ill keep updating this first post :)

so far:
XG ute...
BA front end conversion in progress (with BA F6 bodykit),
330mm brakes,
MY99 WRX bucket seats,
FPV starter button,
stripped aircon completely,
and other little s**t..

what ive got so far in parts:
- BA F6 motor
- T56
- Lokka + 3.45s
- 60Lb Siemen injectors
- Motec M800 ecu


issues incountered:
- NO ISSUE with K-frame :D
- swaybar fouls - solution = lower swaybar an inch!
- bonnet clearance

but im not worried about bonnet clearance, got a XG GT bonnet going on, the vents adding needed cooling, and its bulge will allow me to clear it :)

yeh RSWEPN, ive followed your build... i thought the blue was a sweet colour

im fitting / modifying BA fenders to suit... much easier to use original BA fenders rather than folding metal around edges.

wheres there's an angle grinder... theres a way :P

Are you modding the XG bonnet with a bulge and choping the corners to flow with the gaurd??

freak6, im pretty much gonna cut out the XB/C GT bonnet and weld it onto the XG bonnet. just cut and weld.
fibreglass XB/C buldges are around $365, but fibreglass and bog cracks.

an angle grinder solves all.


mitch, im not sure how lots of KW + live axle + manual, will go haha. should be fun haha

I cant wait to see this come together. It should be a weapon.

When do you think the engine and stuff will be in and running?

My problems werent ECU related, the ECU is pretty good for the price imo.

pretty soon dan i reckon, i work offshore, so when im not working (ie: back home in perth) i just work on my cars.

slight delay in the re-start of the ute...
blew my EF XR6T turbo Saturday night. hahaha.
rebuilding the turbo today. will be back on hopefully later this arvo :)

ive been talking to a few car club mates (that actually know their s**t when it comes to turbos and such) and they seriously suggest that new Autronic.... which will be around $3500 installed.

end of the day around $1000 more than a 8860, but i dont want to "limit" my project by an ECU that might not be up to the task
