This is my new baby.
VY series 2. only picked her up for 4 days ago. i know shes a bit dirty, it rained this morning, and haven't had a chance to clean her. :hiding:
Almost completely stock, only tri-y pacies, high flows and a mantra 2 1/2 cat back
looking at a tune and OTRCAI. and maybe some more power down the road.

Looks good mate. That's kinda what I'm trying to make my berlina look like.

I'd go for high ratio roller rockers if you're after a bit more grunt. From what i've heard from them, they make the car feel so much different.

How do you like your exhaust? Mind posting a vid?

i was looking into the YT rockers. from a few mates that have them, and the reviews iv read, they dont make much differnace.
think ill pass on em.
ill post a vid soon as i can, gotta get my hands on a vid camera.
the exhaust is really good. u can always hear it, but its not ova powering. when u dump it, u get a nice bark after bout 3 grand:)

Roller rockers don't make an amazing change, but they definitely make a difference that you notice. Depends what ratio roller rockers you go. 1.98:1 seems to be the go. Just remember you need different push rods for VY's :p

Nice calais though... bastard :p

why do they need push rods? or is that because of the high ratio? do they affect fuel economy at all?
