Last night out at palmyra didn't quite get me where I wanted.
It's still not an 11 second NA Barra.
It was 23 degrees and humid as f**k.
A 10 degree day would probably get me that pesky 11.
Ran a best of 12.02 @ 113mph out of 4 runs.
The intake is still stock FG.
There's still plenty more power to extract with fitting some modified vct gears, and stepping away from the limited FG plastic intake. Plus the engine would benefit from a set of Zane Heaths monster extractors.

Something much better than wiring and fab is upgrades!!!
Clutch kit
Diff bushes
Control blades
All the factory goodies were destroyed.
Now it's ready for the Gen 2 GTX and 450rwkw

It's back together and driving under its own power. I love how a box car looks with 330mm front brakes.

Well here's a world first.
FGX ecoboost running stand alone in my fairlane.
Thanks to Brett from Custom Machine Works for the pcm work and Nigel from CANBarra for the coms box.
We have this up and running in 7 day marathon by me πŸ˜‚
Still waiting on tailshaft and intercooler core. Will post some power figures after custom E85 tune via pcmtech.
I'd say 200 rwkw.

#BARRAGE 80

FG turbo ZF6 swapped 80 series is ready for the dyno.
CANBarra for gear display and 100% aircon function.

The new SR20!!With a ZF6 behind it it will propel your 1 tonne chassis in to the 12s with just a tune.

The new SR20!!
With a ZF6 behind it it will propel your 1 tonne chassis in to the 12s with just a tune.

It’s been a bit quiet on our page for some time, we have been extremely busy and are now ready to release our standalone ecu modification for the ford 2.0 ecoboost.
In ZF6 (6speed auto) or manual options. Complete standalone. With only the ecu and the fuel pump control module needing to be run.
We can modify your stock ecu to make this engine run the way it should, and remain completely tuneable.
This should open up a lot of options for conversions here in Australia. Cheap reliable economical horsepower!

$5000 set up stand alone.
Add $3000 if you want a fresh built ZF6 (better than stock turbo)

One of my supplied fg ZF conversions. He fits the square peg in the round hole. I'll get it bombing skids.

Do you have a small car that you can't really squeeze a Barra in?
I've got the solution.
FG 2 litre ecoboost with ZF6 auto.
This engine can get a 1.8 tonne fg in to the 14s stock so imagine what it could do in a 1 tonne vehicle with the boost wound up to 190rwkw.

Whipped up a turbo side intake and battery relocation this morning.
Made it from scratch and utilised a stock battery tray from a wreck and mounted it on opposite side

We had Robs 9.2 litre monster in to get all his (barra) related items working.
We fitted a tone wheel and C/A sensor to the engine to fool a Barra ecu it's running.
Then the ecu controls Thermo fans, Tacho, speed,temperature.

I fear the day Barras will become rare like a 2J.
Wreckers are getting more for non turbo engines as scrap then selling them.
One day we will repeat that comment and cringe.

VZ and VE evaporator cores have been discontinued.
This is a big problem as these cores are extremely common for leaking.
A customer spared no expense and purchased a complete evap/heater box from Holden for me to swap out. Even with 60000ks on the clock the core was still oozing oil and gas.

Quick job on Borg's Silver Bullet. The last intercooler rubbed some speed holes in the condensor. All fixed now πŸ‘

First pic is how NOT to install HID kits.
The difference between someone who works on cars just to get paid and someone ( ME ) who lives and breathes cars.
Bumper and head lights out to make it look 100% stock.
Can't even see the high, low and fog HID install.
