It is very nice on the big side angles, it feels very stable.

A dit of an ooopsie a couple of months back. I went over on 2 wheels sat there for a second or two then come back down on all 4 after sliping off the track in the wet on very slipery clay. I did sh#t my self tho.

you can just see the track to the right where I should have been

I have driven your ute. Was a good friend who you bought it off. I watched it's progress as it was built up. Watching this truck being built was the main reason I ended up buying a GQ myself, now GU. Biders has just done some work for me too, great service/job, great guy. You have a pretty tough truck there. I'm happy to see it didn't tip over on you there.

All the parts turn up tomorrow. New exedy safari tuff clutch, engine mounts, hoses, water pump, belts and all that crap, all going to plan the new engine will be done this weekend then save up the $ for the turbo and the other bits. looking like I will be fitting a modded Kenworth intercooler about 800x500x52 so it will be big enough I think haha

I picked my self up a GT2876r turbo, tuned lenth exhaust manifold, 12mm pump with boost comp, 3" dump, 3 core radiator and some other bits on the weekend. Fitted up the manifold and injector pump just need to time it. I will fit the turbo and all the oil and water lines tomorow and time the pump so it will be all ready to go back in on the weekend.

Yeah mate its a 12mm pump with boost compensator. Got a heap of stuff off him, he was a hell of a nice bloke. I will give you a call when its all going and set up and we will go for a spin. I'm itching to get it going, I finished bolting up the turbo and manifold and did the pump timing so I am ready to put the engine in :D.

Seems to be a fair bit of oil around the exhaust turbine ?
Just WD40 its all good. The turbo hasnt even done 5,000km its like new.
