So here are some pics of the my Series II L67 Calais as it is currently. I've just (literally an hour or so ago) got a 10PSI pulley and 1.9 rockers, which will be fitted tonight. So should have a bit more go for the show ;) Other stuff that isn't shown here is red LED dash lights (THANKS LAKERZ!!!) and LED courtesy lights under the door handles. Also moulded A and sail panels, for the speakers.

External Glamour shot - 20 inch HR Racing wheels, Monaro HID's, and chrome grille.



Audison Bit 1 processor in the glovebox, which runs three way active front stage (tweets/mids/woofers) and a single 12 inch in the boot.



Controller for Bit 1, moulded into the cupholders.



My boot - pretty plain, but functional. And two of the best amps I've ever owned - a coupla Genesys 5 Channel Audiophile amps :)

Put in the new rockers last night - car definitely has a bit more go! Didn't have an extra 30mm shifter for the pulley removal tool, so will get one tonight and get the 10PSI pulley on :D

The processor changes the stock head unit output from 4 channel speaker out, to up to 8 channel RCA out. Also does full eq, time alignment, level and crossover adjustment for each channel. It controls that :)

Ok another update! Got my Mace pulley on last night. Easy as install, even doing it without help. And the car definitely gets up there quicker now, with more whine under power. SO happy with it!!!!

Yeah man it was, compared to fiberglassing pods for speakers hehe. I want to re-do the paint on it because its a bit sketchy, but was simple as to do the actual shape.

I like this. How do the supercharged cars go? I looked at a supercharged Caprice, but I thought it looked too big for the engine size, so went LS1. But in a smaller sized car like yours, it would probably have a bit more go :)

They don't feel a hole lot faster than the n/a, but they have a lot better off the line torque and power. Brilliant for towing as well. Looks good mate, and good to here good feedback on the rockers, I'm debating a set myself for the wagon.

Well, I just finished the CAI, chip and throttle body. The car now has some serious anger management issues Hahahahahahaha. Drives (relatively) normal at low speed, but howls like a banshee when you put the boot into it. And launches like crazy. I'll post the whine when I can record it and not upset the neighbours hehehe.

Looks pretty quick with those added mods.. Is it a manual? R U Holding it in second gear as revs looks high in the video? Good one..Like your red dash lights..

Nah man its Auto. In that video, I went slowwwlllly over some train tracks, then put the foot down. And cheers - I HATE green dash lights (after owning a couple of Euro cars with orange/red lighting) so got the stock lights swapped for red LED's.

Ok, so update. Ever since I saw the Rolls Royce Wraith, I wanted fibre optic stars in my roof. So finally did it! The colours don't show up well on video, they're much more colourful in real life.
