This is George's VL turbo which started off just as a normal stock 6 in maroon. George then stripped everything out of the car, including the motor, gearbox, brakes, and basically everything else that needed to come out. Quite a job as you could imagine! George then found a smashed VL turbo wagon for sale for $3000 which only had minor front end damage, and a smashed radiator. This didn't matter though, as he already had a spare one.

Not wanting to have his motor run into troubles after the effort of installing it into the car, George send the motor off to be reconditioned. The block was bored 40 thou' oversize, ceramic coated pistons were installed, the block was o-ringed and the head was ported and polished. The motor was returned to George like new.


While everything was out of the engine, it was resprayed first in wild violet purple. Some small changes were then made after, and the final colour is the violet purple base with lilac pearl and black mixed in to create something unique, and it looks very classy indeed.


The car was then taken home after the engine bay had been sprayed, and the new motor was installed with the turbo, turbo auto gearbox, LSD and brakes, all from the Berlina wagon.


Unfortunately, although the motor was new, the turbo wasn't, and this only lasted 2 days before it died. This was then sent off to Dynamic Turbo be hi flowed and was returned not long after.

Once it was reinstalled, and the car was running again, the car was sent back to the smash repair place again and it was stripped down to bare metal to be ready for spraying.


Once it was sprayed in the same colour and tints as the engine bay, the car was taken home. The bumpers were sprayed in light silver in 2 tone, similar to a calais colour scheme. All of the lights and other bits and pieces were put back on the car, and the roof lining was removed which has made way for new suede roof which is a dark tan leather colour. This matched the leather door trims and seats which are to be installed just before Summernats 04.


Since then, an intercooler was bought and installed by George's mate Tuffy. The rocker cover has been resprayed in the same colour as the exterior of the car. A Turbosmart boost controller was added to the car and the boost set to 15psi.


The LTSJET plates were then put onto the car, and it was driven around on some chaser rims in this form for a while, as seen in the pics. However the chasers have been discarded now, and the latest VY GTS 19" rims in black chrome have been fitted, and the car lowered 4 inches.


At the moment the car has been pulled off the road while it is prepared for Summernats 2004. The development list for the Nats includes;

* Mini spool diff with 3.9s to replace the LSD
* Custom Plenum Chamber
* JPC Cam
* 3" Hi flow exhaust
* Modified Jatco 4spd box fitted with 3500rpm stally
* EMS computer
* Bigger Bosch fuel pump
* Larger injectors
* 4 gauges - water temp, fuel and oil and monster tacho
* Leather interior will all be installed
* Custom Alloy Radiator


You can contact George on the message board with the username LTS-JET.
