post this up in the VL Turbo Discussion area and you should get a few ideas.

RB30DET, you work for AATEC right? Do you ever do callouts to fix photocopiers in Maryborough? Our new one has a AATEC sticker on it...

wide bay tafe. at the maryborough campus. photocopiers make me so angry sometimes.. haha.

anyway, so is your VL really an RB30DET? have you got an rb20, 25 or 26 head on it?

a friend from gladstone was trying to sell me an rb20 twin cam head for mine, but i've heard its not really worth doing the conversion unless you at least go for the rb25 head..

yer i remember Phil, not exactly sure what the best time to rock up is yet.. will have to wait til they tell us when the gates open for the entrants. I think it will be as big if not bigger than powercruise 2, so if ya want the best trackside campin spot ( turn 3 ) then get there as early as possible

whats your new car??
