Sounds like a healthy list of mods, car looks nice..
if i can suggest anything i would start with wheels and suspension, they always make the car unique. From there exhaust, cai are usually pretty expensive and you dont gain too much bang for buck ($/kw). In saying that, not really worth it, but do your research if you are still keen.

FYI 2 Hole mod and SS induction cannot be done together, they are different. Remembering your Alloytec is DOHC, doubleover head cam, so you will need 4 cams, once again, check through the forum for more info on this or call castle hill exhaust for more info.

good luck with the car anyway, keep us posted...

Took it out in the wet today and can i say these are very fun to go sideways in :D (of course in safe areas for myself and public!!!)

Thanks Wattles,
blacks are good colour but its a b***h to keep clean, every three days i found myself washing it :p

Cheers Impulsive, yeah that was my plan of attack either tune/exhaust, or the wheels im thinking CV8Zs or i know its being done but VE SS-Vs i just like the design of the wheels plan and simple,
also would you know if its better to get the cai done first or can i just go ahead with the tune? cheers

also i read some where on these forums that someone was working on just a dual cam mod so lets just say they inlet cams got swapped, though whether or not that project went ahead and is available to the public is another question so i guess its time for some research time :p

and i think i wont worry with the S/C because its never gonna be a 8 but that being said im a fan of charged sixs and theres alot more work and i believe you would appreciate it more. but who knows thats wayy down the track.

thanks.

Nice car mate, but stay away from the SS Inductions crap, it will slow you down.

Wattles : yehh any black and white shades are a nightmare to keep clean but look awesome when washed :D

Got told i had the day off today and so i decided to do the two hole mod today, around 4,000 on wards its a she roarrrs and fells more punchy and the sounds improved which is always good, its worth the $15 and a hour of your time :p
