G'Day Chris,

Looks Ike a fantastic machine. You have fitted what I basically have sitting in the shed waiting to go in.

I seen your Sporty on the 4x4action website the other week.

I hope you don't mind if I post a link up so the guys can see the big bum.

http://www.4wdaction.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=131930&p=1646619#p1646619
top work.

would really like to talk to you at some stage about your setup especially the front locker as I have one as well waiting to go in.

Did you consider going to 10r's and obtaining the 5.38 R&P's to help with the gearing?

Talk soon

Cheers, Chris <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Hey guys
just a quik note the wild cat extractors are advitised as 95-97 fit but they are direct bolt on.... all that needs changing is the egr valve soldered shut! highly recomended ! great preformance change!

Re: New Member TheRunt313 Write up - 12/02/12 04:01 PM

Power chip R.I.P.......so the mount for the powerchip is in the engine bay on my 2001 had to find an adapter but not impossible so anyway first serious run and the chip melted "to hot in the engine bay" ;( so no go on the chip it does give the extra power but not worth the melt down...Hope my experience can help others cheers all!

Re: New Member TheRunt313 Write up - 12/02/12 10:37 PM

Did you attach it to the OBD port under the hood? I wonder if the port under the steering column/dash would have also worked...
Posted By: Runt313

Re: New Member TheRunt313 Write up - 12/02/12 10:43 PM

fair call! i did look but couldnt see one where the instructions said it would be on the right of steering colum <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> that wouldve been a much better option!
