MLR's Bogan cruise ship

they do in 4th. When tuning with HPtuners need to "activate" lock up but can have trouble staying in lock up mode on a chassis dyno.
Good result from a"standard" ls1. So when is blower being ordered?

The shift kit will have it hit the limiter in 3rd, is that the same as locked up?

Paul said he just ran it up in 3rd (1:1?) and checked fueling, which was slightly rich, he said he could spend some time advancing the timing a bit to get a little more, but that it's not really cost effective to retune it for a small gain.

 

I think it will stay like this.

It's a comfy cruiser.

I will wait for the apocalypse to finish then look at something "more sporty" then.

Or, buy a 5.0 Mustang and blow it, maybe????

I'm f**king hopeless.

New shoes are on, 275 on the rear are #verysortofflush

Also stopped at Strathfield car audio to see about replacing the stereo.

f**k it, that pioneer thing will do, the guy is installing it as I type.

To all audiophiles, as long as I can play the Cramps, the Misfits, some Leonard Cohen and can find ABC classic radio I'm fine.

The headunit is mainly for Google maps and the phone.

This ISO business sure has affected you!

LOL, it actually has quite a bit, BUT, if I follow my drills and use PPE I'll be fine.

The car boot is full of hand sanitiser, black latex gloves, P2 masks and a good folding chair for when I need to wait somewhere, you need to be comfortable when sitting in the sun watching "Fringe" for hours on end during the apocalypse.

Those new Hankook tyres are damn good as well.

In other news: I'm thinking of swapping the middle 2 mufflers for some "cherry bombs".

I think the car needs more "loud and obnoxious".

Horray

New blinker stalk = fixed cruise control 

You cannot have a cruise ship without auto-pilot

And....as the #Bogancruiseship has a tow ball, I can now find a real project

Maybe a motorbike for something different, and cheap (ish)

May I suggest a speedboat?

Jetski is the obvious choice

Yeah nah, I've had a go on a few jetskis but cannot really see their point.

It's either going to be a car or bike 

I do keep looking at MX5's, ?, a NA or NB maybe?

Depends on how much work you want to do. The NB is basically a better NA. The NB Turbos are a hidden gem but getting pricey now. 
The NC's are the fastest base, but you'd need a fair amount of work, or FI or a 2.5L swap to really put them ahead of a NB with a turbo (or factory turbo).

For max simplicity though, 86 is (again) the answer. If you want something different buy my Renault considering you can tow it ?. Unfortunately I cannot say buy my gf's turbo MX5 as i will be swiftly murdered.

LS Swap MX5

Na...it would be fun, but end up real costly.

This

I'm thinking a bobber type build, I'm to old and arthritic for a sports bike.

Maybe a Triumph Speedmaster bobbered and murdered out.

Fark, who am I kidding, It could end up being anything.....
