Coleyz 600rwhp 9.7@146mphsec VL turbo [now:8.85 @ 155mph]

Stolen and Recovered.

Shaun’s VL turbo was due to be one of the first cars to enter the feature car section of this forum back in December 09 / January 2010. With the car nearing completion it was a sure thing, until disaster struck. Read on to find out what happened.



The ingredients for a quick street VL turbo are pretty simple really. Install ‘cooler, exhaust – add boost. That’s how Shaun’s began when he first purchased it back in 2006. With interceptors all ‘round and a pretty neat paint and body scheme things were peachy.
As with most young men Shaun discovered boost and going fast were healthy ingredients and worked on the philosophy of ‘If some is good, more is better’.




He went up to Summernats 2009 and worked out what he wanted from his VL. It must be clean, fast and able to be entered in to the odd show or two. He decided to rebuild the car in time to show at Summernats 2010.
It all started out with an engine rebuild. Some forgies, a 35/40, JD Custom plenum, ICE ignition and a few other go-fast parts. The engine is backed by a 3-speed full manual trimatic auto with a 5000 convertor which takes the punishment of the 310rwkw developed by 22psi being force-fed into the RB30.




For those emotional VL turbo fanatics it’s time to grab a box of tissues for the tears, that’s if you aren’t already using one gorking at the photo’s.
On the second night of Shaun’s 2010 Summernats expedition the VL was stolen. Some low lives had snuck in to where he was staying and pinched three cars – This being one of those three. Shattered is probably an understatement in trying to describe Shaun’s feelings at this stage. So much time and effort put in to complete this car and someone thought that they would just take what they couldn’t create themselves.




With a reward on offer for the return of the car and tips and leads from calaisturbo.com.au users the car was rumored to be hidden in Sydney somewhere. As it happens the information was good. The car thief was arrested and the car returned to its rightful owner with only a few minor pieces missing.





Once it was finally back in Melbourne and everything was returned to its former glory Shaun decided to stretch the VL’s legs at Heathcote and see what this bad boy could muster. He managed to run 11.20 @ 128mph off the foot brake – A quick street-car in anyone’s book. He’s eager to break in to the 10-second zone and the mile-per-hour is indicative of this.



There’s a 2 speed Power glide getting ready to be slotted in place of the ‘traumatic’ 3-speed to assist in proving the car to run 10’s as well as give Shaun the piece of mind that the driveline is up to the task and not going to leave him stranded somewhere.



Shaun’s future plans for the car are pretty realistic and he’s not setting further goals beyond that until he gets what he was originally aiming for. It’s neat, it’s street and it can enter a show but it’s just that 10 second time slip that is missing at the moment.
Somehow I can’t imagine that Summernats 2011 is on the cards.

This makes me want a white VL so bad The quality of this car is right up there with the best street/show cars, the owner should be very proud.
Also, Brett, great photography! I'm assuming you used Photoshop or the Photoshop editing software to get such a great finish?
Also, do you mind me asking what camera/attachments you were using & a rough cost?

I do use photoshop. This one a little more than the others only to adjust the light as it was on sunset when we were shooting.
I used a Canon 1000D (Basic DSLR) with a remote flash, 18-55ml lense and polarising filter.

Thanks for the comments
