Re: "(AUST)Mod's Turbo FB"

Update is it made a whole lot of smoke the last time I drove it. I suspect one of the turbo oil seals has let go.

I want to get the turbo rebuilt, sell the red driveline and get the RB in.

Anyone want to buy a hot 202 turbo with built powerglide?

Re: "(AUST)Mod's Turbo FB"

Update time: Got old mate from Yarloop up to check it out. He discovered one of the centre head studs had pulled the thread in the block. We removed the head and helicoiled the block. The engine was otherwise in good order. I am yet to refit the manifolds and test. Once they are back on, I'll take i...

Hi Neil,

I am racing on Sunday so I will head down early to complete the scrutineering and check out the swapmeet.

I have recruited a very skillfull pitcrew of one - the legendary Nomad!

At least if I blow it up, one of our club members can give me a ride home :D

Re: "(AUST)Mod's Turbo FB"

Hi Neil, My workshop is in Cockburn Central. Well, last night I bit the bullet. My headstuds arrived around lunch time, and a quick call to Jay Harrison had a torque wrench sorted. I pulled the rocker cover off to expose the head bolts. This head has been heavily ported, and the inlet port posts hav...

Re: "(AUST)Mod's Turbo FB"

I'm not liking my chances of racing this weekend. The tuner has detected that the head is now lifting with any boost, and my new head studs won't arrive until tomorrow at the earliest. On the way home from the tuners, it was popping and farting with moderate application of the loud pedal. It isn't o...

Re: "(AUST)Mod's Turbo FB"

Hi All, Minor update. I have entered the Nostalgia Drags on 23 October 2016. Since my last update, the car has received water/meth injection, some more oil leaks and a few rust bubbles. I have had it tuned and it is making a disappointing 180rwhp. It is running low boost of around 12psi, and unfortu...

Re: NoMAD's Kustom FB Sedan

I think I have a spare speaker grill if you want it.

I'll pay you a visit soon - I am very keen to see this beast. Last time I saw it was when I bought the HG!
