Taipan Motorsport is very proud of both our pit girls (Marta and Camilla) for there outstanding efforts over the weekend at Powercruise Syd 2010. Hope you enjoyed the ride Marta. From all the team at Taipan, thanks girls XXX
For those wondering, I did crank the Boost above our Dyno shootout effort just for Marta, wouldn't you?
Massive shout out to the Team at MR HDT, you guys are the Big Guns of the event not the cars.
Special thanks to Troy and Michael from turbo Smart, your products are the reason Marta had such a good time.
Special thanks to CV Performance, your the man Con.
To all the Team at Taipan, Michael, Damian and Scott, funs over, back to work :)
Rapid Systems 4" into 3.5" Exhaust for XR6 Turbo
The system starts off with a 4inch dump pipe, with bell mouth section off the turbo for maximum flow and spool. The dump runs into a 5inch cat with 4inch inlet and outlet, so its a true 4inch dump & cat section, 4inch mid section runs back and merges to 3.5inch, where it goes into a straight through 3.5inch muffler. The muffler is hand picked and chosen from several mufflers that have been trialled as part of our ongoing R&D. Over the diff is 3.5inch piping, running into a 3.5inch stainless muffler chosen for its deep note and polished finish to look nice from the rear (can be black also), the tip is a 4inch stainless pipe, simple and effective.

Flat shifting xr6 turbo
flat shifting in an xr6 turbo using the launch control and spark cut revlimiter.
For those that dont know what going on here, i imported a 2 stage spark cut rev limiter from the USA and fitted to the "coil on plug" ignition in the xr6t. The limit can be set at whatever rpm you like, i use the forst stage for launch control and the second stage to limit rpm between shifts. The advantage in using this system, is that the throttle body stays open, and the injectors keep flowing fuel whilst the limiter is dropping the spark. The result, is that the unburnt fuel keeps the turbo spooled, and the open throttle body prevents the accumulated Boost from dumping out the BOV. Both of the above are prevented by the factory limiter as it closes throttle and turns off injectors when the limit is hit.
Xr6 Turbo v Skyline GTS t
Relation battle me verses the step sisters man Joel. Old mate got me on the start but i then drove on by him. Both did PB's in this run.
XR6T vs Commie SV8
At poercruise 2011 at Eastern Creek, down the main straight in my XR6T ute having a little run with a VY SV8, think its got a massive cam in it.
He started going a little before me and then i did kinda start pulling him in a little bit but was a great run and that SV8 had some BALLS!!!
