why are you so restricted to small tyres ?

if the size tyres where OEM fitted they are legally allowed to be fitted to your car!
same as rim sizes again with rim sizes you are normally allowed a +2 inch increase of OEM

it is a ONE TONE ute so it has to have load rated tyres or it is not legal to be driven around.and no insurance is going to cover u .the tyre has to be c rated . there is no tyre out there that will fit this ute or any one tone truck in a performance oriented tyre like 17 or 18 inch. go one try to find one .i have even approached tyre manufacturers but none of them are willing to spend the money to manufacture this type of tyre because there is not a big enough market out there for them .

Thanks mate, good pics there, I can see the bolt holes in the brake boosted are more aligned to each other and the top connects to the bracket attached to the top of the firewall, which e series differ from there with their pedal box setup, knowing this and Mitchell g's setup should be good.

Thanks, sorry to hijack ya thread :).

just about ready to start assembling the ute with all the xr 6 parts .just changing the heater rod that was broken with the new improved shaft that goes wright to the end with the metal rod (can see in the picture )

Image
Image

Image
going to cut the sedans black carpet to suit my ute ,the grey one just looks not as nice as the black one
Image

have taken the old turbo line of and taken the tiny oil filter out .but there was no old oil build up (so why did the bearings let go in the turbo only after 100.000 klm)
Image

just got to clean the engine bay up before i start fitting the wiring harness and running gear
Image

so far i have worked out the difference from v8 to turbo 6 are fuel lines,air con hoses ,transmission lines , gearbox shifter (goes on different side ) , power steer cooler ,power steering lines , under bonnet wiring . so thats a lot more than i thought originally ,but not hard to do .just like when i used to play with meccano set , it just all bolt up .bugger i just was never good at memory game (thats why i have taken lots of pictures lol ) ps the dash wiring most likely is the same (only the 2 last letters are the only difference ) most likely the difference is that one dash is black and the other is charcoal (bk verses cx ) because al the same wires (have counted them )

still waiting for the flapper to be send back so i can assemble the turbo again .(got a turbosmart wastegate actuator as well , 10 psi ) . also got stainless steel hot side turbo to intercooler pipping ordered . to get the flapper conversion done cost $300 plus freight got the lot for $700 including delivery from Sydney (most turbo repairers wanted $480 just for the flapper conversion ) just hope it is done well .

just would like some info on turbosmart boost 2 ,was going to fit one to the ute so if i can not get traction that i can just detune the engine in the gears it will lose traction or just the power curve (due to 215 60 16 light truck tyres ) .on the track i will use et street drag tyres so thats no problem ,just for the road use restricted to skinny tyres

got some bad news today ,the automatic btr needs a full rebuild .third and fourth clutches are burned out and the band is also no good .its going to cost me $2000 to get it fixed with au parts to get it to handle a bitt more power than the stock box . now i wish i would have bought my mates box that was for sale .my budget is certainly not there no more ,just got to keep going now .have ordered some new engine mounts that can handle up to 1000 hp of e bay for $300 (old once were broken from the crash ) will end up costing about $5000 to $6000 for conversion and tune (including rebuild box and turbo and some other upgrades )
