsible for the successful completion of this project. * This bloke needs no introduction. Aaron aka JETURBO for all the engine and fabrication work. Words are not enough to express how grateful I am for the time and effort that Aaron put into this car. The result is something to behold. Thanks mate. * Paul @ PE Customs in Brisbane for the paint job which is perfection personified * Mike @ Mike Savage Custom Bonnets at Bargo in NSW. It’s a hybrid design we cooked up that actually works. It’s that heavy I had to get new bonnet struts to hold it up lol.
  2. Stock BF MK 2 which I am lead to believe has F6 bits, maybe conrods.
  3. I've had it done to my BF ute with 6/4 Brembos, using FG brackets reversed. Works great, no issues.
  4. Mike Savage Custom Bonnets in Bargo NSW. I ordered it in January and he only finished it last week. Works on his own and is flat out. It's a steel XR8 bonnet with fiberglass vents and powder coated grills. As you said hopefully it will get some of the heat out.
  5. Custom bonnet is finished. Respray next.
  6. Which is exactly the reason I decided to give Aaron the job because I knew he would do something special. I think the result is exceptional to be honest and I'm when he told me he was using cotton gloves to insall stuff I knew I had it at the right place.
  7. Yeah you're right about that. It's a long haul from Brisbane to Adelaide and everyone thought I was nuts but I didn't give a sh*t. Aaron did a terrific job and I would do it again tomorrow 🙂
  8. If your talking about my ute that Aaron did, the hero run was 417 and the all day tune was dialed back to mid 390's.
  9. No worries at all mate. The car has performed faultlessly since I drove home from Adelaide. Temps and Oil pressure perfect. Performance is mindblowing and when I open the bonnet blokes lose their mind lol so all good
  10. Well I thought it was important to get the engine bay done to a premium and you have set a pretty high bar with that mate. If I can get the rest of it done as good as what you have already accomplished. I'll be pretty happy with that 👌
  11. So next on the list is a full closed door respray and some new wheels and tyres. With the wheels, I wanted something special so after a lot of research I decided on getting these beauties made in Japan and shipped out to OZ. They're Work Meister S1r's 11 inch rears and 9.5 inch fronts
  12. My job description to Aaron was for 401 rwkw. When he pulled the rocker cover off he rang me and said there was a bit of muck and varnish in there and that we should maybe dial back our expectations in case the old girl couldn’t handle the upgrade. But everything when extremely well, hitting 417 at one point but we decided to dial in back a bit to ensure longevity of components. The end result is as good as I could have hoped for 👌👌
  13. Thanks Keith, That’s good news. Rear guards are already done. Fronts have been rolled but not pumped. I wanted to use 265/40 fronts so now that I know they’ll clear inside I can start looking at tyres. Cheers mate
