Thats a very good point lol, might just have to run it quietly on standard boost and try not to mince my diff and gearbox.

You'll need two driveshaft loops, and you shouldn't really pay any more than $60 each for them. You need to modify them quite a bit to fit the VL, especially the front one. I think i cam up with a fairly good solution, I can dig out a pic for ya if you want.
That would be awesome if you could find a pic of what you needed to do, would make my life that bit easier !

Today I picked up new 290mm rotors, new wheel bearings and performance brake pads then as I was fitting them found out that my NA calipers cant fit the 290mm rotors under them haha. So i bought some V8/turbo calipers and should hopefully arrive through the week, I'll be picking up some seal kits and will be re-kitting them as well before use

Has anyone had problems with their ignition switch before with VLs? ive had mine apart twice and it fixes itself for a bit but then starts to not start every now and then, thinking maybe its a common fault?
