Vq series 2. Worked motor,trans,diff
I want to do more work on my VQ2.

I have pacemaker headers and a 3" with hi flow cat.

it has been dyno tuned to 193 rwk.

I have slotted rotors on the front.

What should i do next?

Can i get air bag suspension which keeps the car level during cornering.

Who in the north or east of Adelaide would do the work well?

Assuming it's a V8 cos you'll never get anywhere close to that RWKW from a V6 with an exhaust then do a Cam, nobody likes a stock idle v8 :p

Muscle Garage is the best one to see for old Holden's in SA (They are the same mob that started Tuff Mounts), very knowledgable even though that garage is in the inner south rather than the north it's worth the trip. Not that many are knowledgable with the older stuff anymore. Most performance workshops just want to touch LS's

Also you'll get much better handling from upgraded swaybars and swaybar links/bushes than you will from air bags or spring changes imo.

Thanks Someguy.
Yes a v8 tuned on 98.
Thanks for the recommendation i don't mine down south if the work is good.
I have many car mags, Street Machine has stuff about Muscle Garage so i know they have been around for a while.


Mike. Air bag struts can change pressure individually "accuride" is a good search to start.


Thanks for the replies.



Keep them coming closer is still better if the work is roughly equal.

Diff ratio swap. Hi stall torque converter.
Wider tyres.
Good airbox set up if you don't have already.
Although your rwkw numbers look pretty good already.
