Gotta find me first...
Yeah I remember you posting that you got hold of the last couple in Australia and were going to hang onto them

Been a while since you posted on this thread......
You still cruising around in this ute ?
I hope the tyre shop ended up coming to the party with the costs for the tailgate after that knuckle head destroyed it

Sure am and yes they did. Somehow the tyre shop got onto another new badge at a panel beaters in Sydney that was lying around on a shelf.

So I still have 3.

Crappy photo of how it looks now.

Haven’t posted for a while but still visit the site. Just got the ute back after getting a few mods done.
Happy with the increase to 291kw

Damn Covid 19 gave me too much time to think and watch YouTube I think.
Cam - BTR Stage 4 V2
Heads – Tremaniac CNC Ported
High stall torque converter - 2500
Diff gears changed to 3.46.
Mellings oil pump
Mafless tune

To go with what was already on it.
Stock Intake manifold with Growler pipe, VZ MAF (gutted & switched off) & 2 hole air box with K&N filter.
Exhaust – True dual system, Pacemaker extractors with 100 cell Cats.

Cam Specs.
Duration: 224/230
Lobe sep: @ 109
Inlet: .553”
Exhaust: .553”

I wanted to keep the stock appearance under the hood but I know it will eventually get the better of me & I’ll get a different intake manifold.
Keen on the BTR Equalizer 102mm intake manifold I think.

Certainly is night and day. Haven’t given it a good run yet as I want to get a few k’s on the diff but a very noticeable difference.

There's one of these for sale at a local dealer atm .
He has it advertised as an SS but has the side badges and interior = so without personally inspecting guessing genuine.
Just under $22k , just over 155k klms. Still I'd say a bit steep = unless you already have one.
I have to say when first sore can l get rid of daily and get this as a replacement.
