My supercharged V6 VS Acclaim

Any members of Street Commodores here have probably seen my VS around before, it's my little budget blaster and has so far done me real well.

Still just a stock Ecotec base with 250,000 kays, I flog the living guts out of it and has always come back for more. Here is a link to some fun at the latest Powercruise in Sydney, with some off the brake 2nd gear powerskids:

So far she has made 211rwkw, but worn valvesprings looks to be robbing some top end grunt. It made 196rwkW with just the bolt on Raptor kit, even without an intercooler on only 6psi so I think the car has a bit left in her yet. A 1 bar (14psi) pulley is not too far away

Anywho, where is a list of work done to it so far.
