VR Caprice Manual

Hey everyone,

I just registered on this forum, looks great and thought i'd throw a few pics of my ride up for you to have a geez at.

I am a Drum & Bass producer/dj in Perth but thought it was well and truly time to start spending some funds on the Caprice instead of the studio, I bought the car in august last year.
Current mods are as follows:


It is a VR CAPRICE, 151 000 kms

Engine Mods: Cold Air, Pacemaker headers into single 3 inch system

Gearbox: Just converted to manual last week, rebuilt & toughened T5 with billet short shifter and heavy duty race clutch

Paint: Resprayed a bluey/purple over a lighter blue 2 tone.

Suspension:super Low springs with adjustable shocks, new suspension components throughout inc heavy duty sway bar neolephane bushes throughout.

Brakes: Standard callipers with DBA Front slotted rotors (going to put 4 spots on in the next month or so)

Wheelz: 18 inch ANZ Revolutions

Interior: Caprice interior with custom shifter surround and 2 Autometer gauges installed into cavity under stereo deck with custom surround

Stereo: Standard at the moment (all my sound equip funds went into my studio!)

Future Mods: I am currently building a 355 on a stand for the Caprice, I really dont have a completion date as I am expecting a bub due in December, so cant bully the wallet too much. I want to take my time with the build and am even contemplating a blower or turbo.





Will post some pics of interior soon
