Jeff, I just sold a set of those.
Ash, yeah they are slightly under on the water pump and pwr steer but overdriven on the Alternator.
So it's swings and roundabouts....the AU still needs proper underdrives.

Got it back together again but not before autodumb gave me the wrong rearmain seal!?
Snapped the connector tab off the temp sender and couldn't get one of those either...don't know how many times I had to say to the autodumb bloke; "5 Litre not f**k 4 Litre" after he kept saying "the one in the thermostat housing?".
So after Dave(BOTTLEDUP) helped me out with the remaining bits I got it back in. I ended up soldering a flying lead into the top of the broken temp sender and she was a goer!
I'm currently wiring up the thermofans and running the wire from pin41 and tonight I'm fitting the quarterhorse to the EEC.

Yep, it runs good. Took it to my mates workshop yesterday and got a synthetic fluid trans flush...took 12L to get it clean :roll: but, at least it'll hang together now.

Nice. Did you put underdrives on it? Still running the crushed headers?

Oh yeah I know it...I've also been eyeing this off and I know it's chinese crap but it could be a good staring point, then buy proper turbos later....

If you get one of those kits I'd be very interested to see how it goes. It's very comprehensive... Lots of parts that could f**k up on you!

Well yeah and I suspect the manifolds wouldn't work without cutting and shutting. Maybe I'll just get a proper single 67mm turbo and stick it down the back.

Hey Ash,
Pretty rotten, got the flu real bad, had about a whole week off about a 2 weeks ago, now it seems to be coming back again!?
Been trying to get the thermo's and Hi-6 done on ED but haven't been able to. I did do an electric fuel flap conversion on the ute last weekend though, got sick of the damn thing popping open all the time!?
Tone almost has the adapter plate and shaft done for the rangie so hopefully next week I can start dummying up for the mounts etc. Suppose I should do a thread on it here.
