I have had lots of people ask whats done to my ute , well a lot that no one sees . Lots of phone calls to forced performance and asking on forums helped me a lot , and yes it was a struggle all the way to the end .i don't recomend to do this if you have no mechanical know how .two years it took me to finnish this but only one year to asemble the car so not to bad if you only work on the car on weekends and that was not even all the time as i got the shits with it .
It has got a TBRE asembled forged motor rated to 800 hp tony said .has got technico engine mounts rated to 1000 hp .the engine also has a oil cooler mounted under the passenger headlight . The build dominello BTR has a open converter and a stall speed of 2900 rpm also has a yella terra flex plate and a build tailshaft by Farrows at Nambour. There is a transmission oil cooler behind the cab , sadly Dominello past away some time ago now RIP . It has a old style Nizpro cooler that i custom made all the aluminium piping for to suit. The diff is a hart transmission from brendale build true track with Danna 3.9 gears .it has all new suspension including nolathane bushes and anti tramp rear leafs same as the brute utes had about 6 years ago .brakes are T2 dba rotors with ebc red pads and newly rebuild calipers , and braded lines with 5.1 dot brake fluid . The interior also got some new trimed fg seats and guages to warn me if anything gets to hot on track days .i fitted under the tray a isolator swich to cut any power in case of a emergency. The ute had a full respray about 5 years ago but was only driven for about 20.000 klm since then .i custom made tail light at the back and pulled the whole tray apart and got it powdercoated in a silver , then replaced every bolt and asembled it .the fuel system is a single 460 walbro in tank and single 460 walbro serge tank by process west. .there is also a turbosmart E boost street controlling the two boost setings on E85 and a turbosmart plumback 38 mm blow off valve under the bonnet. The exhoust is a 4 inch xforce stainless steel dump with a 5 inch cat and a twin 2.5 stainless xforce exhoust to the end . The turbo is a xr6turbo development stage 3 jim Gianna turbo which at the moment does a great job . Lol i think the cheap $ 450 number plates suit the ute well 5low6 . I
I realy want to thank Jamie at Forced performance for his great work he has done thanks again . Also a special thanks to a forum tuner from Adelaide ( JETURBO ) for advice given . Great help from everyone on forums that stuck with me in this long build . Not bad for a home build car in a double garage with basic tools and a workshop manual lol
