    Vs Barra ute

    This has been in my mind the last year, but nothing could happen till the VC moved on. Cliffs. Daily vs poverty spec ute with 400,000 km, column shift, bench seat. Body is clean but engine and suspension very tired. Aim is to keep it simple, mild hp so 280-300 rwkw, aircon, powersteering, cruise control. All under $10k. Nothing crazy, just solid and reliable but plenty of fasts. Engine will only get valvesprings and injectors once tuned, gearbox left standard, standard convertor, use vs column shift, leave 3.08 gears but LSD, upgrade intank fuel pump, front mount intercooler, factory loom and ecu, just splice into vs and keep factory dash

    Picked up full ba Barra conversion with 4 speed btr, loom, ecu, tailshaft, pedal box, etc etc. Guys at Ballarat performance wreckers were super nice and a grand cheaper than anywhere in Melb. Drove up this afternoon and got it all.

    Nastysven care of stocky donated two coolers. Also bought a 2nd hand bf airbox and pod. Picked up a vs V8 K frame today as well.

    Tomorrow I pickup all the new shocks, springs, control arms and bushes. Also from tuffcarparts I pick up injectors, valvesprings, 3" catback exhaust, 3.5" cat, 460 lph intank fuel pump and torque lock LSD.

    Anyhoo, want to get it on the road as soon as possible say less than a few months

        Barra makes good sense for easy power & reliability.

        Bet that made a racket with mudflaps scraping.
        an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

          Nice one mate, 400 horsies is plenty to daily punt around and more powers are simple enough if you ever get bored.

          Happy to come and help if you need a pair of hands after work

              What LSD are you using? I was going to reuse the spool in mine. Will this ever hit a track with corners?

                    Tuffmounts/Muscle Garage has all the conversion gear for this - Jason is doing the same swap ATM for his Drag Challenge car.

                            I know, I've always wanted to do a barra commodore

                            This should be an easy 11 second car with a mild combo
                            I own a two and a half litre Commodore
