    AU Ute nugget

    Bought this cheap AU ute to replace my old XG which replaced the maverick.



    A few months later I converted it to manual and threw a M112 supercharger on along with a 3 inch exhaust and pacey's, bosch 023 fuel pump in the standard cradle, 42lb injectors and a flash tuner.






    It made 195 dynowatts on 5 or so psi and drove pretty good but after long drives it would ping.

    I drove it gently for a few months before the pinging gave me the shits so I took it off. I sold it last week and ordered a 6boost manifold and GT35r which should be here soon. :h5:

    I've also bought a J3 chip and techedge wideband setup from TIperformance. This pretty much does what the flash tuner does but it does it for $250 and I can DIY it. If it doesnt work well Ill put a microtech in it.

    Not after any particular power figures or quarter mile times with this one but 300rwkw would be nice to have again. I just want something nice to drive that I can thrash on dirt roads without worrying about the paint and stuff when I go dirtbiking.

      Techedge wideband guy is a fucking cunt.

      Met him once, mate was dating his daughter and needed to pick something up, parked out front of his house waiting. Prick rides his pushbike home, starts chatting to me, then has a go at me in that way only a weird bearded nerdman can where you can't really tell if he's actually having a go or joking about parking with a wheel up on the footpath facing the wrong way up the road (drivers side on the path) and how we don't live in the UK so I can't do it.

      Was confused and figured I should take it as a joke, wrong choice, aggressively tells me to move it, then the prick blows up at me about some fucking L plater that almost ran over him 15 minutes earlier on his pushbike like it was my fault, I told him to calm down and it wasn't my fucking fault how some L plater drives, mate walked out and copped the full storm right then too.

      Not saying you shouldn't buy the wideband, plenty of people seem to think they're good, just felt like ranting about him being a cunt when I saw you were buying his shit :p

        That's just like my ugly AU ute, just mine is still standard and costs $35 per week.

        AUs are banned from modification!

          lol

          I like it because no one thinks anyone is dumb enough to modify an AU so it doesnt get a 2nd look.

          Looks aside it's at least 11ty times better than my XG was.

          Here is my last AU. This one was prettier and faster than my current one.





          The goal is looks like a stock AU shitter but with similar fasts to the shiny AU above.

          lol at the techedge story. I didnt buy it directly off him if that counts for anything.

                    Undecided.

                    I prefer it and the nizpro item over the blingtastic process west and plazmaman ones but the cash is probably better spent on rods.

                        Not yet. Hopefully soon is this week.

                        It will still be a while before I put it on though.

                        Ive got an AU ghia wreck that Im taking the front seats, door trims, electric windows and dash from and I need to get rid of the rest of the car before I can take this one apart.

                        I havent had a chance to do anything for the last month because of exams. They are finished now but the GF wants to go house hunting every second Im not at work. :/

                        Need more time and daylight.

                          Goodness arrived in the mail today. :D

                          Gt35r, turbosmart 50mm gate and 6boost manifold along with plenty of Vband hotness.




                          Depending on how quickly house stuff goes this week I might be picking up a T56 for this next weekend too.

                            loving the new mods should make for an epic sleeper.

                            it would have been good to have seen the m12 kit developed a bit more with better plenum and intake and maybe an auxiliary meth injection on boost system.

                            how much belt wrap did you get on the m112 and what did you use to tension the belt?

                              The belt wrap was pretty good. I guessing it would have been just over 3/4 wrapped around the pulley.

                              It used an auxilliary pulley bolted to the aircon compressor and the standard tensioner using a belt from an early V8 falcon.
