    Project Drag Pig Executive v2.0

    Started gathering parts for a new drag pig toy.

    First up I'll be chasing the LS1 A4 unopened record, then will see how much is left in it before even considering the outright stock engine record which is 11.01 and probably completely out of reach

    Picked up the most important thing first!
    A brand new VZ Executive front bar :rotflol:



    Shown here mocked up with my spare intake manifold and OTR.
    Neither of which will probably make it on the car in it's final guise but it makes a nice picture.

    Also picked up a new VZ radiator for cheap too:





    Just need to fill in the middle bits which is why I'm picking up this:



    VT SS w/99,000ks that got driven under the back of a truck should be a nice drivetrain for me

    The crash sheared the plastic oil filler and cap off and filled the head with bits of black plastic. Will pick that shit out I guess

    I'm on the hunt for a VY/VZ executive to cannibalize for a bodyshell but just need to sell my current LS1 first for an injection of funds.

    Hoping to get it running and on the track at Heathcote for the LSX Shootout in April. We will see.....

    Gives me a wonderful excuse to piss off the cam and 853 heads and slot in a brand new GM factory LS1 cam and new set of 241 heads with new LS7 lifters and LS6 valve springs.
    How do you chase an unopened record when your pulling heads and changing cams and shit ???

          Thank god it's not blue or a M6. I'd hate to lose my title.

          Suppose this is the only place you can talk about your car now, huh?

            Lol. Yeah I don't post about my cars on LS1 anymore, just general and tech stuff.
            I'm on a few forums and I'm an active member of The QLD Shitsrirrers Club.

            Maybe I'll find a Vespers Blue VY cheap :D

                I don't really understand the amount of money people spend chasing stupid car specific records.

                I am going for fastest vk, 304 , single turbo, e85, trimatic, salisbury record. Hope I get it.

                  Yeah I understand that. Mine is unfinished business.
                  No unopened LS1 has ever run an 11 second pass in QLD so I want to do that first.
                  Then the A4 unopened record that has stood for 3 years is only 0.3 or 0.4 away.

                  I find it more of a challenge to get a standard engined car running quick than just throw a cam and heads or FI on it and go fast the easy way

                      and wtf is an 'unopened' LS1? Does it still have the factory oil in it? or have you opened the sump plug?
