T5's can handle a lot of abuse, its power shifting that kills them.

Yeah I take it really easy on my shifts so I should be fine there

So, a bit to update.

True to my word I replaced the hipo manifolds. While I was at it I replaced the heads. And while I was at that I replaced the intake.
What I used are Trickflow 170 heads, Comp Ultra rockers, Trickflow Box R intake, Hooker comp headers, and got a bigger Aeromotive fuel pump also.
Last weekend I stripped it down and put it all back together.
Today the car went to liverpool exhaust where they matched the headers up to the magnaflow exhaust.
Once the rain stops I'll take it for a spin and see the gains. Dyno will come soon....500rwhp here we come!

Just had the car retuned with the new heads/headers. Made 400rwhp at 8psi on very conservative timing.
Have to fix a leaky meth nozzle and add a catch can, and then head back in a couple weeks to add some timing in there.

The car previously made 330rwhp on 11psi with the hipo exhaust manifolds and gt40p heads.

ha ha nah I think I'll keep the boost here for now until I do a dart block down the track.

I actually put the smaller pulley on it briefly, but there was belt issues and it kept throwing the belt off. It made 17psi at 5800 before it threw the belt, so it was probably a smart move to go back, otherwise I doubt my block would last very long.

Once we get the timing sorted it might make closer to 450rwhp, but that's enough for now either way. It's only at 20dg right now.

The last couple of days I decided to neaten the trunk up and I didn't like a few things I did originally.
Replaced the moroso battery box with a Taylor aluminium one, put the fuses inside the box and added an isolater switch. Added a 12" sub, and tried to play with vinyl. looks better in the photos, but I definitely do not have the patience to play with vinyl. Would carpet everything if I did it again, much easier and you don't see any wrinkles/bubbles.

nice work Husky,

it looks very neat and tidy!

Where did you source the battery box from, I'm just looking at options for when I relocate mine.

Thanks mate! I sourced it from a mob in australia who sell on ebay. About 180ish I think.
