Felany - My VL turbo

Hey all,
This is my vl that iv'e had for about 2 years now, which I brought from perth. It is an original manual, original turbo SL.
It had 130 000km when i brought it and already had a few mods, since ive had the car iv'e done a few mods such as a bigger intercooler and external gate.

Current mods:

Motor -
Stock internals
Avo stage 2 cam and adjustable cam gear
Holset of a series 4/5 rx7, looks like a t04 though
3inch turbo back zorst wit one muffler, no cat
38mm external gate with screamer pipe
Hybrid front mount with AFM in piping
JD custom plenum
XF throttle body
10mm top gun leads
14 inch thermo fan
White nissan rocker cover
Adjustable fuel pressure reg
Catch can
Battery in boot
Apexi AVCR boost controller

Driveline -
DBA slotted rotors
Rebuilt and shimmed up LSD
4.11 diff gears
18 inch VT GTS rims or
15 inch black interceptors
Lowered Eibech Springs and shocks
Adjustable pan hard rod

Body -
2 pac white paint job
new headlights and indicators
new front bar and trims
berlina tail lights and garnish

Interior -
Retrimmed seats with VT commodore material
Rear venetian
Basic stereo wit sub
2 spitfire gauges
Autometer A/F gauge
Custom trimmed and boxed boot

Fuel/ECU-
Stock for now

Future mods -
ECU eithier haltech or microtech
GTR injectors
Bigger fuel pump

This car made nearly 220rwkw at 12psi with stock ECU, Pump, Injectors and reg. But was leaning at anything above 14psi. which is why the next thing i need to do is upgrade the fuel system.

Any comments on the car are welcome
Here are some pics but i will add some more pics later on with the 18's once i buy new tyres for them,

Bit of an update, just added a JD custom plenum, xf throttle body, 10mm top guns, apexi avcr, and put the battery in boot. Also got my rims resprayed and new tread.
Next mods will be to respray the engine bay, respray the window surrounds in black, little bit of rust cut out and maybe add some bonnet gauges, there is a pic below, excuse the dirty engine bay, needs a good scrub ay, will post up some more pics in daylight with rims later on

Just added a set off HID headlights, got some 8000K brightness ones, mounted the two ballast boxes in the bay behind headlights, looks sweet at night

Update time -
Well at the start of november i finaly decided i better start fixing the rust on my vl, the paint is actually pretty good but the windows havent been sealed properly and there was rust bubbles all along the windows.
I've removed the front and rear windows and had all the rust cut out and plated as well as the battery tray cut-out and a few holes in the bay welded up.

Couple pics of rust before and after -





Also got a new bonnet (old one has dent), painting bay, new boot ( old one has holes from wing i removed), and getting a dent fixed in fender. So basically im painting about %50 of the car.
Going to do some more mods to motor aswell whilst body is getting done, so i've made myself a list below, which im currently finding/byin at the moment

Haltech or microtech ecu
14mm o ring fuel rail with 650cc injectors
Bosch 044 and bosch 040 fuel pumps
Garrett 35/40 low mounted on stock manifold
new cooler pipes
Adjustable fuel reg, turbosmart or sx i spose

Aiming for around 450rwhp so should be good when done, will get some more pics up soon once the bay is stripped ready for paint

Well bout time I got around to doin an update so here it is. Last two months have been really lazy with it and haven't done too much but I am getting stuck back into it now.

Stripped the interior/ dash and pulled the fuse rail and loom through into the interior and goin to mount that in the glovebox, with a catch can in old spot of fusebox. Still need to weld up old holes from aircon and loom in the firewall but got old cooler pipe holes welded aswell as a few others. Front and rear window holes have had all rust cut out. Also got a new front window seal and trims.

All the front nosecone and chrome trims around windows are off, still need to source a new quater window surround though. About to take the fenders off to put the headlight looms through them to hide them.

I brought a gt3540r (0.7 front, 0.82 rear) and all braided lines for it off of JNR-GMH on these forums. Welded two 10mm spacers together to get the turbo to clear everything and got some longer studs.
Also got a haltech E8 with full loom ready to go of another user on here and that will all be getting put in once the paint is done.

Removed all the power steering and stuff today.
At the moment the block/head is just sitting in the bay, just need to source an engine crane to get it out and then it is basically ready for paint.
Sorting out a fuel system at the moment, goin to get an 040 internal and 044 external pump along with a billet rail and 660cc siemens injectors.

Couple pics below -

Haltech -


Car as it is now -


Turbo as its goin to sit -


Spacer plate -


Tail light rust removal -
