    How much do you think a Barra swap all up would be ? I’m happy to do the work, but I know nothing so I’ll still be paying someone just to have the privilege of helping if they even let me. I have thought about it though, and it would be fun to drive. It probably all comes down to lockdown fucking with my head and being so bored at home. Like in my normal life I like a reliable car, not cop bait. But I still want the xh to sound good, go well, and Turn a few heads for a dirty old falcon.

    I’ve definitely got the space to keep it stock in a carport under a cover. I’ll fish oil the doors and let it sit. The xh is tidy enough but it’s been a work Ute so the differences are pretty clear. Beat up tub, scratched paint all over the show, but no accident and it drives nice. I guess I was just hoping I could make it fun to drive, but keeping it stock feels like a better option after all things mentioned. once I get the roady on it for clubs I’ll chat with the guys and get a price on removing the gas, and go from there. Got the new wheels arriving any day now for the xh, maybe that in itself will make me love the thing again.

    New Ute

    Gday boys, bought a new xg and I’m trying to work out which of the utes to sink some money into in terms of beefing up the horses. will the xg have more room for improvement than the xh ? Or vice versa, and what sort of mods should I be looking at ? I was about to put hurricane extractors and a new exhaust set up on the xh, and hoping to pair it with a bigger cam and chip, but I don’t want to waste money I don’t have to here. theyre both dual fuel and mechanically they’re holding on for their age. km’s 300,000 for the xg, and 350,000 for the xh. am I right in assuming nothing will swap over between the two ? cheers boys. attached a couple of pics of the new xg

    Buzz over 2000 rpm

    That’s damn interesting... I really thought revs impacted consumption. Thanks for the insight dean ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Buzz over 2000 rpm

    I’ve sort of noticed the same, but because she’s a rough old Ute mechanically the injectors for my fuel are shot, so I only really run lpg currently but it seems to go about the same speed whether I’m on the high way or driving round town, stupid Victoria and it’s 80 zones means my revs are sitting at that 2000-2500 mark a lot more than they would be doing 100kph. I’m going to get my exhaust sorted Monday, and get the guys to take it for a drive and see what they think it could be. Compared to my old xh, this thing does seem a little sluggish and unresponsive, but I feel like that just comes down to her doing 350,000 and running on gas... hm more money [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey Dave thanks for the info, do you have any figures on lpg ? I’m taking it into the mech on Monday and go from there, but the lpg figures would be good just for my own piece of mind Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No buzz in neutral, but it smells like it’s running rich. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Buzz over 2000 rpm

    Hey boys just wondering if anyone has any clues as to why I’m getting a buzz in my engine bay when reving into the next gear. 4 Spd auto, but the box has seen better days. my exhaust is shot but it seems that the buzz is coming from the actual bay itself. absolutely clueless with this stuff any help would be much appreciated. cheers boys

    Manual box

    That’s to be expected I guess, good news about the other models fitting ! I’ll take my auto to the mechanic and find out what else is needed and try and work a reco into the budget. I don’t want a 10 second Ute, just a responsive and fun to drive project, so the 6k+ Barra conversion just doesn’t make sense to me. If anyone has any information on improving my current set up by 100kw or so that would be really helpful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
