    Doesn't need to be a HSV to be nice as, love it. Makes it better you're spending so much time on the details and the charger is great. Keep it up.

    They are from holden, $140 rrp. DON'T buy the genuine HSV pedals as they look like cheap items and are twice as much as the ss ones.

    Just take the picture of mine to your holden spare parts dealer and order some, Easy to fit too.

    why do your wheels look warped? i think some new wheels would make this look that much better

    Looks awesome now - were the coilovers hard to put in, and could you buy the front and rear seperately?

    perhaps the camera lens? I had these wheels balanced and checked several times while searching for the vibration the car had with the Triangle tyres. they are fine. as for a different set of rims, I'm still un decided as to what will suit.
    But with a baby due in 3 weeks now, I'm in no rush to go spending more money on wheels that are working fine now. If you have something in mind that you think would suit however, I'd love to see a picture.

    Had to buy them as a package. Originally just put the front in, and keep the SSL king springs in the rear with polyairs, as it was carrying loads everyday. now it doesn't so I put the adjustable springs in too.

    They are the most noisiest tyre i've ever had. and the were out of round, both the first and 2nd set (exhange ones)

    Was thinking exactly this, do the real maloo's have the black head lining? never seen one up close.

    Not a bad mockup, the brakes are a great upgrade and look good as well.

    Not sure if they did or not but i've seen a few people do it on the VZ's and think it looks great though. Just a matter of working out whats the best way to do it...

    Looks the good mate, I like the white interior.
    The VZ R8 wheels would suit it nicely imo

    Just spent $550 with Mace, products arrived Thursday morning. 1 day after ordering them.
    25mm manifold spacer, 12mm plenum spacer and 69mm throttle body.

    Fitted up within 2hrs. the manifold spacer gave me the most grieve but only because the instruction
    manual was for a VS that doesn't have the PCV chanel. and the VY does.

    so here are my pics, to help people install it on a vy and to show the after results.

    this ute was supercharged up til 3months ago when the supercharger blew.
    Have gone back to the NA setup but kept the s/c heads etc.

    These mods, give the same low down kick as the factory supercharger.

    So I eagerly awaited this roadshow for about a year. And It was 100% worth the wait.

    Greg was just brilliant, and I can't say enough good things about the quality of his work and quality of his character. I sat and watched him for 10hrs, toiling away with my pride and joy.
    Normally any work being undertaken on my ute on edge about as I have had to many cowboys try and screw me, but Greg was so professional and well prepared. Not once did I feel he was out of depth.

    to anyone still on the fence, Get it done! you won't be dissapointed.

    New pics of the amp and subs setup.

    mid January XMAS time :)
    [​IMG]

    Wiring amp. Had 8AWG amp wire, but the sub was going to protect mode, so got 2AWG instead
    [​IMG]

    Amp and 1 of the subs in custom sub box to fit VU-VZ ute. Kicker 12" comps. 1 behind passenger seat and 1 behind the drivers seat.
    [​IMG]

    I have also installed the JBL 607c in the doors and dash. all speakers are directly wired into the amp and the difference in sound quality is amazing.
