    How to I.D a xd,xe v8 brake booster

    Cheers man, yes I did read that thread it’s a great write up. I don’t think I would be comfortable doing the job myself. if it failed it’s on me, I don’t think I could handle if that caused me to crash my xd lol. I would love to see one of those 290mm brake boosters they would be freaking huge

    How to I.D a xd,xe v8 brake booster

    Wow well that’s good news, I have contacted multiple company’s and could not get a straight answer. I have also parted out lots of xd and xe’s v8 and 6cyl and never noticed a size difference. Looks like I’ll have no problems getting mine reco’d then hopefully lol
  3. Hey guys, just wondering if any one here has the knowledge how to tell the difference between xd xe v8 and 6cyl brake boosters. I have been told the v8 boosters are 290mm and the 6cyl ones are 220-230mm, I have never seen a 290mm booster before on a xd I might of maybe on a xf or xg.
  4. $120 sounds pretty good to reseal it. The gearbox works fine just weeps oil when it's hot
  5. Hey man, thanks for the link I'll give them a buzz and see what they say or suggest. It also turns out I know someone who had a toploader reco'd by them $2800 and he is very happy.
  6. Yeah not super keen on a t5. I have a voice in my head telling would it work out better for me to just sell the box and shifter to xy owner ect. Then maybe go tko 600. The other voice tells me just go a built auto. F#ck I hate this lol.
  7. It's weird, if you want a auto built there are a heap of names that come to mind plus it's good hp per dollar, but not the same with manuals. It's almost tempting to sell the manual conversion to a GT enthusiast and just go auto. But I'd really like this ute to stay manual
  8. Hey lads, I currently have my 4 speed toploader out of my ute at the moment as it was weeping oil from almost every seal from not being driven. Does any one know or has any one dealt with manual trans builder in Melbourne, I just need a seal kit put through the toploader and maybe a check over? i have heard auto trans guys won't touch them and I also had a quote to reco it! They said like $3500 I was Like what do I get for that? And they where like good old used parts with a new seal kit and bearing kit! What the fuck that's almost the price of a new tko 600

    There was Australian company that ran this test vic based I think. They bolted a Cleveland water pump to a clear peice of Perspex glass on a cooling system jig of some sort. you had full view of what was going on behind the water pump they spun it at low rpm and then the took it up to mid to high rpm's and that is where it was having major issues. So there is already a solution out there, if this is your problem! I just can not remember the company name. I would call someone like pavtek or dandy engines ect

    I have heard of guys having problems with the water pump spinning to fast, by increasing the coolant flow it does not allow enough time for It to cool when passing through the radiator. i think the fix was a bigger water pump pulley maybe a chev one from memory? Or this could just be a old school thing to do that never actually fixed the problem, I'm only going off what others have done

    Far out man you are really having some problems. Hopefully it's sorted out soon and you get to enjoy driving it.

    Holley + Cleveland = Flooding

    Hey mate, I have the same problem with my xd ute it's a warm 302 Clevo with a quick fuel 650dp. I spray aero start down the carb so she fires first go and doesn't flood and runs perfect from then onwards, I put it down to the carby being over jetted for the motor and a poor battery and a shit starter motor. I will eventually get a hi torque starter motor and the Correct size Jetting to fix this but for now aero start for the first start of the day and she is all good.

    Haltech Ecu price and suppliers vic

    Yeah he definitely can get them, I'm trying to work out the cost but if they come on sale I'll buy one just to save where I can.
  15. Hey guys, I'm currently looking at the elite haltech range of Ecu's for my twin cam turbo xe. I have been looking for suppliers that advertise prices and can't seen to find much, so I'm wondering what are the best company's to use has any one purchased one lately? Cheers Scott
