VZ Monaro CV8
Hey Guys,

decided to upgrade from the calais to a vz monaro, all i can say is... man it was worth it :w00t:

its a 04 Build Odyssey Cv8.
Pretty much a standard Auto with Bluetooth and 53thou on the clock

its has a twin 3 inch stainless system with stainless extractors and big stainless cats
and a maf tune with adjustments to the shift points and etc to the transmission
thats left me with 315rwhp and a tough sounding monaro

Best car ive had in my short driving experience :yeah:
all i can say is i spend to much money on my cars!

Car has run a 13.7 at 102mph on its first time out at WSID - not bad for having a boot full of work equipment, spare, full tank of petrol, standard tyre pressure, not launching it off the line and only little burnouts to conserve my street treadi

man i wish i had your kind of money at that age. Very nice toys there.

I would get a lukey cat back and maybe a CAI for your monaro. Would make her sound even nicer.

20g + calais that was, still a great price


insurance yeah, was a bit harder than the calais and that was a v8 too, insurance broker has got me sorted though.

the main problem is everyone thinks i want to race them cause im a p plater in a monaro, like these guys are in corollas/civics with canons, like seriously why bother...

Yep, I cop this in my VY too, I'm not a P-Plater, but I don't look as old as I actualy am (I'm 21). Riceboys always seem to be up for a race.

I've learnt to live with it, and I just sit there, don't even turn my head to acknowledge them. I sit there at the lights, smile, and just take off normally. No racing or speeding. 9 times out of 10, they'll be in my rear view eating my dust anyway.
