Picked this up 2 or so years ago for $6,200

Had 159,000 K's on it and drove like a dream and still does.

Stock in everyway when I got it and stayed stock till the start of 2009 when I said to myself "2009 is the year of my car"

Time to turn this thing into a beast :yeah:





Sound System being installed:









Back at home:

















That's it for the sound side of things....for now..hehe.

Engine: Ecotec V6
Mods:

BMC F.1 High Flow Air Filter
SC 6 CAI
Windows Tinted

HSK 165 Splits Front
HCX 690 Rears

Nice dude. Noticable amount of lope, but i reckon once its had a full dyno tune itll smooth a lot of that out.
Sounds like a little toy hehe

UPDATE!

Been a while but yeah I'm still around...

Things slowed down for a bit after my job went under from the crysis >.< But starting to pick up again now. No where near as much work has been done as I would have liked by this time but non the less still enough for an update I guess. :)

Still no full exhaust yet >.< But the car has been tuned the 15L/100km was annoying me now back down to 9L/100 :)

Radiator cracked wide open and dropped its load all over the freeway >.< Car was out of action for awhile till I fixed it. Replaced it with a beasty all alloy radiator that is like twice the size of a standard one. Didn't want to put another standard plastic **** one in there after it just cracked open like that.

Got it off ebay for $350 and I feel it's money well spent! The temp needle hardly even moves from cold while cruising, also noticed a very slight gain in power and fuel economy that was unexpected from a radiator change...

BODY KIT! haha Picked up a genuine Senator kit. Needs to be resprayed though, will be doing this in the near future. I reckon it looks tops though :)

Re trimmed my roof lining with black fake fur haha it feels so nice to touch and looks awesome. Pimped much?

Custom grind Stage 3 Cam shaft
Dual row Timing chain
Oil pressure mod 80 psi
132lb Springs

Roof re trimmed in black fake fur
Senator Body kit (still needs painting)
All alloy dual row High performance Radiator
