So im heading to tassie for easter for 2 reasons, im picking up the new wagz and also going up sandy cape in tassie BUT b4 that happens the 80 is getting a bit of "Cranky Enterprises" treatment.

Its getting flip armed, I have one of my good mates onto this already for me.. Hes done 3/4 of it already, should be finished by the time I get home.

Im installing a Safari Front Mount when i get to tas (waiting for me already), wiull be bumping the boost up to around 15psi, also to complement the flip arm i am chucking some 6" Amada extreme shocks in.

Also have a fox wing awning on order, should also be waiting for me when i get home.

how the flip arm stands ATM\

Nah no duramax for the wagon. Biggest reason I bought the wagon is cos it's factory td. Woulda bought a petty for cheap if I was Gunna do another motor conversion.

Already got a beefed up turbo on the way for the wagon.

So once you have the LSX in the ute (lets hope its 427CI) and you have the flipped out maroon wagoon with the big turbo and cooler you will have to change your name

The reasoning behind the change is surely with 2 of the best 80's around you could no longer be cranky?????

Thanks man, it wouldn't really work too well unfortunately mate. But the super flex arms work pretty well and still drive good. Superflex will flex better than the flip. But u can get the flip to drive better

do you think the arms would be flat if i did the flip or would the front of the arm be higher than the front?
