yeh interior came up nice, think ive changed it 3 times now lol no more though cos i hate pulling it all out. glove box looks good in real...kinda looks apart in the pic but suits it well with the velour roof and door trims. got all white led lights for interior lights from kmart..make it look new at night...hate those yellow old blubs. this car is all home job too

hey mate, cheers :P yeh the seats were to wide, had to cut and redo back seats and also had to get a vl passenger spacer from a series 2 seat to make it level for the vn passenger seat and also cut and drill a new hole for drivers side to fit. dont think i will be spending anymore on this vl

wouldnt mind giving this thing a go and i thought i spent a bit on mine. lol.

May i ask why you are putting on bigger fuel pumps, injectors etc. I have all standard ones in mine and ive been told im getting plenty of fuel into the engine!! Good for 180rwkw's.

well i looked at my power graph reading and realised my air to fuel ratio was dropping beneath 11 to P. at around 3500 rpm my engine was leaning out ( right where the cam came on) and i drove it like this until it leaned out far to often and blew out the 3rd intake valve (due to overheating from not enough fuel being squirted on the intake valve which isn't heat tempered like an exhaust valve...... as you would know) look at your power graph and make sure you don't suffer like i have. took about 5 thousand k for the problem to surface. anyway if you have about 180kw @ the wheels i would love to know how you did it..... perhaps on shoot-out mode on the dyno. but 222cs injectors (which come stock on rb30e's) are only good to a max of 150kw. so ask me again why i have opted for bigger. i right back efter tuning to advise of power readings
