Who has one?
Who's building one?

Is there a secret sub cult of these rigs growing?

VLWAGONIT- Your thread is really useful btw - i read it again tonight... ecu, loom, engine mounts, transition mounts, headers, i haven't decided on yet.....

Currently for my tuxedo black SL, I have removed the interior, dash, heater, aircon, RB30 engine computer and loom, transmission, drive shaft.

Leaving the manual rack, brake booster, fuse box, borg warner diff and spool, 4 wheel discs and king springs will all be looked at later....

A professionally commission a compliant ADRA / CAMS cage and fit out after the usual rust / welding repairs, new seals, and sound deadening removed.

The Engine is currentl being engineered to be a high rev 2004 LS1 built with forged pistons, H beam conrods and stroker kit (6.0L). Heads are completed already machined port and polish racing cam shaft package with roller rockers.

Gear box is a short throw, close ratio tremec t56 with 11" clutch and flex plate

Drive shaft - Custom Heavy Duty 2 piece driveshaft 1350 yokes and 110mm CV

Diff - borg warner full spool

Suspension, brakes, camber kit, bushes, sway bars, ill have to do some research into yet.

I still recomend pacepaker for the mounts, i went the crs kit for the starter relocation as it was cheaper but it doesnt interfere with anything. Pacemaker headers fit with no modifications using their mounts as well

Great advice. With the pacemaker headers and mounts and a manual rack, will I still need the starter relocation kit?

some people have gotten away without it but it depends on what headers you use, the Pacemakers run through where the starter originally sits

Have heard of guys using VT-VX LS1 exec (non cruise control) throttle cable, not easy to track down from wreckers though.

Mates one in Collie uses one of the "EFI Conversion" ones Jack

I the same one (but Torana version). Pretty decent and easy to mod to suit. All the mods are done pedal side.
