Thanks mate, right around the corner from me.

Didn't know they did any performance stuff, thought they were more heavy diesel mechanics. Guess a phone call will tell.

from Simon at XFT.  "But I am ready to test and test and then test some more until we have at the end of it all, a billet Barra block that will support more power then ever thought possible". 

 

This is true R+D. Not many tuners in Aus going this far. I am so grateful to have one of best tuning my cars.

 

He is over 1500 HP to I would say well over 2000 HP that's over 1500 RWKW.

In all seriousness, I sometimes wonder if I should buy a cheap NA block in case I ever need one and they have become too hard to get. Could be fun to rip apart and see if I can out it back together too!

I did this^ for sh*ts and giggles, never stripped a (car) motor down so was good experience.

Only cost 150, scavenged the oil pump housing which saved me $300 alone for a full atomic pump exchange, and also used the crank

Then flogged off a few bits and pieces eg. exhaust manifold, rocker cover & garnish etc on scumtree lol

A lot of dicking around, but would be fun to disassemble, reassemble and then chuck it in the car and see if it runs.

Then sell it as a built motor, just don't tell them it was built with the same parts...

I have a lounge suite with spa and entertainment area under my patio.  My dad permanently hangs out with me there.  RIP 17.7.18.

Yeah my dads on the mantle at the moment until we be to our new place. I just can’t do the cemetery thing, I feel like I want him here with me. Might be weird to some but I’m more comfortable that way.
