  1. Not yet matt_lamb_160. It will get pulled down and most likely rebuilt after I get the barra in and running. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  2. Success. Have got a bf turbo barra motor with all the bolt ons as well as all the bits like loom, ecu etr to make it run. Motor should be delivered to my place by the end of next week. Now let the fun begin. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  3. Been a while since I posted so I thought an update was in order. Had a guy who builds turbo motors come and have a look at the bitch and he was straight up with me about what was required. He estimate of what it would cost to rebuild the motor, set up a decent engine management system and all the other crap necessary to make a reliable street car has forced me to look at other options. My thoughts now are leaning towards a turbo barra transplant, most likely from an fg falcon. The search has now begun for an fg turbo motor with all the bolt ons, computer and loom.

  4. Almost ready to bolt the rear brakes back together. Gave them a coat of paint after I put a kit through them. Looking a lot better Next on the agenda will be having a look at the spaghetti called wiring under the dash. Front seats will be out as will half the dash. Not looking forward to doing it.

  5. Have started to do a few things on the old girl - finally. Rear brakes were locked on so removed the rear calipers ready for a refurbed set to go on so I can move the bitch around. Checked out the exhaust system while under there and looks like a new 3" system will be required as the existing one is full of holes. This could take a while longer than I expected.
  6. Thanks for the advice XPT. Will do as you suggest<br /><br />Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk<br /><br />
  7. Picked up the intercooler yesterday.<br /><br /><br /><br />Any advice on where to get the piping from? After the motor is sorted, would it be easier to mock up the plumbing in pvc pipe before buying the pipework?<br /><br />Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk<br /><br />
  8. Would a 600 x 300 x 76 intercooler be adequate?<br /><br />Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk<br /><br />
  9. I don't believe half the rubbish I've been told about this car. It is satans bastard child and shall be treated as such when I get around to pulling it down. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  10. Not too sure about the bit about it having factory dry ice set up though Jack.... Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  11. Finally manage to contact the girl that owned the car. Screen shits of answers she has given me so far. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  12. It was indeed MSPSI. The car has only done 17000km since it was built. Rego lapsed in Feb 2008. You're right about the lights though. I have all the plastic pieces needed to repair the dash. Will start pulling it apart when I finish cleaning out my shed which should happen in the next few weeks. If it gets too messy, I will look around for a new loom as suggested XF0747.

  13. Just been looking at photos of XFO747. Nice look and tidy engine bay. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks XPT. Reasonably cheap as well. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  15. Reading up on intercoolers on a few forums. A couple of xf's were running 600x400x75 with 3" inlet and outlets. Anyone got an opinion or some guidance on what size I should be looking at? Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
