    Some more updates, its been a while again, Got some new cree LED H27 globes for my foggies and cree led T10 for parkers, Also got new Bosch O2 sensors in today and it has picked up some power as a result so they must have been old/shagged.

    NOW SOLD Buying a WH

    well a smoothed pipe and MCAI mod can give a worthwhile gain but not as much as a mafless tune and OTR. Heres mine on the dyno getting mafless tune, it made 230kw atw, about as expected with stock everything with VCM OTR and a full exhaust system. next for me will be ls6 manifold and a small...

    Problem with trac controll or diff?

    I'm not sure if the v6 traction control is controlled by the throttlebody and ignition retarding like my v8, but its annoying as fck when I forget it's on and the pedal kicks my foot off lol.

    Commodore Name Sentenced To Death

    They should retire the name when they finish making v8 rwd sedans in Australia, don't disgrace the name with cheaply/poorly built asian cars with chev badges.

    20" wheels on vx exec.

    they will slow the car down and make it handle and ride worse, use more fuel and shake your car apart, but it will look better :P, you can run 245/30 R20 all round, you also have to be very careful of road hazards like potholes, speedbumps, uneven road joins etc depending on the brand of rim and...

    VT to VX tail light and garnish conversion

    LED or non LED neither contain reflectors, making them non compliant with ADR's and therefore unroadworthy. If you want it to be classy get a vx calais garnish and vx calais lights, those altezza lights look tacky imho, but at the end of the day its your car and you will make it how you like it.
