Bit of an update, just added a JD custom plenum, xf throttle body, 10mm top guns, apexi avcr, and put the battery in boot. Also got my rims resprayed and new tread.
Next mods will be to respray the engine bay, respray the window surrounds in black, little bit of rust cut out and maybe add some bonnet gauges, there is a pic below, excuse the dirty engine bay, needs a good scrub ay, will post up some more pics in daylight with rims later on

Amongst that mate, Awesome car :D

Felany 30-01-09 11:31

Just added a set off HID headlights, got some 8000K brightness ones, mounted the two ballast boxes in the bay behind headlights, looks sweet at night :)

Weezy 30-01-09 17:14

I'd wanna slam my breaks on if i was driving in front of you :p

That would drive me crazy.

_Calturb 30-01-09 17:31

Alot of things drive you crazy. Personally love this car, so clean and such good power for the boost level, alot more to come by the looks of things

NATE DOGG 30-01-09 18:14

Update time -
Well at the start of november i finaly decided i better start fixing the rust on my vl, the paint is actually pretty good but the windows havent been sealed properly and there was rust bubbles all along the windows.
I've removed the front and rear windows and had all the rust cut out and plated as well as the battery tray cut-out and a few holes in the bay welded up.

Couple pics of rust before and after -

Also got a new bonnet (old one has dent), painting bay, new boot ( old one has holes from wing i removed), and getting a dent fixed in fender. So basically im painting about %50 of the car.
Going to do some more mods to motor aswell whilst body is getting done, so i've made myself a list below, which im currently finding/byin at the moment

Haltech or microtech ecu
14mm o ring fuel rail with 650cc injectors
Bosch 044 and bosch 040 fuel pumps
Garrett 35/40 low mounted on stock manifold
new cooler pipes
Adjustable fuel reg, turbosmart or sx i spose

Aiming for around 450rwhp so should be good when done, will get some more pics up soon once the bay is stripped ready for paint

bump for updates?

Felany 01-02-10 18:51

Well bout time I got around to doin an update so here it is. Last two months have been really lazy with it and haven't done too much but I am getting stuck back into it now.

Stripped the interior/ dash and pulled the fuse rail and loom through into the interior and goin to mount that in the glovebox, with a catch can in old spot of fusebox. Still need to weld up old holes from aircon and loom in the firewall but got old cooler pipe holes welded aswell as a few others. Front and rear window holes have had all rust cut out. Also got a new front window seal and trims.

All the front nosecone and chrome trims around windows are off, still need to source a new quater window surround though. About to take the fenders off to put the headlight looms through them to hide them.

I brought a gt3540r (0.7 front, 0.82 rear) and all braided lines for it off of JNR-GMH on these forums. Welded two 10mm spacers together to get the turbo to clear everything and got some longer studs.
Also got a haltech E8 with full loom ready to go of another user on here and that will all be getting put in once the paint is done.

Removed all the power steering and stuff today.
At the moment the block/head is just sitting in the bay, just need to source an engine crane to get it out and then it is basically ready for paint.
Sorting out a fuel system at the moment, goin to get an 040 internal and 044 external pump along with a billet rail and 660cc siemens injectors.

Couple pics below -

Haltech -

Turbo as its goin to sit -

Spacer plate -
