Good purchase. How did they clean up? 

Haven’t finished giving them a real good clean yet. Gave them a quick scrub with truck wash then run out of time. Mrs was due home any minute so quickly packed it up and stored away for the moment to avoid any unnecessary questions.

ill try and clean up better tomorrow and get some better pictures of the fronts.

 

Further updates:

I might have missed out on the rear brembo deal with the same bloke. He’s a bit of a strange character.

anyways Ill know for sure come tomorrow. If I do manage to get the rears as well I think I might strip them all back completely and repaint myself in a candy colour. Thinking red, blue and flirting with white.

Undecided on what colour but definitely one of these:

I think white will be a pain to keep clean, though I do wash my car at least twice a month, sometimes more living out in the weather..

 

I have a backup purchase coming should the rear brakes definitely falls through. Come across a guy selling injector dynamics 1000cc. Aparently only 10000km old and never had e85 through them if that even matters?

I have him down to $550 delivered at this stage for Friday. Aparently they were on a fg and he says will suit b series? This I’m not certain about. Also looking at the pics they appear to me to be older than 10000km old. I would of thought they would look basically brand spanking new. 

What do you all reckon? Good deal or pass?

His pics he sent me:

I wouldn't buy those injectors at that price, imho. you need extensions to get FG injectors to work a B-series.

Ok cheers. I was a little doubtful over them. I did try him for $400’but he wasn’t keen. What is the difference between the b series and fg? Is it a different connector/plug?

I just read your thread again Sam, it's good stuff mate and I noticed that I didn't answer your question about the exhaust. 

 

I bought the dump, cat and y pipe through Garage7 and I then spoke to George from Venom who helped out with advice etc. 

 

Jeturbo supplied me with the matching catback at a good price. 

 

All up was a tad under $1600.

 

You've probably got it all sorted by now but I figured a reply was in order anyway.

I have pieced together a exhaust already.

Ive a used 4” nizpro dump,new 4” ballistic cat with 5” body 100 cell and a used mild steel 3.5” xforce. I’m somwhere around $900 without all gaskets and need flanges for the cat.

 

I might try put some time in this week to fit the new diff bushes and while the car is jacked up on stands I could install the cat back exhaust for the moment. I would do the full exhaust but have read numerous times it’s not wise unless I’m ready for a tune which is some time away yet. Or would I get away with fitting the dump pipe but still using the standard cat as some form of restriction in the exhaust?

The standard wastegate setup isn't great so it'll overboost if you floor it. 

 

You can install the lot of it but you'd have to control the boost to some degree with your right foot.

 

If you drive it hard every day then it's probably better to leave it stock for now.

Spewing I missed the rear brembos...

but anyways, I’ve got the more important front ones and they will be enough I’m sure.

I cleaned them up as much as I could care to today. I’ve decided I’m going to paint them anyway so will be sand blasting the original paint off. I left the colour choice up to my wife and she has come back with the candy green. #2 from that colour card chart I posted up earlier. So ordered that paint kit this arvo and will also be making up brembo stencils so I can paint the brembo logo on in black. 

 

The original paint is missing a lot of clear coat. Also checked and found the pistons and seals all appear to be fine but I think I’ll order new dust boots and seals anyway. They are 40mm and 44mm on both callipers.

 

Dust boots:

>20.4872.46 (40mm)

>20.4872.48 (44mm)

 

seals:

>05.5955.58 (40mm)

>05.5955.60 (44mm)

 

mandatory pics of current condition:

rotors and pads:

I can’t comment on what the RDA & ebc red stuff pads combination is like but I feel I might move these on anyway and buy new dba t3 rotors and matching dba xp pads.

 

For the front:

 

dba t3 (dba 42102s “355mm x 32mm”)

and dba pads to suit (db1935xp)

For the rears:

 

dba t3 (42108s “328mm x 26mm”)

Also I gave a thought to use the “SP” pads over the “XP” pads but not 100% sure just yet. The “XP” pads look very good all round according to that chart above..

Ok so going back to these injectors. The bloke has dropped his price a little more. At this stage he’s $500 plus $10 postage. For some reason I thought they came off a FG but must of been a different advert I’d seen else where.

They are in fact suited to b series with the longer style purple injector adapters.

they actually come of a bf F6.

 

he is still adamant that they are roughly 10k old as well.

only changed because of

bigger turbo and needing over 2200cc injectors to keep fuel up to it.

 

So I guess im still unsure if it’s a good deal or not?

 

Also another thing of interest to me is changing to a T04s style surge slotted .7ar 4” in 2.5” out compressor cover. 

 

I found a interesting thread on using said cover,backing plate and retainer bracket/clamps on standard turbo and his claimed results are interesting. I haven’t found any more really good info on this yet but here it is:

If you get them cleaned & flow tested there's more money, getting close to new price with NO warranty Usually new one's come with wiring plug adaptors which you'll have to source as well as the injector data for your tuner

Raceworks 1000cc are decent. Mine idle perfectly, never had an injector issue and they are decent price. They were installed by a very well known tuner who uses them on most of their cars...

 

I think these are the right ones

There are others with 2 yr warranty as well.

Yeah that’s also a good point to concider.

But even when new they would need to be flow tested anyways just to make sure

If you had to flow test injector dynamics you may as well just buy raw bosch, flow test them at various voltages and pw, then trim them in the tune.

 

With id's you're paying for a custom designed and made, flow and latency matched injector and the price reflects that. The specs, various calculators and spreadsheets are available through the id website.

 

Warranties are good and all but are not really a huge consideration when buying performance car parts imho.

 

It's always a risk buying second hand stuff but if they're good then it's a good deal and if they need cleaning or are stuffed then it's wasted money.

Wouldn't you be better off buying new injectors thru your tuner when he tunes it? Shouldn't be much difference in price if buying new yourself. You'll pay a little more thru the tuner usually, but then they're using an injector they prefer to tune with and if any issues they'll sort it out.

 

You'd have to get tuner to fit them anyway unless you planned to get your car towed there after fitting yourself, which is more cost involved and probably end up costing the same in the end?

I wouldnt buy used injectors but that's me. you save money buying used then get to brand new prices once you get them cleaned a flow tested again. basically pointless. 

 

I also bought the same cat years n years ago, only just recently sold it with my 4inch xforce. dam good quality cat.

I used a smaller pair of them about 7 years ago on my GT-P and can’t fault them. 

When I found this one for the price brand new I was cheering! Was less then half the price from sureflo them selves for that same size. Have no doubts about it anyways

Yeah I’d think so. There’s a newer version out now anyways I think I will probably use. The 1050x. Thinking ill go to pitlane which is about 5 hours away. And yeah heavy trailer behind the petrol prado will probably drink any savings away in fuel

Perhaps you should look at even bigger injectors if your thinking of trying E85 down the track Talk to your tuner to see what they suggest. There should be no reason why they can't get the bigger injectors to behave perfectly ( I say this because this is where I'm at, changing stuff for even bigger stuff! )

I’m pretty set on going to pitlane so I’ll discuss with mick as we get on. Injectors and tune using pcmtech it seems with the brief conversation I’ve already had with him.

Had a bit of time yesterday evening and today so started on the brembos. Had a mate sand blast them and coated with the calliper paint kit I purchased from bcs paints.

Turned out nothing like the paint chip but I still don’t mind the colour. Definitely not going to stand out with a lot of pop like I was kind of expecting but maybe not such a bad thing either..

Heres some pics of the progress:

First coat of silver base:

Then I let it sit over night and plugged away at it further over various parts of today waiting for layers to dry in out 25+ degree day today:

Then masked up for the brembo stencils:

Waited about 10 mins after the last hit of black and peeled off the stencil:

And then it was on to the final step of clear:

Then mounting to the car which is pretty straight forward after giving plenty of time to dry:

Keen to see how they look in the daylight. Also due to give the car a wash and light detail and coat of wax hopefully tomorrow if I get off work early.

Are the 6boost manifolds the same for b series through to fg?

 

my brother is keen to change his set up on his fg f6 and use the pro mod manifold with BorgWarner 400sxe.

 

so that leaves me open to his manifold and BW s366 turbo for cheap
