Crispoe I'm looking for a JDM b6 intake which has larger air / fuel injectors... I found an intake for $20 AUD,, need all the bits to go on it... like the fuel rail and throttle sensor.... ETC

ROCKETMAN has a good writeup on it on his private blog.

I’ve read up about the JDM intake years ago.
From the pics I’ve seen, they come with the black top 360cc injectors that can also be found on the BPT which also uses a distributor too.  Even the GTR used a distributor and that came with 440cc injectors if I remember correctly. So you shouldn’t have any spark blowout issues if the ignition is working properly.


Heres a really good video on how to put Projectors in our 4x6 housings!

@WashiestSnake  IMHO... you're comparing apples to oranges, The Miata's popup headlights were larger to fit 7 inch headlights and they’re made of metal too which is far superior to our smaller plastic assemblies.  I originally tried reusing my 4x6 housings with my 2.5” minis (same ones used in that youtube video) but even with the projector lens touching the front glass, the bulb bottomed out before I could screw on the retaining ring that holds the housing in place.

I've been researching alternators and it appears there is a compatible alternator used on the Australian ford falcon... which varies from 90amp - 110amp...

Its a 3 lug model, same plugs except doesn't have a v belt pulley. I'll have a go installing it next time the engine is accessible in that location.

Busy moving and getting ready for a house inspection at the moment...

Found some discontinued NOS 266mm Galant HH station wagon slotted rotors today... dba221SL & SR.

They're a bit pricey at $195 AUD for the pair, but had to get them just because they're so rare !

Also hooked up a dual digital volt meter today, looks awesome and now I can check how my aux battery is going with the dual battery system and alternator charging vs power drainage from the surround sound system.

Clubsprint with spoiler

Here's a pic what it'll probably look like on my Capri with the Clubsprint rear bumper and new spoiler

Going for the Clubsprint look.

I now have a complete original clubsprint rear end with f140 spoiler, third tail light and upgraded LED tail lights. It's quite difficult to source an original clubsprint front bumper with the round driving lights, I have found one but the guy is seemingly reluctant to let it go without charging a really high price... sigh.

Check out the LED tail lights on the pic... they are made by AutoLED in Australia as caravan lights.



Once it all gets painted and installed, I shall update pics !

... also installed rear camera for reversing linked up to front flipout screen.

GPS tracker

Getting all the wiring done on the new tracker, includes remote to unlock / lock doors and I'm going to put a solenoid in the boot so I can pop that open too :)

Thinking about keeping the wiring simple, no fuel pump cutoff or fuel sensor... not sure why I might need a speed or temperature sensor with the Tracker, but going with RFID immobiliser and microwave sensor.

For some weird reason the door lock confirm is linked to the horn, so I'll redo that to the hazard lights instead.

I'm going to go with a siren with a key switch, just so it can freak out anyone who tries to reach into the car when I park topless. I think 118db should do it, and I think there are 6 tones... I'll probably throw in flashing hazard lights too :)

I'm trying to think of another option instead of a siren... like maybe a recorded message or some such... like "Get away from the Car !!!"... sirens are pretty effective though... not as effective as tear gas, but this isn't a warzone.

I've seen a siren that has it's own built in shock sensor... so thats another idea too.

I don't do Facebook...  I can get a used repro here, but it doesn't have the sockets for the round driving lights.

Don't take this the wrong way but that's one sexy ass. I would love to do that to mine but finding it here in the states ain't gonna happen. I've been playing with MS paint on a mock up Ferrari 308 GT style. Once I take the parts car apart I may do a real mock up.

Chck out my new LED's Autolamp LED 102 series, made in Australia... need resistors however, which are cheap to get. I paid $65 AUD for a pair of Ambers and the same for the Reds.

Other Awesome news...

There I was this morning looking for Capri SC clubsprint bumpers as usual and I found a Capri SC 93 Turbo for sale for only $300 AUD... in Pearl Black !

Check out the Pics, runs ok 17 inch rims, sheepskin seats !!! The owner is selling all his cars because he broke his back in 3 places. :(

Got a permit to drive it home on Thursday :)
