Hey guys im new to just commodores, so i thought i would just post up some info on my car. Its a VY SS series 1 in heron white , picked it up for $16000 with only 76000 kms on it , it was a steal lol. I havent spent much on it just the usual, with BTA motorsport doing a custom dyno tune and OTR , pacemaker headers , and the previous owner has chop shopped the factory exhaust , i just bought some replica VE GTS rims for it and had a double DIN DVD player head unit installed
Future plans are to get hold of a leather interior , lower it and get a cam for her and if funds permit i would love to go down the vortech route lol Ill post pics up when i get home my iphone wont let me do it thanks guys
i think i did it right guys let me know if it worked or not

Sounds good, cant wait for the pics.....
Haha yeah shouldnt be too long before i have some pics up just waiting to get some internet sorted at my new place ended up making 231rwkw on the tune with factory cats and exhaust ( but with the pacies on ) anyone got an idea what i should make with 100cpi cats and a catback , recommendations on what would be a good exhaust would be helpful too
Sounds like a nice pick up mate. 16G with such low Ks is great! 231rwkw is a decent number, should be a bit better with 3" cats and a good 2.5/3" cat back. Kinda wish mine was a 3" just for a tougher/louder sound but the tight sound of the 2.5" is good in its own way! Just depends what you want. Do you know what sort/size cam you're getting?
Im not 100% sure on what cam to get , i just know i want at least 300rwkw if possible ive heard theres a few cams out there that would get me pretty darn close just gunna have to shop around and talk to my tuner i think
Yeah ive heard a few things too after i bought them tho but ill have to just see how they go lol been on nearly a year without a single hassle so hopefully they go ok
hey guys put some photos of the car up just some quick one i took this morning needs a wash and there a few things getting tidied up this week let me know what you guys think
yeah it needs a few things done to it before im happy though, going to go kings SSSLs in the back and SL or SSL in front and get the front bar guide replaced to fix the gap in front bar then high flow cats and cat back , my mate is an auto trimmer so im getting an interior done fairly cheap then the hunt for power will be on
hey guys just an update fixed the missing centre cap ( 20 bucks off ebay lol much better than the 42 bucks holden wanted for one ) . I also ordered king springs SSSL for the rear still deciding how low to go on front at the moment and i may have a manual conversion coming its all starting to come together a bit now still a lot to do before im happy though
Hey mate car looks mint but just letting you know its a series 2 one not a series 1
Ahhh ok lol how do i tell i have no series 2 badges and as far as i knew the series 2s had a black roof lining mine is grey
nice tidy ride mate.
keen to keep updated with your upgrades
Still bit to do yet
Powder-coat wheels black , White cars with black wheels = Win.
Nice car mate VY's are just awesome...nuff said.
if you keep the right load rated tyres on your wheels, and try dodge the massive potholes, you should be fine with replicas
love a white holden and very good price for those kms, some of us just get lucky
what head unit have you got in there?
Yeah i was thinking bout powdercoating black but a few guys have said the heating part they do to the wheels can weaken them ?? And DSLXIK ive got the Philips CED1700 just a basic one for now
nice man, good buy for those km too!
Thanks man at the moment im trying to see if its possible to use AV-IN or usb to display engine parameters from ECU on my DVD head unit i dunno if its its possible but it would be cool
Mine has satin badges and thats the way they resprayed her after some tool left his signature across the front in a shopping centre car park lol
Wooo springs arrived today gunna put SSSL in the rear and SSL in the front , i think i may have to roll guard lips in the fronts i have 225/30/20s on the front i think any help would be appreciated is anyone using this set up with unrolled guards ???
Nice looking ride and good price.
