      There's a couple of quick VS's with Holden based engines running IPRA here in NSW. I reckon they'd be a good thing as they are lighter than the VT onwards, but get the advantage of "late model" big rubber...

      Would love to see an LS1 VS but i thought squeezing it in there would be a major pain in the arse...

      Adam - Can't wait to see this thing finished mate !

                          Few more parts fitted over the weekend and just waiting to get the extractors back from being HPC coated . The pipes required some creative bending with an oxy to help clear the floor and the drivers side rail , the arent a bolt in but are close enough for a back yarder to fiddle with them to clear most problems. The do sit pretty much on top of the crank angle sensor so some heat wrapping of the loom is a must along with a the starter motor wires .





                          As you can see from the pics that with the manifold on it sits quite high requiring a hole in the bonnet and scoop which isnt a problem for me as its a track car anyway , the factory EFI system wouldnt have any dramas clearing bonnet heights . I do have a 1 inch spacer fitted in those pics but even without it it would be a close call .

                          Should be a runner in a few weeks as im waiting on parts a few little things to finish it.
