My slt Build

Hi guys,i recently joined the forums after a mate got me into vl's when i moved over here from England after living in South africa all my life...

I really got in to vl's after seeing how many rwd turbo cars there is in WA and was going to buy a ford escort 1600 or 2l sport to convert into a 5spd turbo...but the vls just made alot more sense..

So i bought a really SH**ty white 5spd with a mssively rusted out chassis,which i eventually ended up swopping for a set of Vz SS 18'' rims mattblack with tyres.

I saw the vl FS outside someone's house and picked it up for a bargain...but the head was in poor condition and cracked not long after getting it licenced...so i started hitting the forums and after a few stops at alot of the very helpful CT boys i got all the parts together and the car is currently getting put together by the guys at grgich performance.

Here's some specs:

-genuine A8 motor with "secret squirrel" cam
-turbo auto box
-turbo tailshaft
-vlt intake
-3'' turbo back with hi-flow cat and 45deg stainless steel dumptip
-Lowmount t04e turbo
-????? injectors
-FMIC and tranny cooler
-Chrome rocker
-Malpassi blacktop
-DRIFT BOV & Fuel pressure gauge
-microtech LT8
-pursuities with locknuts...just incase
-super low springs
-DRIFT saturn series gauge
-some speakers here and there

will post pics up soon

hey paul sent you a txt...as far as i understand the injectors are 0.8 ohms. Wired in parrallel it makes them 0.4 ohms per bank at the computer.

when i emailed microtech they said they can load new injectore drivers on the ecu but it will cost upwards of $295 plus $70 p&p
