You should bring some Australian friends to the site :io:
I'll try! If not I'll post some updates of some cool as hell Barra builds a few mates are doing.
I'll spoil them for you right now

This is the first one. My mates territory f6x. Yes they are factory turbo barra and AWD! He's recently built a Barra for it to aim for the 700 awhp mark. His engine setup is very similar to mine but he's got a built bottom end

Second cool one is my mates FG F6

It has a hole in the headlight so you know it's fast!
It was a simple rods and piston Barra with a g42 on it making 750 rwhp area but was running into constantly lifting heads.
Recently got rebuilt with bigger rods, fire rings, bigger head studs, huge girdle and cams. He's probably going to more like a gt55 sized turbo and aiming for the 1xxx area.

I was trying to decide where to cut the side pipe for the loud valve down too so the gestapo and highway patrol don't screw me over. I haven't decided but it hurts me to know I have to shorten this thing.

It's so cool! Looks like a old v8 supercar side exit.

also started on the pie cuts for the valve cover breathers. What a **** of a job

This is gonna be such a fanboyish American thing to ask but I gotta. Two part question:

1. Not knowing my Australian geography at all, are you anywhere close to either Croydon Racing or Maatouks? I did my research and they are 3 hours from each other.
2. If yes, have you seen any of their cars run in person?

Those guys are all in Sydney, I'm in Melbourne so we are about 9hours apart.
However my mate who's a fabricator and has been helping me along with my shitbox works at a performance shop here that's tuner is good friends with the tuner for Croydon's R32. Very impressive stuff going on there. They are in excess of 6000cc of injector per cylinder right now and can't biuld a head strong enough atm for how hard they are pushing things.

I'm not a big fan of most Japanese stuff (most due to the community that surrounds those cars) but man are those two cars cool and it's been incredible to watch them fight back and forth for that title.

No joke. I would love to be able to feature some builds from your area. I've always loved the stuff that comes out of Australia.

Updates will be slower now due to lockdown.
But here's some progress on the exhaust
The side exit 4 inch is technically the main system but Is blocked off by the loud valve when the car is out of boost forcing the gas down the secondary 3 inch into the factory exhaust system for dead silent out of boost driving.

Updates on my car have been slow. We are at the disassemble and prep for paint stage.
Still deciding if I remain stock bottom end or dump a set of China rods in the sucker.

In the meantime enjoy some updates on another mates project.
It's a Ford EL falcon wagon that we previously Barra swapped in 6.5 hours.

I gave him my old 3582r Barra turbo setup for his wiring time when my car is ready.

Instead of just dumping it on the car he's opted to do a AWD conversion using ford territory cross member and driveline.

The territory subframe almost just bolts in just needs some cutting and extend studs
