Just wondering what you guys think of my tonner ? Im 16 and this has been my project for the past year. I am just about to put a Vx V6 motor in it. and have put 18x8 and 20x10 Coys wheels.

looking nice mate! My tonner is a similar blue and i want to respray soon. Do you know what colour it is?
very nice mate, you should post up more pics and details about the 'tonner. so besides the vx ecotec, what other future plans you got?
Are different diameters front and rear allowed?
Why a V6? Stick a small block in it... 253 or 308.
Yes I did read. Rules? It's his car isn't it?
As for a 253, a Commodore V6 would flog a 253 (and stock to mild 308's for that matter) anyway and do it while using half the amount of fuel. Seams like a pretty smart conversion to me (especially being on P plates), only thing better would be an injected 5 litre or LS1 or if you want old school a Small Block Chev.
V8 laws are ridiculous and you explained why. When a modern NA V6 can beat a classic small block Holden V8.
I suggested a 253 or a 308 because they're a classic engine for the car. It's now always about power.
Fair call on the classic car/engine thing, but injection is the way to go for a daily/frequent driver IMO.
Thanks for all they replies. The colour is 'Arrival Blue' for if anyone is interested in colour.
Regarding the engine - I was going to have a straight 6 bored out and 'hotted up' with triple webers, but this would be using alot of fuel so went for something more practical.
Also on the engines - is surprises me that an EFI 5L has around 170kw yet a new VE V6 ute has 210kw. I think i should be allowed to put an old V8 in ? Stupid RTA !
Even a 253 OR 308 has only around 140 kw or something like that ?
Sorry for the late reply, if you want to know anything else just ask
From what my dad told me it is 'Arrival Blue' i think it may be a ford colour but not sure, hope this helps.
