So here is the new addition to the family.
The Mrs has named it it Oscar.
Its an 03 VY SS
6 speed manual
19 inch Ox wheel ox653's (First set in the country)
Stainless exhaust, ceramic coated, twin 3 inch with high flow catbacks
Kenwood dnx 7320 head unit
It will be going on the dyno soon and getting a MAF-less tune and cold air intake.
I also am going to put some spacers behind the wheels so they sit flush with the guards.
i'll see how that all goes before deciding what to do after that.
P.S. i didn't find this area till i was told about it and i put it in the vy section so if any mod wants to delete the other one... would be good. thanks.
so i'm upgrading the brakes because this looks crap.
Ocsar the Ss :: 102_1027.jpg picture by s8rx7 - Photobucket
was wondering if any one has used these kits or dealt with this company before.
Performance Car Parts - D2 Holden/HSV VT-VU-VX-VY-VZ 8 Piston Front Big Brake Kit (356X32mm Discs)
it will look heaps better full of brake and i have a f1-r procharger kit coming for it so i need to get the stopping bit in order first.
Looks good so far.
You're one of the only people I've seen actually do the brakes before performance.
The way it should be, but we're all too power hungry :P
Just a note, try posting up with [IMG] tags, as links suck.

Wicked rims mate. Sweet rig
so time for an update
what iv'e done is stuff all but i do have a growing pile of parts. i'm going to wait for it to get big enough then take a week of and go to town on it.
what i'v done so far:
got a free dyno tune FTW
10% underdrive kit
heavyduty exedy single plate
whats in the pile:
3.9 diff center
higgins ported heads (11.1/1 comp ratio)
ramjet otrcai (still deciding if i want to get rid of it for a 8 throttle body velocity stack manifold)
harrop big brake kit
ripshifter (but i did find a sequential shifter that converts a "H" pattern but i think it will suck on the street like that)
things still to get:
cam but i need to work out what specs (any idea it will be a road/circuit car)
strut brace (any recomendations) and some stiffer sway bars
things i'm looking into:
need to work out if this is going to push the injectors to 100% duty cycle or not and if it does what to replace them (and possibly fuel pump) with
also been looking (but not seriously) at the motec m800
i'm not all that interested in final numbers on a dyno sheet i just want to build a brawler n/a engine that will be good on the track, but also be usable on the street, i might take it to the strip once to see how it goes as well.
once its all done i'll truck it in, have it all tuned and see how i go but i'm hoping i'll be happy with it because the only thing left after that really is a stroker kit which is a pain in the %^&*
there is probably stuff i forgot but i'll put that up later.
