    Hey all, just got my first V8 - also my first Holden so thought i would join up.
    Not sure if this is the right place for my first post but well better then nothing.

    So yea i got it about 3-4 months ago, posting my pic of it from befor i did any work to it (as i havent taken a pic of it since then :p, will do so tomorrow)

    So yea its a 2002 VU 6sp manual, 5.7L LSI. Its got leather trim and seats (black and red)

    Mods:
    Pace-Maker headers
    Dual 2.5" exhaust with high flow cats
    lowered - front and back
    Performance spark plugs/Eagle ignition leads
    SS inductions growler CAI
    and new tail lights

    Future mods:
    well at the moment the main things i want to get done are:
    New clutch (heavy duty, the one in there is worn, working but worn)
    Maf-les tune
    4.11 dif
    some nice 20's

    Any feed back or information about other mods or stuff to do would be nice, this is my 4th car but first car that i have ever done anything to and yea just enjoying it at the moment!

    Very clean looking ute mate. Are the badges Gold or is it just my eyes playing tricks on me?

    Hahaha yea, sorry forgot to mention that. Yes the badges are gold, idk some people love them some people hate them - me i love them. Like all you see is black and chrome wanted it to be a bit different.
    And yea i love the tail lights as well dzach ;). They were chrome when i bought them but i bought some of that tail light tint paint, i haven't had any problems with them as i haven't painted the reflectors only the outside stuff.
    GOT some new pics (washed it last night first heheh)

    Awesome ride man, i love VU-VZ utes, especially black SS ones :). I think you should lower the back a bit more to get her sitting level :)

    Good idea with the tail lights too, that looks really good

    Need to take some pics during the day light but i went and put a bonnet scoop on it - reason, mostly cuss i was bored but also cuss Holden gave me this shits with the price of there manaro bonnets and i didnt feel like getting an ilegal fiberglass bonnet.
    Its a funny thing, i like it but its split my friends 50/50 so will be interesting to see what people say.

    Well its had a fair bit more work done to it now.
    Got my 4.11 diff, kicker splits, 12" sub, 20" wheels, different tail-lights, monaro style black head lights, (just bought a new bonet, liked my bonet scoop but....i like the smooth look more)
    Got a heavy dutty cluch kit put in, however i still find if i have reved the car hard that my rev's dont drop somtimes....anyone have any ideas to what i need to do as it can be rather anoying!!


    Eddit: will put a pick of my car with the bonet scoop on and will put some more picks on over the weeked with new bonet after i give her a clean!

    Nice ride! I got myself the same sweet ride. Just had a rip shifter installed, ram jet filter and now contemplating whether to go maf-les or not??

    Ahhhh decisions!! A girls life is sooo complex ;-)
