    Hi All,

    I thought it was about time i posted some pics of the SSV. Here's the details:

    Name: Brett
    Car: Holden Commodore VE SSV 2007
    Colour: Heron White
    Body: Sedan
    Engine: 6ltr L98
    Power: Started at 270kw. Not much more yet
    Exhaust: 2.5" mild steel Xforce
    Gearbox: 6 speed manual
    Wheels: Standard SSV
    Interior: Standard with the usual legal tint
    Induction: Stock
    Suspension: Stock

    As with most others, mods will come as the funds allow. Plans will be (in a rough kind of order) VCM OTR, Pacey 1 7/8 4 into 1's, 100cpi cats, tune, lowered with strut brace, black 20's, possibly a Senator style boot lip spoiler, cam, clutch. I could babble on about blowers and turbo's etc. but i'll just stick to the basics for now.

    The day I picked it up (on my birthday no less!):

    New zorst:

    De-badged (i like it this way, with just the Holden badge):

    And last but not least, after a shine at my mates detailing shop:

    Feel free to leave some feedback and suggestions. I pray to sweet Jeebus that the pics work!


    Cheers,
    Brett

    congrats mate! ive got an ssv with vcm otr, 1 7/8" pacies, dual 3" xforce catback and i love the combo.. also with lowering if your are chasing handling then id suggest get some coilovers and a set of whiteline swaybars front and rear.. this really transforms these cars.

    Cheers fellas. The hard part is working out what to do first. I'd like an otr and a tune but for the same cost I could get a reasonable suspension set up. Wouldn't mind a stance like yours Potta, back when you had the speedys!

    thanks bud. and thats without any polish! i actually like it de-badged at the back but the sides i like. pretty keen to get some lowness happening... everytime i look at the pics it makes me want to go low as! SSSL rear amd SSL front most probably though. maybe coilovers if the budget allows

    Never ceases to amaze me how good a clean White SS looks, there is just something about the color that sits well with the VE SS.

    Nice mate, well done.

    Cheers.

    Thanks mate. I actually wasn't looking for white, but it grew on me. Gotta give it a coat of polish when I get some time

    Thanks mate. Yours is a ripper too! Great blend of black and white. I've become a big fan of white HSV's... Fingers crossed it'll be what i get when its time to upgrade

    Well what do you know... Just got a call from the missus asking me to order the OTR myself as she doesnt want to get the wrong one. Got straight on the phone to VCM and ordered the MAF OTR bundle pack for $675 which includes the infill and facia panels. Should get delivered tomorrow. I know what I'll be doing this Sunday! I'll try and get some pics during the installation and give a bit of feedback on how it goes.

    Installed the VCM OTR that I got for fathers day this morning. Great sound and I can feel a bit more power, and that's with an untuned motor. 2nd gear from 2500 rpm is the sweet spot to punch it. Definitely wants to get up and go a lot quicker than before, power is a lot more instant. I'll try and put some pics up tomorrow with a short summary of how the installation went. But for now, it's back to a few more beers.

    Happy fathers day to all you rev heads out there!

    Cheers :beer chug:
