PLEASE tell me about that engine ? Is it an RB ??
With my limited knowledge of RB engines I have only ever seen the "ECCS" on the intake manifold of an RB20. Probably means that is an RB engine but which one who knows.

Re: New member building 1998 Ute V8

Welcome..... This is an insane amount of work but will be ridiculously capable when finished. For anyone else thinking of doing the same or similar it would probably be a lot easier to start with a GQ SUV with coils all round. Please give detail of what you do to the rear suspension as I would love ...

Re: GU Patrol Nudgebar wanted

I gave away two bumpers quite a while back. Both bumpers had nudge bars. One was wrap around, and the other one was the "bikini" type integrates into the bumper.
