VL Calais EFI 5L

This is mine and my missus Calais. It's got mild head and cam work and flattop pistons = 238RWHP. It has a T5 box, VL turbo LSD diff running 3.7.0 gears. Also sporting 19" rims with 225/35/19 Hankooks. Also has a full custom stereo, custom paint (Molly orange/brilliant red with gold flake), Walky front bumper.

I have since re-done the carpets in black and plans of re-doing the interior the same as is now but black with silver stitching instead of the blue/grey.

Engine wise we want to put in a 355 stroker kit, C.O.M.E racing twin throttle manifold and cold air induction once I save some more.

Lookin great, I like the paint but it needs the walky door moulds and rear bumper to make the front bar blend in.

Nice overall package. I personally don't think the front bar looks too bad with the rest being stock, but walky moulds probably would look slightly better

New waster bottle and paint the engine/rocker covers red to match the exterior would improve the engine bay 100%

Have a look at my engine bay man, it didn't cost a lot or take a lot of time. But a quick tidy up and it looks heaps better
