    slide show :)

    Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket

    Its a Ve Berlina 2010 model justa6 3L SIDI

    Lambo & Matte black Paint

    Full HSV Front Geniune gaurds with flutes & front bar

    20" VE GTS Wheels painted Gloss black rears are 9.5 wide, Lowered with kings springs

    Some Custom work done inside, Upgraded to HSV Door panels/Leather berlina steering wheel, leather gear knob, HSV Pedal kit, some custom dash work wrapped
    & Ipad Install on its way :) fitted into the dash with tocuh screen hvac controller
    have SS gauge pod for the new dash with ipad install and air fuel ratio / oil temp have all the others i need on my ipad system with dash comand and the look alike HSV driver interface skins,Sat nav via ipad app, music, movies, video, email & calls for business while travelling :)

    Engine Mods: LF1 3L SIDI V6

    Mace remote tune

    Mace 12.5mm Manifold spacer

    X force 2 1/4 stainless cat back exhaust

    Custom SIDI header port pipes 2 1/2 stainless with 100 Cell hi flows

    Orssom OTR, Under drive pulley kit, LSD 3.27 Diff (upgrading to 3.45 soon)

    Oil Catch Can, Alloy Power steering container

    Custom front mounted Transmisson Oil cooler (looks like a intercooler)

    Currently makes 144.7RWKW & 308NM of torque on last dyno logs for the tune ramped at 6,000 not 6,900 so thats not the true peak will have new dyno run soon, AFR is too rich and had manifold air leaks also bad knock readings with the 144.7rwkw run hoping for 160rwkw then also doing the Mace quad cam upgrade when i can

    Car currently is going into panel shop for rear bar touch up and fix one door and HSV gaurds join has cracked and we are going to redo it the correct way :)
    Getting my engine bay side walls and inner gaurds finished at the same time also under the bonnet going to be much more presentable at shows now doing it black inside the engine bay it will suit better then the green also green will just get ugly if not maintained 100% for a daily driver i dont want to do that

    Below are some Before & half way photos of the cars transformation

    Stock & Dirty ewwww lol

    Phase 1 getting idea's of what to do to it

    didnt realise you could put that much of the HSV body kit on a berlina, makes sense though.
    Good work, but wont that attract a lot of attention from Police with your "P" on it?

    yeah i'd love to see some direct side shots and front and rear direct shots.

    Looks amazing mate. i'd hate to think how many cops down in vic would pull you over. I get pulled over enough in my calais with quad pipes just to check if its a 6 or an 8 lol
