  1. Yeah that's a good idea.. I just live in a small town in south australia. Not much here in ways of tuners or wreckers.. adelaide is 400km away and Melbourne is 500 away lol this is a stupid question but what would the odds be of gutting the cut/straight piping it what would the odds of doing damage be? If I put a highflow cat in with no tune would that be running the gauntlet also?..
  2. Yeah true. I know what you sayin.. hes not a tuner just an exhaust specialist. This sucks lol
  3. He said if the cats completely shagged he will just straight pipe it if not he'll clean it out.. I just need flow there. Cat is not making boost at all as is.
  4. What about if I just get him to gut the cat? Would that be alright?
  5. I said to a mate it could be a blocked cat and he said nah it'd be runnin real bad.. and I said it kind of is.. I cant afford an exhaust system at the moment or new cat, so im just goin to exhaust place tomorrow and they gonna cut the cat out and put straight pipe in.. that'll do the trick yeah? Until I upgrade with tune etc
  6. Hey man, got the verdict back.. it was a blocked cat. Who would have thought lol
  7. Thanks heaps for your input man. I appreciate it.
  8. When hose come off there was oil puddled in turbo.. not heaps but enough to say its been getting oil.. if wastegate stuck open is that repairable rather easily or does that call for a new one? So pissed man.. always wanted an xr6 turbo and I finally get a mint lookin one and it makes bo boost for god sakes.. be like someone longing for an ss v8 and finally get one and it runs on I <3 Bananasing 6 cylinders. Frustrating.
  9. I pulled piping off front of turbo, fan spins beautifully.. no play at all.. very frustrating.. I have it booked in with ford on Monday to have a look at it, but my understanding is that they dont replace wastegates.. if wastegate needs replacing they just replace the whole turbo.. have you ever heard of this issue before?..
  10. Hey guys.. my BF xr6 turbo has had the check engine line come off and on recently.. its very gutless to say the least.. took it to a workshop 2 days ago and they plugged a scan tool into it and it said wastegate fault.. not sure of open or stuck closed from memory.. its not making boost. The mechanic said his vr buick would eat it.. he was a half assed mechanic only took it to him because of his diagnostic tool.. could the turbo be smoked or the wastegate fault could be power issue? Thanks. Forgot to mention its all stock. 150,000km odo

  12. Awesome man.. just goin for 10psi tune so 968cc or whatever? Lol I dont know much about it.. but will learn as I go along.. appreciate it man.. what car you got? How much power?
  13. What injectors would you recommend? Thanks for your replies man. Also would it be silly to leave stock twin 2.25" exhaust system on but change to high flow cat? Cheers.
  14. Thanks so much guys for the detailed responses.. I rang the guy that will do the tune.. heinrich performance in adelaide the go to guy for anything falcon.. and he said for the 10psi tune stock how it is now will be right to pull 260rwks+ when you hit the 300rwkw mark that's when injectors are needed and other mods etc.
