Mugabetown - Whoretownin' At It's Worst.


Recommended Posts

That place is stupidly expensive. I got new stainless socket caps for the valley cover plus some other M6 and M8 stainless socket caps for $15 from my local bolt shop.

true, but I'm sure they will ahve the sizes that no one else has, and colours

Expensive. Yes. very very high quality good products and a phenomenal online range also yes :yes:


or just try Bunnings. You'd be surprised what you can find as quality bolts at very good prices.

Bunnings and Supercheap have a really poor range thats hard to find what you want, and their "high tensile" is very poor at best, be very cautious when using them where strength is required.

having said that, they have been helpful for basic bolts and bits and nicnacks

I also buy from USA military surplus fastener stores - mi spec, any pro will tell you fasteners aren't just fasteners :)

It amazes me how many people use ARP studs without an understanding of why and what makes them better.

My brother in in the airforce in Newcastle. the materials and toys he has on hand are amazing....and that's with a dodgy AU government military budget

Why?? Helping people even in the smallest way is a start :) giving blood is a good way, cos you help save 3 people with as little at 400ml blood. That's all they take. Painless and you get free food

You forget? I can't stand needles (think faint/vomit/me-def-no-likey). Fully appreciate those that can do it, but I definitely am not one for sticking my arm out for a positively terrifying experience :no:

fastersners aren't exactly in the same league as studs though

True that, which is why I separated the two sentences. The studs example was to indicate something easy and tangible that people can relate to as an easy SAU relevant example.

The most important part to the ARP answer is high quality material that has material data testing sheets containing stress diagrams, rolled threads and limited twisting during torqueing that gives a more consistent reading.

And as an engineer Peter knows all of this all too well :D lol

Nuts, bolts, studs and fasteners are actually pretty interesting, so much engineering involved.

almost conned him into building me a Titanium airbox......but then he realised how big the sheet had to be :(

There's a really good friend of mine in Amberley, who's an avionics tech in the RAAF. He got the guys to fabricate an amazing battery holder from Titanium - Best I have ever seen. Those guys know there shizz.

He's a Forum member, but cannot access his old defence email to log on again. Pity, he's an invaluable source of info.

See if you can get the sheet from these guys for him to fabricate http://www.performancemetalsaustralia.com.au/

    • VP race fuel like VP 109 ron unleaded is a waste of money compared to E85. Just go flex fuel setup so you can run on pump unleaded or E85 all without draining tanks or switching tunes. You go VP race fuel you will have to change tune when using it, then change back to a pump unleaded tune. VP109 for example will support about the same boost and timing increaes as E85, but it requires the afr's to be a lot leaner than E85 but richer than pump unleaded.
    • Whats your budget? Maybe call Nispro in QLD for quote - they build a lot of VQ and have a turbo kit in development - but id say at least 20k to do it right - oh actually maybe do LS swap will be cheaper but....hmm  im a purist - so id rather stick to VQ35DE or whats the point lol.... just my opinion - do what u want. its your car  
    • Ok sorry I should rephase my question. But good answer haha.  How can I make 400whp that isn't using nitrous. 
    • dyno run would be on VP race fuel or e85 / e98, E85 is not easily accessible by me. Closest pump is 30 min in a direction I do not travel. So while I will go out to get it. It will also get pump gas 93 octane is highest avilable in US so overall power will be down if mix fuels  e50, e30, e10 ect 
    • Cheapest way? Spray. A wet kit with 200hp jets could be up and running for less then $2000. Then its about $16 per pound when its time to refill your bottle.
