V8 87 Vl Executive

Hey everyone I just recently got a VL in august. I have looked around various forums and Vl groups and what not, I found this one so I decided to post a few pictures up.

Here Goes

Features
It has a stock 5l engine auto trans
Extractors, Two Half inch exhaust with a 3" tip
17" rims
The springs have also been chopped (this was done by the guy I got it from)
3 Clarion Amps in the back. 12" pioneer sub, 4 speakers in the back 2 pioneer 2 Orion. 2 pioneer speakers in front with 2 tweeters

Replaced the stock steering wheel, I dont have that Woodgrain one anymore either threw that way soon as i could. Il have to update the picture of the new one when i get some time.

Has a really really bloody dark tint on it, still legal but makes night driving fun
.
Future Plans

I plan on replacing the stock air filter with a bolt on k&N one and replacing\
the springs so that it doesn't scrape the **** out of the wheels when people are in the back or going around a corner to fast. Maybe add a body kit and hood scoop.

Hey haven't updated this in awhile, just listing a few more things that I have done over time,


Replaced The stock airfilter/cleaner
Added seat covers,
Changed the Steering wheel,
Bought Calais Pop Ups (gotta paint and fit them)
Wired up a LED In the Boot

Put the tip on the muffler back,














Current plans are to maybe add a walkinshaw hood, and one of the front spoiler kits, but still unsure really, And later down the track im thinking of dropping either a ls1 or ls2 in.

Cheers for the comments guys justfkmat i got it of ebay suprisingly it had paint on it already so had to sand it back and get it painted, the letterbox grill is actually pretty fun to fit, bit of frustration but its good, Lebvlt, yeah that sounds good its my plan do do her up abit, just all about $$$ though, i guess for the same amount of money i could spend on the old school set up i could get a ls1/2. Il be deleting that calais badge to when it gets painted, so if anyone wants it give us a yell,

Looking good, nice to see another VL 8 getting around still. Lucky for you it's got headers already. Mine didn't, and what a pain to to fit them, especially on my own. Well worth it but, sounds heaps better.

Yeah could be a consideration, im still learning about the vl only got it in august, like if you want to know how to make rockets and smoke bombs and all that cool stuff i can help. but still learning with the cars, but its a good journey none the less, so would that cam belt drive and gear drive help with adding a little more kw?

. Yeah btw mat, keep looking around now and then a few pop up just takes awhile, but ive seen a few now days. good luck!

mm the cam sure would yes, looking at maybe a 50hp increase depending on which 1, belt drives just sound cool give u that whistle of a supercharger effect

Also is a picture of the new donk that will be going into the vl in the near future. Needs a little clean up but should be looking groovy soon.

looking good man!!!

It looks fairly straight too....

Should go well with the injected 5 Oh in it... Dont forget how light VL's are... you dont need tonnes of power to make them go and the 8 will have a bucket load of torque with some minor head and cam work!
