Will it do it on an the off chance or for a few runs? yea. Will it last and is it safe? no.
Do it once, do it right!

if u wanna potentially kill urself or someone else cause uve decided to be stingy on ur diff then go ahead but i know i wont lol

Quite enjoying your build ans thread.

I think an ls1 would sound pretty bad ass, its what you wanted right? $3200 is on the money for an engine and box, don't see that in a white sl often either? Do it....

You have all the resources bro..... with your skills you'll find a nice VLCT to do up later on.

Legend Work.

Blah, VL turbos are too easy. Gonna stick with boosting it. Ill build another cars in years to come with a fat LS1
Im told RB30 internals are strong but im still not convinced. I mentioned it want to cam it, but with otherwise stock internals hows 350hp at the fly going on my 250,000km old bottom end and head?

Still love some feedback on turboing...

Im at a bind as to what to do with my interior.. i like the blue but my only option would be to put s2 calais seats in it cause SL's are seats are ****. I have considerd going beige.. respraying all of my plastics PROPERLY.. not a 5 min export can job, because itd be too hard to find a new manual surround, sunnies holder and hi rise.. and get some beige leather seats out of a VR-VS caprice/calais and just source some brown berlina/calais door trims and roof liner... Any thoughts or ideas??

Also with the aussie dollar so high im going to get some gauges from america shortly. Autometer, good stuff... nothing cheap is good and nothing cheap is good. But im having trouble finding them in electrical rather then mechanical?

My inspiration...

Wouldnt even mind some VY GTS rims now.
I decided on beige interior now aswell. Looking out for beige VL berlina/calais door trims, sun visors, roof lining and door seals. the rest of the plastics will all be painted and the seats VS stato/caprice/calais ofcrouse.

Started work on the boot layout today

Ive got an exercise book with about 10 pages full or measurements, sketches, ideas and etcccc. Depending on how good this finishes and if people are interested, i may look into making DIY assembly kits.

Template




Timber blocks will be sikalfexed to boot floor and false floor mounted to them. None of this **** with the box wedged in by the floor as ive seen done before, asking for trouble.

The box will be the right size aswell. I had to work out the area of the template (see how irregular it is -_-) Take my subs box cubic feet specs, convert that to meters cubed and find the right width for the box to meet the specs. All done properly
More updates tomorrow as i ran out of daylight!

Fabricated and assembled most of the box today. Decided to use 12mm ply, MDF is rubbish.. corners blow out and it falls apart. Fits pretty well, ill finish it off tomorrow and get it mounted. Once its fixed in i can work around the box and get everything made up and get it in

Thanks for the reply mate, its come a long way.
Yea thats true.. the car gets locked up and and parked in behind gates at night and has a top range alarm/immobilizer/central locking in it. It should be at the top of the list of any modified car imo... Ill pm you about the injectors, cheers.
