Ok so me and me bro bought another VK wagz....not getting rid of the white one or anythin, it's just we wanted to try sumfin a little different and didn't wanna use the white wagz to try it in.

The paint isn't tooooo bad.....until ya get up close. But for this one we're just gonna polish the paint, chuck 14" steelies on it with chrome rings, and clean her up to look like a real clean original VK wagon. Gonna experiment a bit under the bonnet tho...

Hopefully should hit the streets within a few months....at least by the end of the year hopefully. :thumbsup:

Anyways here's the beast here....we nicknamed it the Red Rocket! Bought it on Sunday.




Spent about half hour on it Monday, and 2night done a bit more. So far this is where we're at.

1. The bonnet is rooted.

2. The paint has clear, it's just dirty as f**k in the pic coz I was sitting about 3m behind the tow car on a dirt road while raining so there's dirt spray all over it

2. It was a 202, not a starfire.

3. Manifolds are on the right way.

4. Flow isn't to important when it comes to forced induction (which is the reason I'm not to worried bout using a stock EFI manifold). No way near as important as it is with NA. Trust me, the log manifold WILL work.

The dummy motor is a 308 but it will all be going on a 253 to start with incase sumfin goes wrong....like melted pistons.

These beauties come off a near stock 308 that made 350rwkw at 13psi!

Will it melt the header tank? looks pretty close in the pics. It never ceases to amaze me where you find all your old commodores from, most of them look alright too, not just total pieces of crap.

Ya mean the overflow bottle? If so, not sure, if it melts it I'll put another in but in a diff spot.

There's still alot of old Commodores around. It's not wat ya know, but who ya know. I had 4 VK wagons alone lined up to look at. 2 people didn't get back to me in time, one was a bit overpriced (well I knew I'd find one better and cheaper), and then there's this one which we got.
