NAME: Dave

CARS NAME: -

MODEL: VT SERIES 2 ACCLAIM, originally an ecotec.. now l67 :)

POWER: it had 229hp/170rwkw (on a chassis dyno)with- mace tune, 14psi/3.2inch pulley, YT mini cooler, 1.8.1 RR's, hsv catback, and some funky surging(printout's were all over the joint)..
but since then i've done a bit to it- had injectors properly cleaned, got 2.5' extractors + cat pipes, up to 16psi/2.8inch pulley, extra mace mini cooler(running 2x mini cooler core's) and a bigger water pump, and run's a shitload better, and pull's alot harder now.. :w00t:



MODS:

-l67 engine/auto/loom/exhaust conversion 110,000k's ($2000 ebay)

-yella terra stealth/mini intercooler kit, + PWR heat exchanger ($640 ebay/L67T)

- mace mini intercooler plate($100-l67T) running both the mini coolers

- YT 1.8.1 roller rockers ($160 ebay/L67T)

- twin 2.25' hsv catback exhaust . ($20 ebay :rofl2:)

- 4inch ally intake pipe,pod with enclosure, big home made CAI + stock CAI (all up prob $50-$60ish)

-2.8ich zzp pulley setup ($105 delivered)

-3.08/9 lsd ($200 ebay)

-2.5' stainless extractors ($450 delivered- ebay) ($100 2.5' pipes thru into stock cats)

-vs/zap rails (made myself for $80ish. but it sucked ass)


COST- stuff all


CONTACTS: lol pretty much ebay, bunnings, supercheap.... and mace..
everything's been done/fitted by me, with help from L67T :thumbsup:


OTHER LITTLE MODS/INFO:
- blower + lim home-ported to suit cooler..

- stock T/B

- cooler thermostat

- only running new genuine' l67 leads, ngk standard heat range plugs with standard gap and factory l67 coils

- factory l67 fuel pump (ended up staying on high speed/100% the whole time)

- intake's 80-90mm poly pipe, its wrapped in kevlar with 4inch ally over the top to try n keep abit of the heat out (whileist idling at lights for 80% of my travels) seems to work well, used to get too hot to touch ,now ya can stick ya arm in it after hours of driving/idling and it stays cool as....

-still got the stock sloppy bitch of an auto (bloody hate it)

-



NEXT MODS:

- home port u-bend




FUTURE MODS:
-stock hubcaps,
-shift kit,
-new diff or diff gears,

then see what happens..
pretty much anything i can find cheap, or anything i can do to it that wont need a tune i'll do...


2x mini intercoolers. 1x yella terra stealth and 1x mace mini



some vs ecotec rails cut up n made to fit(cheaper option than YT rails)

VS Stato l67
I love that sleeper look... Bet it would surprise a few people at the lights.

Have you had it on the dyno since putting the extra cooler plate and smaller pulley in? What was your reason for twin small coolers rather than one big plate. Was it just cheaper or is there some other reason?

lol it still surprises me....

na havent had it on dyno again yet, only got it on and back together the other day... not sure how much more kw it'll have(no idea what an extra 1kw or 5kw feels like) but its alot better to drive and pulls alot harder since it went on last time .

and yeah second mini was just a cheaper option.. there's been a bit of talk about it being more efficient than a intermediate plate but no ones try'd it so no one really know's... its made a big difference but..

. i was happy with it before but got surging and a random tick/ping every now and then so thought the extra cooler plate would fix it. and i think it has :D .. still got a vac leak to fix under snout and exhaust leak then will be going back on dyno..

then do front struts and im off to willowbank :)
