    Also, how does it go with the cam? How did it effect fuel consumption/power? If you're willing to say, how much was it? Every time I come onto JC I want more power :)

    :D Thanks for the awesome feedback guys and girls :yeah:

    The centre console was a year 12 design project.. Coulda chosen some better guages for it though (One is a temperature guage which I wanna swap for something thats actually useful hehe).

    As for the cam they're around a grand... But I would just go with the stage 3 Crow Cam for anyone out there looking at one...Its like $100 more or so and its definitely worth the money. I was not overly pleased with my cam (value for money wise!)

    I'll post some new pics this week with the VP rear garnish and the door moulds removed with the doors resprayed :)

    i seen the car last night at your work dude.

    Looked neat. I ****ing liked it.
    I looked into your work but didnt see you so kept driving.
    I was debating whether to replace my kit with the vt or the vy clubsport. I have now choosen the vy clubsport kit.

    Maybe a custom vt rear bar though. To make way with the vents at the back.
