Dannys VL Calais Turbo(New Zealand)

HI Guys,thought i may as well get my act together and load the mods and pics up of my car.

Well il start from the start,brought the car as a N/A Auto VL Calais about 2 years ago for $2800 NZD.little bit of rust ect,but quite tidy.

First i converted it to a manual,which was'nt too bad and was cheep,

Next was mags,i chose 18"inch Chrome MOMO GTR Rims with Falken 452 tyres,and put Super Low Lovells springs and lowered VL V8 Kyb Shocks and a adjustable panhard rod.at the same time i got the calais tinted with 35% tints all round.

Sounds went in the way of Pioneer 60w x 4 DEH-P1Y headeck,2x Pioneer 6x9's,Pioneer 4"inch Front Speakers,2x DUB 12"inch 800w Subs with 800w AMP.(but hey,who needs a stereo when you have got a 45mm wastegate venting to the ground lol)

And then i got sik of the gutless RB30E and brought a Factory RB30ET Engine to drop in it with a RB30 gearbox.(will list specs and mods of motor below),added a 600x300x76 intercooler to the front of the car with a GK Tech intercooler kit attached to it.

And since the engine transplant i have blowen four gearboxes lol,cant quite handle the power.

Next on the car will be RB25DET Gearbox,injectors,adjustable fuel regulator,Full alloy Radiator,Front Facing Plenum and either LINK or Microtech ECU.feel free to ask any questions about the car.

-10.5mm Eagle Ignition Leads
-NGK Iridium Spark Plugs
-K&N Air Filter
-Microtech LT-12 Ecu
-6 coil Set Up
-De Loomed Engie Bay
-Turbosmart Adjustable Fuel Regulator
