Vl Gtr

Hey everyone! Long time VL van, first time CalaisTurbo.Com member. Here is my VL i recently picked up, it is my second VL Turbo, i owned a Purple Walkinshaw copy VLT a while back.

Plans are to tidy it up, list includes new door and boot seals, finish off the dash, new front seats (if anyone in Brisbane has a set of Calais front seats, PM me), want a set of 19's or maybe 20's for it, so will sell the Walky's soon enuff. Going to do an air intake and clean that **** up, replaces all the hoses with silicone hoses and braded lines etc etc.

Once that is out of the way, i might take it out for a drift or 2 Any advise/info or parts just shoot me a PM, hope to see some of you guys out on a cruise soon!

Engine: RB26DETT

Exhaust: 3" Turbo back

Suspension: Lowered - Lol its a VL of course its low

Wheels: 16" Walky copies

Modifications: Exhaust, FMIC, 5 core radiator, R33 GTR box, 1 piece tail shaft, VN rear with LSD, VR dash, calais front seats

Stereo Audio / Visual: No stez yet, just loud exhaust and mad flutter

Estimated Power: Bit over a stock RB26?

awesome man, my advice is to get a power fc, fuel pump and up the boost to 14psi, you'll be looking at an easy 300-340rwhp, happy days!

nice car, this sat in my workshop while our auto electrician did the wiring for the VS dash.

has the car been painted since the owner last had it? i remember it with multi coloured panels when he was trying to sell it.

looks the goods with a nice RB to boot.

Yeah mate got a respray since then, just closed doors, no clear - ill respray it myself a bit later down the track, but isnt too much of an issue for the moment. Need to finish the dash off too, and get the speedo hooked up

The tyres rub the rear gaurds over any bump, and they stick out ****in heaps, so i'm 99% sure its got the VN rear setup in it.

Thanks for the comments guys. Started pulling **** appart this weekend to start getting some work done, will get some photos up soon!
