So after selling my VZ SSZ much quicker and alot less painfully than expected I was stuck with a heap of cash and no car... Only a few days later this 1 family owner wagon popped up and I grabbed it. Came bog stock, with the exception of some ugly mags that I got rid of straight away and a Walky cat back. Been pretty happy with it so far, no real complaints, it's great fun to drive.

Model: 2008 VE SS Sportwagon
Colour: Blackkkk
Engine Type: 6.0L L98 V8
Engine Mods: VCM OTR, MAFless tune at WA Performance
Power: 270rwkw
Exhaust: Hurricane 1 7/8 extractors, Manta 2.5" cats, Manta 2.5" cat back
Gearbox: 6 Speed Manual
Brakes: Stock
Suspension: Stock
Exterior: Darkest legal tint
Interior: Red cloth seats, type S 6.5" coaxles in doors

Future Mods: Cam, clutch, coil overs, maybe D1r's, maybe Magnuson 1900.







Was all fun n games till I picked up this and had to install it:





Then after that it was off to WA Performance for a VCM OTR and mafless tune. 306hp was with the full exhaust already fitted, 364hp was with the OTR and mafless tune. Fun times...

Currently going through some insurance policy fun...

After the mods I thought I should try get them on my policy, or a new policy...

Shannons seems to think it's only worth $23k absolute maximum, with a huge premium to go with it. Not sure where they get these ideas, he assured me it was top end market value? I said mate maybe go check carsales in Western Australia and see how many manual wagon's you find sub $30k...

Great lookin rig mate and some good power figures. They feel like a totally different beast once you add on those extra goodies.

To be honest it doesn't 'feel' a heap differtent to me? I know it had alot more power purely by how much more wheel spin I'm getting, but yeah normal mid range kind of driving it doesn't feel a heap different. Guess that always happens when you get use to power though.
