Stock Falcon BA Turbo internals except for valve springs. Different turbo and induction on it. The car itself has some modifications, with the standard auto replaced with a C4 and big slicks on the back. 19.5 psi of boost.

Friend of mine just posted his lap around the ring with his kiddo. Car is a MB C Class CDI. Dad of the year?

For those that wonder, he's done over 100 laps at the ring and races out in CA regularly.
That's pretty awesome. I feel I am missing a part of my childhood not being driven around the Ring by my parents, and will blame all my adults issues on that fact

Late 60's so there is a good change they were def too young to ever be in a car without 3 points at the front. Mandatory rear belts mid 70's, the lap seat belt fo the middle passenger was early 90's I think, might have been later.

Middle lap belts were around since the 70s in Australia, the three point version only became popular in the mid 90s, later for hatch backs.

Great episode. That turbo pipe fabrication makes me wonder what sort of stuff they could come up with if they actually devoted some serious time and money into a single project.

I used to love Roadkill and enjoyed some episodes of Roadkill Garage, but since it has moved from YouTube I ignore it now. Plus I get conflicting information on whether MTOD works in Australia, so even if I was going to pony out the cash I can't be sure whether it will work here or not.

They want it as a daily, thus putting in things like air conditioning, electric windows, central locking and other items that the Mini never had at the time.

While it isn't a great collectable car, or desired even by Mitsubishi fans, I am enjoying this Aussie automotive teacher's series of videos on fixing up a 1981-ish Mitsubishi Sigma.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UozIVgKfI6E

Peter has also done series on rebuilding some old Falcons, Toyota Starlet, a few British cars, lawn mowers, motor cycles and a Plymouth Fury

A bonus for me is that he is local to me so a lot of the businesses he goes to I can use as well

A comparison through the Australian Outback and country between the Holden Camira (Holden's J car, a piece of poo poo) and the Mitsubishi Sigma, who was ruling the 4 cylinder roost in Australia at the time.

Hosted by Evan Green, Gavin Green's dad and includes Australian journalists like Peter Robinson (Wheels magazine editor at the time), Noel Tuckey (Bill Tuckey's brother and aka George Ambrose who wrote the Dirty Wheels column in Wheels), Phil Scott and photographer Warwick Kent.

I remember owning the Wheels mag that this comparison was in. I don't know if I still own it
