Stve Orders seems to be the only wreckers i the state that has vlt engines because he buys every damaged vl that comes up for sale. There is the occasional one that pops up in the tradingpost.

Don't want to bad mouth the place but I'll never buy anything for my VL off him again.

know im paranoid, because i was going to get a RB30ET off him that he had advertised in the trading post.
by the way, has anyone seen my VL around hobart, it is a stock maroon coloured berlina, usually with an L plate up ;). if any of youse see me around come and say hi, because i am new to the scene.

settle down champ.
the Tassie threads hardly get any action so when someone posts something it usually goes on to other things. No need to snap.

10-11-04, 13:22
haha yea, call some wreckers or look in trading post if u want a motor, surely u can handle that urself? u only asked us 4 some help, n we did our best, if ur still having trouble ask again politely, i knwo some1 who can get u an rb25det cheap if your intrested. and wats wrong with tassie? once uve done a bit of travelling ull realise tassie is a great place.

i wasn't snapping either i was just reminiding u guys b4 u all forget about me. how much is this motor,with or without the turbo, is it a complete motor and more to the point how much.

mmm dunno mate hes a local guy, dont knwo him 2 well, his name is damien williams, he's always on about how he can get everything cheap as hellll. hes always building custom cars, and always importing. he told me he could import me an r33 skyline halfcut for $2500 delivered 2 my door (which im pretty sure is a bloddy good price!) back when i was thinking about converting my n/a.

his number is 0405498429, tell him andy (dont know if he will remeber me) gave u his number, n sed u could get cheap halfcuts a while back, n ask him if he still can. im pretty sure he can, still but i dun wanna sound like a cokhed givin out his number u know?

assuming your converting an n/a, it is a big job mate, u put a turbo motor in ur car it will eat ur trans and diff up very quickly (depending how you treat them obviously). then u have the problem of sh*t brakes. a nice brake setup will set u back $500. and dont forget suspention either. it would b a great project tho, just cost u a bit in the end, talk to devl25, im assuming he's done it!

sorry for the long post guys.

For brakes: send CHAMRA1 a PM, he'll do you a great deal on a VT twin piston brake setup for roughly $500 delivered. Also recommended to use a VLT master cylinder with this setup, can be found second hand for $50-$100.

Haha Thanks mate ;) . I was at work, just parked it closer to the road so people would see it. I've had heaps of interest, still hasn't sold though. Not sure if I'm ready to see her go to tell you the truth.
As for prices on 18"ANZ Matriz rims. I paid about 2K last year with decent tyres. You can get them a lot cheaper than that now.
