  1. Just thought I'd throw them in there. 😁 I do agree that for the price of the 700hp rated ones, you may as well upgrade to the 1400hp ones. They are almost the same price. It wouldn't be too hard to find somebody with a press. I'll start saving now 👍$$$
  2. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/282528119215?fits=Year%3A2014|Plat_Gen%3AFG&hash=item41c7fcf9af:g:gjAAAOSwhspb9MHD So these are no good? ☝️
  3. $6k seems way too expensive! A quick look online and I see them for $240 per side. Are we talking about the same thing? The bottom picture of MRFG09 just above is what I'm after. The half shaft from cv joint to cv joint, not including the hub.
  4. Where from and how much $$$ for both? Are the 700hp rated ones worth it over the stock ones? Are the 1400hp overkill for most cars?
  5. Latest update after replacing mounts = still the same problems. I was about to change my uni joint because it makes a bit of a thud sometimes when I put it in 1st or reverse but when I checked it out underneath, they felt fine and had no movement in them. Out of curiosity, I pulled my right side axle off because there was a bit of play at the end closest to the diff. I found a shiny spot near the end as though a bearing was rubbing on it. I'm not sure if it was caused before the new diff centre went in but I would have a guess and say yes. I don't know why the guy who did my diff never mentioned it to me though? The question is should I replace my axles? Could that be the cause of the shudder when I lose traction? Has anybody experienced this?
  6. I have an engine hoist. Changing the engine mounts doesn't sound too hard but I'm unsure of how to do the gearbox mounts. I've never done that on any car before. I suppose it's just a matter of taking the weight. I better see what lessons I can learn from YouTube🤓
  7. Ok, latest update is all of the new bushes that they put in are rooted. They all need to be replaced. Good thing they were the really good ones that come with a lifetime warranty. Even they couldn't explain it. They said its the first time they've seen this happen with those fancy bushes. They asked if I thrash my car or have mega horsepower.... both answers are definite NO's. They said it could be the gearbox mounts twisting the driveline or the tailshaft. I've just fixed the tailshaft so it can't be that. I'll mention to them the Cat600 side bushes and twin hat centre bush when they are ordering the new ones for me and see what they recommend. Otherwise I'll be back to get new bushes in another 18 months. How hard is to replace the gearbox and engine mounts? Is that something that can be done in the driveway or does it need to go to somebody who really knows what they're doing? 🤔
  8. I will check out what bushes were put in and ask at the suspension place for their recommendations too. I am willing to try almost anything but I'd rather find somebody who can pinpoint the problem quicker than most. Would coilovers help the situation at all?
  9. It's been pretty quiet on this site lately so I'll keep the conversation going about my lemon. First answer is No, I haven't set fire to it. I want to keep it. I'll work through the problems and go from there. I still have surge problems so I think I'll try and put a bigger fuel pump in it and see how that goes. I've think I've tried everything else. I still have the shudder problem that sounds like axle tramp. I have replaced all of the bushes (including trailing arms) and have recently changed the diff centre and tail shaft. The guy who did my diff said that the centre bush has gone soft and to take it back to whoever did it and get them to fix it. That will happen later this week. My new query for you guys is - when I put it into 1st or reverse to start moving, there is a clunk at the back of the car. Any ideas? Is it bush related? Is this common in other manual transmission cars?
  10. So bottom line is = the 700hp PM intercooler is the way to go if you don't want to cut anything and it should be an easy install. Yeah? 🙂 An intercooler is next on my list for upgrades and I doubt I'll be going over the 700hp mark at this point in time. I wish I had a higher budget and skillset but that's what I'm dealing with at the moment.
  11. Ok, the surge problem isn't completely fixed. It comes back every now and then. Any idea's of what else might be causing it? The new coils have helped out a lot though. Also, is there a particular brand of trailing arms that are better than the rest? There are quite a few out there and some look different than the stock ones. I wasn't sure what ones to get so I spent money elsewhere. My latest upgrade over the weekend was a heavy duty tow pack. I'm not gonna tow anything really heavy other than a few motorbikes but it does look better and I can remove the hitch if I need to. It was only a couple hundred $$ extra than the lower rated tow pack. I also splurged on a cold air intake and battery relocation. Hopefully that will arrive sometime this week so I've got so something to do over the weekend. 😎👍
  12. Good news! The coils turned up early and I put them in. It seems as though the surge problem has been fixed. Although it did happen again on my first test, it hasn't happened again. I'll test it everyday just to make sure it doesn't come back. lol The trailing arms will be the next fix on my car. I'll be replacing the whole arm on both sides and not just replacing the bushes, correct? Seems like an easy enough task. Thanks for the help guys.
  13. I just bought a set of OEM coils off ebay. They turn up in a week. Fingers crossed that they are the answer to my surge problem. I'll update you all once they are in. 😎
  14. Thanks K31th. I'll grab a six pack as soon as I can and see if that fixes the prob.
  15. Checked the plug gaps, no change. Didn't have time to get coils. Maybe tomorrow after work? Any specific brand? Should I replace all 6 or just try and find the faulty one? Or 2? Or 3? As I want to add a little more power over time, will I need different coils in the future and if so, should I get them now or hold off?
