    So, as the story so often goes, I wanted more power. The falcon 6 was a great motor with plenty of torque but the oodles of room on the exhaust side of the motor was just begging to be filled! I knew just how to take care of that.

    Say khelo to my liddle fren!



    Garrett GT3582 ball bearing water and oil cooled unit. 0.7 A/R front. 1.06 A/R rear.

    Made a manifold to suit:




    Custom cold air intake (not for water crossings!)Water to air intercooler. 3" exhaust from turbo back. Haltech PS1000 programmable engine management. 42lb injectors.







    Had it dyno'd. 10psi on 33" tyres.

      Was always disapointed with my decision in getting the wheels powdercoated black after the cut and flip. I felt there was way too much black on this 40 and it needed a touch of bling to set it off. Plus I wasn't wheeling it hard anymore. Got a top deal in a set of 15x10 American Racing Atlas polished alloy wheels in a -44 offset.

        I had a problem with the offset.

          Ths urged me to do something I had been wanting to do for a long time. 60 rear diff housing. IFS front hubs to match 60 rear width.

            It ended up just a touch wider than it was on the cut and flipped rims on 40 housings.

              That's about where it's at. I've probably forgotten to mention a few things along the way.

                      Haven't driven this for a while. I've put it into storage while I'm building the dual cab. Need to get a build thread going for that too
                      actually.

                        Garn, get a build thread up! Collect your ideas and let us keep up with progress. (will we be able to keep up with the progress?)
