I can't reproduce the behaviour shunter22 is talking about. Start a thread in the support board if you wanna chat about it. Cheers.

i use an ad blocker here. it's only on my iPhone that i am having issues
May 02, 2016, 07:50:34 AM
I'm not having a problem visiting here at present. XDA is bad though. The advertising hijacks are mainly on network data using the phone. Much less problematic on home wifi.

it's not the site, it's getting redirected somehow. started during last week. i was meaning to let Pezz know.

AdBlock Plus.....
I use an ad blocker even in my phone, just to keep the thing useable. Some sites have really agressive hijack advertising methods. The worst one I visit is XDA forums.

Good to see that even simple stage 1 tune which removes the artificial torque limitations in mid-range is enough to push it to over 520nm though :D
May 01, 2016, 08:16:25 PM
Having a look around, a few sites are reporting that the HPFP on even the 2.0l in the ST is good for 380whp. 430whp = what 520hp at crank? 80% of that is 440whp at crank so limitation must be elsewhere you would think.
May 01, 2016, 01:41:06 PM
By some info looks like HPFP on 2.3l is limited to 410-430whp.
May 01, 2016, 01:19:34 PM
Hard to belive turbo is undersized. Could be high pressure fuel pump is running close to the limit. Any generic tuner should make tune at max 80-85% of fuel flow.

Actually just checked PS website, the RS MAXD tune is apparently similar so sounds about right. I'm guessing the sized the turbo just big enough for the output its got hence not much to be had HP wise?
April 30, 2016, 10:28:50 PM
Something interesting that did come out of the fb though. If true impressive torque gain but HP not so much.

My favourite posts on the FB page are the ones like  "Anyone got a CAI?"  
I have to resist responding "Yes."
April 30, 2016, 06:26:15 PM
Not sure what those things are sorry. But a 1kg extinguisher & the bracket it comes with will mount to the square seat mount section in front of the passenger seat. I have had no problems with the seat sliders
April 30, 2016, 10:31:53 AM
Anyone tried fitting a rem line or bracketeer fire extinguisher mount to the seat rail slider? Does it fit? I want to be able to fully use slider and make it look ok

Yeah, and my lag too, been good mate.  Enjoy my new well, year old whip, but still miss my 5!
April 28, 2016, 07:11:22 PM
Sorry for the lag, been at work all day.

Just a quick note to welcome crispymk2 to the Mod Squad!  Thumbsup

For those that can remember, our previous Mod from the west was Kashmir Mafia, but since he moved on from the XR5 scene some time ago it seemed an official presence was lacking for the WA member base.

crsipymk2 has been a valuable contributor to the forum for quite some time. His primary role will be to keep an eye on the WA section of the forum and update databases etc. He is also keen to organise more gatherings for local members. Good news for all.

Thanks for jumping on board Crispy!  Smiley

Hey All,

Just a quick one to let you know the downtime we've been copping lately should come to an end as of now as we've moved host.  Cool

The almighty Sir Pezzalot has moved us to a new, beefy host. For those tech inclined we're now residing in Amazon's AWS Cloud - so here we are, all modern and gone full whack cloud computing. We'll be monitoring performance over the next days, weeks and months to see how things go.  Thumbsup

Actual software / feature updates are in planning and we'll let you guys and girls know when we're going to pull the trigger on that. Worth noting that we're considering a bit of a feature clean up and re-build on a new platform that will most likely be an inclusive process from your end. We want to strip things back, do the upgrade and target great performance and usability with the community features we all really want so your feedback as we bounce through this process will be useful and sought after.

Cheers,
Miyagi
