  1. Surely you would give it to your tuner and let him play with the max RPM while he's tuning it? If you're chasing max RPM then max HP should be the limiting factor. Let your tuner decide when upping the RPM no longer has any benefit.
  2. I say this as the owner of a c34 RS4S, try somewhere nearer to $7k. Unfortunately no matter how nice, people just aren't after these things. Carsales is a terrible guage of what a vehicle is worth. Everthing on there is waaaaaaaay overpriced.
  3. I'm confident this is the first ever time anyone has ever asked about making power with an RB in this whole forum. Amazing. We're really breaking new ground! Wait, you're planning on doing the work yourself yet clearly have absolutely no idea what's required to make the power you want? K.
  4. I bought a clutch for RHD last year. Easy and price was red hot.
  5. @Vulture Motorsport @VultureMotorsport Still supplying intercoolers? I'm keen on a 600x300x76, pref with a turned back outlet for a return set up. But will make do with a standard exit.
  6. Only way to do it is call the financier. I work in asset finance. I can guarantee it's the only way cause every lender is different.
  7. If you ever get pulled over and the copper questions it, just say you ferry back to Vic regularly to see family.
  8. My dad lives in NSW and his car is registered in Vic. Has been for 10 years. Heck we had a car registered in QLD that we drove in Vic for 15 years without issue as well. You don't really need to change the rego. No one will give a shit.
  9. Will you be visiting Victoria regularly by any chance? "Yes officer, I've moved to Tasmania but I catch the ferry back to Victoria every month or so to visit family and for work." And leave it registered in Vic.
  10. I just went through this. Ended up getting a Nismo Coppermix twin from RHD Japan. Very happy. I had an Exedy twin in it before that. Wasn't a big fan and it didn't last, even with only 245rwkw.
  11. Bwaaaaahahahahahahahahaha!!!!! VW = quality....that's HILARIOUS!!!!
  12. CVTs are awesome. I'd give the Levorg a test. Otherwise wagons have been killed by the SUV crew. Shame, I love wagons.
  13. What spec in particular? Can you please post the VIN?
  14. Brilliant cars. Factory service intervals are 10,000ks.
  15. I play this with G29 on PC. The f**king oversteer out of corners drives me mental. Turn in fine, through corner fine, coming out, wooooop, here comes the tail and there's nothing I can f**king do to catch it! Oh look, I'm nosed into the wall at a right angle. After doing some Googling it would seem this is a very, VERY common issue. The rear needs to be catchable. As it is now the moment it starts to go you're a passenger. I do like Nurburgring in a V8 Supercar though....right up until the rear overtakes the nose
  16. For simplicity go internal. External means you'll need a new manifold, dump pipe, wastegate, plumbing so on and so forth. To go drive in drive out with a new external gated turbo you're probably talking $6k including turbo. To do it internal you're looking at half that including turbo. (That's JUST to buy the turbo and have it fitted - NOTHING ELSE) Note, you're going to need a hell of a lot more than just a turbo to hit your power goal. 350kw is going to be a $10k-$15k spend. Turbo Cooler Injectors ECU Exhaust Coilpacks Clutch AFM Filter Fuel pump Fitting parts Tuning I suggest you stop worrying about specifics, ie. which turbo, and spend the next 6 months reading and researching these forums as to what you're getting yourself into. It's clear you have absolutely no idea so you need to research like a madman. Start researching for a well regarded workshop near you who you will get to do the actual work and then work with them, as well as what you can learn here, and start buying all the pieces you'll need to complete the jigsaw (after lots of research). If you rush into it and start hanging all sorts of random shit off your engine, you'll end up spending $25k and you'll get a shit outcome. Research, patience and knowledge is your friend.
  17. Both those are overkill. An ATR43SS is the turbo you seek. http://www.hypergearturbos.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=72_75&product_id=57
