Thanx for the positive comments fella's! It has been oh so long since she was on the road but hopefully will be back shortly.

yep definatly very t1000 looking.... looks sweet... chrome looks sick! i have the same rocker cover... where did u get the intake runners polished? how much? if u dont mind me asking... :wink:


All the shiney bits in the engine bay are HPC coated. The intake manifold cost $150. Rocker cover was 100, headers were about 250 or so, and the piping was 60-70 a meter. Not overly expensive IMO, as you get the added bonus of heat proofing that polishing does not offer :)

Yup she's straight gas now. Before i pulled her off the road, she made 188.6rwkw with standard XR ecu, auto and running @ 9psi. Since then she has been converted to manual, bigger cooler installed, intake milled out, a haltech ecu will be installed and depending on funds i may be getting a lumpier cam, so that number should bump up considerably.

Looks good. I'd love to do something with my rocker cover if I knew how to take it off properly without f**k something up.

So where'd you get it done?
There might be a few bits I want done, such as extractors. But I'll have to get them clean first.

The place is called jet hot coatings australia. No need to clean anything, even if it's painted they acid clean everything first anyway...
