VS S V6 manual ute
***turbo build progress, see below***

Hey guys

Here are some pics of my 2000 VS S V6 manual ute that I bought stock about a year ago.

Exterior mods:
• Look at the freaken pics!

Driveline mods:
• Supercharged V6 cold air induction
• 120 pound valve springs
• Upgraded collets, retainers, pushrods
• Yella Terra 1.9:1 roller rockers
• Wildcat extractors, hi-flow cat, Lukey 2.5” mandrel bent cat-back exhaust
• 3.45 diff gears

I only recently got all of the driveline mods done (as I only recently changed insurer). The only driving that I have done since then is a 1500km trip from Tannum Sands to Mt Isa and a bit of driving around Mt Isa.

I can safely say that it accelerates from 100-200km/h quicker than a small car accelerates from 0-100km/h. Also, I was lucky enough to drag a VS V6 manual ute with exhaust and flogged it. Needless to say, I'm very happy with how it performs.

What do you guys think?
