'79 VB SL/E 253, VY SS II
Model: 04 VY CALAIS II HBD
Engine: L67
Trans: 4L60E
Diff: 3.7:1 LSD
Colour: Martini Grey
Interior: Black leather, Sunroof
Kms: 123000

Picked it up a couple of months ago, so far I have done the diff, shift kitted the trans, replaced lim gaskets, bypassed boost control solenoid, tinted the windows and dropped it on ultra low King Springs with Monroe GT shocks. Got a decent tax return so I decided to spend a few dollars on it. Apart from the porting and dyno tuning I'll be doing all the work myself.
Parts on order and soon to be fitted:
Mace 14 psi kit
Mace a2a intercooler kit
Mace 70mm tb
Ported intake with 6.35mm insulator
82* thermostat
Mace 1.9:1 roller rockers
105lb valve springs
Comp valve locks
Comp cam to suit
Double row timing chain
4 layer cometic head gaskets
Ported/polished heads
X force headers and 2.5 duel exhaust system
Dyno tune

I've gone with a2a just because it's simple to set up, no need for pumps etc, less coolant leaks to worry about, and I'm only trying to make a quick and tidy daily out of it, not looking to make it a drag beast

Ahk I thought the w2A was easier as it doesn't need a tune straight away

For a daily car i would go with the A2A setup, W2A i personally think is better for drag racing applications because once the water heats up it takes a little while to cool down again witch is why at the drags they put dry ice etc in the reservoirs.
When money permits il be fitting a A2A with a nice dyno tune to suit.

My point exactly, and speaking of money, my bank acc didn't appreciate all the gear I've ordered, trying to hide this from the missus is the hardest part of this build haha.

I don't have a thread for my car on here because its pretty much stock at the moment iv only had it for a month. I love the color of your car its like a darker version of mine. Im lucky my partner doesn't worry to much about me spending money on my car but unfortunately work has been slow an as such money is lacking. :(
