Hi All, I'm a newbie in need of some help. I'm currently in search of a tuner around bris and know I need to discuss with them. I recently puchased 2013 FG XR6 Turbo. Mods on purchase were: - Plazamaman stage 2 intercooler - Plazamaman turbo side air box - Plazamaman battery relcate kit - Fan cooled tranmission cooler After an engine issue I have had to embark on a build sooner than expected/planned. I'm currently getting the engine rebuilt with the following: - Machine work (Hot tank, recon head, valve seals, hone, deck, crack test block, linish crank ) - Spool rebuild kit (pistons, rods etc) - Ovate wire beehive valve spring kit - Billiet oil pump gears and backing plate - 12mm head studs - Stage 3 cam shafts - Atomic timing chain kit - ARP main bolt kit - Ross performance engine dampner - new water pump - 4 inch turbo back system with high flow cat Likely additions - Main girdle - Flex plate - Fuel system and injectors - Turbo ? Budget is becoming an issue however I dont want to skimp on something now only turn around and upgrade it in a year. Ultimately, I would like to max out the engine build and be around the 1000HP but can't go this far until I have the budget to sort out the drive line which is likely to be a year or more off. I'm pretty lost as to the best options with the fuel system and injectors at different levels of HP. Also curious as to opinions on the flex plate but it seems like a great idea to do it now. I wasn't exactly planning on upgrading the turbo however if this will let me set up the fuel system and injectors correctly for the ultimate build it makes sense to do it now. It would also be good to get as much HP as the stock driveline can handle. What do you guys think the best options are ? Thanks
Diff on my FG turbo ute is on the way out and local mechanic recommended that if I want the diff built up to try some out of town mobs rather than the local transmission place. Want to go with a TrueTrac centre, weld the diff tubes and stronger axles might even be a good idea while I'm at it? Ive got 300rwkw, tramp rods and carry an extra half ton load every day. So who are some diff/driveline companies I could contact for a quote that would do an exchange? Send me a built rear end, I'd swap it locally and send my old one back to them. I'm in rural nsw, about 6hrs from Sydney & 5hrs from Melbourne.
