Brads VLT

Ever since I was 10, I wanted a vl. My old man owned a worked 5spd 5L calais from when I was 10 until I was 14. I loved this car, and it spiked my interest in vl's. About 3 years ago, I was on the net and went to google and typed in vl commodore (probably hoping to find some burnout pics haha, as all young blokes love to see). I came across this site and started reading about vls more and more. Once i knew what a turbo was, I was hooked and it was my number one dream to own a vlt. Now, 16 it was time to buy a car. I was looking around for a month or so and found a clean factory 5spd vlt on these forums.
Drove 9hours each way to wagga to pick the car up for a good price.
Finally! My dream was a reality!



The car came with the following mods. #" dump- 2.5" from cat back, turbo timer, bov, gold simmons FRs, king springs, boost gauge etc. Still running stock boost.



As soon as I got it home, I started looking for parts. I have fitted calais sII seats, berlina door trims and berlina dash lid (none of which are seen in pics).

A week later, I got a full 3" with hi-flow cat and 3" dump tip.



I wanted more boost. I scored a avo stage 1 intercooler off ebay and a GFB boost controller from this site.
Fitted both parts myself and its now running 11psi.



I love the car to death and I can garentee, in the next few years it will have a trick auto, big mofo turbo, big fmic, fuel system, forgies etc looking for 10s



I'm already in the process of looking for a t4 turbo to tie me over for 12 months or so. I've owned the car for about a month now.

Enjoy
