    Turbo 6.4L WHII Statesman

    G'day all. I've been spending a bit more time on this forum lately and I figured it's about time I put up a thread for my ride. I'm too cheap to pay people to work on my car, so everything (well, close to everything) I've done myself.

    The Car:











    For the last few years it's been manual (T56) and I just finished putting a stock auto (4L60e) back in it today. I know it won't last long, but it will have to do for the moment. The plan is a 4L80e swap when I can gather up a bit more coinage.

    Very nice, that's a crazy sleeper. Any engine bay pics?

    How did you find the turbo motor with the T56? I assume you switching to auto for better times.

    Also, how do you find the Trutrac? Thinking of getting one to replace the locker..

    The last time it was washed, was when those photo's were taken years ago. Also, the best thing about this car is the gearbox.

    Hah yep, a couple of other forums have been giving me the shits lately. On this forum at least you don't need to have a massive door sticker on your car to get interest...

    T56 was fine, only issue I had was running out of RPM too quickly and losing boost on gearshift. I'm sure it would have been better flat shifting or with a 2step, but I don't think the clutch would have agreed. I'm kinda interested in better times, but the main motivation to change back to auto was financial. Mate gave me a good offer for my manual conversion + auto swap and I needed the cash, so I took it. Problem was, the box he swapped with me didn't last 5 mins in my car, so I've just finished swapping it out with another stock box.

    Trutrac is awesome, one of the best mods I've done to the car. Highly recommended. Easy to turn and park, quiet, low maintenance yet still locks perfectly when required.

    Yep, thanks Soopy for being a good bloke and donating the 4L60e which is currently in my car, works a treat!

    None that I'm proud of...

    The last time I raced it was with the stock 6L engine, T56, the wrong plugs and too much boost. It went 12.2 @ 128mph, and got dyno'd the next day at 388rwkw blowing a shitload of oil and smoke out of the breathers.

    I pulled it down when I got home, #7 piston looked like this.

    Should have just bashed some liquid metal in it and kept going.

    Could have just put a new spark plug in it and kept driving. Still worked fine, just a little bit of extra breathing...

    Even more stealth. People would think it's a diesel.

    Did you use the factory manifolds or make custom ones?

    128mph is decent for a statesman, certainly making some power.

    I can't weld so the manifolds were made by GenRacing. It uses a custom manifold on the passenger side, a 2" crossover pipe and the factory cast driverside manifold. I had all of this JetHot coated.





    I hope to run closer to 140mph with the new setup

    Nice man!

    How much boost you running and where did you get the BW turbo from?
    11.1 @ 119. More to come

    11psi for the dyno run, but just running off wastegate spring pressure (5-7psi) at the moment while I finish up the tune for the 160# injectors. Once the injectors are sorted I'll wind it up to 15-20psi and start working on the E85 tune

    The turbo also came from GenRacing, but I think he gets them from GCG.

    Keep your eyes on DIYMA classifieds, one comes through there every few months if you are lucky. Not cheap though...
