All good mate Smiley Know to say hi next time. Kinda annoyed I had to drive to work and didn't get the chance to give the car a squirt on the congested motorway.
April 28, 2015, 03:41:45 PM
Haha, I should have said hi! I wasn't sure it was you until you drove off and I found out what you had done.
April 28, 2015, 03:19:18 PM
Alright, so had a nice civil conversation with the body shop. They claim they never even saw the crushed pipe... whether that's true or not who knows. But they're replacing it for me. Happy days.
April 28, 2015, 03:18:27 PM
Awww dude! IT WAS YOU! Lol, its not my fault, the bugger normally reverses out for me... hes just getting lazy Tongue
April 28, 2015, 12:29:17 PM
Nice reversing skills getting out of Troy's place today Iced_Maggot Wink

Tell them to clay off that overspray, if its on smooth surface it should get off.
April 27, 2015, 10:06:59 PM
Yeah mate, not gonna pay. They're gonna fix it. There's white overspray all over the place so they were careless as hell. But I can live with that. But anything that robs me of performance? Nope.
April 27, 2015, 09:25:55 PM
Just had a look, plenumn looks ace, but the pipe looks (I tried to swear because i'm unintelligent) house. Would be easy to get a used one but why should you have to pay.
April 27, 2015, 07:55:46 PM
There u go Wilsh, check out the 'What have you done to your car today' thread.
April 27, 2015, 07:55:23 PM
Yeah you're probably right Robbo. My long term plan from pretty much right after I got that car has always been everything short of big turbo. Plan to keep this car for a while.
April 27, 2015, 07:24:12 PM
Was meaning the pipe. Lol .but Would still like to see plenumn.
April 27, 2015, 07:18:22 PM
Plenum is cream on the top, but it's really only of use when the car is uber modded and gotten cranky.
April 27, 2015, 07:09:38 PM
Good to hear. Cars can be replaced but kids are precious. Yeah Wilsh, got pics. Gonna go to town on the repairers. Will post when I get home. Or do you wanna see plenum?
April 27, 2015, 07:02:54 PM
no one hurt. the little girl was hit by the van behind, but looked alright. The lady in front kept her brakes on witch slowed the van driver a fair bit
April 27, 2015, 06:59:37 PM
Yeah I saw that, must have been bent pretty bad. Have your got  pic of it?
April 27, 2015, 06:53:29 PM
Plenum install went great mate. Pick her up 2morro am and install injector tune. Will let u know how she pulls. Altho found out my repairer tried to screw me by not replacing a bent as hell hotside pipe. No wonder boost ramp felt sluggish.
April 27, 2015, 06:50:00 PM
How did the plenumn install  go with the injectors iced?
April 27, 2015, 06:45:22 PM
Hell man, was anyone hurt?

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

Hi All,

A quick cheers and beers to everyone who has dropped in, dropped out and bounced around the FordXR5Turbo.com community over the past 2,738 days of existence - we recently ticked over 9001 members so I felt it was a solid arbritary number to celebrate.  Thumbsup

Thumbsup 9001 Members!  Thumbsup

We may be working with a 7.5 year old child who occassionally has issues with authority, punctuality and humour but I'm sure we'd all agree they've been a welcome addition to our lifes.

Thanks again for being part of such a great community I never expected would become what it has. Much love.  Cool

Cheers,
Miyagi
