Walesy's cherry black WH Caprice

Make / Model: WH Caprice series II
Colour: Cherry Black from the VS HSV era with a fair bit more metalic thrown in
Bodykit: no way!
Engine Type: 5.7ltr LS1
Engine Mods:FAST 92mm manifold,Holley 90mm throttlebody,Higgins Alloy OTRCAI, maffless tune,25% underdrivin balancer
Power:344.7rwhp
Exhaust: hurricane 1 3/4 tri Y extractors, hurricane hi flow cats, twin 3in pipes (no X pipe) twin hotdogs dumped at the diff (i made it myself)
Gearbox: stock 4l60e
Diff: 3.45 (temporary). waiting for 3.9s to be put in, i got em at home just been lazy
Brakes: standard size, slottoed rotors
Suspension: Lowered with super low king springs up front and ultra lows out back, shortened shocks in rear.
Wheels: 20x8 zenzetti heirs.
Interior: standard caprice creame leather woodgrain has been tinted so its almost black
Stereo: not a car audio fan but still have a clarion dvd headunit in it and some sub and amp, to be honest it hardly gets used, the twin 3in pipes are music to my ears :-D

Other Mods:"angel eye" LED ring headlights, tinted taillights, arieal hole deleted, debadged all except the caprice stand up bonnet emblem, red hsv center caps on wheels (ill be getting rid of them and replacing them with caprice ones), 20% tint, guards have been rolled

Future mods: *the engine needs a rebuild which is what im saving for now, i have 2 ideas in mind but im not going to commit to either idea until i have the 20k as a start base,

idea #1 rebuild it as a high comp 383 with SRE tunnel ram manifold (twin filters out the bonnet = PORN!)

idea #2 rebuild the 346 low comp for a t51r LS1 single turbo kit

* gearbox wise depends on what engine combo i go with for the 383 ill go a manualised T400 and for the turbo ill go with a t56 6speed manual and tripple plate button clutch.

*also been thinking to put a pink pearl through the cherry black to REALLY make it pop

anyway thats most of the details heres some pics and a couple vids aswell








SOME PICS BEFORE I PAINTED IT

haha yeah slicks and front runners, only ran a 13.1 so slicks were kinda overkill but i picked em up cheap and it was better than spinnin the 225 street tyres off the mark
