Hi guys

long time reader on the forum

Showing off my car:
2003 VY SS 6 Speed manual LS1
bought with 92,000 km

After getting bored of just the basic exhaust mods etc, decided to go that little bit further
me and a mate decided on a 383 stroker after seeing so many cars going forced induction.

purchased another block, dropped it off and it started, machining and parts started coming.


The car now has the motor installed and making 448hp and 449ftlb from the get go.

mods are:

383 stroker LS1
Scat crank and rods
JP pistons
LS2 243 heads, mild port.
Lunati cam and valvetrain
fast 102 manifold and throttle body
60lb injectors
fast fuel rails
pacemaker 1 3/4' extractors
duspeed OTR
B&M Short throw shifter

HSV Harrop brakes front and rear

lowered suspension with koni shocks
whiteline swaybars front and rear

battery in the boot
sound system mods etc


Future plans:
new exhaust and retune next week
set of wheels
coilovers
and some suttle body mods


but really i pretty much mod as i go

below are just some photos

sorry for shitty iphone pics and such a shitty build thread.
did it quite quickly

Awesome car mate,
Did you have to change the water pump so the 102 throttle could clear?

Where'd u get yr brakes from mate?
I've been looking for an upgrade coz the 20s makes my brakes look tiny. So far the only upgrade kits I can find are over $3200
