    Nice car mate great power figures. have you considered using tq magna injectors? I heard alot of people use them in place of the standards.

    New rimsies! :D

    19x 8.5's

    Something a bit different for me... not usually a fan of bling bling, but they look good i reckon. a bit classy

    Love the kit, including the senator front bar. Not real keen on the grill, looks a little too much like a Fairmont lol. Cant see any bonnet mods on those pix.. have you considered a monaro bonnet?

    Awesome ride, love it. I will watch for any future mods with interest..

    Guess i better update this!

    Made the trip up to Heathcote VIC to hit up the drags again. Did way better than i could have ever expected. First run out dipped into the 13's for the first time, i was stoked but it got better!

    Best run of the night was 13.3... almost a second quicker than our last trip up there. Happy as. Couple tweaks and a stickier track and she'll be in the 12's no worries!

    Anyhow... here are the pics of the trip!

    Looks like you've put a bit of time and effort into this car! I'm curious, what made you build a ecotec and stay N/A?

    217rwkw is a very respectable output for a 3.8L ecotec,to put it in perspective at 8psi my 3L supra made 212rwkw, I would have thought it'd have a hard time breathing over 200rwkw n/a,

    You don't have the 60' times from heathcote do you?
