My Black VLCT

Hey guys.

I bought a OG Black Calais, With a genuine turbo motor dropped into it.

The exterior is good condition, No scratches or dents.

Has been lowered over king springs with stock polished Calais rims & full chrome trimming around the whole vehicle.

Interior has been re-trimmed with VT seats, using VL Calais material (cream/beige).

Transmission is a normal N/A box with a 2500 Hi stall converter.

Engine is a different story. It has a front mount intercooler, Hi Flow T3, AFM is located in the Cooler piping, Dose pipe, Boost Tap.

With all them goodies bolted onto the engine, it has totally wrecked the internals. The head is blown/cracked, pistons have massive blow by so bad that the car runs slower then a N/A at the moment. I am currently have an engine being rebuilt and should be ready in a few weeks.

Here are some photo's of my car:








Will post updates as I do mods etc.

Alot more progress guys. Thanks to Lockie once again .
Engine has been put together, and dropped in.
All that needs to be done now is top half of the Inlet manifold, and connect the loom

The recon'd head.


Motor all put together.


Waiting on Injectors (tomorrow), manifold to be bolted up, and loom connected


Thanks all.

Black looks a treat. What happened to the motor? Did you slap the owner and keep him in the shins?
