Started to get sick of the old single spinner diff that liked to whine all the damn time ! So found a cheap 3.45 LSD diff and fitted that up. Found a bit of a difference in car acceleration, not as good as 4.11 diff gears but still better than stock and it was LSD too.

Modded up the air box with some holes cut out on the right hand side as some cool air gets around there when driving.

Excuse the messy work, normally never this careless but considering it is never seen in the engine bay and is only cosmetically ugly it had to do with the tools that I had.

Yeah bummer :(
I had them out Tuesday but they are still giving me a fair bit of pain cause some of them hadn't come through yet and had to be cut out of the jaw.

Yep I'm also going on the boosted falcon charity cruise, hopefully should have my tickford kit on by then as well. :D

I'm over in Reservoir so not too far from you.

You are lucky then. I have had 3 out, last one is against a nerve along the jaw bone, however removing rear molar will suffice as then wisdom tooth can pop up and be removed that way.

Flatmate had 3 outa four taken out as well. Was in a bad way. Same issue, one against the nerve. Took 3 hrs on one wisdom tooth, 2 hours for the next 2 all up.

My bro is about to go and get 4 out. lol good luck to him



hahah yeah same here, I have had all 4 out now. The area with the most pain now is the one on the bottom right were the tooth was near the nerve. It was impacting on the molar but they were able to cut it out from the gum. Glad they are all gone now cause I was always getting bloody sick from them. Just keeping up the medication helps, but certainly not thinking straight :P

Also forgot bout the cam, nah it's a reground cam from wade cams..... muuuuch cheaper than their billet option. You just take in your old cam and they provide you with another one that has been grinded to spec.
