    Name: adrian
    Model: 1990 vn calais series 2
    Colour: white over silver
    Bodykit: tinted windows, lowered and standard body kit
    Engine: 5 litre v8 with cold air intake
    Power: 210kw
    Exhaust: 2 1/2 inch soon to be 3 inch
    Gearbox: auto
    Suspension: superlow king sprongs
    Wheels/Tyres: VY SS mags
    Interior: all leather interior
    Stereo: kenwood system

    future modifications- i plan to do a hell of alot to the motor, i am soon to be installing a 3 inch exhaust aswell as a 71ml yellaterra throttle body. then once i can afford the money and get off my p's i am planning to put pacemaker extractors on it, stage to cam kit a hsv enhanced manifold and injectors, then i am undecided whether i want to supercharge it or throw on a twin turbo on it and stroke it out to 355

    what i am going to do for a body kit will soon to be vn group a kit minus spoiler,bonnet scoop and grille with a vz monaro bonnet scoop.

    interior- all the leather seats are going to be ripped out and replaced due to ware and tare so im going to put vs hsv leather seats in it and i already hav blue neons in the front under the dash board and plan to put a couple in the back.

    sound system- i dont hav much of a system atm i just hav the head unit, a set of 6 inch splits for the front and 6 by 9's in the back, im going to put anouther set of 6 inch speakers in the parcel shelf aswell as just a sub in the boot!

    my calais is atm 210kw and goes from 0-100 in 6.8 seconds, hits between 200-220 in 3rd gear havent been any further due to running out of road, it goes exceptionally hard considering it has done around about 325 000km. i cant show u any photos as yet because all my photos are too big so i will take some asap and post them up on here.

    the 5 litre calais are standard at 168kw all i hav done to hit 210 kw is the 2 1/2 inch exhaust which brings it up an extra 15kw, an ss air inductions cold air intake with 2 inlets which takes that up an extra 16kw, and i hav a bmc air filter which also gains 10 kw so i havent really done that much to boost it!
