Tyre Marks - Ford XR utes
After missing out on a gig with Top Gear Australia, Dave and I thought it
might be fun to do our own car reviews. We may even do some more...
1964 Ford Falcon / $100 At a Time
Shane has owned this 1964 ford falcon Sprint 2 door hardtop since 1997 when
he was 15 years old. He bought this car for $500 and made payments "$100 at
a time". The car was a shell when he got it and over the years he has
turned it into a running, and driving classic car with a Ford 302 V8 and a
5-spd manual transmission out of a Mustang 5.0.

Justin's FG XR8 Ute
Read the full article here:
One of the most curious aspects of car ownership is the inevitable ups and
downs that arise during the modification journey. From simple mods to full
scale builds the level of blood, sweat and tears is undeniable, yet the
results generally make it all worthwhile. This is certainly the case for
Justin, whose fateful victim was his beloved BF2 XR8 ute 'Pokey', finished
in the rare Breeze green. After losing his car to a freak fire accident, he
was faced with the decision of continuing with another B series or starting
a fresh project with the then newly released FG model.
Ford Falcon FG Sound System | The Basics | Amplifiers
This is the first video of a new short series where I go over the basics of
upgrading your Ford FG's sound system.
In this episode I go over the basics of installing an amplifier and wiring
it to your car so you can upgrade speakers and still have control of your
system through the ICC and steering wheel controls
The issue has been raised to me that putting the fuses in the boot is
actually a bad idea.
If there is a short and the cable catches fire it could set the car on
fire, rather than just a small fire in the hood.
If you are worried about shorts and damage to your car I recommend only
running a few inches of cable and then a fuse in the engine bay, then the
length of the cable into the boot after that

Ford xr6 turbo ute phase 2 kit
Just picked up my ute from autotech engineering with phase 2 kit finally
installed. Massive difference from ute being standard. Struggled with
traction in 1st. Changing gears is all over the place as i didnt know what
to expect from the massive power increase. Sorry bout the quality of the
vid and the swearing.
Groaning/Moaning Noise From Engine - Ford Falcon FG XR6 2008 6-Speed
I've got an annoying groaning noise coming from my car.
It's so hard to find out where it is, and I'm almost at the stage of giving
up and changing the engine just to get rid of it.
I've done some self diagnosis.
Here's all of the info I can provide, the video is to demonstrate the
- Happens between 1100-1400rpm mostly, although it can be reproduced by
light touch of the throttle when cruising at most RPM's below 3000.
- It occurs more in cold or dense weather and is louder in colder/denser
- It sounds like it's coming from the middle of the engine, but it's very
hard to pinpoint what side of the engine bay it is coming from. It's more
to the left of the engine bay, where the intake manifold is, but can also
be heard from the right before ignition.
- It sounds like something is pressurising, or air is in one of the fluid
systems i.e. power steering, transmission, fuel system
- A lot of people say that it's either: torque converter (I doubt it, car
isn't moving when the sound happens), secondary air pump, clogged
injectors, fuel pressure regulator (fuel rail, this is the only thing that
makes a noise during ignition), power steering pump/pressure lines, or fuel
- It happens also when the ignition is switched to "ON", increase your
volume to hear it better....
- I meant to say that the fuel rail vibrates when the noise happens.... not
that it groans.
- It CAN'T be the catalytic converter...... I just had it replaced, and all
bolts on the Exhaust system are
If anyone knows what this sound is, PLEASE comment below, it's driving me
I apologise for saying "um" so much, I'm nervous on any camera.
Cheers and all help is appreciated.
