  1. Curious to see how it goes mate, I suspect it will be perfect for my needs.
  2. Same size as the stock 3582 wheels, no machining.
  3. Started out as a genuine garret cartridge with his billet front wheel and low back pressure rear wheel. Looks top level quality mate.
  4. Finally have the Nigel Rose core into the 3582.. Next step fit it all back up. Its booked in Wednesday week for a touch up. Hoping its not a scorching hot day for the dyno tune.
  5. Unforseen delays and hold ups.. I have the rrt core (it looks incredible) which is currently with cms getting assembled. Just waiting on the call for pick up and I'll be getting it all back together the second I can. Aiming for it to be retuned and driving before chrissy and hope to possibly send it down the freshly resurfaced Sydney Dragway during the holiday period.
  6. Haven't seen a rapid cooler but I'll def be under 400kw which sounds promising.
  7. Certainly! I think that will be it for power mods for the time being and then focus on durability which I rekon will involve building up an engine on the side and possibly a trans too. All the fun you can have really
  8. I'm hoping the new core is ready this week and then its a case of swapping the rear housing over, having a good look at that pesky turbo smart actuator, putting it all back together and dyno so 2-3 weeks hopefully.
  9. I ended up using a generic cooler 500x400x90 with the plaz hot and cold side piping. Cooler is questionable at this stage but from what I saw intake temps were down from a average of 40 to low 30s high 20s. We shall see how it all goes on the dyno once the high flowed turbo gets done and back on the car.
  10. Got the venom bolt in cat atm with stock dump. The last tune was done with the stock cross over and 3576 in place 280rwkw 13psi. Hoping the new piping and turbo arrangement brings it up to 330+ or so. But yeah I'll bolt it up maybe a day or two before the tune and take it for a small cruise check it out and really that's where I want it to be subtle, full throttle I'm ok with all the noise but when cruising I'd like no drone and quiet.
  11. Not a bad way to do it mate. Think that's what I'll do.
  12. Picked up these off market place today. Twin 2.5 going into 3 inch and herrod mufflers. I'm not sure if this has been cobbled together by a backyard dude or not but they were a bargain and hard to pass up. I really really want to keep the car as stealth as possible while being as powerful as possible so I'm not 100% sure I will be using these. Perhaps a test fit and drive to see how they go sound wise. The guy sent me video clips and it was crackling on decel after a rev at idle and sounded absolutely terrible - he later said he modified the car with no tune at all and the engine blew up - wonder why. Question is, is there any performance gain from these pipes? I mean at this stage the car has good induction, cold and hot side piping and will shortly have a modified 3582 turbo. Once the turbo is fitted and going back for a touch up tune, will I see more kW with this 'cat back' style arrangement or purely just extra noise.
  13. Quick turbo and manifold removal in prep for the new setup. Thinking I will remove the rear housing studs and go back to bolts. Pain in the ass last time and pain in the ass removing this time. Great chance while the manifold was off to check out the heater pipe that runs under the manifold. I had a 50 cent size puddle of coolant on the ground randomly and some dried up residue on the actuator. Water pump looked good but this o ring on the pipe has seen better days and was the culprit. New one will go in place when the time comes.
  14. Sounds promising! I'm excited! I have played with the idea of making the switch to e85 which might be the next step if the car becomes a weekender. However those figures sound great on pump.
