Hey all, was wondering what would be the cheapest but at the same time most efficient performance enhancers for a VN 3.8? already got basics. i.e exhaust, pod filter. CAI is next step along with extractors but wanting to know some low cost performance modifications that wont attract too much police attention.

thankyou
Adam

vp 3.8 with gas new project vn s1 guted strip only
foam tune is a must in fact i would have gone there first especially at the price and take the excess weight out and diff gears if you dont do huge amounts of highway driving get a shorter belt and dont attach your ac if possible remove the ac composer and radiator attached to it its all dead weight and load on the engine running or not and thats coming from some one thats raced strip only vps before and done it befor

Step 1: Steal shopping trolley.
Step 2: Remove engine, find a long piece of wood and 2 bits of rope.
Step 3: Strap engine to front of trolley, weld a pipe from the wheels straight to the flywheel, gears are for jerks.
Step 4: Connect a piece of rope to each front trolley wheels and make the wood a handle. This is your steering, get familiar to it.
Step 5: Your power to weight ratio has increased to the point where you are the baddest thing on the street. Assume your right as king of the road and take what you please.

Here are my schematics:

HAHA if that was only true and able to do without the cops booking ya
PLEASE its totally road legal. The rim sizes are stock with plenty of tread on the wheels, the wooden steering block is new and free from termites, the rope is unmodified and if they start going on about its ride height i will make them measure it cause its stock. Although i hope they dont see the line locker ive installed so i can light up those 3'' mags at any time!

Other than that mate the cops have got nothin on me.

damn right!

Now prices start at $3.10 (for an ice coffee) and about $40 for the labour required for me to take the motor out of my bro's VN (while he sleeps) and wack it into a trolley. You have to supply the wood and rope, they dont let me into Bunnings anymore.

you forgot something ( if tight cornering is needed i take no responsibility for rope burn optional gloves will be offered for just a little more ( cheep garden gloves from bunnings) but if you wish not to take the offer then in no way expect us not to laugh at you wanting a return)
:yeah::yeah:
