View Full Version : Brightline Racing Fabrications - VL Performance Airboxs & Exhaust Heat Sheilds

24-03-09, 18:23

For any Enquiries or Question, feel free to call me (Phone: 0401 187 414)

-Product 1

Stainless Steel Airbox that has been designed to keep engine temperatures and dust away from your engines Pod filter, resulting in lower engine temperatures and longer time between Pod Filter cleans. A Standard Airbox normally sell for $250, but for everyone on we are advertising them for $210.

Our Airbox's are the Best Quality, Value, and Workmanship on the market, (also with the most options to suit each individual application). With our contoured baseplate that meets up to factory sheetmetal, fully welded 304 stainless steel construction, option of removable lid and cold air induction pipe. We challenge you to compare our airbox design to any other on the market and you will see/understand why we are currently the best. Read Bellow for more infomation

Note: You have a choice of 3-inch or 4-inch Pod filter mouth.

Our Airbox has been designed to simply bolt into the factory mounting points of the standard airbox, and Airflow Meter. (No Modifications required to vehicle)

Airbox has been designed to encorporate drag use, once passenger side headlight has been removed, the Airbox is designed to catch cold air around your air filter, resulting in more performance from lower intake temperatures and higher cold airflow.

Add a lid to your airbox to keep 'unwanted' inspecting eyes off your pod filter, and add an additional heat and dust barrier off your air filter

A Cold Air Intake is an extra option for your Airbox (added $60) that will increase the performance of your VL by the direct flow of cold air to your airfilter, also resulting in cooler engine temperatures. (Intake Diameters can be either 3inch or 4inch)
Note: A Hole must be cut through metal work, but has been designed in a specific way that once original Airbox is refitted to vehicle the hole cannot be seen.

To sum that up to make it simple:

-Standard VL Stainless Steel Airbox $210 (Outside Walls in a Brushed Stainless Steel Finish)
-Polished Outside walls of airbox (as pictured) = $60
-Removable Lid with allen key bolts = $60
-Cold Air Intake Pipe = $60

Note: for the guys and girls not running a airflow meter, we can fabricate 3 or 4 inch pipe instead of the airflow meter mount for no extra cost.

We are Happy to post Australia wide, we'll charge postage costs at a case by case basis to prevent overcharging people, or undercharging ourselves.

The Airbox fitted up

-Product 2
The item is a Stainless Steel Exhaust heat sheild designed to suit the standard VL turbo exhaust manifold.

The exhaust heat sheild has been designed to replace the ugly/ordinary looking original one, in my experience most of the original ones have been lost, or are cracking and falling apart.

The heat sheilds are $259 and include nuts, bolts, and washers required for mounting. (DIRECT BOLT ON FITMENT)

Once again we are happy to post Australia wide at a case by case basis so no one is over-charged and we are not undercharged.

Ok cool. The airbox would look pretty sweet with a lid on it. I will let you know when I can get one and try it out.

26-03-09, 19:56

Oh, sorry, BRIGHTLINE...

cheers Luke

14-04-09, 21:48

also, do u supply the whole lid or just the top trim if it is a trim?

and is there a pickup option, and if so where from?

14-04-09, 21:53
For the first month we will be throwing in a stainless steel fuse box trim with every purchase, obviously it doesnt do anything other than bling up your engine bay (For more pics of our items visit

Just thought I would post up these pics of the sexy box man. Let me know if you want me to post up more. All I did was cut the intake off to fit the pipe properly and welded the pipe to the box directly. Nice work with the box mate.

29-05-09, 22:21
yes and no, seems alright when dosing and when it doses loud, you dont tell as much but it seems like when you are dosing its echoing a bit more, sounds almost like darth vader or something :P or something that would be on star wars :P

01-03-10, 22:43
hey dude u made any strut tower covers??

04-03-10, 06:38
Hey Jeremy

As far as i know that air breather on the catch can has to return back to the intake manifold where the original piping was connected to from the rocker cover to the manifold.

As i ran a breather and my car idled really low when it was warmed up.

04-03-10, 10:13
this stuff looks really good so how much should i bring to the vlturbo nations als with me i recon i will want 1 of evrything lol

23-03-10, 17:53
Hjey dude what can I use to polish my shield when I install it cause I got finger prints on it?.

How much to have the vt to vl seat things too lol?.

23-03-10, 18:21
I can vouch for the welding job of my seats. They do not budge, shake or rattle one bit. Very happy with the work done

Here are some better pictures of it. _n.jpg

27-04-10, 14:17
Will those airboxes work with the stock style bend off the turbo intake and how much are they again?.

27-04-10, 14:24
im pretty sure they dont have a pipe to the standard setup and that airbox yet but they will.
but when they are ready ill be getting one. how much will the radiator covers be and will they come polished??

28-04-10, 09:18
are you still planning on making a pipe that replaces the standard intake pipe because i dont have the standard pipe and have my airflow meter in a different spot??

86 gmh
28-04-10, 13:00
hey mate just wondering if you have ever made up a cover that goes over the air inlet for the a/c / fan . Theres normally just a black plastic cover that sits over it.Something done in stainless would be pretty sexy.

28-04-10, 19:14

28-04-10, 21:57
Do u make the rad covers for a vr ss. Also after a catch can to suit a vr ss to go in the position where the factory airbox goes. Need one to cover the 100mm hole I cut under it since I now gone to a single plane manifold.

28-04-10, 22:03

07-05-10, 22:11
Hey Jeremy

Sorry I haven’t contacted you sooner but as you could probably imagine I have had a lot of loose ends to tie up and some long awaited family wanting a small piece of my time.

But Id just like to take this time to say a HUGE thanks for your support with the Inaugural 2010 VL TURBO NATIONALS. Your prizes and efforts were greatly appreciated by spectators and the winning contestants alike.

Once again without your help and your out on a limb attitude to support the new event, along with others just like yourself it definitely would’ve made our first year just that little bit harder.

The reviews we have received from people Australia wide have been very positive and people are already asking where and when the next one will be held. We look forward to holding the event in 2011 and hope that you too would like to be a major part of the next!

We have no hesitation in recommending yourself and business to anyone within the VL community and abroad. Till then speak soon and we wish you well with your business enterprise.

PS. Your display at the Nationals was beyond belief. Top job mate!

Regards Steve

17-05-10, 19:16

25-05-10, 19:25

25-06-10, 16:35

These are really well made and having a good look at it you can see you have gone the extra mile to make them faultless!

Anyway here is some pics for those interested.

02-07-10, 12:03
I will take one of those 3 gauge 2-5/8 gauge holders, they look trick!!!!!!!!!

Brushed satin non polished please.

+ postage price to Brisbane & your bank details please!



hey any chance you can do those radiator covers brushed satin as well?

10-07-10, 23:39
Hey Buddy me again

I cant remember if i asked you or not as its been a while,

Did you do or can you do an intake pipe from the standard turbo to the standard air box with no AFM?

17-07-10, 16:18

just some of mr vls work

20-07-10, 00:25
I was wondering can you PM me a price on a radiator & fuse box cover. Also does the fuse box cover clip on?

21-07-10, 14:17
With those airboxes, are you able to make them so that they sit further forward, and shaped so they fit in the corner more?

And would you be able to ship to NZ?


26-07-10, 10:04
Cheers bud, I just thought it would look nicer if it was tucked right up against the front of the support panel, so the gap is a lot less, but looking closely at the pic up there ^ I can see that its already very close to the corner. They still look mint tho :) I will get into contact with you more towards the end of the year, when my finances are (hopefully) better :P


26-07-10, 20:52
Free bump for the brushed gauge holder.

---------- Post added 26-07-10 at 20:53 ----------

P.S - I was err venting my boost gauge with my mouth to get the needle back and that's why the fluid is a little low. Didn't expect it to come out that hole lol.

06-08-10, 16:50
Received my radiator cover & fuse box cover today. Quick postage, excellent quality, package well & mirror finish. Very very happy.

Here are some better pictures of it. _n.jpg

Wouldn't mind a PM for how much fitting the fronts cost. I got 2 vt ss seats sitting at home, tossing up the idea of throwing them in, but the rails confuse the hell outta me.

Do you do the trimming too?

29-09-10, 16:33
The front needs the vl rails to be welded on as the vt rails dont line up with the holes on the vl and the trimming was done by Art Trim

Heres a photo of the radiator cover on mine... looks hot to trot... and also some free advertising for Brightline on my daily sh1tter _n.jpg n.jpg

29-09-10, 17:10
The front needs the vl rails to be welded on as the vt rails dont line up with the holes on the vl and the trimming was done by Art Trim

That explains why I stared at them for a whole day trying to work it out.

Well, then I guess I really want that pm now

Patch, your car is turning into rolling sex

29-09-10, 23:33
Hey mate im after one of them sick!! heat shields!. but with my setup i have a waste gate in place, would u be able to make a hole in it and customize it for my setup. This is my setup at the moment

30-09-10, 15:12
Patch, your car is turning into rolling sex

I (L) you Robbo

30-09-10, 22:48
Thanks for the mension Liam, it was my pleasure helping out Street Commodores and Cruise for Charity, I'm sure Brightline will have something to do with C4C again in 2011.

Thanks for the plug Patch :-) the radiator shroud and sticker looks great!

KING3L- I have fitted up many late model commodore seats into VL's, you are looking at around $350 (drive in, drive out fitted.) other aftermaterket seats like recaros etc are the same, however fitting some seats like WRX seats into a VL (yes i know its looked down upon, and it's not my first choice of seat) are a little bit more as there is a lot more time involved in modifying the seats and and the VL rails to make it all fit correctly.

RB30ET - I have sold a few heatsheilds to guys that are running aftermarket external wastegates, all you have to do is holesaw the sheild to suit the size/positioning of your gate once you get it.

12-10-10, 11:49
hey bud is there much of a wait on the products? im picking my car up in two weeks from melb and will def be fitting most of your gear to it, just wondering if i should order now or not? thanks mate, p.s where are you located ? im in the shire, thanks again.
