Another TT 350Z in Oz!
I was just reading the latest issue of the AutoSpeed. Top stuff – it’s
looking great! The article of interest is the one with the Nizpro twin-turbo’d
350Z - 396kW 350Z!...
Not sure if this is of interest but over here in
Oh, and while your on the Xspeed site click on the "Secret Sports" link and check out some other awesome WA made cars including the 652hp at-all-fours R33 Skyline and my yellow S15 currently packing 320 RWHP without cracking open the engine.
I need a piece of advice. I am about to buy and install an aftermarket supercharger from www.pestuning.com on a VW Passat V6. My question is - do I need an intercooler? If yes, what kind would you recommend - water based or air based and why? I am looking for a safe system not a money saving. Any experience on how it should be done would be highly appreciated.
Off-Centre Steering Wheel
I have been a member of the AutoSpeed website for a while now and am wondering if there is anywhere to post technical questions or ideas for articles? Even a forum would be useful to exchange ideas and advice.
The particular query I have (as
trivial as it may sound) is the steering wheel on my Holden VT Commodore is
crooked and I want to straighten it up. I know this can be as simple as
loosening a nut, adjusting the wheel and tightening it again – however, my VT
has an airbag steering wheel. I'm cautious about pulling the cover off (coz I
want to avoid an explosion!). The reason I ask is Holden wanted to charge
AUD$55 for a "steering wheel alignment test"... I figure it can't be that hard!
Any help would be great. Keep up the great articles!
If the steering wheel has become crooked without ever coming off, it's the car's wheel alignment that's out. We suggest you take the car for an alignment (with particular attention on toe angle). If the steering wheel needs to come off, we still suggest taking the car to Holden. The airbag will likely need to be disabled - and you'd need to know how to do it.
Re the intelligent water spray
module (Intelligent Intercooler Water Spray - Part 1)...
Is it possible to control an intercooler spray nozzle, intercooler fan and a
water injection nozzle all with a single intelligent intercooler spray module?
Any timeframe on when your dedicated water injection module will be

Have you tried using turning vanes in an engine?
We've recently fitted them in an intercooler intake with good results (the story is coming up) but we haven't used them inside an engine. If you haven't already, read The Patent Files: Turning Vanes> .
Following the number of recent
articles extolling the virtues of larger rims and wider tyres I've decided I'd
like to install 17-inch wheels on my wife’s Holden VS Commodore. Looking in the
Trading Post I've noticed a large number of SS Commodore rims for sale. Are
you able to tell me which ones suit the VS Commodore?
Also, I read with interest your article on hotting up 6-cylinder Ford Falcons -
Unlocking Falcon Performance.
This sounded great, except I've yet to convert my wife on the virtues of driving
a Ford... Are you aware of any places that do similar upgrades to V6 Commodores -
preferably located in
All Commodore rims have the same stud pattern - just check out the offset before purchasing.
Yep, the Mock enhanced Ford six goes great. We don't know of any places
that offer off-the-shelf atmo power-up kits for the Holden V6. One of the most
experienced Holden tuners we know is Leon Vincenzi of
