    If you build it yourself is mild steel an option? It's a fair bit cheaper than S/S. Much price difference with v-band v's flanges? Also heard v-bands aren't really necessary for the whole system. Xforce sounds like a good option. Have you looked at venom?
  2. Random Picture Post Thread.

    Guessing it's supposed to be a screamer pipe? Definitely a lot of time and effort went into that. If you like that welding art type stuff check out Dabs Wellington on instagram.
  3. The Off Topic Thread.

    That's pretty cool. A LOT of dosh for an outboard though! How big is it? Any more pics of the boat? Are you mechanicing or painting? Sounds very similar to this. Fyi, they mention it's 14m but it's 12m.
  4. Cool build. Any plans for body work? Would be cool to see it stay as is for the sleeper look. People will get quite the shock after you decimate them lol
  5. The last 2 episodes... Was good to see the Fairlane hit the strip. Not too bad a times for a big car. And yesterdays episode. Goddamn I love the RX3! Looking forward to seeing Woody's brass donkey collection too lol
  6. WA Spotted & Chit Chat Thread

    Nice coupe mate! What eng/driveline she running? Would like to say I will make it to the cruise but flat out with work atm so doubt I'll have my car finished
  7. Sorry I can't for the life of me can't remember or work out how to embed the video. Can someone please help?
  8. If they were a manual and a coupe or sedan I reckon they'd have more chance. Company in Dandenong has been tuning them. Pretty reasonable numbers. Wonder how long they'll last. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ZJ7Fe8uJPYc" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  9. Oil return line leak

    No turbo off. Can do with it on. May be easier to take coolant pipe on outer side. Can't remember if I did or not. The pipe flange bolts at turbo end can get with a 3/8 or 1/4 drive socket with long extension. Wobble drive helps. Bit of gasket goo/rtv silicone on the gasket at sump end will help. Also a little bit on the bolt threads. If you're going to get that pipe from ebay in that link, it would pay to put some grease on the thread on the AN fitting just to stop galling. Hopefully that's the case. When I did my BA the hole had been drilled most of way thru from factory.
  10. Oil return line leak

    I'm not familiar with the thread repair stuff. Is it like a quickmetal putty or epoxy? If so you'd still have to be careful not to get any in the sump. Yes you could use some sort of rtv silicone as a temp fix. Make sure you clean all oil off flanges and the bolt with brake cleaner or metho. Put a bit on the face of the flange and about 5 to 10mm of the bolt shaft/thread near the head of bolt, and I'd let it set for 24 hrs before driving. As I said I think it will be a temp fix so it may still drip but at least you'll slow it down.
  11. Oil return line leak

    Make sure if you helicoil that thread you either put grease on the drill bit and tap, or another option is hold a vacuum cleaner nozzle right next to the hole as you're drilling and tapping. Also drop your oil afterwards just in case. You'll need a right angle drill to drill the hole. If you're not confident in doing it get someone who is to show you.
  12. What Did You Do To Your Car Today?

    HOLY SHEET! You don't see many of those Chrysler outboards around any more. Hope nothing breaks on it. I reckon you'd have a hard time finding any major parts for it
  13. Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    Roger Are you using the stock housing, and if so are you modifying it yourself?
  14. Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    Nice. I was looking at the HP Junkie stuff too. Why didn't you go for his gears? Did you have to buy direct from Boundary or do they have re-sellers here?
  15. Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    That is pretty cool, Puff. I've been looking at those as well the last couple of days. What brand gears and plate did you go for?
