I had a Calais and went from 2.92 to 3.45.
Really wakes the auto up.
They look great....go for it !!!!!!!
Just something for the auto as well.....look at a deep dish pan to stop any flaring between gears.
Would you consider the new Ford Focus RS at all..???
The engine will rev high before selecting a gear.
Had a VE Calais V8....changed the diff from a 2.92 to a 3.45. Had to get it recalibrated because the speedo was out & also change the auto shift...
Wrong.....your speedo would have been out.
Nice car.....just a question, whats 380 ATW ???, (im assuming horsepower)
Id say the o2 sensors are rooted...
So you gained 65kW at the engine from a OTR, Maf Tune and cat-back......:hmmm:
If all you want is more sound, a 3" cat back exhaust will be all you need.
no they wont....
You'd be better off leaving the standard air box in. Ive seen dyno results where the "SS Reductions" set up has actually lost power. Just get an...
No-one is going to pay 5k for a car " just for parts".
Unfortunately its just too expensive.
Yes, its a rare find, but unless someone wants this...
Sounds VERY fishy to me..........what supposed "new parts" is he waiting on...& what was actually wrong with the computer?
If they are stupid...
Where did "I" state that they changed power....please show me.
When I changed mine it was for increased acceleration, nothing more .
Don't listen to people that tell you diff gears wont change anything.....
Nice ride mate......if only Holden could have come up with some better wheels.
And your second mod will be removing it when you fit an OTR.....
Listen to what Foggsy said.
I changed my Calais from the 2.92 to a 3.46lsd. Definitely one of the BEST mods you can do to an Auto.
Pretty sure it may have an engine with 8 cylinders & might even have a SS logo or 2 somewhere on body work.:idea:
Cant believe Holden havent fixed this issue .
It happened in my 2006 Calais & its still going on in 2014.....pathetic :hmmm:
Tune - Intake - exhaust - cam......you will soon forget about your SS being a "base model".
The Dealers will try to screw you over with...
I went from a 2.92 to a 3.46 in my VE Calais.....was definately one of the best mods i did to the car.
Really wakes it up ...as well as being a LSD.
Rip Off ....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cool story bro.....:idea:
People i know that spend 9k on mods, WANT to know what they are getting.
Maybe your dad is right.
Must be a very happy dyno.......
294rwkw for those mods is too high.
Those numbers are what you would expect fom a LS3.

Seems to be ALOT of bugs with the new alert systems.
Surely some of these problems had to occur during testing......
A few gremlins are...
F@@@@@@@@rk me.................enough with the drone/synthetic exhaust note /modulate input / pressure, volume and temperature/ reverse phase...
Insulate the boot with bubble wrap, turn the radio up, and change the exhaust to a single 1 3/4...
