A few pics with the new wheels.



I love this photo (Above). Let me know what you think of the new wheels.







Dyno graph showing the before and after going from a PowerTorque Maf tune to PowerTorque Mafless Tune. Great results as you can see.



I went to a test and tune at Willowbank then night that I had the tune redone and netted my first 12 second pass....



Clicky - Here is a Vid of a run at Willowbank after my 12 second pass (excuse the quality it was on my phone). As you can here the clutch slipped a bit on the launch making this run not quite as fast as the 12 second run before it. ( Excuse the Hyper Ute that runs second - thats my brothers slow ute - JSN85 )

Let me know what you think of my pride and joy.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

About the wheels - I liked them in the 19s but I wasn't keen to pay for $4500 for originals and tyres.

I wasn't to sure about them when I put them on for the first time after taking the original wheels off. But they have grown me now and I like them.. I still think the original wheels do look better and if I could offload the new ones I would get another set of original mags again.

The reason that I got the new ones are because the tyres were shot on my original rims and I they had a two of them had gutter rash on them. So i thought I may as well get a new set of rims and change the appearence a bit while I was at it.

As for the performance the LS1's sure do produce power pretty easily.. There is pretty much a set path for the bolt ons which if you go to the right shop (PowerTorque :bow: ) you get the power and Quater mile times, all you need is the $$ to do it.

Thanks guys

Tim
