    Nice, 600hp @ atw should be good for a 10 second pass.

    Ball park figure, if you dont mind me asking, how much?

    That's a decent figure for something supposedly indestructible.

    That sucks bro at least you still have the Ute to keep you happy till it's back on the road.That is some serious coin for a transfer case but i guess it's better then 2wd or no wheel drive. Life does get in the way every f#$kn time.

    Found a cheap gearbox down in sydney I'm trying to buy which will get it at least going again - to build a good gearbox is going to cost me about 4k in parts alone...

    looks like it'll be running 20psi for a fair while!

    So, what have I done lately?

    1. Had the battery changed.

    2. Increased the whining noise in my transfer.

    3. Blew my 5 speed gearbox to pieces [​IMG]

    4. Bought a built shep 5 speed from Sydney and had that fitted.

    5. Got defected for the front suspension being too stiff, eyebrow height and a recirculating blow off valve.

    6. Got un-defected by just showing up and listening to the Qld transport man tell me how much of a dumb **** the cop was.

    Yep, the transport inspector asked me if I changed it after I was pulled over - which I haven't. He then said "what the **** is this guys problem then?"

    #Evolyf struck again - My friends at absolute automotive cross threaded the majority of bolts holding the transfer to the gearbox, busted some hydraulic bushes, left my car out in the weather and rusted up all my clutch plates, oh and hammered the front centre driveshaft in a little bit skewey and mangled all the splines on each end - you get that when you try to reinstall a BENT bar back into a hole, took 2 hours and a lot of swearing to get the bastard back out again.

    Jim Berry is rebuilding my clutch, and a million thanks goes to step up automotive at the gold coast who even went as far to drive up to my house, grab my car and take it back home with them - really top notch guys.
