  1. X falcons I line up the front axle with the 1st crossbar on the rope rail on my trailer (about 3" forward from where the BA is on the trailer), I've found the rocker springs like front pre load on the trailer other wise you get the rocking in the tow vehicle, I usually drive forward till rear suspension on tow vehicle is compressed between 1"-2" from unloaded (depending on tow vehicle). on the wheel bearing bit, planing to move my spare tie from the draw bar to the LHS & mount it on a stub axle so I have a pre greased spare ready to go for if I have one fail, Bros mate as done this on his race trailer. & build a tool box for the draw bar for my straps & winch battery(s)
  2. I used 4mm twin core wire,
  3. most likely its the standard XE head, XD/XE heads don't have any ID between port 1&2, like the later heads, So open chamber 57ish CC this is what the C2 mark is like
  4. I like the rear chromies suits it well
  5. I run a dynotec(from precision) stage 2 214/214 @0.050" .495/.495" 111LSA in my daily XF ute, new cam ,lifters & timing chain, ported weber, pacemakers 2.5" exhaust. still has stock valve train, does really want performance valve springs but has done 40,000km as is & towed about 30 cars, regularly gets 11.06-11.2lt/100km highway (col auto 2.92 diff). valve float is 3800ish
  6. my shortened diff was a ebay fluke. I can remember SIC351 (orange XD sedan) had 5.75" on 10" rims (4.75" on 8"). I have 255/60r15's on it now, has heaps of room. I did also fit the 295's to my XE sedan & was only 3-5mm from the lower control arm. Pics of clearance in these threads on xfalcon also some before shortened diff with 275's I've been thinking of doing the same with some Spak rims except maybe 9" wide, for 275's
  7. Thats a Cain 4 barrel manifold that I polished
  8. Raced at the AFF Drag Nationals again this year with the black ute, Bolted the slicks on hoping to beat my 15.0017/94 PB I did nearly 2yrs ago with bunch of wheelspin on street tyres and drop into the 14's. But the ute didn't play ball and was down on power, would only just pulled 4000rpm in top during the burnout & was like it was hitting the limiter at like 5100-5200rpm at times, only managed to get a best of 16.25/85.52 out of it & a bunch of 16.42-16.45's, but managed to outrun the falcon I was against in the last round with a 0.429 R/T which was nice, have tried playing with timing but keeps wanting to overheat & ping, still need to rezero the balancer as when it was built they (powerbond) didn't zero it properly and its saying I'm running like 34-48 deg of timing at idel, wondering if also headgasket, I am so over this turd of late.
  9. Well the utes still going along has been my daily for last few months, Engines still sitting on the stand & is nearly finished but from my figures only has 10.1:1 comp, was aiming for 10.5-11:1, just needs rear cam plug, rear main seal, finish off some dissy bits, retorque rockers, rocker cover, fit intake change collector to 3", then take next door to the engine dyno. I have also brought a ported XD head from Sean(clevo120Y) & am considering changing everything over to another block with 15cc pistons with Seans head for which should get me in the comp range I'm after & head suits this build more then my CNC head, also thinking about pulling the CNC head off & re CCing it as was measured by Heath at 49cc which is a bit big for a C2. Too many Ideas/plans, not enough decisions. I've also polished up a cain manifold, wanted to have a crack at polishing so figured it will do the job, & I have already clear coated my aussie speed one.
  10. My dragway indys on my black ute are 4.25" backspace & where to close to outer rear gaurd before i fitted the XY width BW diff with a 275, My 14x8's where 4.5" backspace and fitted a 295 under my ute. (If pics don't work look in photobucket bug thread for a fix for your browser) Dragway's 4.25" 14x8 4.5"
  11. Thanks works great

  13. Here's the flow figures from my CNC ported C2 head with 1.84" intake valve,
  14. This is what I did on my Black XE ute,
  15. By no means am I having a go at anyone, or against others work, & happy for you to keep any detailed pictures to your self if wanted. I made sure when posting pictures of my CNC ported xflow head to not give away any detailed pics of the ports, just a pic of chamber (which I did myself) showing CNC grooved bowls. as specially since they have there own R&D in that port design & its not my own work to show. & wouldn't even have a clue at its CSA... I don't see posting numerical figures of a port as anything major, as specailly when you freely post flow numbers. but there's no worries here.. I like reading & compering on engines to others, against the build figures & to what they end up producing at the end of the day, to further my knowledge. I'm even very interested to see what power my xflow makes in its current form giving the my cylinder head flows up to 250.8cfm @ .650" & flows 236cfm at peak cam lift as where normally a head flow for a similar engine Ive seen to be around 200-215cfm. Have a good week, catch ya's another day.
