    the CAI from chipmaster is specific for the VE. its a pod style setup

    i'm waiting to see if the OTRCAI that has recently been developed by someone over east is gonna prove to be as good as they were for the VT-VZ range and might update then.

    go see Dan @ Chipmaster and he will sort you out for a tune mate.
    he is honest and no bull**** so have a chat with him and tell him what you want.
    he has some neat OTRCAI for VT-VZ and can has different tuning options with maf, mafless, mail order tune, custom tune, etc

    Dean :D

    thanks for the comments guys.
    spoilerless is something that some ppl love where other ppl hate.
    its something different and the main reason why its off is coz the SSV spoiler from factory on my car came really rough feel and swirls bad so got it off to clay bar it and all and thought i would go without for a week or two.
    still havent clay barred it as i am a little lazy right now...lol...going on jetski is more fun than clay barring a spoiler :yeah:

    the stud patter for the VE is the same as previous commodores.
    except in the VE the studs are 14mm where previous models are 12mm...thats about it.
    most rodney jane mags have stud holes 14mm anyway for the commodores so they suit the VE...thats what i was told by mate who is a franchise owner of one

    thanks for the comments NickVR and Dale

    might go down and watch this wednesday.
    the first couple of weeks will be packed and when mystery mondays starts it will be 2 nights of drags a week so it should ease the amount of ppl there and mean more runs in.

    are you running the car on the night or just spectating?

    would love to tuck some rim in the gaurds but coz of the long pacemaker extractors the high flow cats hang pretty low as there is no space to tuck them under and any lower than currently it will struggle over speed bumps in city carparks for work everyday.

    the car is used everyday for work and used on the track, strip, sprint days, etc so for me its perfect for ride height, handling, etc....its not a show pony although when it does go into shows later on i can just wind the coilovers down and have it slammed!

    nice work dude....going with giggle gas hey?

    went down to the plex to watch a mate run...he did a 10.8 on the first run and packed up....now he has to cage it to come back.
    next wednesday i am hoping to go down again this time with my helmet and give it a stab.
    guys with same combo as me with street tyres are running mid to high 12s...
    i know i wont get that being the first time i have ever dragged but should be in the 13s without any problems...
