My Vl project

Hey guys thought id post a thread about my vl.
Bought the car about 2 months ago off a member from this site.
It had a fresh paint job but apart from that was stock standard...hadnt even been boosted. First on the list was a manual gearbox, bought a complete mx7 conversion from SLOW6 and just had to get a pedal box and centre consol.
Next thing on the list was suspension so took it down to my mates at Wilkinsons suspension for all new springs, shocks, all new bushes, adjustable panhard, pretty much everything and got them to roll the guards.
Had a few problems tho because it was so low and once the dropped it off the hoist the tyres were still rubbing, long story short it had a VN diff in it.
Got it home then the week after took it up to Factory RE to get a nice little package done. Fuel system, computer, exhaust, gt35r, FMIC, and a few other things, they also swapping the diff to vlt one with a spool. Was up there on Friday night having a squizz and took some pics so ill post them up if ya want to have a look. It should all be finished by the end of this month and ready for powercruise....ill update pics and video of it being dyno tuned.

wow, 2 paragraphs for alot of acchievements.
pad it out!! wheres the suspense!

haha sounds awesome mate, thats crazy though, sounds like you smashed it all together so quick, but i can tell theres a lot of money in those items there, you've obviously done some serious planning and some hard work to earn that kind of money.

how about some more info though coz im pretty interested, as im undertaking something similar myself. some specs etc of the motor? what computer? specs of the turbo.

sounds like you're putting a nice streeter together, would love to hear more about it.

haha suspense?? im living it until i pick it up!! Hate waiting for it.
Yeh done a bit of research and learnt from other people but i pretty much let Factory RE put a package together and trusted their advise.
The motor isnt being touched until after powercruise, pretty much just doing bolt ons so its a bit more fun for p/c. Then after it will be stripped down and top to bottom rebuild with forgys etc. The computer is microtech LT10S, turbo is Garret gt35r internally gated fitted to the standard manifold using a wedge. Ill post more as it gets put back together.

Factory RE is up in wanneroo just near Wangara.
www.factoryre.com.au
Think a few guys from here use them, Ive seen BOOOSTN up there a few times, was up there on Friday night. They know their **** and have their own dyno etc too.

Update....new motor went in, complete with high mount...turns out id ****ed the turbo at powercruise too so brand new gt35r was replaced!!
External gate and screamer pipe and a few other tweaks...made 353hp on 12 pound at 40degrees in the booth. Took her down to woop ass wed last week and ran a 12.02 so was pretty happy with that for its debue.
Next time ill ran race fuel, race tune and a heap more boost....and front runners....****in thing was all over the place at end of the track with 20's.
Also want to add a cam coz she ran out of pull around 5500rpm
