1994 VR S2 Acclaim
Hey guys,

This is a video I took of my VR S-II Acclaim (just converted to BW T5) in around December / January. This is what it's got done to it (which I don't think is that much):

*Link*: YouTube - P2070016.AVI

* a cheap ($350) set of aftermarket extractors.
* a K&N panel filter.
* the belmouth removed.
* sports leads & plugs (no biggy there).
* a full 2.5in Lukey sports exhaust (only 1 muffler in the system, not the standard of 2) - with tip.

Please note: This motor was purchased from a local wrecker, and only lasted a month (as it dropped a cam bearing). The motor was replaced, and I have had the bottom end bearings (big-ends & journals), and the main seals replaced - the original bearings were discarded for a higher quality / performance bearing (though the brand isn't known). The current motor sounds and goes MUCH better (at least in my oppinion it sounds better) - and I'm getting anywhere from 8km/L (towing 1.5 ton at 100-105km/h) to 15km/L from the car!!!

Car looks like a bit of a bogan mobile with those tail lights and that boot. Doing the manual conversion was a good effort though.

Hahaha - I kinda want to have the car resprayed, but, money is the issue there... (as well as a few electrical problems to have ironed out). The boot came of a black VS SS - as the wreckers didn't have any matching. But, as previously mentioned - I do want to have the whole car resprayed at some point. =)

Really it's just the lights. Black boot - not that bad really, the lights just look horrible though.
