Very nice install! What are the full specs of your system? Are you using the factory head?
Pioneer TSC131PRS - splits & tweeter for front doors
Pioneer TS-A1672S - rear door speakers...i think
Pioneer PRS-D4000F - 4ch amp to run the speakers - 150W x 4
Pioneer PRS-D1000M - Mono block amp to run subs - 1200W
Pioneer TS-SW1241D x 2 - 12" shallow subs - 1400W each
custom sub box with perspex window at rear with SS logo frosted on it with blue neon lights inside
amp wiring kit and and the little bits and pieces
LOC converter for now until a VE processor is released
Rockford Fosgate 10Farad Capacitor
2.5 BULK packs of dynamat later...
Factory head unit for now with LOC until processor released soon
i saw u racin again on monday the 14th whatver the date was still no 12? i saw a few 13.5s i did a 13.7 in my vx (the black ss standard looking one u may have seen me) which is standard without 270rwkw mine probably has about 180rwkw.
yep we were in test mode....clutch sticks to the floor on the VE V8s when given some stick..common fault
myself along with drew(black sv8) were testing some different things for John @ Street Quick Performance and Dan @ Chipmaster
47degree track temps and 18knot head wind werent exactly fast time producing conditions.
the assholes closed the drags early just as it was cooling down! :bang:
ur car auto or manual?
and were u running streets or stock tyres?
its manual and stock tires at full pressure still (whats the difference between street and stock tyres?). how much do you think better temps are worth? yeah they did close it early not many people there tho which was good and probably why they closed early.
better temps should drop the times by about .3s off the ET
no difference between the stock tyres are the ones on the car and "streets" are MT Streets...softer more grip and usually put on smaller rim size...massive side wall for flex and usually run them at 22psi..
How's the info on your clutch mod coming along?
really so i could do a 13.4 given the right temps? or not so apparent in a car without CIA and a tune?
Gday Dean !
I've joined this forum as well ! Good to see a familiar plate
The car pics look great mate !
so far so good....still nutting out the hydralic issue with ve clutchs
no CAI & Tune is killing ur times...u seem to be able to peddle a manual car well...
without the CAI and tune then cooler night should see .1 maybe .2s off the ET....
less politics here so enjoy
some more power added to EXCESSV....all these mods and not even 10months old :whistling
cam and clutch done
224/228 112LSA custom grind by SQP
Chipmaster installed and tuned
also custom SQP clutch with VE Hydralic issue fix
net result....306rwkw/410rwhp with 540Nm of torque :shock:
new diff had the holden bushes taken out and anti axle tramp hit ones put in....
diff sitting at the Chipmaster workshop ready to be installed next week hopefully...
Yeah that's pretty damn impressive! Love your work.
So, how did you resolve the VE clutch issue?
not entirely sure to be honest
its a new clutch, braided lines, modification to return valve, modification/different model slave cylinder, etc etc
thanks for the kind words denizengt & holden8304
these are the brakes i bought today...just waiting to get here from over east now...obviously the big new ones...not the stock ones they are being compared to hahahaha
and these are the rims ordered that i am waiting for too...20x8.5 front and 20x10rear
once they are on i have the G8/CalaisV lip spoiler painted and ready to go on too
HSV 3.7 diff to go in with rest of anti axle tramp kit in the next week or two as well
and thats it for the car for performance mods....got some cosmetic mods planned just to make it different to the other Black VE SSV with black 20" rims running around perth 8)
Nice six potters you got there.
Do you know for certain that they fit behind the new rims? I know a lot of HSV owners have had problems with 9.5 and 10 inch non-standard rear wheels fitting over the brakes due to the offset.
the brakes fit the SS 18" and SSV 19" OEM rims so these new rims are supposed to have same clearance and X factor as them....only putting them on will confirm it
pics of AP Racing brakes on....
i fear they will look small with the 20" rims on :lol:
the rear AP rotors were bigger than the stock fronts!
these pics with the 19" SSV rims really dont do the brakes justice...but damn do the stop...absolutely love them and finally the weak point of the SSV is no longer :yahoo:
and my favourite image from the cam install thanks to jnr :bow:
your car is one of the only 'my ride' threads that i actually read and regularly check for updates.
cheers for the kind words troy
here is a vid of idle etc with the cam...
not that great as there is wind etc but it gives an idea
Very nice Deano! Can't wait to see the new rims on it. Decent brakes work wonders for drivability I reckon and those AP Racing ones are no doubt even better than my Brembo (aka HSV) brakes.
I spoke to Sonny from Marrano's in Sydney today... Looking at just over $4,200 drive in - drive out for cam, valve springs, OTRCAI and tune. Once I have that done, I'll get a small chrome sticker made up that fits neatly under the 307 on the boot lid: "rwkw"
