    VE SS ute 360rwkw N/A, 2016 VF2 SS M6
    Model: MY16 VF SS sedan Series 2 Jan 2016 build
    Colour: Phantom black metallic
    Engine Type: LS3 6.2l V8
    Engine Mods: Stock
    Gearbox: 6spd manual
    Exhaust: Factory bimodal

    Suspension: 4WD atm

    Wheels: stock crap looking SS 18's

    Future mods:
    Get car rego'd
    Ordered black side vents
    wheel upgrade(undecided atm)
    Headers and cats(may keep the factory bimodal yet
    OTR/ Tune
    Lower car a fair bit(ordered)
    Maybe acm down the track(last 3 all cammed)

    Picked up 27/2/16 from geelong and drove back to Adelaide 700km run in(averaged 10L per 100) paid $42990 + onroads so a great deal , My first VF after having 5 Ve's over the years. Nice to drive and surprised at the noise from the bimodal setup. Love the fact it has a 3.7 diff from factory(paid $1250 for the same diff in my ute)

    I like the series 2 SS with the series 1 SSV taillights and its mainly black look(SSV and redline have more chrome)

    Two black cars.... I know what you do on your weekends. Seriously though that is a nice stable you've got.

    its looks great mate. Saw your post on another page about driving back. Its crazy that we make them in this state yet at times pay more than other states. I bought a Cruze SRi-V a few years back from Melbourne and drove it back to Adelaide. Only got one stone chip on here and made it back on one tank of fuel.

    At least you have a story about her now.

    Has made the factory cat back sound nicer and louder with a deeper note so happy camper, no check engine light yet either.

    Next OTR and tune when a few more kms clocked up 1300 atm

    What did you do about the flanges on the factory catback? The picture looks like it's still got the factory flange... I would have thought you'd need to weld a different flange on to mate up the back of the cat...

    Just used the factory flanges and gaskets with some goo/gaskets, haven't really driven it for 2 weeks so have to see if its the sound I want, if so i'll weld on some flanges but i'd probally do a X pipe as well so maybe a HSV Gen f system??

    I'm loving the 2.5" hsv floor section.
    Still contemplating adding high flow cats to the hsv headers, or getting the 4-1ones that HM headers do, as they bolt up to the factory systems.

    Got a bit of a bargain Yesterday, a KPM streetfighter VF 3" system for $750 off gumtree 2 yrs old and had done 20000kms no scraps no rattles from mufflers etc.
    Fitted up great. Its a system for pacies and cats so short for my Rex headers so have to make up 2 300mm spacers to fit up, being a welder won't take long just have to get flanges in stainless as I have some pipe at home from my VY exhaust build years ago, won't have any bimodal available so will see have it goes have same system on my VE ute so should sound sweet as

    Bloke selling had returned his VF to stock to sell and had the family wagon now(kids), funnily Adelaide being so small he lives next to a work mate of all things small world

    Also first check up service done 1400kms so far no issues
