Edit first post...hi all, im heading back up to L'ton 2morrow, not for a retune (although i just had my new turbo fitted/fkn awesome and angry sounding!) although it wont be to far away, just decieded to hold off until i deciede what injectors i will go with, then i'll change the fuel, have injectors fitted and Z32afm done all at the same time. anyway getting off the topic, I have a turbo we took of a mates car to replace with a bigger one, now, when he bought the car the guy insisted it had a hi flow turbo, i just happened to have my stock 33 turbo handy to compare them and there doesnt seem to be much difference, im even thinking it might be a 33 stock turbo, but anyway anyone with some knowledge who could have a look 2morrow would be welcomed! I will be there about 10ish until late afternoon, if i cant get insight from a sau member i guess i will take it to brad sherrif and see if he will take a look/identify for me, as its no longer wanted by its current owner (he would like to recoupe some $$ towards his new turbo) and i have offered to sell it for him once it is propperly identified, so if youre about in L'tn 2morro and can help, shoot me a mssge on 0413239099 and i'll meet with you somewhere, cheers Damo

hey all, I'm heading up to L'ton tomorrow to have my car tuned by Brad at Duggan & Parker, dropping the car off at 10:45 am and have some time to kill after that. I dont know/havent met any of you guys up that way (except for ben who i recently spoke to over the phone about his tune) would be good to check out some other rides and milk u guys for information/experiences with modding your'e rides. anyway if your;e about let me know, cheers Damo

was my car still out there? GTR with no front bar, undercoat black bonet and guard, and getting semi slicks fitted?

I'll probably be out there this afternoon getting my car and old tyres.

depends, my tyres aren't in Launceston, if he came home through the Frankfourt H/Way I could send it with him.

that explains why duggan and parker workers didnt know anything about any tyres! got the car back, pretty happy, just broke the 200kw mark (just a safe tune for now), heading back up in a week or and having it re tuned on bp ultimate, brad stated he would be happy to push it a bit more when it is retuned i could be looking at an extra 30-50 kw... wooooot!

Damo, Thats a pretty decent amount considering it's only a safe tune. hopefully with a new turbo and 98ron you should be able to join the 300kw club.

sav man, do you want to just drop them into Bursons Launy and they will send them accross to me. just Att. David Guest, C\- Burson Auto Parts Burnie.

Well, its that time.... Last of the mods for now; Z32AFM and 555 injectors, tune/dyno run. looking forward to it, as last time i went up i was only running premium fuel/standard turbo and Brad was only prepared to do a safe tune. This time round I have the Vg3o + inj and afm as well as supporting mods. I think the biggest hiccup will be trying to get in the driveway! My new front bar is extremly low. Im actually trying to get a hold of DJRIFT as i wanna pick up a tailsshaft for a mate, if anyone knows him well enough could they contact him so he can forward his mobile or tell me where he works. (he did tell me sometime ago, but i have forgotten). If anyones going to be about 2morrow let me know, cheers Damo

well back from getting the work done, and tune... well sort of , work was performed but they neglected to tell me that the dyno wasnt operational! fark! it had a tune without going on the dyno, "a road test tune" so back up on the 17th to get it dynoed and see what kw's she is pumping out the one posative thing that was said was that it felt strong, so i guess that makes me feel slightly better with the situation, thanks to DJRIFT for meeting me with the part my mate needed, cheers Damo

    • The old "Gentleman's agreement".  They all kept publishing that number to avoid government intervention. They all kept pushing over it to be quicker than the other guy.   It's why I'll say it's smart the Gen4 Supra was more suited/targetted to taking on freeway runs, than taking on the GTR directly. Nissan and Yoda rivalry slightly more apart receiving a little less criticism compared to the Holden Vs Ford in the years gone by with the likes of the GTHO etc.
    • The GTT's Neo actually did produce ~206kW at the flywheel. The 34GTR's 26 really did not produce 206kW at the flywheel. By the time the 34 came around the 26 was likely up around 230-240 kW, and probably could have been more. The Japanese manufacturer's had an agreement to not sell any cars that made more than 206kW (actuall, their agreement was expressed in the stupid non-metric German ps units which is essentially horsepower, and the numerical value in the agreement was 280ps). So Evos, Supras, GTRs, 3000GTs, and so on, all had official 206kW power outputs published, and all made variously larger numbers than that. Even the R32 GTR made a decent margin over the official number, all the way back in 1989. As you'd bloody well hope for a TT 2.6l 24v engine running ~12psi of boost.
    • See, Euro trash. Ha ha ha. And I have to say, you nearly nailed the description of yourself. But you can't be elitist if you can't look down on people. Or see what's on top of the Fridge.
    • Manufacturers quote power at the engine, we quote power at the wheels, which will always be lower due to drivetrain losses.  
    • As someone with an EV, who also does Bris to Sydney road trips, I can get from Bris to Syd in the same time, and a shit tonne cheaper in the EV vs the Petrol car.   It's a slight change for SOME people in how you'd do the trip, but in reality, even for the cranky people who just want to haul ass and only stop once, it's still doable in the EV, it might make the people who are so dead set on pretending their in an F1 race pit stop take another 30 minutes to get get to Sydney. Then there's all the people who do a road trip like that over 2 days. Those people can charge the car over night! 😮 zero impact then!!! 😮   and then running around the city, from 0-100 it's like driving a gas guzzling sports car, with it always in gear for power, except, you pay only $3 / 100km to drive, when driving spiritedly! considering fuel around $2 a litre, it means still $9 cheaper per / 100km than a Hybrid Camry... (And I have a lot of experience on the Hybrid Toyodas too. Good cars, wanting the Hybrid Fortuner or Prado when it comes out for the missus). Driving the EV around, the other thing I never spend time in my life doing, is going somewhere to fuel up.    I will agree 100% EVs are not for everyone.  In fact, those who don't do lots of KMs each week, I'd tell them to be buying a Hybrid or full ICE. If you want a track/race car, ICE.   The other thing when everyone races about long road trips and EVs, the reality is, people rarely take them. Most families, might do a Bris to Sydney style trip ONCE every four or five years. I used to do that trip, plus add to Canberra, and Batemans Bay in the same trip. And by used to, I'd do that about 3 or 4 times a year, for a few years straight. Ya know what I do now? I get on a bus. And by bus, I mean one that holds over 100 people, and can do about 900kmh. f**k boring road trips!         Topic of Camrys being driven by scary people, I see wayyyy less of that in Brisbane. In fact, I'll say in Bris I don't look for any vehicles in particular except for old 4WDs like GQ or 80 series cruisers, and modern dual cabs. They're often maniacs. Other than that, every other car on the road has a 50 to 75% chance they're high, using a phone, asleep at the wheel, or just a f**king idiot with no perception of the world outside of them. Oh, actually, I do keep an eye out for the white Toyota Camrys. Mainly because they put sore loser lights in them. If they get beaten in a drag race or overtaken on the freeway, they start flashing red and blue!
