Smile My T

Series 1 AU TE50 in Sparkling Burgundy c/w body coloured bi-plane.
Mods are restricted to a CD stacker, decent 6x9 rear speakers (sadly the originals are a weird 9x5 size) and a Shu-roo.
Engine had the Herrod 5.7 stroker kit at 38,000 .along with a new transmission.
Cheers

Any issues fitting 6x9s in the parcel shelf?

Welcome to the nuthouse.

Well done, those sound like some fairly modest mods there.

Looks very nice, bet it goes well too

Hi guys
Apologies for the size and quantity of pics - I was trying to save space with a small pic!
In answer to the questions -

1. The 6x9's are an easy fit with a small cut (not that I did it but the installer said it was easy).
2. Engine produces about 265kw or so (est) - big gain has been in torque with an almost flat line rather than a real curve that has maximum torque at about 1600 rpm and then a gradual decline. Completely transformed the nature of the car compared to stock. Isn't anything much like the T3 stroker either where max torque is about where the stocker is and it feels comparatively dead down low.
3. The transmission change was because the guys at Herrods noticed the oil was a thick black foul smelling sludge when they did the engine. They flushed it and changed it but at the next scheduled service (2,000 km later) the trans oil was exactly the same again.
Was checked by the guys from BTR and then replaced under warranty.
It's another one of those things that isn't supposed to be checked until about the 100,000 service but if you use the ESS a fair bit it's probably worth getting it checked.

Will take some more pics on the next day the sun actually comes out in Melbourne including the engine and interior.

Thanks for the comments
R
