  1. Hey Everyone, so I tried to post this a little while ago but for some reason it went and put itself in another sub-board (mod edit: PM'd to explain). Anyways (This list of mods is is up to date) using single pierberg 360 pump with the surge in OP I had no clue what intank pump was in it (wouldn't be stock with making 300kw) but I decided to just get a new Walbro 460 for insurance New FPR ARP 2000 Head studs What power does everything think it will make with these mods? It will be going for a tune within the next week E85 as well as 98
  2. Yea that is too right. I got the work done by Garry at true-Torque Auto in Caloundra and he has been fantastic. Couple of reasons for going with Garry over some of the other big shops 1 - He is a small 1 man band and is very meticulous with his work - the cars that he has pumped out prove the quality of his workmanship 2 - Price was a factor, You pay a big price for speedy service, I don't mind it taking a bit longer if it doesn't break the bank 3 - There was over a month's wait to even get the car booked in to alot of the big shops around me, and with the zf dieing it was a fairly urgent thing, I gave Garry a call and the car was up there just a few days later. Cannot Fault his workmanship and overall he is a great bloke, always friendly and willing to help out his customers. Would definitely use him again Once its all finished ill hopefully upload a few photos and even a video or two
  3. Hopefully I might see that magic number, I have my doubts with reaching it as I will probably run out of fuel system first. We shall see how it goes Profile is a 10min drive from where I live and Forced is a good 2 hrs away. There both great tuners, just logistically makes sense for me to go to Profile.
  4. So I have had a couple of issues over the Christmas break with postage but we are all up and running again. I have decided that I midas well get it tuned for e85. So I went out and bought a Walbro 460 intank pump and a pierberg pump for the surge as well as a new fpr. Looking at getting it tuned by profile autosports in brisbane next tuesday Tuesday so I will be posting up numbers then. Hoping for 420kw on 98 as a daily tune. Anything above 460kw on e85 and I will be stoked. Maybe even crack that magic 500 on a stock bottom end? We will see
  5. Keep the guestimates coming I will post the results when they are in
  6. What power gains would I get from going E85? I was panning to do that early next year, so upgrading the internal pump because I have no clue what it is, surge pump and changing out the fuel rail and getting a reg for it
  7. Hey all, So the search for more power began when I blew 3-4 in the old zf. The original plan was to manual swap it with a big clutch for something a little different to a built zf or gide. After unknowingly buyig an N/A tr6060 we found that it didnt fit. The search for a turbo box now meant that the car would potentially be sitting in the shop for 2 weeks. So hey why not get the car semi built while I find another trans. My original plan was to throw these parts on in the new year anyway but hey I'm not complaining that its sooner. So basically here is a list of the new parts that are currently being put on the car. Keeping in mind that the ute made just over 300kw previously. Full 4" xforce Exhaust and 4" dump 4" intake and battery relo PW stage 3 intercooler kit PW surge tank (Old style) with 044 pump To my knowledge a walbro 460 intank (Already Installed) All Manual Bits including a big DCS twinplate clutch Garrett GTX3582r Gen 1 with a turbosmart 45mm external gate kit Crow Valve springs/w retainers ARP Head studs Atomic Oil pump gears & billet backing plate with ported housing Atomic Heavy duty timing chain kit. Along with other small bits and pieces Atomic Race Balancer The Ute already has 1000cc injectors so I wont be upgrading them yet. No Built rear end but plans to do this in the future What power does everything think it will make with these mods? It will be going up on the dyno at Forced Performance early next week. Any comments and recommendations welcome Cheers
  8. I've seen a few FG's running around that have had an FGX front end conversion done. Is it literally a straight swap over being that they are relatively the same platform? I know it would probably be easier to just buy an fgx but the turbo utes are holding their value. Wanting to know if I could just get a wrecked fgx and do a straight swap pretty much. Cheers Legends

    HSV Brembo's on an FG?

    In that case would BA/BF brembo's fit with little modification?

    HSV Brembo's on an FG?

    Hey All, Might be a stupid question but would factory HSV Brembo's or AP Racing brakes off any newer model HSV work on an fg xr6 turbo ute? Reason I ask is that I'm looking for a decent upgrade over stock and the stock brembo's off a vf ss are cheap for what they are second hand. I would imagine at a minimum you would need to get some dog legs made up. Is this worth it or should I go for a different set up? Any help would be greatly appreciated Cheers
