  1. Hey everyone first Post on here. so today was driving home from work long story short heard a massive bang from the rear of the car I have an fg 2008 xr6 turbo and it was a massive bang😂 got home put it on the ramps found that the rear diff bush bolt had snapped. So the passenger side bolt it was by the petrol tank. Now I could have sworn I have heard this sound a month or so plus ago but wasn’t as bad now the hole diff if you put it into gear etc smashed on the bottom of the floor etc so it’s near undriveable noise is loud obviously as diff drops etc. can someone tell me please if I just n
  2. Gday, bought a FG XR6 N/A a little while ago, was going to buy a cat back exhaust and wondering on everyone's thought on the best sounding for the N/A. I heard that a 3" doesn't sound good and 2" isn't loud enough soo I was going to go a 2.5" but thought id ask for opinions Thanks.
  3. Here's the obligatory thread to follow my dream daily's quest for 310rwkw! I want a place to add photo's, ask questions specific to my rig (without spamming other threads) and update anyone that may be interested! I'll treat this as like a sort of "build breakdown" even though its no where near as tricked out as a lot of the other builds on the forum I bought the car just over a year and half ago and basically immediately started saving and buying parts for the rig. Here's a before and after shot of the car from the first time I took it out for some shots till the latest.
  4. Hey guys, I have a 2010 50th xr6 turbo and I have an issue in regards to my cluster. I am unable to set any of variables in the centre of the cluster like my fuel consumption or digital speed reading as an example. It displays it in the small icon/tab up the yop but any time I go to set one of these options in the centre of the cluster it makes the noise but does not appear. Have disconnected and reconnected battery and done all the basics with no luck. Any suggestions? Cheers
  5. Hey Guys So I recently brought an 08 FG turbo off a guy from facebook, stoked as with the car driving it home (about an hour and a half from where I live) I made the mistake of putting 91 in it I assumed it wouldnt be a problem bc I owned a ba xr6t prior and it ran fine on 91, anyway it drove home fine come the next day I drove it around in the morning to show one of my friends and when I went to leave I started the car and when I put it in Reverse it stalled all of a sudden (yes its Auto) to my frustration I ended up getting it to drive again and once I got it on the road I gave i
  6. This has been a long time coming! I said I'd do a writeup of my intercooler install a while ago and never got around to it, till now! 💪 Take this thread post thing as a GUIDE! Every car although the same model can be slightly different, as found out after to a bunch of people who have installed this cooler – some even do it for a living! In saying that they will all be pretty close! Although this guide is done for a Mk1, a Mk2 install should be pretty similar, as far as I know the only real difference is that the Mk2 has AC lines that interfere and need to be bend out the way. I sti
  7. Hi everyone, I currently own a G6eTurbo 2010 model with approximately 100,000 kms. I have done nothing to the car besides a rear muffler delete, besides this it is stock as a rock. The other week I was driving on an expressway travelling at about 100 kmh and then accelerated, not an overly hard acceleration but was overtaking someone so a reasonable push. As I put the power in the car lost power and flashed “Transmission fault” on the display. It put me into limp mode (3rd gear). I pulled over turned the car off and turned it back on and it appeared fine let me drive no
  8. Hey guys got a bit of weird problem here and I cant seem to find much on this page about it at all or in general. So I have a 2011 ZF NA fg xr6 and Im having a weird issue when I am coming into a stop the car struggles to almost find its idle point and it will rev up and down and fluctuate until its fully stopped. The issue is inconsistent as it wont do it all the time and its only happening when coming into a stop/rolling to a stop at low speeds/gear. Once stopped the car finds its idle and is fine doesnt dip up or down and its driving me insane. I have noticed since this issue be
  9. Hey everyone, My 2010 FG XR6T ZF6 has been on the dyno today and on its last few power runs after you let off the accelerator about 5-10 seconds later there was a massive clunk that sounded like a gearbox was about to come through the floor. After the clunk it was slip out of performance mode into neutral and about 5-10 seconds later would go back into gear by itself. I have done a bit of research and cant seem to find anything gearbox related other then diff bushes but this thud seems to be coming from the under the front seats. Has anyone come across a issue like this before and figured out
  10. Hey guys just wondering if anyone knows where I'd get a set of black sun visors and map reading lights for my fg sedan or knows the best way to do it myself, can't find them anywhere. Thanks
  11. Hey guys, I am looking to purchase a FG-X XR6T and want to spend a few thousand (including labour) on increasing power. Is this achievable? Will I need to travel to Sydney/Brisbane to reliably get mods installed and a decent tune? (Located Mid-North NSW). Or just stay local? $3-4000 would probably be my limit on spending. I want the car to be reliable and be fine dealing with my lead foot on a daily basis for years. 350kw is just a ballpark figure I would probably be happy with. I dont want to go crazy, I just want to get the most bang for buck.
  12. Thought I would post up here about my car on this forum after stalking for quite a while and becoming quite active on the "Other Forum" Have had my 2013 FG Xr6T for nearly two years now and have slowly been accumulating a few modifications for it. Had the final bits of work done a few weeks ago at MonstaTorque and managed to pull a final figure of 400.7rwkw. Que comments of hub dyno and manual The route I've taken with the car and many parts can probably be looked at as unconventional and excessive. As a young bloke about to venture into his first mort
  13. Thought I'd make a thread of my modding journey, anyone who is keen to post their own journey is more than welcome! the rig end of last year ----- current - minus exhaust before current
  14. Hey guys, just a question, I am installing bluetooth module that goes behind fg icc unit. Howdo I enable it? I heard aboutforscan and downloaded the extended version but howcan I enable Bluetooth module? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
  15. Hey guys, hope this can be of help to someone out there. 5 months ago my housemates 09 n/a xr6 5 speed started slipping gears, as most, if not all of you who have had the displeasure of owning one of these time bombs know, the day of the glittery oil pan had come and his 5 speed sh*tbox had come to an end. Myself being an apprentice at the local ford service centre saw this as an opportunity to learn what's involved with a 6 speed conversion. To begin with I already knew on the 6 speed the TCM (trans control module) was built into the box, therefore didn't need any extra plug into the ECU
  16. 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

    Fg Xr6t

    What mods can a fg Xr6t manual take with a stock intercooler (what can intercooler handle up to)
  20. I started with a NA FG XR6 & ZF 6sp, auto and decided on a power upgrade rather than a car upgrade (hoping to save $$) which has gone south dramatically! I am after any suggestions or advise that may help the following... When I collected car the mechanic proceeded to tell me that he doesn't really know what he is doing with the FG as opposed to the B series. I was told by the guy to take it to a performance tune shop and have the motor "paired". No one had any clue and now I have the following issues; Car only engages P, R, N, D and doesn
  21. Hey guys & gals, I’ve had this 08’ FG XR6 for about 10 months .. no probs with the stereo until recently, started cutting out on bass notes, be it from the CD, radio music & even station ads , been doing it for about a week and now finally died .. note I don’t crank the volume high, & it has a sub box in the boot which still works when the head unit cuts out.. any ideas people?
  22. hi guys im looking at upgrading my intercooler, are the HDI Hybird GT2 pro intercooler kits any good? $780. This is for a mate I work with. Thanks
  23. Hi guys, After filtering through all the misfire related topics and find very few threads with actual resolutions I thought I'd start a new one. Basically my 09 FG G6e turbo started misfiring at WOT when at the strip the other night. 400rwkw running E85 to give an idea of mod level. The thing had done it before, when it did I took it back to the tuner where it got a service and retune and came out happy as. Has been running sweet for about 6 months now but the problem has returned and is far worse. Essentially when I am on hard boost it sounds like it has a very bad misfire and no p
  24. How's it going? Anyone know where or what wires are for the existing reverse camera, there is a 12 pin harness on the back of the icc there is more then the same colour and I need to solder in an rca cable with power to to connect my new icc stereo upgrade for reverse camera Fg series 2 2012
  25. What’s needed to change rocker cover on an na ba to the fg one? I’m told I’ll have to change either coils to fg ones or use something to keep the coils down from poping off while under load with the stock ba/bf coils and I’ll need to change the manifold? Thanks in advance
