cheers :) yeah i was thinking about debadging it... maybe just keeping the ssz badges and get rid off all the other ones.

Just waiting on a couple of quotes for the exhaust. just getting the cat back half done now as im still undecided about the headers and cam, or if i want to supercharge it later.

Looks good!! Before starting all your planned mods, have your box built first. It saves many headaches as i learnt with my VT's.

Thanks minux, its a newborn as far a gearboxes goes. After I get the exhaust in and the tune ill start looking into strengthening it. Ill certainly address all the weak areas before I get the cam/supercharger or both! lol

See these guys, Home - Craigs

Best built auto's in AU. When i have the Senators done, that's who will do it. I paid twice as much elsewhere for the job these guys do.

Need some advice. I want to get some things looked at by holden. Just wondering which ones would be covered by warrenty. and by warrenty meaning i dont want to pay 1 cent lol

The satin inserts on the steering wheel have delaminated and are starting to bubble?
The diff has progressively started to whine something stupid....
The drivers seat belt doesnt retract
and the gearbox snaps violently from 1st to second no matter what speed.
