with weldin cast dont you have to heat it up, weld it, and then slowly cool it back down?

and can you weld mield steel to cast?

and one other Question, what sort of boost can a stock ea motor, and can you get away with a stock ECU.

Cheers, DAN

wooooooooooo hoooooooooooooo

miller tig welder has arrived by road frieght

bought a second old unit a Miller Dialarc HF CY50 machine rated at 10 amps upto 310amps AC/DC with water cooled touch and amp rate foot controller

she is a big machine compared todays machine will have to do me for now a late model machine is between $5000 to $10000 Australian dollars new

lets get some practice now with the machine LOL

anyone wanna a plenum for the XD to XF and EA to AU LOL ;)

Well first on the agender is a plenum with twin throttle measuring 66mm in diameter connected to a aircondition style intercooler which will be switched on by 3D WOLF veriosn-4-plus ECU when a pre-set inlet air temperature is reached at high load situations

will post a few pics once i start fabricating

cheers

this guys rocks, he's old school.
way way back, way before my time, this kind of activity was common.
Now, most people cant even conceptualise let alone undertake work of this type.
the rice boys like to paint their wipers, dump the car on its guts and ...
well, what do they actually do?
i just hope he drives this thing on the road, like, all the time.
i reckon falcons deserve this kind of treatment.

btw

commodores are s --- t.

straight to the point, love it.

i agree though, its a good project so far, alot different to the normal... rims, cam, t5 and exhaust setup. not saying theres anythin wrong with that, just good to see something different every now and then. And fabrication is so cool :) just wish i had the facilities and skills to do it!

nuffing wrong straight to the point LOL

ok just dummied up a plenum cut out of cardboard checking for clearances

the large front section has to house two ZK fiarlane 66mm throttle bodies , haven't yet made any contouring features as i just wanna get a rough idea what things might look like

Priced aluminum wooooooooo its expensive
a 1200 by 2400 by 6mm thick grade 5005 is $350+gst plus delivery 8mm thick is even dearer by about another $200

have several designs in mind so a full sheet should do quite a few plenums and not to mention the odd customer or too


cheers

i considered going into business making them but would cost me about $20 000 to start off and the government will only give you 10 000. a zk will be awsome. i considered making one out of a zk a while back. i have been offered $2500 for the seat
