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.

What other mods have been done to hit 210kw?

Look forward to seein some pics man, also where bouts in aus are you from?
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!
