Nice car mate,and i think its fairly obvious by your plates that you already have the Modification devil sitting on your shoulder whispering sweet nothings into your ear.

Guys need your help! what should i do with the rear boot strip & sides? I've got a centre garnish new from rare spares but not sure what looks good. Should i paint them GM Satin black then clear them? i polished the boot strip but it scratches way to easy just by wiping them with a micro fibre cloth if you know what i mean! any suggestions maybe even if you have pics of different ones.

cheers!

Chop it up, bomb it the **** out. Nobody cares about your original cross over pipe when you're toasting the rears in top gear on the freeway

Nice to see you back mate. Your other car was one of my favourites. Shame it went missing.

I look forward seeing what you do to this one.

Jan 2015 update!!!!! (with pics )

Hey guys,
I have been so flat out at work ive barely had time to put any updates on here so my apologies but here are a few photos of where its at atm

Here is what ive done with the engine bay!













The rocker cover i got powder coated in the original holden wrinkle red. I powder coated my inlet plenum in a colour similar to MX grey.. which i personally think looks pretty sweet. My exhaust manifold is HPC coated in black aswell as my dump pipe & my turbo rear housing to keep the under bonnet temps as low as possible.







As for the turbo i stuck with the Garrett GTX42R which is a pretty good turbo for street and track




Let me know what you guys think as im all for suggestions i promise i wont take aslong this time with the updates haha
Not long to go now till its complete and running (fingers crossed)
