  1. Old high school mate did it for me. He hires a dyno in Newcastle and did it there for me on a day that he already had it for a customer
  2. Sure does. It'll do more than that this week given the weather forecast :'D rain until Thursday
  3. No dyno sheet people but here are the deets Making 317kw on 15psi tapering down to 11psi I need to mod my flapper and actuator to hold the boost Car feels strong now with power peaking around 4500rpm Next step is dump pipe, turbo mods and may as well upgrade my turbo when I do that. Defs going for E85 next time. The car is quick now.. doesn't take much to break the law and it's obvious that if I don't take it seriously I could end up in a wreck pretty quick. Power comes on from about 3k now that the 3576 doesn't have much restricting it but feels like it falls over after 5000 rpm - manual shifting here means the next gear can continue pulling hard. I love it... For now. Obvious to me that this isn't the end, but I'll enjoy it until I get used to it (and until I learn to control this much power).
  4. Great advice. Good plan, I'll let you know how I go
  5. very minor inconvenience in exchange for the rest of her I'lll see what I can figure out. might just have to tape down a pillow
  6. my 155cm wife man, gotten too used to her taller car - if I can make her more comfortable then I get to go for more falcon cruises instead of boring rav-4 drives haha "take the plug out of the drivers seat and extend it to the passenger side..." so can I have both driver and passenger (ex-driver) seat working or only one will be wired up?
  7. I want to raise the height of my passenger seat. is there a way? do any models have an electric passenger seat? could I install a piece underneath the seat to raise the height? could I install a drivers seat and route the buttons to the left side so that it can be adjusted? any other ideas? what can be done?
  8. This is the worst part of our lock down If they tell us we're out of lock down on a Friday, I'm there Saturday morning if this happens
  9. Great to know with some care I should be able to enjoy 300 until I'm ready for the next big stage. Yeah no kickdown is a good one. I don't even like doing it on stock power. Feels too much like dropping the clutch in a manual which I don't do every time I want to get on it so why do it in an auto... Would rather the delay of it selecting my gear before injecting more fuel for a kickdown. I wonder if that can be tuned into the zf. I'll ask when my zf gets tuned
  10. 8-10k just on the box?! It's that how much it is now? I've been reading older threads when people were saying 3k was a rip off haha Daaamn 💰
  11. Yeah, tune your car to make less power to make the transmission live longer. My first tune should land around the 300kw mark with the stock gt3576. I'm hoping that with some care I might just be on the lucky side and get to keep my transmission healthy until I'm ready to do the next big round. Gives me comfort to hear you've managed to hold 500kw for 25 thousand kms. What did you do to look after it?
  12. Install a more efficient trans cooler to keep it cool
  13. I've heard many times that 'how you drive it' will affect how long the zf will last. I can't seem to find anything about what that actually means. 1. Manually select the gear before planting it 2. Throttle it at lower RPM to limit torque 3. Back off throttle to 20% and manually shift before throttling in again Am I on the right track? Any other maxims to follow?
  14. I do have upgraded valve springs, maybe I'm thinking about this too much then? There seem to be two opposing opinions here so how could the motor blow with the tune? Just if the sensors don't work? I'd like to be able to plant it at altitude in the snowy mountains in winter and not have a issue. Does this make the mod mandatory or can it be tuned to account for those conditions? valve springs head studs Cat x force 3.5 catback Antz stage 2 ic Kpm 1000-S walbro 460
  15. Have had some time to digest the comments above and have spoken to another couple of tuners (all reputable). As you know, the first said I must fix the turbo. Second said it doesn't matter but easier to tune with it done and third said not to bother. I'm wondering, having done some more research, the worst part of this is running too lean. Would a closed circuit tune not be able to account for that? I've got 1000-s kpm injectors and a 460walbro so surely they'll have enough left in them to shoot more fuel in should the conditions start leaning out? Is this logic sound or nah? (For those who wish to share their mind stuff)
