  1. If you can still find them, PFC 97s would probably do it - with a lap or two to warm up....used to trim the 0460 shape in the more aggressive compounds they had, fairly regularly for another vehicle.....and believe they suited your caliper.
  2. It was the disclaimer on all sets sold, when I'm sure it was to prevent any moaning and whining in the event someone's set didn't get any life. One set here has taken punishment for most of this year, although when I spoke to them to get an idea of condition, rather than rely on an ebay ad, the mantra was repeated. They also had the 6758s in .85 A/R - I'd expect fewer of those in future though.
  3. Stu Kelly was the guy - wrote the name down for someone the other week who was sick of flange turbo issues on a circuit car, but he didn't want to go 2nd hand. Of course, can't find the link where I saw it now! These were the Roush ones, you might see if there's more coming into stock with the end of the season - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/272367099100?rmvSB=true
  4. They come and go a bit, so you have to keep your eyes open. Nothing I know of currently, other than possibly the 6758 in .64 @450 from someone in Indianapolis. Would have thought that turbo with the .85 indy housing would be pretty good for your application minimizing the EBP penalty. Wasn't looking for one and I didn't watch the end result, but there was a 7163 on ebay last week mid 300s with speed sensor, not listed under borg warner or EFR but indycar. That guy, I've bought several items in the past from, is mshindy, if it's listed in his feedback yet. He's had the Honda, cheater spec 9180 T4 welded to the manifold in the past too! The 7163s I got were earlier this year via Roush, were ex Penske...and I like to think, ex Will Power. Flanges are a bit of a pain - and hate machining stainless unless it's 303.
  5. I probably would have seen if you could get a swap of the "big" housing on the 6758 if mostly used for autocross. Prices you've paid seem a bit steep too! 7163 indy with the .85 v in/out picked them up for $US350 a while back, saw those .64 6758 being offered for $US450 in one ad recently too...but expect you could have bought for less. Are you buying a 2.84" flange somewhere off-the-shelf?
  6. If that image is your actual car, that toe base might give me some concern. Can think of several people who have built multiple sport sedans over the years who are usually up for a chat, without knowing where you are though, best to join the State club and someone should point you in the direction of who to consult. As mentioned though, most do it via software nowadays, even if they're more comfortable with a drawing board.
  7. Assume the 7163 aluminium chra is the same as the old 6758 indy car one...excluding the wheel diameters. Is there any possibility of BW supplying or producing them again?
  8. Nah, not the OP. The "wizard" earlier in the piece after 30/35 years still has certain self-destructive tendencies, amazing.
  9. Hear someone went to the big house for modifying things that go boom, boom... that might slow down progress perhaps?
  10. http://www.mtce.com.au/ Steve is an NDT specialist, if you don't want to take a packed lunch out there, he picks up at various workshops. If they're old magnesium ones, most of the time, safest to make them into hose reels! On the off chance they test any good, last thing you'd do is powder coat them unless the bike is a static display..
  11. Seems to be missing half a dozen springs. Should be reported to ebay for gross misrepresentation too.
  12. Ron Tauranac was big on dynamic and static balancing - and fastidious on runout to avoid exciting the tyres in his formula days. All the manufacturer's dealers trackside support balances as part of the service, so might as go with what they do. In the old motorcycle days and particularly mud races > very low pressures, pk screws were often run into the bead through the rim......which would make a nice industrial look on a car!
  13. You can test a wastegate easy enough with a pump, you'll have bleed past the valve, but should be lifting off the seat if it's working and the diaphragm is intact.
  14. Doubt you'd compare this to a road car system! Once you add the ECU, harness plus the power assist unit, probably closer to 10 than 5k on price too. Believe the Cootes have one in their car, so high downforce and lots of castor is probably where it would shine.
  15. Quality One Looms or Sideshow could probably help you out if you want to go all Deut$ch.
