True mus but I can't take the mouth piece that you breath into out so it can't be started at all with out it.

Manual conversion and turbo conversion to go on in the next few weeks have all the parts ready to go on except a clutch any suggestions on what clutch to get would be great have been looking at this one on eBay...http://m.ebay.com.au/itm/111171621263?nav=SEARCH&sbk=1
Will post up some interior pics soon and progress with the turbo/manual conversion.

theres end clips that go on them. try to chase some down it'll stop the snapping happening again. its a nice car but i hate when you see a nice car ruined by bad gauge placement or a coke bottle and garden hose catch can.

Nice vl man but I have to say...

Driving without a bonnet while taking pics is not doing vl owners and car enthusiasts any good.

Also you might want to think twice about doing a burnout on the opposite side of the road on a blind bend in a shroud of smoke with the setting sun in the opposing traffics face...

just some thoughts that crossed my mined, fair enough fix it up, I just hope it survives.

Thanks for the input turismo prob not the smartest thing to do driving without the bonnet it's just asking for trouble, but I had to get my interlock serviced and was waiting on my forward facing plenum to be finished (hopefully today) I actually pulled up next to a police officer too he wasn't interested in me though must of just knocked off and wanted to get home lol

And bournouts are always a risk unless in a controlled environment like bournout comps which ppl like me would be an embarrassment lol

I also hope it survives has been my favorite vl so far.

Thanks mate, my conversion consists of just mainly all standard turbo gear ie brown top injectors, standard turbo auto computer, have no idea what the turbo is all I know is it's a t4e what ever that means, high mount manifold, turbosmart bov, turbosmart wastegate with screamer 3" dump pipe to high flow cat as my old one fell to pieces, 3" zaust with one muffler at the back, after market fuel pressure reg pumped upto 50 psi. Forward facing plenum to go on today hopefully. That's about it.

Has a unique look.
I like the idea of the T'd breathers, does it work effectively?

I like any thing that is practical but at the same time look neat. Its an art lol

Gotta be one of the nicest turbo vls in the Naturally aspirated section of this forum hehe.

Machine that fly wheel and go easy on the MF5 unless you wanna smash the black box.
Extreme are good clutches for their price. Their HD is supposedly better quality than the equivalent exedy item.

Got the same as yours with a 1,250 pressure suffix going in soon.

Haha it was n/a once upon a time, yeah I've heard good things about these clutches for the price mate has the same one so thought I would give it a go.

Is it a big issue if I didn't get the fly wheel machined as I've already got the box in, and yeah this black box is gonna get a hiding for sure lol
