I'm posting up a new thread as the old one was lost.

Model - 1991 VP HSV Enhanced Calais
Colour - Imperial Blue
Odometer - 138,000km
Transmission - Auto
Exhaust - Twin cat 2.5" system into 3", no resonator
HSV Enhancements:
  • 5L 180kW engine pack
  • HSV 16 x 8 Family wheels
  • HSV Suspension kit
  • HSV Body kit
  • Momo steering wheel
Also has electric sunroof and stereo (JVC Exad hu, Focal splits, Pioneer sub and amp, Alpine V12 amp).

Here are some pics. The first pic was when I first bought it in 2003, it had 103,000km on it.

The rest of the pics are from my mobile and the car is filthy, hasn't been washed in 6 months and has spent the last 4 years living outside :(

Will post up new pics with digital camera and when the car has been fully detailed soon.

Just bought a new house so its going to go into the garage where I can spend some time bringing it back to mint condition like it was when I first bought it.

$530 including fitting and tip.

Used the existing cat and used a second hand one they had in stock.

It originally was installed with a resonator where the intermediates usually go, but I cut it out cos it droned too much. Sounds good now.

Have a listen to Airstrikes VN (he has a soundclip somewhere), as that sounds pretty bloody good. I might think about changing to that setup (twin cat, full twin 2.5" system with a hotdog in each branch with a balance pipe....I think).

i like it.. enhanced ftw!

btw what build numbers yours??

mines 153 (92 model)


btw check the vin with HSV, it will come up.. thats what mine did anyway, came up as 185kw however...
Ah, this thread has been revived. Forgotten about it :p

Odometer is up to 145,000km now.

Its build number 56, its a late Dec 91 model. Those HSV numberplates are now in storage at the RTA in case I decide to sell them.

I have a authentication letter from HSV with the enhancements that are listed in my first post.

Cheers.
