Ride: Bionic BA MkII XR6

Power: 175 rwkw

Location: Perth
WA, Australia

Well- spent the day with the boys at BPT Motorsport in Wangara. Terry really looked after me.
Fitted a 20% underdrive kit and a lower opening temp thermostat.
Then put it on the dyno - with the mixer ring in, best it could do was 155.
So then we took it out to see how much of a blockage it was causing.....and managed

175.2 rwkw !!!!!

I am very happy !!!!

That translates to 235 KW at the fly by my calcs - not far off the 240T

The mixer ring is back in - and even with it in the car has so much urge now !
Responsiveness and acceleration is fantastic
I am now looking forward to the change to injected LPG so I can lose the ring... :)


If you are in Perth I can without hesitation recommend BPT Motorsport.

Thanks Guys !

No - but the combination of underdrives/powerstat/tune increased my drive in drive out power from 157rwkw to 175rwkw

the lpg wont do any damage to the engine if anything it is better for the engine then petrol. just thought id throw that in. in the mean time you can get a better mixxer from some one like gas research, dunno if they do them for the BA's but it will dramatically decrease the restriction and will also be much better on gas without the addition of the gas injection

Yep - aware of that - but I want to remove the mixer entirely by going injected.
Justa matter of time

Well - I still haven't changed the gas system

But for the same effect - I have unplugged the gas system and swapped over the plastic from the intake to the throttle body - so now I have no gas - but I have unrestricted flow (ie no mixer ring stealing half of it)

Car is great - it's a 20% increase over what it was !

I'll priobably put the old bits back on this weekend so I can go back to cheaper gas running (BP Ultimate aint cheap!) - but it has been fun ! And it is a good encouragement to get the new LPG system

Might be cheaper for you in Melbourne but here in perth if you get a flash box with tune its around the $1400 mark. If you go straight custom tune to the ecu its $900 this is what I did, figured I wouldnt want to run stock settings ever whats the point? Plus ive noticed that that fuel lasts a bit longer since the custom tune thats if im not hammering it lol.

Hey the magnetic drift oil filter!
Is it just good for the oil or does it increase power??

you dont really need a magnetic oil filter but I do it as more of a precaution of cleaning the oil of any filaments. The oil I buy is top grade stuff any how you've might have heard of it "royal purple". $100 for 5 liters. But hey I figured if I give it the best it will give me the best! I guess thats why it has never gave me any problems what so ever as it has 182,000 K's on it and still running like its new, well actually better than when it was new now, bought it second hand bone stock and was running your basic fluids. I believe you look after your car it will look after you, yea it may sound expensive but usually when something breaks down it will cost a lot more and wont last nearly as long. I guess I think of my car as a human body you feed it crap its going to perform like crap!

I only just got onto the royal purple stuff, 5L for $90, i tried it out as i have this ticking noise but it didnt fix it :( i will prolly stick with the stuff anyways, got some pretty big claims about extra horsepower and stuff but as you said use the best and hopefully it wil perform the best

cheers
