    Gidday,
    I'm Jono, I'm 18 and I live in Auckland, NZ :yeah:

    This is Bruce (like Bruce Banner :D(the hulk for the slow ones)), He's a 92 VP calais V8.

    The only mods I know of at the moment are exhaust and those unfortunate trispoke wheels which will be banished once I get a bit more funding! Any ideas on a few more mods would be well appreciated :p

    I'm pretty happy with him, plenty of up and go and good fuel economy on long journeys!

    Cheers,
    Jb

    P.S, I found him inside and on the front cover of the book "Holdens on a Plate" by Wayne Stevenson:

    Looks nice mate, i love VP calais. Just ditch those wheels. Get something that compliments the car.
    Is she just a stocker? Got plans for her?

    Yep he's pretty much stock, might stick him on a dyno soon to see what the story is. Any ideas on some mods to gain a bit of power?

    Just the usual to get you going would be full exhaust, a tune, decent CAI. Pretty standard stuff to start with. Then you can go for a set of diff gears to get your accelleration a bit better.

    looks nice man, i like the painted grill, what engine? v8? sweet, put some clear VT side indicators in it for a cheap mod, then just do all your bolt on mods like exhaust n cold air first, then do the diff
