Vh commodore , vs statesman
Hi I'm new to club. I bought myself a vh to build for drags cruising etc. unfortunately started stripping car for paint. We found large amount of rust around rear window. Eaten frame of window completely rust in all inside of doors boot bonnet etc. only paid 700 for car came with newly built mild 308 etc. so we decided car was not good enough to rebuild as time is not in our favour. So on Thursday I'm picking up this vh it's perfect body no rust and registered. Build can begin. Engine build (355) has been organised and building it for 450 plus hp and body will get respray in metallic white and all the usual tidy ups and component swaps as its a six at moment interior wise it's perfect. We will post pics and details as we go over next few months

Still two months away but as far as exhaust go I don't know if I should go twin 21/2 dumped at diff or 3 inch all they way, car wont see alot of street driving at all just ocasional sneek out on a cruise ,and as far as interior goes it will stay the same with few gauges and roll cage with two harnesses in front , does anyone in Perth know where I can get a four point cage done , not planning on going much kwicker than 11 sec so mainly just for show

twin 3inch with a H pipe as close to the collectors as possible for a healthy 355...usually fit the H just after the trans pan. have a couple flange plate welded in also for ease of trans servicing and removal

if u go vn heads use the pacemaker 1'3/4 primary extractors.

don't go the conventional X pipe as they sound like a hectic fart in a coke can.
If you do go an X pipe style have a piece of 5'inch pipe squashed to accommodate the twin 3' pipes.

how strong and ridgid does it feel... mate of mine had a carbon fiber bonnet on his skyline and it would get a bad flutter at high speed because it was so light and flexible do you think this would do the same ....ya got me thinking it might look good on my car
