Cory's 2012 SR5 - New Hiflow turbo time!

Postby CORZA on Thu, 11 May 2017 9:17 +0000

Hi guys,

Thought I would do a bit of a build up thread. Basic run down is as follows:

Budscustoms outback front bar
Budscustoms rock sliders
Budscustoms rear bar
Budscustoms under body protection
Budscustoms extended shackles
Budscustoms ECU reflash
Monster rides lift
Safari snorkel
Dual batteries using ARB tray
Tyres are Nitto terra grappler 265/75R16.

Recently I have been adding a canopy for a bit more storage space.

My highlight of the car was a 7000km trip around outback QLD in 2014. We towed our camper trailer and the lux didnt let me down.

Future plans I am currently working on:
Budscustoms front diff drop
New rear springs
Front UCA's
285/75 tyres
Budscustoms internal canopy basket

They are the main bits I guess.

Budscustoms diff drop
Monster rides coilovers and rear shocks
Budscustoms swaybar drop kit

THought I would come back here and update the thread. Over christmas the Wife and I headed up toward Gladstone for some camping. Headed out to Kroombit Tops national park and Baffle creek. Car now has 285 Nitto Terra Grapplers on. I love the canopy, so much more room for storage. On the way back the turbo decided to spit a fin off the exhaust wheel which was pretty annoying.

After looking into my options, I had Motovated turbo in Toowoomba rebuild the factory turbo with a hiflow inlet wheel. I only picked it up yesterday and will get it on and retuned in the next few weeks.

Hows the turbo going? Did you put it on a dyno?

What recovery points have you fitted and do you know if they would work with an ARB delux winch bar? Thanks in advance.
