the car is as it sits when i bought it hasnt been detailed or anything so as you can see well kept,ive decided to go 5.7 now as ive been told its a lot easier and my motor is already cammed so save some $$$ build time shouldnt be to long have running gear etc just need mounts modified loom extractors starter tailshaft etc and a bit more research,so if anyone has parts forsale let me know

BigM22 26-05-13 17:09

Car looks mint man, but imo, keep it white and pleeeeaaassee leave the interior as is, especially because its Madeira red and is rare as all hell

Should be sweet with 6 litre conversion, good luck

Oops didn't it last post, should be sweet with a 5.7 I meant to say

boostn vl 26-05-13 20:34

i thought the red was common,no way im going to change it its in mint condition wouldnt want to ruin it will prob put a stereo in and thats about it

12maneym 26-05-13 21:11

welcome to the red interior club!!, gonna follow this thread, good work mate.

BigM22 26-05-13 21:35

Red interior, especially unfaded is as rare as rocking horse sh!t these days lol

12maneym 26-05-13 21:36

BigM22 26-05-13 21:49

That is unbelievably immaculate, love the red interiors

boostn vl 26-05-13 22:03

thanks for all the positive comment going to try stick with a stockish look will be getting dumped and tints maybe a set of white wheels,just finishing of a vy/z ss ute i have been working on for a while then will be starting the vl

boostn vl 30-05-13 18:40

chasing conversion parts still and can anyone confirm if vy hsv headers will fit

capssy 30-05-13 20:00

no late model headers will fit unless your using the cast headers to make up a turbo kit

Stock_87 31-05-13 09:29

That's a nice example, im looking forward to following this progress. Maybe leave the radio if you want. I got a cassette that connects to your phone to play music in mine, it's ok.

vin-vlt 31-05-13 09:37

the 6L sounds so much beafier than the 5.7L. Put a cam in the 6L anyday would sounds so tough.

jetsonrac 31-05-13 10:43

i know the vn 5 litre kframe goes straight in no worries, so i couldnt see why the vs one would be any different, should be pretty straight forward conversion.i know the transmission tunnel will need to be massaged a bit if u are going to be putting a turbo 700 behind it

boostn vl 10-04-14 22:55

putting t5 in it :)

NASTY1 10-04-14 23:18

vs k frame will fit.

say goodbye to the t5 behind that mtr lol

boostn vl 10-04-14 23:24

t5 has been rebuilt and has been behind this motor for a couple of years already,actually not sure if its t5 or getrag ? vs ss ?,i paid 4500 for complete vs ss selling
rolling shell for 1000 so scored erry thing for 3500 :)
thanks so will vs rack pacemakers radiator and loom suit,also pedal box and tailshaft fit in vl ?
