Hey fellas Will 285 75 x16 fit under a 04 gu wagon ok or do you have to cut some of the guard and mudflap out of the way on the front ? I had to with my GQ when i put them under it.. I am buying dick Cepeks fc2 s should be good according to reports.The other thing i'm wondering is I keep getting water in the pass side on the floor under the carpet cant see where its coming from? Have sprayed the wheels and added glitter in the clear,looks schmick I reckon post-1194-0-00948600-1409701225_thumb.jp

Have you had the windscreen changed recently? If you had than the installers have not sealed it properly and/or as usual the grill panel between windscreen and bonnet has got these grommets which needs to be replaced and sealed when removed for whatever reason...

The other possible reason is the big wiring harness grommet. Tyres will fit but scrub at full lock a little.

 

Cheers

Thanks RUmcajs, seems you are the only person that replies ,I will get my mechanic to check when it goes in for tyres next week, Young fella switched on, Spends nearly all his waking hours fiddling with cars, Did my nads stuff for me , Put in a 2 stage system for boost on the turbo fantastic, job works well . first boost is a round 14 and the big boost for towing. is about 18 works really well,  Now down to around 11 Lper 100k pretty damn good for a big vehicle. I used to do all this crap myself ,too old now to be jumpin all over these cars and I,d rather give some young guys a bit of work .

As I will be looking at getting NADS done when I get my GU, can you give me an idea of the price. most people tell me to do it myself, but if its cheap enough would rather pay someone to do it properly.

 

Thanks

Hey Skid yeah mate bet you wish you were in Tassie . My mechanic charged me 3 hours, he had  it all day I picked it up at 630 pm from him,He did more than I asked him as well.I reckon the thing to do is just buy the Dawes valves, egr plate I think theyre about 7 or 8 bucks ,then the boost gauge, get a good digital one and pyrometer for the EGT. I fucked up with this bought a cheap one it goes really well but its got about 8 different colours and theyre bloody bright you can turn it off but you gotta go through all the different colours to get there .You can have a go at making a catch can yourself there's some pretty damn good pics on here for making it and you'll be set. Oh and thanks BIG GQWesty for the info stilll looking, kick myself everyday for selling my GQ was unstoppable beast.
