Thought I might as well chuck this up...

I bought it already lowered and tinted which were both things I was going to do anyway. It came with GTS copies which the rears had been painted silver to match the car and the fronts had been machined to fit earlier model Commodores so couldn't be balanced properly, so I bought genuine ones. I also put a KPM cat-back 2.5" system on it.

Mods to come:
- Pacemaker 1 3/4" 4-to-1's waiting to be fitted
- Ballistic 3" to 2.5" cats waiting to be fitted
- 3.45 diff... Trying to find one before Saturday as car was booked into just have 2.92 LSD put in.
- Duspeed or KPM OTR... Yet to decide
- A very mild cam, still researching
- MAFless tune once it's all being fitted

Thanks guys.

Once the diff is in I'll go have a chat to Chev and get the cam, OTR, extractors and cats all done at once... Hopefully I stop the mods after that as it is costing a fortune! :)

Here are a couple of exhaust videos that I posted in the exhaust thread. I need to make another idle one 6,000km on and a take off and drive-by.

KPM 2.5" cat-back system just installed

KPM 2.5" cat-back system after 1,000km
