    Well, newly signed up here and time to start a thread for my latest addition.
    Had it for a week now and I love it.
    Completely stock to look at, only done 61,000 km
    Top end work with chains, springs etc. Cam is 227/239 on 114 lobe, Magnuson 1900 Supercharger, built auto with 3000 converter, full exhaust.
    Making about 420KW atw.
    Soon to come will be a rear lip spoiler, suspension and a wheel change (already have the rims in the shed, just need tyres).
    I think that will be all for this one, the good stuff was already done!
    More pics as things eventually happen.

    Nice, looks good , very entertaining to drive, would be very compelling to even keep total stock look and therefore be even more under the radar , both for unwanted attention but also unsuspecting victims . That wine of a supercharged engine is soo addictive , together with the low down grunt of valley/ positive displacement type superchargers=happy days

    It is very addictive, I agree!
    The stock look was considered but the wheels just don't do it for me.
    Plus the poor Conti 245's have no chance.
    Will be putting the HSV SV Forged rims on once I get the coin for some Michelin Pilot Supersports.
    Not going crazy low, easily adjusted with the coilovers.

    Well, it is Saturday!! I love these lip spoilers, once the coilovers are fitted and the wheels are on I will fit this as the final (for now) change.:D

    Yeah do love the lip spoiler more than the other .
    Yeah need to be careful and selective = very easy to to give a big bootfull and get carried away. Sometimes think so much better and in the long run cheaper ( especially if your busted) to get your fix with a few track days. That way you can really let fly , still within reason as you need it to get around .
    Melbourne = Phillip island, would be so much fun.

    Well, new wheels and tyres are on, I went with the Michelin PS 4's.
    I pick up the bargain find Pedders coilovers tomorrow.
    Being fitted on Monday and replacing the exhaust (keeping the existing headers and cats) with Di Filippo 3".
    When it gets home I will replace the spoiler and call it done!
    Hurry up Monday.

    Monday!
    I haven't taken a pic with the wheels yet because it is at the stock height still.

    Ok, exhaust and coilovers all done yesterday and I am so much happier with it!
    Sits perfectly for me now, much better. Nice firm ride without being too harsh.
    Di Filippo 3" Stainless, sounds brilliant.
    Quick pic when I got it home. 20180226_173043.jpg
