Very nice mate, your SS looks badass!!
Any plans for other mods? Did you buy it with the extractors etc. in already? Got mine bog stock from an old dude in Canberra and have to save my pennies to get stuff done. Would love a cam but extractors and tune first
Be good to see interior pix - I know SS interiors are the same but have an interest in seeing how they are holding up 5-6 down the track.
Also does WA let u drive a high-powered car on ur P's?
BTW congrats on your purchase! How many kays and what did u pay for it?
Cheers mate, all mods were done before hand. its done 68,000kms on the clock.
And future mods as for now are just probably a clutch upgrade a few months down the track, ill up load a few interior shots tonight
Im off my P's now but no there is no limit to high powered cars in WA - i previous owned a 250kw R33 skyline prior to this
The clutch sounds like it is showing the symptoms mine did before it gave up totally - about a month later. When it went is the pedal dropped to the floor and yeh basically, no clutch! I was lucky to be able to drive it home. When I booked it in to get it fixed I ordered a tow truck that never showed up. When I rang they said they had 'more important jobs' and mine had been pushed back. So I drove it to Burwood from my house myself to make the appointment (abt 15kays thru town - with loads of lights). Point is if u get stuck, it's do-able, just switch off the ignition at the lights and leave heaps of space in front of you for the initial bunny hop!
Got a stage 1 clutch which is nice and tight. Was abt 2.2K but seeing as it was not that much dearer than a Holden one and a lot stronger, it was worth it. Also the stocko clutches can't be bled, so had a bleeder hose put on it too. Maybe get this done when u get urs.
What brand of zaust you got? If it's Xforce and u have the headers and cats I'd love to see a vid of it - currently i have just a 3" Stainless XForce cat back but want to upgrade to the full system and wouldn't mind hearing it.
If u can afford it, go a dark tint like 20% - black on black looks awesome
Not sure on what brand exhaust it but ill upload a vid tomorrow of it
And no self respecting man should not know what kind of zaust he has on his V8 - so check it out!!
Does Active Auto specialise in LSX engines? Might be a good idea to look thru this site for LS1 tuners in WA - ones that do engine mods too. They prolly could give you a better indication of how urgent ur clutch is and what options you have.
Good luck bro!
Oi, also check out fleabay when u know what clutch u want - might grab a bargain
had a toss up between a black or white one when i was getting mine, hardest decision of my young life to date
but when the white one dropped his price so much, couldnt say no lol
looks great, and kms are great too, goodluck with the car
p.s. i'm a self respecting male, and i have no idea what exhaust is on my car
Active Automotive have had alot of experience with LSX engines, they built a VZ Clubsport for a customer that had a 440ci stroker in it. It hauled ass. about 600hp at the rears if i remember
Looks the GOODS mate!
Cheers guys! Lovin the car, just the clutch occasionally gives me the sh*ts lol
Will upload more pictures tonight
some more pictures....
nice looks swet in black
Thanks for the pics! Exhaust vid would be cool ......
sounds tuff as
Dude interior looks sweet. I reckon getting a shorter throw shifter with proper leather boot would set it off nicely, like this: Geniune Holden VY-VZ 6 Speed Leather gear knob with short shifter and boots | eBay
spent all xmas eve afternoon cleaning her...
Love the Black interior with Red touches, gives it a nice clean look. Perfectly lowered too, enjoy it!
Just lowered on SL's. Next mods: Lip Spoiler, Alpine Head unit.
