    Haven't done much lately, Found a hose clamp half off the other day - fixed it and found myself running close to 14psi so off I went to learn how to program the eboost 2 (which was very easy).

    Contemplating buying a set of these:

    HOLDEN VT VX VY VZ LS1 V8 10.5MM EAGLE PERFORMANCE LEAD SET

    $100 for a set of 10.5mm leads is pretty damn good considering turbo cars like to eat them.

    It sounds very loud at the moment, at the end of the month it's getting another muffler put on the back, I nearly needed earplugs driving to lismore yesterday.

    Yeah thanks boss, I run an NA 218/233 isky cam which doesn't help on the boosted power side of things, but it still goes alright. The only update is I've put an extra muffler to quieten it down a bit - which was a horrible fail...

    Nahhhh it does the job, I mean how much power does a ute need? I've got new comp lifters, rockers plus I'm getting pushrods and rod bolts - hopefully that'll be the last modification EVER!

    ...but we both know it won't be...

    Well when you decide to go crazy and play with pushrods, cams or anything like that for the charger (even fuel systems) let me know. I know of a place where things are rather cheap compared to everywhere else.

    Julian knows where to get the fuel parts from that's for sure. His ute goes alright. Being a 6.0L is a big disadvantage though. Hahaha.

    Young Trent has a 400rwkw 5.7L turbo SS with a soon to be fancy pants auto box. I know I'll never beat him with the manual but I still have fun.
    Powercruise is where we'll find out who's faster but until then I'll say I'm winning...
