W.A 88 Berlina

88 VL Berlina Turbo

After months of hunting around for a half decent vl that hasnt been ****** around with and that wasnt a ridiculous price i eventually found a genuine maunal berlina turbo

She started of her life as a sgio insurance excutives car and was orignally brought new from brian gardner holden dealer ship and had full log book history until it was sold.

I picked her up early this year being the fourth owner it had fair bit of ks on the clock, the paint was pretty **** aswell as the ass end smash and the driveline wise it was in good condition

Mods that had been done:


dodgy cooler piping


ba xr6 cooler



manual boost controller
grouse 4" zorst tip
calais tail lights
15" ceptors
cross drilled rda gold rotors
ecu tune [apparently]
turbo timer
alarm system
old school cd player
6x9 [rear] 6x6 [front]
resprayed white with blue pearl over metallic siver
pod filter

Mods so far:


gktech no holes piping n china spec cooler 600x300x76







polished calais mags
went throught plenty of beer





battery in boot



Bosch 044 fuel pump

The car made 249.1Hp at the rear treads on 14psi
on bp ultimate






Few pics of her










here a few i went and looked at









let me know what you reckon

A genuine 5spd Berlina? Nice buy, I reckon the rims would look better without the mirror look, if they were mine I would put them on the back, jack the car and let the wheels turn while holding some 1200 to dull them.

A few updates ladies n fellas

after being constantly high from petrol vapours i decide to rip my fuel tank
out n have a look


That explains my poor fuel economy

While the tank was out i painted it 2pack gmh gloss black
and my pursuit's 2pack asteroid gloss silver







i then replaced all the fuel lines, filter, lift pump, sender gasket,breather lines, filler neck rubber and joiner



for the gates fuel lines i got them all from hosemart in wangara if you live in perth
breathers 3/16"
overflow5/8"

the internal lift pump was still factory so i replaced it with a peirburg i got off *Sticks* top bloke


after changing all this s*** i get good economy and shes alot more responsive.
