Cheers mate, now my goal is 14.5. I think that's achievable by knocking 2 10ths off the 60' time. Only 6 more sleeps! LoL

After another appearance at this weeks WAW, I think my base time will be having to stay at 14.9. I think my clutch is slipping a bit off the line. At the end of the night I got a few runs in quick concession and my 60 footers were getting worse and worse... the engine was revving but the car wasn't launching for what felt like an eternity. I initially thought it must've been a bit of wheelspin, but after talking to Gregg, who was watching, he said there didn't appear to be any wheelspin what-so-ever.

On a brighter note, I got a call yesterday to say that all my stuff has landed and should be ready to pick up on Monday. Pretty quick I reckon, considering they only shipped it out last Friday. When I pick it up I'll pull it all out and get some happy snaps then run it all up to BPT and see if they can squeeze me in now! LoL Nah, I'll wait my turn. But will probably organise a few other bits and pieces with them like the clutch, upgrade the ignition and fuel delivery.

I have a busy couple of weeks at work, so time should fly and the big girl will be in the shop before I know it.

I haven't any clue mate. I haven't researched it one little bit. Maybe if anyone has any suggestions? I'll be discussing it with Terry at the workshop and see what he suggests. Same with the ignition. If anyone can recommend anything or wants to warn me to stay away from something, please let me know. :)

Walbro 255 will meet your fuel requirements with ease... These appear on Ebay from time to time at a very competitive price.

Speak to Jeff, he obtained and fitted one in the ute prior to his tune.

Ah good to hear its all arrived in oz Chad. Be sure to post up some happy snaps when it all arrives.

As far as fuel delivery goes, as BOTTLEDUP said a Walbro 255 in tank pump will well and truly meet the requirements. I am running one on mine that i picked up off e-bay for under $150 to my door. Other than that you may want to consider an Adjustable pressure reg, i have one here for mine that i havent got around to fitting yet, but will be once the new t/b arrives. 24lb injectors should be fine, if you get a set from an AU just remember you'll need the adapter flyleads, these are available from BPT and are around the $100 mark, i am also using these on mine. I've also got myself a nice little fuel pressure guage that i'll be tapping into the fuel rail, makes using the AFPR a bit easier.

As far as ignition goes, i'm using the std Dizzy with an MSD direct replacement cap, MSD blaster coil, Top-gun 8mm LPG leads(will probly upgrade to some nice MSD leads shortly), NGK plugs gapped to 1.1mm, BPT TFI module, and a new rotor button for added insurance. Something along the lines of this will be fine mate, just make sure everything is new like the rotor button, cap, leads and plugs and you shouldnt have an issue.

Cheers for that guys.

I got some 10mm leads from BPT not long ago and the plugs are pretty new too, although will probably need to be re-gapped. I'll have to start looking on ebay. Out of interest, what would one of those fuel pumps set you back from the shop?

They're iridium... only done 10,000ks... I shouldn't even have to think about replacing them for a long while. They'll be looked at tho. When it goes in I'll probably end up geting new ones

The fuel pump. Is the model number GSS342 by any chance? That one is good for 255l/hr or 265, depending on whose site you read...

I just had all my ignition replaced at BPT. Screamin demon coil, live wire leads, Dynamod ignition module and new dizzy cap and rotor assembly.

Much larger gap in the plugs as there is alot more grunt and Dwell as well, although for the money I could've gotten a complete MSD or Crane setup.

Yeah mate, either the GSS-341 or 342, both will be fine.

Cool, will order one in the next couple of days. One problem solvered.

I'm getting the ford racing injectors - FMS-M-9593-A302. Should they be a straight fit, or am I going to need to f@rt around with adaptors like with AU injectors?

They are EV1 style injectors which should plug straight into your harness. EV6's look alot slimmer than the fatter EV1's.
