    Commodore of Death (Murray)

    First there was the Sigma of Death (SoD)

    Then came the SoD II, same same but same.

    Next was the Galant of Death (Morgan)



    With the unfortunate demise of Morgan, I was thinking about 'what next' when Rowdy's Wooshodore popped up and a deal was done.

    I got it dropped off at V-Sport so I could have a chance to make space for it at home.
    Rowdy dropped off a whole pile of bits as well as the car, so sorting out what was there etc was one of the first tasks!

    Had some help with putting in the diff and generally making it a rolling shell (Hoonboy helped as well)



    I thought the logical choice for this was a stock LS1 and 6-speed.

    Enter road trip to pick up this shitbox.



    Then it was time to pull it apart



    Once all the useful stuff was out, it went to the scrappie.

      This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

          Hopefully pics are working for most...

          Because i'm soft, this thing is going to have working air con.


          Dash went back in - not as easy as it looks


          Started to splash some silver paint around and then realised the V6 fuel lines wouldn't work


          Swapped with ones from donor car (brake master seems to have appeared as well )

            Without coming across as a total dick, I'm going to assume there's a good reason you pulled an LS1 & 6 speed out of a Running VT and out it into a non-running v6?

            Auto cross project if some description?

              Probs because the V6 has a welded-in cage.

                The Blue one had a large dent in the driver's sill - likely hit a pole or something - but main reason is as Bob stated, welded in cage in white one.

                Khanacross/rally car is the final goal.

                    Nice. Gonna be a bit different experience, LS is a lot of power on dirt.

                          flame suppression only would be my guess.

                              Pretty loose - as long as it isn't too loud and isn't likely to fall off, whatever you like as long as it exits more than halfway down the car near the perimeter.
