    I finally got around to finishing off all the pipe work for the intercooler. Started it up and ran great. Short video to give you an idea of how it all looks.

    I just need to tidy up the radiator area and run a new cold air hose to the top of the SC and its good to go to the tuners.

    Thanks gents, it actually sounds quieter now Gary with the new billet impeller installed.

    It definitely made it easier to run the intercooler pipes with moving the TB to exit at the front of the manifold jlss.

    Hi gents thought it might be time for a few updates on the ute. Picked it up today from the detailers after it got ceramic coated. The car came up amazing the paint is so deep now. So I only thought right that it got some new wheels to go with the new look.

    After seeing the progress Slow355 has made with his interior I pulled my finger out and helped Gary get the panel fitting for the shift lights using the dekota digital box. Not a hard modification just takes some time to get the shifter in and working.

    Photo bucket is playing up so I will get some more shots up later of the rear airbag suspension I fitted as well.

    Hey nice!!! Are you leaving the Dakota box there? As don’t think your standard surround will fit with that as the cigi ash tray will hit it

    No moved the dekota box over just a bit still a plenty of room for the cigi ligther.

    What power did you end up making with charger?

    It actually made the same power as before 230rwkw but I had changed the diff ratio to 3.7s so little hard to compare with the old 3.08. The biggest issue is that its loosing 4.5 psi through the intercooler setup. I have another cooler to try. Its only short term as I will be adding water meth next year.

    Yes mate coated all over, wheels as well and interior. It is Williams ceramic coat designed and used by the F1 team. It ended up getting 3 coats which ended up about 2000 microns ( most 2k paint is about 800-1000 microns I think )

    Interior as well? As in just painted parts?

    so it protects, does it make it look any different?
