Tassuperkarts Tragedies

Post by tassuperkart » Sat Mar 17, 2007 5:06 pm

Well, I know im a silly old fucker but today, i went out and bought a 10" sub box, a 150w RMS 10" sub driver and a 2 x 240w Continuous RMS per channel (bridged) amp.

This is just to compliment the Clarion 4 x 50w head in my truck............

I cant believe myself sometimes!!!!!!!!!!! Im such a friggin child!

Cant wait for the amp to arrive sos i can load it into the Western Star prime mover and hopefully kick my freakin head off.
Its already loaded with 6 high quality coaxials!
If not, Ill get another 10" sub box and driver and put that behind the passengers seat for just that extra bit of crunch..................
Fuck i love getting old!!!!!!!!
My kids cannot understand me at all!
Now, go and get fucked all of you muwaaaahahahahahahahah!

Now I have a new work car and it's all been transplanted.....into a Magna wagon!!!! pffffffffft ha ha ha ha ha. I'll get some pix.

ROFLMAO!

As a matter of interest, the Clarion head unit decided to grab its bat and ball and go home and refused to play disks.

I whipped it out and took it up to Western Star and they replaced it, no questions asked, with Kenwood player. Evidently, that particular Clarion is quite troublesome.

I dont like the sound of the Kenwood nearly as much as the Clarion but hey!
That Clarion unit really had ......I dunno?? "Balls" I spose.

The Kenwoods much more....."gay" sounding LOL. Not nearly as edgy.

However, Ive frigged endlessly with the EQ presets and gotten it sounding quite good.

Danm its loud!

More tragedies men!.

As you might know, i have an FJ20et in a 2wd Hi-Lux ute. It goes pretty well.
FJ20's are just so brutal and gnarly sounding. The e15et is no match in the balls out stakes!

However, I made a serious score this week.

i have been contemplating re-powering the ute to make it a better tow car for the race car trailer and stuff.

Ive contemplated a couple of different engines but i keep coming back to a VG30 Nissan V6. Cheap and plentiful and beautifully engineered bulletproof V6!

Anyway, I scored a VG30det which is the single turbo variant of the twin turbo quad cam 300zx (Fairlady) VG30dett from an engine importer.
A complete, long engine with all sensors, accessories, turbo and a cut loom for a measly 395 bucks! How cool is that?!!!

I had to buy a 300zx dett flywheel for 120 and freight from Syd to Hobart is 150.
So for under 700 bux I have a quad cam turbo V6 to make a very cewl hell ute!
I cant even rebuild the FJ20 for that.
If/when I ever pop a head gasket, or have to replace a cam belt, ill throw the entire fucking motor away and buy another one! So frikken cheap.

Im looking for a 2wd Nissan Navara V6 5 speed as well.

Im going for the commercial 5 speed as opposed to the 300ZX 5 speed as it should have a lower 1st and 2nd gear and wider overall spread of ratios which will suit my application as a tow vehicle much better than a close ratio 300ZX item.

I intend to boost it up to around 12 to 14psi or so on the Microtech MT-8 which should return at least 250Kw. All this in an 1100Kilo 2wd ute!
This should compliment the 4.1:1 LSD I fitted today!!!!

I cant wait!!

Fuck I refuse to grow up!

hahaha you guys are so kind!!!!
My undercarriage is pretty fucked from the abuse of years of Moto-x racing and plenty of hell sports but my brain refuses to grow up!!!
I have no intention of altering or switching off the childishness either LMAO!

ettd? the FJ20et will be for sale as a complete running engine (fan to clutch) with forged pistons and no ECU or loom along with a spare T3 turbo.

Reasonable offers invited!!!!

A bit more foolishness.

I fitted an intercooler to the FJ20 powered ute today.

Ive had this cooler for about 2 years laying around but i could never seem to be bothered with fitting it.

Anyway, since i had the grille out to change the headlights, i began playing around.

It was a rather annoying job actually. What at first glance appeared straightforward became a right pain in the arse.
Everywhere i wanted to use the hole saw had washer bottles, radiator overflow bottles, brackets and other sundry shit in the way.
So the only way to get the pipes thru the radiator support meant that the pipes came thru the panel quite close to the cooler itself which made things a bit difficult to get the elbows thru the panel and line up with the cooler inlets...bah!

Since the motor is going to be replaced soon, I cobbled the pipework up out of 2" stainless tube i had laying about and a handful of silicone sleeves and hose clamps so it looks a bit shabby compared to, say Bens artwork. However, i dont give a shit what it looks like so long at the bloody pipes dont blow out of the silicon tube!!
No welding apart from a mild steel section between the cooler and the TB which holds the bov.
I had run out of stainless bends by then but a trusty 2" mandrel bend destined for another project saved the day!
I welded in a new mount point for the Bov which now hides underneath the inlet manifold/plenum.
I used a different bov to the trusty old Turbosmart Type 1 and by christ this thing barks!!! LOL
Might have to change it back I reckon.

Seems to go allright tho. I gotta fit up a temp probe to see whats happening.

There you go!

I understand the need for conformity. Without a concise set of rules to follow we would probably all have to resort to common sense.
