Yeah I think I understand. I did mark the engine mount positions with a paint marker both left/right and forward/rear, and so far they haven't moved. My engine was not powerful though. I'll definately look into it, thanks mate.

Also, did you jack the motor up from the bellhousing, or under the same with a block of wood or so


Definitely peace of mind. $2 bracket. Block of wood under the sump. Very light jacking up. Just enough to hold it while you remove and replace. Make sure you're using longer bolts for the block side. My steel plate is pretty thick and the stock bolts will go in but not really long enough. So i got a little longer as advised by the engineer.


Cheers mate, I'll check the other bolts while I'm there.

My mrs told me to 'get a brain' the other week, so that's exactly what I did

Ha ha yes it is the enemy, so the internet seems.

I'm impressed with the quality of everything so far. The fuse box is all terminated with just a couple wires to attach. The o2 controller sends data via CAN to the ecu which is good.

The 950 was just released by Haltech. It has 8 injector outputs and 4 ignition outs. I will probably just run it in semi sequential at the start, however it will be wired up for sequential.

See how we go hey Laughing

Yeah they are, but once I took into our account the shipping price and dollar conversion, it actually wasn't too bad. The Ms3x came in at just under 1200, and the Haltech 950 was 1600. Plus it includes the fuse box and complete power wiring already. So yeah, it is more expensive but nothing crazy.
The thing I like, is that if I ever get lazy or get too much money, I can just drop it off to one of about ten tuners in sydney who can tune the thing.

Yeah, but comparing the MS3x to the 950 is not really apples to apples. MS3X can do a lot more.

Mr. Green

Nah, as I said - they are good units. I just can't bring myself to spend the money. You'll have no issues with it.

That looks sooooo neat compared to my setup.

BTW that plug on the O2 sensor is the same as what my Daytona WB controller is using.
