Oh that’s GREAT...
I propose all the GMH-Torana club memebers volunteer one hour of their time to come around and help..
 
No bullshit, no jabbering or bragging, no pissing contest and No hanging around afterwards. 
Just come in, say hello, put your name down, do your thing and then “Piss Off” to make room for the next guy.
So the more of us that come the quicker you’ll get your Monaro on the road. :clap:
 
BTW, Monaro means woman's Breasts in native aboriginal, don’t it?
Sounds good to me, hitch a ride on that. Yep, don’t mind at all, so long as they're pouty and or firm. :driving:
 
Anyhow...back to my senses...
 
If we all help each other for one hour, it would work great & we'd all learn a bit more..
 
Anyone? :clappin:

Thank you...Judgelj
 

Finally someone who has confirmed my thoughts. :blink2: 
 

I always say Perth is inWoop Woop
So WTF would you want to live here? well, I have property investments, that's all..
 

Not as if I can take a day trip to Sydney or the Gold Coast, Brisbane & yes I love Canberra or Tasmania (not gona worry about Adeliade LOL)
 

We got nothing here in PERTT (as the Yanks call it) except for the old Freo Prison, Rottnest island  & frkn slow drivers... :tease:

Mate im keen, anytime after 1st weekend of June name a date. Id love to see this car finish as it deserves too. Just to see how it started it neads to be able to fight another day and to see it with rego plates (not dodgy ones) swinging off it would bring a smile to my face.

Once i finish selling all the crap in the way of the Monaro i think ill make a start on it. The electroplaters should be finished with my chrome now, its been nearly 4 years. I saw him a couple of months ago and he said he would do it now so... I guess that means its done :P.

Well I'm glad i didn't sell it, health kinda got in the way for a bit there.

 

Its been a long time since i've updated this thread but i've learnt a few new tricks in the last couple of years, mainly Solidworks and Megasquirting things. I'm much more comfortable with electronics and fabricating so i think this project will take a different path.

 

No more thinking about Rego. If its possible once I'm done then fine but why let RMS get in between me and a good time, eh. Anyways Ill stop babbling, heres some pics of my latest brain fart.

 

What do you think so far?

I made this an interference fit, i should be able to heat the manifold and chill the tb's and slot it together.

Picked this up a year or so ago for a steal, along with a Garrett GT4082r....... overkill?

hahahahaha, could you imagine trying to tune that.

The TB's are from a Hayabusa. Ill be going 2 injectors per cylinder, Probably use the standard busa injectors + an extra set before the butterflies.

I've been chipping away at the wiring loom for the last few weeks and i'm nearing the end. I'm just waiting on a few bits like the oil sender and another roll of that tesa loom tape to finish it off.

 

 

I've been thinking of selling the statesman in the background. I even listed it on gumtree a while ago, but it turns out im a bit of a hoarder and suck at selling things.
