2002 VY Holden Calais Supercharged L67

General Information

Owner: Ozzie
Year: October 2002
Model: VY
Make: Calais Sedan
Engine: 3800 L67 Supercharged V6
KMs: 135ooo
Colour: Quicksilver

The original owner purchased her new in Victoria in 2003 and owner her up until 2013 then listed her on eBay with a "blown head gasket"
A friend won the bid and had her transported over to South Australia where she sat in his yard for two years being started every now and then.
I purchased her cheap off my friend in 2015 knowing that she may have a blown head gasket and the work began!
So my initial hunch was that it wasn't a blown head gasket at all, and I was right. Turned out it was the water pump! a $60 part could it really be that simple?
So she was born again.

Here is a list of current work. (Will be updated as I go along)
