  1. One of the few negative things l have read about the XR6T is the potential insurance cost. l was pleasently suprised when l went into our local RACV branch last week to get a quote on our XR6T, l was quoted only $481 (our current car, a TS50 is also with the RACV at $850) Should mention we live in country vic, l am 32, my wife 27 and we are both rating 1. Makes me wonder what all the fuss is about, l guess the WRX can be ridiculous to insure, so the XR6T was assumed to be in the same basket. So how has everyone else got on with insurance? Have you been able to better my RACV quote?
  2. I think the stock blow off valves are fitted back to front because they are fitted with the piston side on the turbo intake side and not on the just before the throttle body side. What do you guys think about it?
  3. Hey, I have a BA mk2 turbo and I noticed about a month ago the turbo was fluttering when I drove it hard. The car HAD just the factory diverter valve installed. So I assumed this was on the way out (being a 2004 car) and I bought an atmospheric BOV for the sound and to hopefully stop the fluttering. The BOV is nothing special, just a $40 one off eBay that said it was compatible with my car. I put it on yesterday and no matter how I adjust the spring, under high boost, the turbo will flutter. This is the part that confuses me when I sit at 1700 revs I can hear the BOV is open
  4. Hey Guys, I've recently come across a problem with having no boost. Gauge says I have good VAC but when I put my foot down it hits 0 on the gauge and stays there. When this is happening all that can be heard is an air rushing noise. I was wondering if anyone else has had similar problems? and where the best place to start would be? Cheers

    Turbo plumbing

    Hi there Forum I am wanting to upgrade my plumbing from the turbo through to the throttle body keeping the original intercooler. First question is are the factory fitted intercooler good for the job as I am not chasing more power, I just want to install a pressured side of the inlet that is good quality, of metal construction, that has good seals between the different parts and has good quality flexible joiners that will not leak. My aim is to reduce inlet noise and to know that I will not be chasing leaks in the pressured side of the system. The car is a 2010 build and I

    Turbo flutter

    Hey peeps! how can I make my Fg turbo flutter, is it as simple as installing an aftermarket bov or is there more to it?
  7. Iv recently installed a Deceptor Pro Bov on my FG Turbo ute. The Deceptor Pro is a bigger unit than most blow off valves due to the electronic mechanism, so its not a simple swap as it gets squashed between the motor and bonnet. I've done my install with a Turbo side intake so there's more room to work with than the stock air system. However someone else has done this install with a stock air system already back in 2009 so search the Blow off valve workshop for "Deceptor Pro" & you'll find that one. There are over 100 listings for different Deceptor Pro models. Some of them have special fl
  8. I have an hks ssqv v4 bov and have connected it and for some reason it's not working. It's a dual stage pull type relief valve. Can anyone help me? Can it be done?
  9. Hey guys, I want to buy a custom BOV but Im curious to which brand/series is best for a bf mk2 xr6t to make the air dump/sneeze noise opposed to the flutter or shutter noise? CHEERS HOMIES
  10. Okay so I'm having a bit of difficulty with getting a dose or anything resembling the turkey orgy. I have blocked and removed the blow of valve. Slapped in a 3inch pipe that I sourced from the local exhaust joint for $25 and then I cut it down to size and threw a small POD filter on top. But with all this done I'm still just getting a PSHHH... No flutter at all. :'-( I'm starting to think my car might not be fully sick enough... If any of you lads can see what I'm doing wrong (other than wanting a dose pipe in the beginning) please let me know. I was also wondering if I may just need more boos
  11. Hi all failry new to owning an fg xr6T and just have a question that I cant seem to find imformation for. I just purchased and installed the Turbosmart Kompact Dual port, and currently have no washers in it with almost fully tightened up, Pretty sure that there isnt any leaks when idiling but just wanted to make sure its right so im wondering if anyone else has the same BOV running stock boost and if you used the washers or not?
  12. I have no idea how to do this..the car <rx6t fg> is my frist turbo and I would love to get the woosh and whistle sound... if anyone is out west wanna help set this up ill buy ya a box of beer ? haha.... something like this do these things make your car go slower ??
  13. Hi everyone, Sorry if I'm doubling up here, delete this post if necessary but just want to know peoples oppinions on tuning for my fg xr6 turbo. It's currently got a CAI and I've replaced the turbo intake muffler with 3" pipe and replaced the bosch bov for a turbosmart dual port BOV. Will it be more beneficial for me to get a proper dyno tune done or get a flash tune controller or what are good options? Its purely a road vehicle and I'm not really after shaving milliseconds off my quarter mile time but do like a bit of a punch when I drop the right foot. Also, and this is probably another topi
