The pedders he has taken it too are very switched on. They have been a franchisee for over 20 years and have some very good people there.

I know of plenty of motorsport people use that particular outlet for their wheel alignments due to their knowledge.

Fair enough, and good to hear they're not all bad. In my experience Pedders staff are employed on their ability to upsell rather than mechanical expertise.

whats going on here ! its looking like a page straight out of Facebook i might of worded it wrong , i denigrated the work from the previous wheel aligner and pedders agreed [customer is is always right ] the toe in was out a mile . moylee was right , they did know there s**t and i did see a few hot custom cars in the car park. the price was up there, i work out $160 labour for no more than a hours work but I'm more pissed of with the totally wasted $70 i payed for tyre fags . now lets go back to my [boring] thread where i do a post, for example pulling stones out my tyres and nobody answers my [stupid] important questions.

Have a read here about injectors

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=54623&hilit=injectors

550cc are very large. These will likely be a dog at idle. What's your power goal (i.e. do you really need that large?).

EVO 500/550's would fit.

If you are willing to pay I would recommend aftermarket such as injector dynamics/xspurt injectors where you can go to a 750/1000cc injector and have better idle control than the OEM injectors.

I have the 1000cc xspurt, they are great.

thanks flyinggrape

I want this engine running spot on ,start up ,idling etc so i will pay to get it.

Im running a adaptronics e420c , will i have a problem with high or low impedance with this ecu ?, Hopefully its good enough for the job , I've read good reports on it [earlier posts]
my aim 150kw /200hp

the tuner recommend around 500cc injectors
im bit confused :? [dumb c--t] you saying 550 cc is to large but then recommending xspurt 1000cc

the xspurt 1000cc you recommend sound great , could you please give me a product number on injectorsonline.

Yeah, Adaptronic ECU is good little unit for the price. great to support Australian manufacturers too. e420c is getting a little long in the tooth but I used one for my first aftermarket ECU and it worked really well.

Andy Wyatt (who is engineer and owner behind Adaptronic) was always really helpful working with people. I imagine his business has grown a bit though.

Go to his forum to read up on the ECU.

e420c works with low and high impendence injectors.

For 200hp, assuming base fuel pressure of 40psi (i.e. not raising the fuel pressure) and 85% max injector duty cycle (this is heaps of headroom) you would be looking at 450cc injectors.

Xspurt 1000cc. Best talk to the supplier and your tuner. Mine came in a kit and I left it with the mechanic to sort out :).

The reason why Xspurt injectors can be much larger is the actual design of the injector, it is much more efficient and controllable.

If you want to save money use DSM (Mitsubishi) 450cc black top injectors (they are the "newer" version of the blue top injectors) but likely need to get them from US, would recommend getting them ultrasonically cleaned too. That all adds up so you are not saving much off more reliable new injectors.

so the bigger battery needed a bigger battery box .

the existing [bunnings storage box ]batt box wasn't up to it any way ,started cracking up..
didn't like the common batt boxes on offer [look like garbage bins] so found a plain power coated stainless steel batt box made for camping trailers. measured up perfect for batt and boot.

took a couple of weeks [lazy fuccer] to cut and shut and add all my [ what do you need that for ] accessories
the list
-added a hinge
-rubber lined
-2usb/cig lighter
-mains power switch
-circuit breaker
-always on switch [radio etc]
-fuse box
-240volt sine wave inverter
-digital volt meter
-seperate anderson plug for recharge/jump start

Love your work with the battery box! Looks a treat! I've just installed a cheap setup in mine and had the battery moved to the boot, but this looks way better!
