    I picked this up back in '06 with 90k on the odo, a full service history and only one owner who included his new car receipt. After the usual checks, I confirmed this was on the level and snapped it up for $7k. It's been nothing but a pleasure since, still immaculate (aside some random denting the bonnet), holds its fluids, starts first hit and everything (mostly) works. I've never been big on mods other than the 'go-fast' type, so leaving it grandpa/sleeper spec works well at not only keeping unwanted attention away but also at leaving surprised looks.

    The Details:
    Model: VSII Commodore Acclaim
    Build: July 1997
    Colour: Silver Ice II (H069)
    Engine: 3.8L V6 Ecotec
    Gearbox: 4L60E
    Diff: Truetrac, 3.89:1
    Suspension: Factory FE2, IRS
    Brakes: ABS, stock heavy duty ventilated callipers, with DBA HD 4000XS
    Wheels: Holden 15" x 7" Interceptor/Chaser
    Tyres: BF Goodrich T/A Radial, 225/60 front, 235/60 rear
    Exterior: Stock
    Interior: Stock, with Momo Jet 350mm steering wheel, SAAS mechanical boost gauge, JVC DV head unit, 4 x Pioneer TS-A1684S, Pioneer 10" sub, Cadence XA400 and Cadence XA125.
    Kms: 200XXX

    Upgrades:
    Raptor VL side-mount supercharger, clutched with hybrid lightened internals @ 14PSI
    Intercooled (300 x 600 x 76)
    Mace reverse plenum
    Mace CAI
    Mace 25mm plenum insulator
    Walbro GSS342 fuel pump
    Turbosmart FPR800 rising rate reg
    2 x Greddy 32mm BOVs (atmo)
    Custom shift kit with billet servo (2nd only)
    2.5" Cat-back system (Redback)
    100 CPSI high flow cat and custom mandrel Y pipe/collector
    Ace Performance road tune by Joe Ellis

    Power:

    Previous vehicle (redvs2) the kit was on is almost identical and made 240rwkw running a 13.1 sec 1/4, so that's my goal, hopefully with 3.9's I can break into mid/high 12's.

    It's a really nimble car to drive, pokey and loads of fun. Totally streetable as it doesn't start making power til she winds up, which is perfect for sleeper duties. There's no more plans for it, I think this will do, for a touch over $5k it's been brilliant bang for buck.

    Thanks man, I like your ride too, don't see many of the 97 variety Acclaims any more. I can't wait to SC it, I really want Redvs's kit, funds are nearly there, but if I miss it and have to grab a fresh Pro Street I won't complain.

    Much like you, I love this thing and plan to drive it into the ground, but not with 130rwkw. Gotta be 200rwkw minimum :) Will certainly keep this thread posted with developments.

    Yeah fair enough, as you may have seen tired of mine now haha pain because things keep coming up, I get paid monthly so it's difficult. Redvs's kit would be good
    Probably wrecking mine if you want anything let me know it does have a larger TB and memcal to suit and/or a mace CAI as well

    Bugger, sorry to hear it man, sounds like your thread will be a sad read. How many clicks you got?

    I'd probably be interested in your diff most of all.

    I'm making the assumption it's a 3.7, is that right?

    I was waiting, but what the hell! We've entered into a mutually acceptable binding agreement that will result in a Raptor on my girl and some green in Josh's bank :)

    A little while from now, this thread will be a journal of my Raptor V trials, tribulations and joys. The planning has commenced.
