Typhoon Clutch Fix: The Grey Ghost Lives


Got back to Bris on Friday and picked up the Typhoon with the temp fix, so far so good. Took it out to GT-P 330s on Sunday and relaoded the flash into it, went for a freeway drive today and must say Faaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrk
Bigger injectors and fuel pump on Friday, then it may be doudle Faaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrk.
Wooooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooooooooo, just hope the temp fix holds up but all feels well thus far.

I believe the 'temp fix' is actually the full fix, but they be telling everyone it's temp, so if it fails, they don't have egg on their faces again..

So the F6's running around are being the 'test mules' for FPV's road testing without actually knowing it....

this may be heresay, but I think it makes pure common sense, in an FPV kinda way.

You could well be right, but the temp fix or whatever it is, is definately much better and smoother. The Ghost had a few little gripes about going into reverse when cold until you stick it 1st gear first and then it goes straight in. I must say I'm pleased with what they have done and it won't be long before on of Mals jobs goes in anyway as I don't think the standard thing is going to handle a 15lb boost edit for very long once the bigger injectors go in
All in all, more than happy so far, and the Extreme edit, ohhhhh the extreme edit
I must also say that since spending a month in a loan GT, performance wise at least I definately made the right decision to go for the Typhoon, I'd rather have the effortless and rediculous performance of an edited Typhoon on tap than a V8 rumble any day of the week.

Re: Typhoon Clutch Fix: The Grey Ghost Lives

go and buy the latest Australian Muscle Car magazine, theres a full story on what exactly goes wrong with the clutches, very interesting read.

EfII xr6, weld draglites, king spring superlows, Wade cam, pacemaker extractors, 2.5" mandrel exhaust, electronic shift kit and too many more to list on here.
