    LS1 Torana

    Plans are for a nice LX streeter that also has a little poke and can also turn a corner or two. Stocky looking SS interior, no flares, nice rims etc.

    Brakes
    Fronts: 330mm Commode rotors, Nissan GTR calipers
    Rear: Nissan GTR Calipers, Z32 rotors


    Diff: VL Commode

    Engine/Box: LS1 (VY HSV) + T56


    Wheels: Rota RB 17x9.5 Rear, 17x7.5 Front



    Progress so far:
    Front brakes adapted and sorted (brackets made and out being coated atm)
    Camaro sump received, next step is to cut and shut to clear the cross member. Then rework the tunnel to fit the gearbox.
    Im using CRS mounts, modified camaro sump, custom pipes etc.

    Bodywork is being done on another body. Im using my current car to dummy everything up, then will transfer into the good bodied car. Mine has had a fair hit in the rear qtr and will take a bit of work to fix properly. I'll end up with one good car, and one parts car.

    More photos to come as progress continues.

          Im not too keen on flares and drop tanks. I want to keep it nice and clean. I can fit some decent rubber under the rear without flares, so not sure they will be really needed.

            Nice! Love those rims and I reckon sans flares and drop tank will be a winner!

            What colour are you painting it? I reckon a nice silver with those rims

              It will be yellow. No black outs.

                              Nice! PM's coming soon....
                              Its a sedan. Interior will be based on the stocky SS, but being a sedan will be using SLR door trims.
