    Circuit VL commo - HSVSUX

    Made 652hp and 580ftlbs on engine dyno

    Gearbox:
    Um, auto........ (best part of the car - serious!)
    Manual VB, billet servo, kevlar band, race/more clutches, all KEAS parts, thanks Paul for your help and supplying parts

    Diff:
    BW- fully welded housing, shortened 40mm, 9" axles, 3.08 / 3.23, spool

    Brakes:
    Front - alcon 323mm x 32mm race rotors, billet hats and Wilwood billet differential piston SL 4 pots
    Rear - wilwood 310mm x 21mm race rotors, wilwwod hats and Wilwood dynalite 4 pots
    wilwood firewall mount pedalbox, 2 x tilton masters with bias adjuster in dash
    3" ducts

    Suspension:
    Koni DA all round, king race coils, custom bars, turetted rear with true coil overs, rose joints throughout. 17 x 10 arrow wheels (BBS 3.6mm shells) dunlop D11 slicks 265/625/17

    Upgrading a few things at the moment like: intake manifold, camshaft, valvesprings, cooler pipes, bigger cooler, rear wheels, turbo, 2nd 044, Fibreglass bonnet and bootlid, smaller fuel tank etc etc

    season starts again in september, cant wait

    Whoa, very nice mate.

    A damn sight better than the 99.9% of VL turbos that frequent bankstown square and brighton le sands.

    Thats dash looks so clean too mate very nice.

    Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate it.

    the auto is fantastic on the track, in the wet especially, it is very cheap for the trq and abuse it handles and is soft on the running gear, so no breakages...getting away fast off the line is great too.
