Vl Turbo Build
Hey guys thought i chuck up a new thread as it now suits the vl turbo build section

Factory Vl Sl 5sp . was originally red has had a complete color change to abysnth yellow. all painted by my self. first paint job ive attempted . car has gone through several motors. carby 304. efi 304. but have now settled for a rb30 again. motor wise its just a high comp a6 with a small wade cam. stock rebuilt t3 witch will run 10-12 psi.3inch exhaust. front mount, just basic small mods and running a mf5 with a exeddy h/d clutch. interior is just beige sl spec. has a few autometer gauges in where the sunny s holder is. hope to have the car ready by December and enjoy it with summer , few pics enjoy

What a VL!!

Wkd_Vl 03-10-12 18:10

thanks mate. pretty happy with it. still lots to do and improve on. would like to get the interior redone

bewsh 04-10-12 12:41

mate im thinking of doing the same thing, prices of BT1's are rediculous, 15k for a pretty ok one, 20k for a perfect one.

All i want is to cruise around in a yellow VL turbo, this idea is perfect!

Which suburb u from mate?

Wkd_Vl 04-10-12 17:35

yer true org bt1 in yellow is a small most of them aint in the best nick. holes in engine bay. cut parcel trays etc

i was lucky with mine. it was a one owner and looked after very well

im from bayswater area mate

well stock setup is history. new setup so far is gktech cooler kit. gt35/40, turbosmart 38mm gate. still saving for the fuel system. but coming along nicely




MUS 17-02-13 21:04

Well done bro. Looks mint!

Wkd_Vl 20-02-13 18:45

cheers bud. its getting there oh and forgot to say its got a wade 1147 cam in her now to

MUS 20-02-13 23:27

Nice.. What are your power expectations?

Wkd_Vl 21-02-13 05:27

would be happy with 250rwkw :)

MUS 21-02-13 06:47

Mmmm so would i :D

Wkd_Vl 21-02-13 19:45

through a 5sp to hehe

MUS 22-02-13 22:12

Do you think the mf5 will handle that kind of power?

Wkd_Vl 23-02-13 07:14

will see haha its got a exeddy h/d clutch in it. but i honestly dont think it will last. so when the gearbox breaks im going for a rb25 box. for the price of mx7 i might as well spend the extra and get the 25box

MUS 23-02-13 14:54

Yeah bro i agree... For the price of a mx7 these days i have seen half cut rb25s going for abit more or less!. Not worth it at all.

Wkd_Vl 15-03-13 20:38

small vid of it trying to idle haha and lack of exhaust 8

Wkd_Vl 18-03-13 17:53

uploaded it on youtube. not everyone has facebook lol

MUS 18-03-13 21:31

I cant watch either! Facebook says its not available and Youtube says its private LOL

Wkd_Vl 15-05-13 21:41

well bit more done. exhaust is now 3inch turbo back. installed a msd 6al and msd ss coil. ordered a nistune. still deciding on injectors
