Have really enjoyed my time in skylines ( especially the GTR ) but I am staying focused ( great pun ) on my goal this time... as much as I don't like holdens... I need a ute, the dirt bike is getting very sad that it's been neglected. No one wants to see a sad dirt bike.

I agree, although I do not agree about the Holden part. Ford utes >> holden utes. XR6t FTW.

GL with the sale.

BTW, Focuses are ball tearing little cars. If only I could bear to live with a front driver!

Well it's either an SS or an XR6T to be fair. Leaf springs are a bit of a concern, but XR6T engine power and econ is awesome... XR8 is out, apparently it's an engine out job to put extractors on ?! no deal.

Yeah not gonna lie, front wheel drive is a downfall... I don't care what ford says. This car certainly can break traction quite easily, especially with the extra power, that said, it's got decent tyres and a test drive will show a decent amount of grip for FWD. Certainly once the speed is up, it just gets stronger and pulls very hard in the higher gears. It's a [email protected], but a very flat power curve with boost coming on very early, feels less peaky than my other I've had with similar power. very responsive.

I'd prefer leaf springs for towing/carrying. Wheels don't toe out when the weight sinks the back. Not to mention the XR towing capacity far exceeds the SS. And I'm pretty sure there are extractors ut there which don't require the engine out now for XR8s. Look at Herrod, Di Filippo and Blue Power and the prices of exhausts, fitted, are much the same as 6's and SS's.

And in all reality the handling of the XRs is as good as the SSs. There's little between them and they both have their strengths and weaknesses..

Didn't get any offers over the weekend, so put the price back up on carsales to over 20k. The stats show I'm getting more hits with the price just over 20k than just under... weird.

Anyway, almost certainly will sell the dreamscience hand unit which will have 4 lives left on it after I sell the car, so will keep you posted if you'd like.

People don't seem to like the idea of a tuned car, so will flash back to stock before sale.

    • TCU is enroute, should be here on Monday. Have just paid for a transmission locally, they've got to pull it out of the car and should be with me on Friday. Just getting little bits and pieces I need for wiring. Thinking about using a small bulkhead connector to run the transmission wiring through the tunnel as the trans plug is quite big.  So all going well i should have the box dummy fitted up next weekend and start wiring.
    • sure, just PM me your email....
    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
