New to the scene - my 88 vl turbo

hay , im from mandurah just brought my first vl turbo wanted one since i can remember , i want to get into the scene but know no one , was hoping i cound meet a few people on here

this is my car....








there is alot of work still to complete on the body , i want to get it resprayed and all new plastics as the ones on it atm are a bit shab ,needs a set of wheels too , interior needs some work too i plan to do a full re trim.
On the motor/drive train side its pretty much done ? with A built rb30et (apparently done by sikem wrex racing) , ford C4 box with a 4000rpm stall , full spool vl turbo diff the thing is set up for the strip but its easy enough to putt around on the street the motor is freshly built so its still tuned safe 8psi with a 6000rpm limiter , going to get it tuned pretty soon thou after i get some wider wheels as chasers dont quite get enough traction on boost haha just waiting for moola$$$
hopefully i can meet some people that know a bit about vls and go cruising and do other things vl turbo boys do haha

Im to embarrassed at the moment panel and paint is a bit of a discrace looks like a $1000 bomba missing bits and pieces everywhere !

yeah i got it from a guy called ross in secret harbour , he said not many people had seen it befor ? Got no idea on power not much atm caus of the tune ?ross claimed it could make 500+hp on high boost but I guess ill find out oneday ? Its got very similar work to cars making around the 400 mark so i know it should be roughly around that figure with a bit of boost and a good tune. I was looking for a sorta stock vlt so i could build it up my self but when i seen this everything was pretty much exactly how i would of built it anyway , so all the hard real expensive work was already done so i thought screw it ill buy it !

looks likea nice pick up and you get to make it your when you do the bits and pieces you mentioned.

Some nicer tubing on those breather hoses would look a bit less agricultural, but other than that engine bay looks a treat.

agree with the ag breather hoses haha need something a little more ummm non agricultral haha the engine plates say LW5 which i belive is the code for the RB30ET so if thats correct then its genuine turbo ? I am still unsure what model it is thou , not calais , Bt1 or berlina ??? According to the model code it was an executive ? Anyone heard of an executive turbo ?

---------- Post added 28-07-10 at 10:03 ----------

internals i know about from receipts are ...
Arias forged pistons , h beam rods , custom grind cam , head has been machined , ummm thats all i can remember off the top of my head ?people i talked to said its fully built , he did a propper job of it. He built the motor to handle 25pound safely ? I guess ill see when i get there haha dont really plan to go high boost too soon anyway needs a few fuel system and ignition upgrades befor that will happen oneday haha

Nice VL mate. Should be pretty quick with that turbo. Yeah the model code should say VK which means SL/Executive. All models came out turbo i.e SL, Executive, Berlina, Calais.
