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

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?

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

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.
