Trent0

5?rwkw Na->turbo Conversion

Recommended Posts

Hey all, been on this site for a while now, only to gather info and not post much lol.

Keep it simple. had myself a 2003 xr6 ute that made 185rwkw by CMS. 2 and a bit years later my mate wrote off his BF typhoon and I

begged to buy his engine off him. A few short months later I got the guys at CMS again to fit it for me and tune it. As you could

expect with a conversion it had its bugs and faults. Due to fuel pump being sh*te it only grabbed 236rwkw with Joe @ 6psi before it leaned out

. I modded it from the get go:

Plazmaman 800hp IC kit, racebox/odessy battery,

walbro gss 292 fuel pump,

turbo ported/flapper mod,

60lb Dekkas,

X-force 4"-3.5" exhaust

Malwood option 3+ clutch

12lb actuator

T-56 conversion

4 pot brembo's

I relocated form sydney to townsville just after the conversion so I cut myself off fro mthe great help and support from CMS

unfortunately. From there I left it in Toowoomba at FORCED PERFORMANCE this last few weeks while I've been away with work

it pulled 363.9rwkw @ 17psi :D

It's come a long way (still using m78 diff :z lol)

will post pics when I can

So far all is good, my brother has made a few short vids nd put em on youtube. Still haven't grabbed a diff yet, am waiting for walwoods to sort me out something :)

Would like to do plenum and hi mount turbo manifold but not sure if itll push me over 400rwkw, this clutch is only rated to 410 :-/

If I did go high mount manifold from 6boost would I need a new dump pipe?

Make sure you header wrap the dump pipe too bro.. the f6 has a heat shroud around the steering rack as well and we have a 4" dump on it...

Yea I'm thinking of heat wrapping from the dump to the back of the cab as it noticeable heats up and sometimes burns my foot lol.

It's down at my old folks place atm, I was getting around at the start of the year, you may have seen me putting it on a car trailer on a traffic island during peak hour one afternoon back in february lol

Has the drag strip up there been closed down yet?

Will have to get something started up. I have 4 mates up here with 3 typhoons running around 330rwkw and a xr6 turbo with over 400atw. We keep talking bout going for a cruise but not sure where, the roads r pretty sh*te.

If your keen we can organise a bbq or meet up early december?

That sounds like an idea! I won't be back up north until early december but I'm all for it. I know there will be at least 4 blokes keen to do it in my group. So yeah, either head upto cairns or tville or anywhere with no potholes. . .

I got a Process West Plenum off of a fellow forum member, on it's way in the mail now. That will with any luck go on next week. Also probably going to swap out my 60lb dekas for some 1000cc to do an e85 tune.

Would be awesome to get into the 400+ club but not too fussed,. Will already be a handful I'd guess.

Bring on the 120kph overtaking powerskids :D

The new wheels to be put on. think I should have grabbed some 20" or 9/10" rims now :/

A few updates - The utes in at a suspension place getting bilsteins put in along with new bushes and things that are worn out.

Tomorrow arvo it'll get dropped off at FPT to get the plenum installed and 1000cc injectors.

And also tomorrow getting the rims wrapped in some rubber so should have some pics of them on the car by the weekend smile3.gif

oh and that diff from Mal Woods is ready to pick up at the end of this week - M86 housing, true track, 3.73 gears and standard two piece shaft (he has no chrome molley atm)

A few vids made last month by my brother - no laws were broken

don't be a hate about the vid names, brother was being a smart ass

New shoes :D Needs a cut & polish
