Hey guys, do any of you know offhand what parts you have to take off to get to the timing chain tensioner? I can think of the powersteering pump, but I can't remember if you have to take any others off. I could just try to leave tension on the cam gear but I don't want to stuff up the chain guides.

You only need to remove the power steering pump and the 2 brackets. You can then get to the tensioner. You don't need to remove anything else.

Sadface. My sister scraped the s**t out of my left hand front rim when she borrowed my car yesterday, it must have been a rough gutter as there's huge gouges out of it. Good thing I'm only rolling on 15s but it makes them look daggy. Also some moron scraped my car and swapped some blue paint onto my right front wheelarch. Pretty p****d off about that since my real estate claims that I don't get to use my garage that I am paying for and was advertised as coming with the apartment. If it was garaged it never would have happened.

Well, the only mod of late is taking out my cam and putting the gay stock one back in. The good news is EF_Wannabes EA will soon be cammed. :) I thought I could hack it with the stock cam but I don't like it. The exhaust sounds a lot worse now too after the cam change. I'm working a lot of hours at work so I might have a new engine and trans by halfway through February, at least that's my goal.

Well check out the thread in my sig, should be a few spectators and a few racers... So don't feel pressured into racing, but if you want go for it. Last time we went there was a reasonably stock vs ute. So there will be someone in about your time bracket... If not should be a good social meet anyways... Always passenger seats available :p
Also, if your not racing might be able to get cheap entrance lol

Cheers man, I might give it a go. My car flares from 2nd-3rd when hot so I might just have to redline it in second haha. I'd be keen to go even just to spectate. Really wish I'd gotten work over Christmas, I might have enough for my project build now. Ah well, I guess I'll just have to work harder for the next few weeks and sell a bit more meth to earn the $$

Hey FordAUte, I hope you guys had a good aussie day. Did you go for a cruise? I slept through most of it, haha.

Just a quick query for anyone out there - after changing from my other cam (Wade 1636) back to a stocker, my car has a lot less torque it seems, even less than before. Plus, it has a flat spot at about 1600 rpm-2300, then at 2300 it feels like it hits a powerband, like a 2 stroke motorbike. :? I forgot to reset the ECU when I changed it, so when it stops raining I'll take disconnect the battery and put it back on to let it relearn. Any other ideas? Fuel filter, injectors, distributor perhaps? It really is peculiar, if I lock it in 1st gear it kinda jumps at the start, then bogs down a bit, then it suddenly leaps forward at 2300 and goes until 4.5 (haven't had it higher than that).

Oh yeah, the old EL reached 300 000 ks the other day, such a proud moment :')
