Hector is going to be running 3 Honda Civics with spoon engines. And on top of that he just came into Harry's and he ordered 3 T66 turbos, with NOS, and a Motec system exhaust.

Were not sure Hector will keep up with the two VF Maloos that just ordered Motec M150s. We've just about completed the builds. Both Maloos have B15 LSX crate motors, both supercharged and both running flex fuel.

These Motec packages support the factory automatic transmission, paddle shift, cruise control, engine protections, flex fuel, launch control and more.

Building Engines - what makes an engine builder? We've all seen the ads, oils ain't oils.. well, not all engine builders are engine builders.

When you select your workshop to assemble your performance engine, consider how much trust they put in their "machinist". Does your engine builder give you a measure sheet with all the clearances listed? Or do they assume it's right?

Check out this RB25 that was built by a workshop in Brisbane. Southern workshops are reliable right, they're in Brissy? Before it started, our customer wanted it stripped and checked out, as it has sat for 9 years in his shed. We disassembled the engine in our temperature controlled clean room and measured each clearance, using our Mitutoyo Dial Bore gauges which measure down to the micron (0.001mm / 0.0000393")

The mains tunnel has not been line honed after installing arp studs. The increased torque of arp studs distorts the block. We measured up to 0.001" of distortion, with only 0.00023" clearance when we should see around 0.002" on the mains. The tunnel diameter is under the minimum range for ACLs installation specs too.

The customer was charged to grind the crank, yet the bearings are STD size and there is discolouration and marks on the crank. It hasn't been touched before.

We also found the bores 46 micron out of round, which is nearly 2 thou, or 50% of the desired clearance. This is because the bore hasn't been torque plate honed after the ARP stud upgrade.

Back to our machinist for this RB25 to have the block and crank re done, with undersize bearings. We are going to apply a 0.003" Teflon coat the pistons and have the bores torque plated to the correct size.

Livin4Skids was a great turn out on Saturday. The weather would have scared a few off, but there was still a really good turn out of spectators and entrants. We are proud to support the charities that are there for those in need.

I am sure this is close to home for everyone. We have lost some good friends and seen some friends in dark places ourselves. If you read this post, pick up your phone, send an old friend a text and just ask how they're doing. Forgive your mates who may have upset you in the past with trivial problems and get on with life.

Don't be lazy, and don't live with regrets, you could really make some ones day and turn a life around!

This 200 series came in to get the BP51 Shocks adjusted up, and we fitted some CalOffroad Upper Control Arms to get the alignment back in spec so the new Nitto Tyres Australia wear evenly.

We removed the factory side steps and fitted TJM 4x4 side rails. The factory roof racks were swapped for a Rhino-Rack with the Back Bone kit, rod holders, shovel clamps, and a solar panel.

A REDARC Electronics charger feeds the dual battery, which powers the Engel fridge, keeping the beers cold.

Saturday gearbox rebuild. This PPG dog engagement, straight cut gearset is from a 750hp RB25/30 streeter that lurks Mackays streets. We found the dog rings on second gear worn, causing it to pop out of gear on deceleration when they unload.

We're giving this RB25/30 engine another chance at life. This one is for another local workshop who will assemble it themselves. We send all our engines down to the best in the country, Powerhouse Engines, and then confirm their quality work in our air conditioned clean room, measuring down to the micron. When we specify a tolerance, it comes back exact, every time.

It has been over 5 years since we have been to Japan. Our Nissan 180sx had a main bearing failure at Bihoku after a week at Ebisu. We met a D1 driver, who towed our car to his house, took the day off work to help. Despite the language barrier, we changed out the engine in a day.

Mix in some snow monkeys, Nagano mountain drifts on the street, the most beautiful city, Hiroshima and a couple of rabbits and stray cats, Japan is definitely a site to see.

We can't wait for borders to open, so we can go on another adventure to Japan.
