do it with the suspension at normal ride height, ie jack the car up, place a jack under the suspension and take the wieght. Loosen it all off then retorque it.

After the clutch fiasco and having no idea where the oil contamination has come from I've been advised that putting in an Oil Catch Can

might be of some benefit.

If anyone has some advice/tips, pop em up. It seems pretty straight forward.

I'll look at getting:

**catch can from SuperCheap

**some braided lines with fittings (look cooler)

**maybe a atmo breather/filter?

Hey all. I think my coils and plugs might need replacing. The car seems to splutter kinda thing under boost up top.

Apart from going to ford with me Kidney's, is there an ebay mob that you know 100% sells genuine coils?

Oh ok. No I didn't pm him. I'll try that and also go see the ford crew to see how much they'd want.

Looking at doing an oil catch can set up atm. Its pretty straight forward to do?

Not too much going on atm. I did end up changing coils and plugs - fixed the problem I was having. I got the coils for $60 each and plugs cost me $25 gapped :)

I have the 3.5" single X-force system. It was a pretty sloppy fit so I got the guys at TMS to tidy it up and lift it (it scraped everywhere) as well as doing a rear muffler delete. The final product blew me away. Can see about the bottom 1/8th of the CAT if I squiz under the car. I can go over speed bumps straight instead of an 89 degree angle haha. Will get pics. Sounds quite nice, still trying to sort out how to get decent car sounds with my contour roam.

Planning to get to Power cruise in brissy this year as well as grabbing the new PW surge system and e85 :D

I was on the phone to Jamie today. I have a small plan in the works that will hopefully get completed by Brisbane Power-cruise time. :D

Not much has happened in the last few months. I was around at FPT today to sort out an external wastegate for the ute. I'm using a Tubrosmart hypergate 45. that's being welded up etc atm so

the plan is to have it running tomorrow sometime and hopefully sort out my boost control issues once and for all :)

Also saw Johns Engine on the back of Jamies ute hahahaha :P

Bit of a sample. Doesn't do the screamer justice, its a LOT more OBNOXIOUS in person. Can't wait to plumb it back in

haha man it's been almost 4 years and I changed them about 3 months ago! I really wanted to find another set of bosch but had to settle for some supercheap ones :/

*still has the F6 badge on the dash

Haha they were a good set.. My f6 needs new blades already and the car is only 8 months old.. I'd love to see the ute in person, my parents have now come around to terms and said they shouldn't have made me sell it

I'm heading to Melbourne at the end of October, if I drive down I'll pass by so you can have a look :)

I'll do an e85 tune when I get down there and see what it's capable of.

Whens your F6 going in for mods!

Hahaha sorry! You weren't wrong about it turning heads when I grabbed it that day.

need to get on the e85 bandwagon especially before powercruise, it'll love it but the only problem is you wont want to go back to that fossil fuel crap lol

I'll be living in Melbourne for a few years so filling up from day to day shouldn't be a problem :)

Now I just need to figure out if & when I'll fit a Th400 up :D

Jamie done all the cutting and measurements, 6boost done the welding of the housing.

I'm pretty keen for the e85 pump side of melbourne so maybe drop into Bluepower or get FPT to sort me out on the way down
