Hey there,

Good luck with ya mods Mick. That car of yours is going to be very quick if ya can get traction. Velcro roads might be the go. Ha! Ha!

XR0500. Hope all goes well for you with Mick. He is a fricken legend. You will be very happy.

My car is Phantom in colour and has Black number plate with white letters and numbers. If ya think you see me, give a wave.

Regards Stoney. :ph34r:

Hey thanks Stoney :drool:

I will be keeping everyone posted with the progression of the mods.....

Hey EXR6T I saw you today driving along Sandy Bay road I was in my girlfriends subaru, I waved but I doubt you were looking at a white '92 liberty haha.

Ill keep an eye out for ya Stoney

Oh yeah and I think the Velcro roads will be a good idea for Mike, ive been in that car and its massively quick as it is, so furry tires and prickly plastic roads for Mike haha

Yeah I can't say I was looking out for a '92 subey lol..

I've seen a couple of T's around lately. Hope we can all get together soon..

we should set a date for our first Tassie cruise, I was thinking maybe first week in August, that'll give everyone a few weeks to sort out there mods, and give me time to do the repairs I need.

just wondering, will you guys be bringing your missus along??

Early August sounds fine for a cruise but also happy to have a meet and greet at mine beforehand in July. whatever suits everyone.

As for bringing the missus along, after the last cruise, I don't think mine will be along. Besides, we have a little 4 month old bubb now so spirited driving around the bendy stuff isn't really the go. So I will be cruising solo. I don't give a rats if anyone wants to bring their other halves with them though.

Im with mike in regards to bringing my missus, she dosent event like it when I come on boost with 4psi, don't think she is going to be a fan of 15psi :ermm:

But yeah everyone else feel free to bring your girlfriends/wives etc if you are lucky enough to have one that likes a bit of "spirited" driving :beerchug:

Early August is good for me, anytime really, so.....

Hey there ,

Count me in. Da wife will probably stay home. When I got the car back from melbourne I took her for a run and gave it a bit down low and nearly ended up facing the other way. You could probably imagine the absolute spraying she gave me.

I am now chasing up new valve springs as the car is intermitently letting go a little top end. Oh well!!

I am only pushing around the 260 rwkw mark, but made a VZ HSV 297 kw ute look pretty ordinary yesterday after I finally gained traction.

Regards Stoney. :stupid:

Yeah July sounds good for a meet and greet, I'm having various problems with my car ATM which should be fixed for a full cruise in August, but if you hear some under car rattle over our engines for the meet then you know where its coming from lol.

Yeah my missus doesn't mind the boost lol but in VIC not a lot of the boys brought their ladies, so it made it a bit awkward for her on the one she came along to, so she'll probably just stay at home too.

sounds like a plan.

What dates would be good for you guys, I'm easy of a night time, but my work is a bit hectic, so I have no real set days off each week.

that was me mate. saw you too on thursday on harrington street. was going to wave hello but thought we hadn't actually met yet so no point. was on my way to the spirit of tas. felt ashamed to present her to anyone as she hadn't been washed for weeks! no point in winter eh! car is now in the hands of Bluepower. we did a base run as soon as we got there and she put out 272 (injectors, tune, no cat) which was only a couple of kws off my tassie dyno result of 274.5. three runs later and they were already at 282rwkw on 2psi less boost with a much fatter power curve all the way through from bottom through mid range but losing out up top. they will fix that up but I had to go. anyway, that was just for curiosity sake. It's not getting tuned until the exhaust and IC go on.

Will keep you guys posted. hopefully this nizpro exhaust turns up for me in the next week or so.

your car looks nice F6T, couldn't see the dirt from the other side of the road. Yeah my car gets around lol!!

that's still a decent number 282rwkw, nice work.

Just a question, where do you guys get your car serviced / repaired (mechanical) around the Hobart area? and are they okay on price?

Howell automotive mate. Trust them with my life. a great crew - mature but by no means the cheapest hourly rate but for the peace of mind, I don't care. Rod is a perfectionist and a bloody good operator. can't recommend high enough.

you?

Nice work mate. Is the zorst the new Nizpro one everybody has been talking about??? Either way it should free the big F6 up for some really nice power figures.

Good luck.

Well im out boys!!!

Lost my job today so the T has to go, sad times :spit:

Keep a look out in the "parts for sale" and the "cars for sale" sections

Ive got all the parts to get this car to about 350rwkw too, injectors, fuel pump, rapid v3 kit, etm turbo oil line, actuator/flapper, 4.5 CAT and CAPA box, all these parts will be going for below price in the next few days (when I can be bothered posting it up)...

Oh and what kinda price do you reckon I could get for the T?? 07/06 model ZF, 100k's in tassie??

Peace out

Hey guys, I will have the car back by next weekend starting 25th July so thereafter we can organise a get together and a cruise. Reports so far on the car is that it is now a firebreathing monster. There are some exhaust fitting issues that are being sorted out today. I have asked for power to be capped at 335rwkw but it just wants to make more with this exhaust. It is so free flowing that it is preserving the valve springs which are hanging in there fine so that is good. Accordingy to the tuner, accerlation is like being punched in the chest and then having your throat held against the head rest! evil....

I'll post up a dyno sheet and some photos in Club 300+ soon so keep an eye out.

Guys, car is back on Tassie soil. If any of you guys want to come and run your eye over the new nizpro exhaust and have a listen feel free to shoot me a PM.

We ended up with 340rwkw. That's as low as we could get it to go as I did not want anymore. Gotta keep myself alive with a new baby on the scene!!
