Okay, so the plan is that for this one i do plan on modifying it!.
but not for a couple of months since it has been years since i really drove manual (little bit rusty) so i think working on being smooth through the gears and clutch work should be the first step.
but some mods i am thinking of are

- Exhaust (cuz 5 cylinder engines sound awesome)
- Short shifter
- Clutch Upgrade
- LSD (maybe)
- Bridgestone Potentate RE003 tyres
- T2 rotors with performance brake pads
- Stage 1 Tune
- Rear diffuser
- Raise the wing
- black out the rims (maybe)

that is all i have got so far. but with those it should be more then enough easily. and some are still undecided as of now but just a look into the future and thinking of possibilities. this is quite a lot of money. so it may take some time to eventually do most of this. but will be a fun process to log about

You realise you're on a commodore forum right?

Park the Ford buzzbox and show us the VZ...

Oh, sorry i thought the "Miscellaneous" category was for non - Commodore projects/daily ride threads so i thought it would be better to post here. nothing much for the VZ right now. just enjoying the last few months of her before she goes. though hopefully i might get to do one thing before that happens

2000 Vs Ute
Keep it on here, we don't discriminate. A fair few of the old boys have moved on to other cars.
Nothing wrong with other things.

XR5Ts are awesome.
A mate has one, and for something stock is does go nicely.
Honestly, i see you are still on your P's, get used to the power first and do the stopping stuff before power upgrades.
They go well enough without adding too much to it.

yeah for sure, was going to go for the VE 09 Clubby but someone came in quicker.was such a good deal. was pretty close though. yes these cars are pretty nice for stock and a lot different to the ute. so for a while i am simply going to get used to it at stock levels before modding. i have until late November for my p plates and then i am free from it.
