    Hey Guys

    Just thought id share my weekend stress relief lol

    Shes a 1979 VB commodore Stroked 308, off grind crank, Massive hydraulic roller cam, yella terra heads high flowed, ported polished with larger valves ect. 4sp manual, suede interior, polished cage, drop tank , Technica buckets and custom airbrushed dash, custom paint, shaved engine bay and battery in the boot.

    Shes been built to suit up to 20psi forced induction with 8.1 compression heads. Now just gotta sell my kidney for the next stage. Any takers? haha

    Try using a different image hosting website. Imgur.com is free.

    Just listened again on the headphones.

    Sounds sweet.....esp on the upshift.

    I'll be interested to see how long the trans lasts.
