    Sell me the ute minus engine and box so I can put my LS1 and six speed in it.

    Grinning like a fucking cheshire cat is the answer.

    Not giving up. It'll be back slower and less complex, with more reliable electrics as per dales instructions.

    Smartwire like Dale said
    iq3 like dale said
    elite like Al said
    basic simple body harness like AJ/sparky said
    caltracs like Dave said
    twin turbo as GoMac said
    built engine like GoMac said
    lockup converter like MV said

    the only person I listened to so far was Scott who said its a waste of time as it is, yet persevered despite that and the diff guy who waved his wand.

    20-25k and it'll be back up and running.

    Itd be pretty fun & safe to drive with low boost, a new head gasket and none of those changes.

    Fuck that cracka. Buy a tidy low k Soarer/Celsior. Bang the motor in and lower the boost a bit and drive the shit out of it. Meanwhile screw a new motor together. You're getting way ahead of yourself.

    Wait wat.

    Twin turbo will only add complexity not take it away.

    Elite is only better than ps2000 if you have need of its additional functions.

    Any and all wiring issues could be fixed with one day spent under the dash.

    Bhg just needs a head skim and some studs and that will be the last you see of it.

    Dont overthink it, just fix it.

    Crank up the studs that are on there first. Maybe it just wasnt torqued up enough.

    It fills #7 as fast as I can pour it in the radiator (3x 3mm holes in thermostat).

    i suspect block is a write off.

    Still a LOT cheaper than an RB26 rebuild/replacement.

    Need to keep it simple as fuck to fix...listen to the smart cunts.
    Keep it simple,less headfucks.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Isn't 12psi a bit ambitious on a stock high comp motor?

    Of the 50k spent very little of that is the 1uz block......spend a day on it with ya sparky mate and buy a $500 wrecker motor and combine all the best bits into 1 new long block.

    Enjoy life!

    Settle for something less than pushing it to 95% (+/- 10%) of breaking.
