    Hsv Vy senator s2 & Vt s2 5.7 calais
    Name: Ben (aka senator).

    Car: Vt series 2 Calais.

    Engine: LS1 V8.

    Exhaust: 2 1/2 cat back for now done 6/4/13.

    Suspension: Kyb shocks front & back, king springs KHRL-47L in front & king springs SL in rear & nolathane bushes.

    Brakes std with dba gold rotors and street and track pads from bendix range.

    Wheels i have no idea i cheaped out hard found on gumtree super cheap new tyres done 6/4/13 (someone pls tell me what they are).

    Power: untested slow.

    diff: Std 3.08 i think.

    had this car for a month got bored like always, went to sell to buy a boat misses stopped me as she liked it. I was so goddam sick of people msg me of ebay at like 1 in the morning if i would swap for an exec ??? or some real low ball offer so im doing a budget build

    mods to come are, ASR dash lights.
    custom bluetooth button using orig vt button modified (in the process).
    asr input output because i cant stand aftermarket stereo's they all look out of place so ill be doing genuine hsv navigation & interface a reverse camera dvd player to this.

    some decent extractors cat's typically stuff prob no cam but otr and tune possibly diff who knows & some leather.

    So yeah this pretty much it i'll throw a few photos up of before and after hope you all like it as this and senator arnt going anyway
