    Well here is my new toy. Had it for a few weeks now and the mods have started already!
    Bought it ex GMH with only 23000 on the clock, stock as a rock.
    Mods so far:

    Tinted windows
    Lowered with pedders sports ryder
    Ditched the 17" stockies and went the conservative route with some brand new ssv 19"s on michelin boots.
    Custom made KPM catback stainless steel exhaust

    Future mods:

    Pacemaker 4 in 1's headers with 1 3/4 primaries
    Hi flow cats
    Duspeed otr
    Oztrack efilive Mafless tune
    Mabye change the diff ratio from the 2.92 to 3.45's, see what happens there.
    Haven't got alot of pics but here are some.

    Yeah it sounds pretty good. I'll get a drive by up, camera doesn't seem to like the idle start, doesn't come out too well.

    Ok, hope this works!
    Quality isn't that great, i'll do another one when the full system is on. This is my KPM 2.5" catback only.

    Well ordered the rest of my exhaust today. Headers and cats will be going on in about a weeks time. Have also spoken to my tuner and it will be happening also in a week or two. :)
    Can't wait, the auto is shitting me a bit so hoping the tune will sort it out.

    lol, you'd think that but no not really missing the clutch too much, the auto flares up quite a bit so hopefully the tune will take it out of it. I guess we'll soon find out.
    On a side note, decided to buy my own tuning module. This will save sending it back after the tune is uploaded. Up to 8 licenses can be stored on the unit at one time, plus if i want to tweak with the tune a bit down the track i already have the unit to upload the tune once it's emailed through, all in my own driveway which makes it soooo much easier :)

    Woohoo!
    My otr arrived from Duspeed yesterday. Just waiting for the flashscan unit now for the tune. Headers and cats on monday so this time next week should be all done hopefully!
    Intake below, infill panel above the otr finishes off the engine bay nicely, well worth the extra $55 imo.
