Not bad mate! Any specs on it? I like the look of the reverse cowl scoops but only when they're fully finished on the bonnet and not added on like yours is, sorry!

Hello stranger stroke it you know you want to lol.
Just put a real motor in it
Get some cubes up ya, Cliff lol
it's been 12 months since i've updated this heres a couple of recent pics of the calais. i've also put in the 3800 converter a b&m quiksilver shifter replaced all the suspension and a 28 spline 4.11 lsd. i'm also about to put a fuel cell in the boot and redo the exhaust so it exits under the number plate and then we are removing the exhaust cut out in the bumper should look good when it's done.
looks either to high in the front or to low in the back. Nice looking vk calais 5L tho
Check out my ride here >>>>My VX Raptor

nah that looks nice mate beautiful colour too. just what i wanted to do my VK
ever since the day he was born, fluffy knew that he was not like all the other 454's. "GO AWAY and play in your silverado C3500" they would all say to him, laughing and snickering as he slowly loped away in his truck with his lowly 530NM of torque. but one day, one day, Fluffy knew he would grow up to power a 66 impala, and would be the talk of all the other 454's.
looks nice mate.what did the manifold set you back and what brand is it
the calais has gone quiker 13.1 1.9 60 ft 104 mph still wheel spinning. so now on the 9th of april heading down with some et streets to run into the twelves.
Ah nice mate. My motor was similar to urs except with a smaller cam, stock electrical system, bosch leads, and a 750 vac sec. Made 174rwkw and still leaning out a bit. Chucked a 750 dp and bigger fuel pump on there but killed the motor b4 we got it back on the dyno lol. It's good to see another motor with similar specs making similar power. At first I thought sumfin wasn't right coz I was aiming for 150rwkw and didn't even think it would get that! lol.
Keep the updates coming along.
Update went to the drags Saturday night and run a new pb 12.8 @ 105.1 1.8 60ft. Unfortunately killed the gearbox so if there is anybody in Brisbane with a spare trimatic lying around send me a pm. I'll put some pics soon.
