  1. So when the tuner askes me what my goals are in relation to boost, my answer should be.....MAD DOSE....
  2. The eldest girl got on the turps and left her car at Menai. Obviously me and the Mrs had to go pick it up because she is to lazy to do it herself and her mum will not say no to her. In saying that, I rarely say no to the Mrs, I might be dumb but I'm not stupid.
  3. It's a silencer. IMO it's a bandaid for poor design. Take it out and its louder, put it in and its quiter, quiter due to restriction.
  4. Rims LM GT4? Unless knock offs?
  5. Strange that it wasn't stripped? Logan, the bogan central of Queensland, to dumb to make a profit off crime..
  6. R32-31-30-34-33 Yes, other than a 32 GTR I would rather a R31 GTS-R than any of the others. 30, watched it racing at Bathurst, would like a RS 31, watched it racing at Bathurst, would like a GTS-R 32, watched it racing at Bathurst, would like a GTR 34, looks OK, designed by a kid? 33, I had a boat, has not aged well, reminds me of a Toyota Soarer. On a related subject, lots of trash talk with no lap times. Do any of these cars actually run? In finishing up, I wish I didn't sell my 31 Wagon, that thing was mint...😥
  7. Nice job, pipe bending is tricky, I use to do a bit of it years ago instrument fitting, I had swaglok fittings on all my stuff. Looking forward to start up
  8. The engine would, everything back from the gearbox though? I've been in a couple of boosted twins, the added small increase in power makes a big difference. Whilst the turbo had all the whooshy, the supercharger just felt so much smoother in it's power delivery. Anyways, time to start squirreling away cash in the bottom draw away from prying eyes. What she don't know can't hurt me...I hope...
  9. I 100% agree, Toyota 86 = MX5, but, if your flippant with your money they an be "more fun". Just like a 500hp Skyline is "more fun" than a 300hp one. What I initially wanted was a S15, but most are trash or, in the case of a mint car low km car, like I wanted, at least 30k ish, for a old car. If I got a S15 they are pretty slow stock, and handle average, so work would need to be done anyway, albeit alot less than the 86 to eek out some more power. So, in the end the only cheap new RWD manual Coupes that are available are the twins. Will I lose money, hell yeah, no where near as much as I lost with my R33 adventure though. Right now my car is as fun as ten fun things, but everything can be improved. As long as gearboxes are not a consumable item I will be happy, hence a supercharger, as the torque produced down low is much less than a turbo. The weak link in the twins is the aisin.
  10. Would be prohibitively expensive to be reliable, and problematic for rego. Dropping $10-15k on the 86 is pretty stupid and hardly justifiable, dropping double that would be idiotic. I might be stupid, but I'm not a idiot (anymore)...
  11. It's been floating around for a few years, cost, $8.5k ish, install isn't tricky. Turbo (quality) costs roughly the same.
