    vlt 13's for $1300.

    G'day cunts.
    After stalking this forum ages ago when I had a boosted rotary vehicle and coming and going as vehicle flavors came and left i've decided to contribute.

    In the form... of 13's for 1300$

    Found a pos spec VL thats rego. Has a rb20det in it from a 32. Greddy FMIC, Blow off valve, 17 inch VY wheels, exhaust, manual, boost controller t peice, 044 intank pump and a few other things.

    Set me back $200 with a massive bottom end knock. Still managed to drive home which was nice.

    Started pulling it apart. Found a heap of boost leaks and unplugged things like TPS and where they had just snipped the boost gauge line and shit. So after this I know i'd have to get a new motor so I started
    trawling forums and shit and ebay for a replacement. The turbo also appears to be a rb25det turbo.

    Ended up finding a good second handy up here in Darwin for $800. This motor has previously made 240rwkw @15 psi in a r32 that had injectors, tune and a kkr430 turbo. Very strong motor and came with a new enough brass button execedy race clutch or what ever.

    So I have $300 for incidentals and new clamps and things like this. I'll grab some photo's tomorrow when we pull it out.

    I don't know the weight that I will unload
    i wish I could relapse another time

    Cool, I always thought a VLT/R31 would be a good contender

      Me too but I think the rb20 will struggle

          I actually gave away two RB20's (missing turbo/injectors) a year ago. I couldnt even get $200 for them.

              For sure, rb20 just don't seem to go anywhere

                Well the motor thats going in it tomorrow/monday ran a healthy 238rwkw with simple mods.
                http://www.calaisturbo.com.au/archiv.../t-102154.html
                From what i've read ^^ all be it alot of them are hard to understand with their lebo drawl and ulehs but a few people are running into the tens with 250rwkw.
                Im just gonna put 18 psi through it on the stock rb25det turbo at the drags and see what happens. Will get the afr's and timing looked at so I can do some skids. The drags aren't open up here for another few months while it's the wet season.
                Also found a mini spool for $50 with super awesome whine(bearings are farked apprently).

                So $1050.

                Also could probably find a pair of used street slicks for a carton of piss from a few blokes I know. I don't reckon it'll be too hard.

                After i've blown the box up i'll be moving onto a manually shifted auto and a stall.

                Lars, a bloke up here with a gay pink VLT ran an 11 with 200rwkws.







                It does actually have the other 17 it's just got a nail in it. Treads are brand new and came with a brand new battery.
                winning.

                  tyres are free, so spend as much as you want on them

                  PS the challenge is over so no chance of winning a black wooden dick or what ever the token prize was.
                  Good luck with it enjoy your self

                    More of a personal challenge then anything. Trying to get a few mates keen on buying Vls r31's and shit and having a bit of a comp but most of them are tight ass'. So at least sticking to a cheap guideline with hopefully achievable goals. After I've done the 13 in the budget ill start progressing with the car and making faster on the cheap. Wouldn't mind 280rwkws with an auto and street slicks and running consistent 10's - 11's and driving home with the bub and Missus.

                        What're the torque differences between an rb20 and rb30 at similar powers Does anybody know?

                          I would assume a fair bit as 50% bigger is a reasonable advantage, all other things being equal

                            it'll work. strip the fuck out of the car. You can pull 100kg from it if you are dedicated.
                            Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

                              What do these things weigh? Are they a fair few kgs heavier then a 31 or 32?
