  1. My S15 has one, I still have it hooked up as well as an oil cooler with thermostat, brings up my oil temp in winter, but still cool in summer.
  2. boots back on the ground in Iraq

    A comparo to Nazi Germany is a little different, as it wasnt an ingrained religion, but an encouraged belief in their country. Honestly I dont think it is something tht will be ever solved, due to the extremist/ isolationist nature of the crazies in the mid east. But due to removing the dictator that had it all under control (however evil he was), I believe he are obliged to make an appearance, but would rather not have troops on the ground. There is a sad, resigned part of me that wishes the extremists on both sides would just blow themselves all sky high, and someone with some sense could try to reign things in.
  3. ORC 559 vs ORC 659 Twin Plate

    As someone who had this EXACT setup, this is hilarious. I went thru 3 boxes in 6 months, with NO abuse of gearbox or clutch (daily driver/casual hill run toy) Hopefully you can limp it home to reconsider when it goes Bang. And trying to source an S14 flywheel on its own is hard, and $$$. I made one out a stock S14 flywheel and a lathe, after giving up.
  4. I have a dampened ORC in my S15, unless its for a track car, dont do it - demolishes gearboxes. Compared to a single plate dampened, there is a heap less damping (feels like same size springs, but twice as many. Unless your going BIG power, just get a good single from someone like NPC. I only have it, cause it was in the car when I bought it, and have since upgraded to a Z33 box after breaking 2 boxes with only light abuse.
  5. Use Lockys idea, but only use the grill section of the LHS, plastic welded to the mount/surround of the RHS? No real fab involved, just a bit of plastic welding

    Might be a dumb question, but can you get 20-30mm spacers for a Ford FG ute? Just got a new daily.
  7. Did you sort your trigger setup out? Just looking at the ATI picture, and knowledge of dampers, the outer shell is solid mounted the to crank side, and only the damper ring/hub are allowed to move. So you should be fine to mount something on the face of it. All the end tanks are looking porn Steph
  8. Z33 6 speed. almost identical ratios, unkillable.
  9. Rather than start a new thread, I will post in here. I have picked up a job in Canberra, will be starting around November, and am starting to look for housing. Is the anything other than realestate.com or gumtree to help me find something? Need 1 off street park, preferably lockup, other than that, I am pretty non fussed. Silv will be staying in Tas for a while, will be getting a work car, and bring up my roadbike
  10. Where to get Titanium thinwall tube?

    TBH, I have no idea. Dont have access to much fab gear other than my TIG, bandsaw and random tools, so hoping for tube, so I can just lobster it. Any ideas on the sheet tho? Thanks Steph
  11. Hi, Just wondering where the best/easiest place to get some thin wall Ti tube for a motorbike exhaust, and maybe some lobster intake piping. Found this company in the states - http://www.titaniumjoe.com/ - that will sell in lengths from 1 ft and longer. Any other places
  12. Dont think so, I remember a friend had to pull his head off to put it back on after he forgot to install it after machining
  13. You and Your Bike

    Finally got my 05 ZX10R sorted after getting it back after it was stolen for a few days. Getting it ready for a big ride up the east coast of Aus to try and find somewhere new to live. Spent a heap on it lately getting it to how I want it - -PowerCommander III (getting tuned on Sat) -Brembo front master cylinder-Braided brake lines all round -Braketech 330mm oversize iron rotors -Toby steering damper -Akropovich shorty -Revalved suspension -Scorpio alarm -Full custom China fairing kit - amazed at the quality and fit! -Renthal chain/sprockets with shorter gearing -Double bubble screen -Oxford heated grips -Braking clutch lever -Custom rear numberplate mount -Intergrated tail light, smoked indicators, HID conversion, mirror delete There is a heap of other smaller stuff, but the bike is looking super trick Also have a custom rack made up, and a full set of soft luggage for the trip. Bring on MotoGP at The Island, then let the adventure begin! Hoping to head as far north as Mackay, then work out where I would like to live Stephanie
  14. blue smoke no boost

    Is there oil in the dump pipe? This is all to coincidental, Remember the KISS principle (keep it simple Stupid). sounds like a butt ton of oil in a cylinder, loose cooler piping, or cam install gone wrong.
  15. I have had the box in and out about 10 times now, rebuilt it once, and tried another 2k gearbox. Just driving till it breaks now, when it does, I will put the spare box and different clutch in
