Power wise.. i really enjoy driving it its got packmaker extracters but im not sure on the sizes of the primaries/secondaries..

Anyways ill try to keep this as updated as i can :)

Thanks guys,

~Fazza

Nice tidy ute you have there.
Is the snorkel missing off the airbox? Or just in this pic?
Get yourself an EA intake tube, from airbox to throttle body, makes a noticeable difference.
Make sure you reinforce the firewall, it will crack, if it hasnt already.
Cheers, 8-)

haha thanks guys :P

yes the snorkel is missing I havent really looked at intake mods as im still tossing up between trying to do a BBM converison on it or not. The firewall hasnt cracked so far, but i fear that its starting to warp =/...

The headlights look alot better now than they once did :P just got some cut n polish and a bit of 2000 grit sand paper and went to town on them, but they could do with a proper clean.

Plans for the future;

Try and get as much out of the engine as I can on my P's.
BF typhoon front bar
Charcol grey respray
rocker cover painted gold
work the breaks and suspension a bit

Its my pride and joy.. but i do give it hell =/ and its starting to show the stresses..

New clutch cable while your there is your handy with a welder, reinforce the firewall. The sleves on the cable does deteriorate over time and the cable will eventually fail, and its almost always at the swage.

Simply throw a new cable in, pretty easy job, a new cable will operate smoother as well.

Otherwise clean looking uterus mate.

the clutch cables were prone to binding in themselves and becoming stiff... This is one of the contributing factors to the firewall damage they cause... If your firewall is still in tact I'd just replace the cable... If it is still very heavy in the clutch and stresses the wall a lot then its the pressure plate...

My clutch was stiff when we bought it and disconnected the clutch and the cable slid really good so we didn't replace it... It was the pressure plate was a bit how you going... So 12 months later the thrust bearing started howling so it got replaced with a heavy duty clutch and now its great and doesn't stress the firewall at all...

I haven't modded the wall as it hasn't shown any signs of fatigue yet... The pedal box was broken when we bough it and as such it has been braced...

Cheers,
Tim
