Townsville Talent

I just wanted to start a thread where all the north Queenlanders could describe their cars and write down what sort of mods they have done.
This can help put a car to a name so we can disregard posts from people who drive around in their mates mum's mazda 121.

I drive a white over silver berlina with a calias front, 5 spoke mags and fullBOOST.com sticker. Only had this car for a few months so mods are limited to KEAS stage 3 shift kit and oil cooler, 3" exhuast dump to tip, K&N pod and boosted to 10 psi. I will soon be installing an intercooler and boosting till auto dies or detonation which ever comes first. The auto will then be receiving some of KEAS finest internals. Perhaps some smaller diff gears like 3.7's as the 3.89s in my last VL were a bit too short.

My last car was a project of mine to see what sort of times I could get out of a VL turbo on a budget, doing all the work myself.
The $2000 beast was a na conversion with 9:1 compression. The exhaust was sold to a dude from here. Shift kit and oil cooler were installed. 3.89 diff gears were put in and the spider gears were welded up (i am dodgey). The turbo compressor cover received some porting and polishing. The wastegate hole was opened up on the otherwise standard T3. I modified the standard dump with a screamer pipe which finished at the 3 bolt flange. This was the extent of my exhaust as it was a strip only car. Boost cranked to a 8 psi. Interior was decked out with gauges and a pro ratchet shifter. This ran a 13.8 @ 108 mph fish tailing for the first 60ft and chirping 3rd.
I then installed a fully tricked up auto and 3500 stally but sold the car before I raced it. Test drives were tyre fryers.

VK rb30e. Port and polished head, XF tb, chip, cam, extractors, 2.5" zorst, cai, and a roooted gearbox.

I need higher diff gears. got 3.45 at the moment, and my gears just last way to long. Planing on getting a rb25det head setup soon hopefully. Problem is i will have to get all the stuff like better gearbox, diff, brakes as well. Damn thats gonna cost a bit to do

edit: picture - I have different wheels now but. 17" something-er-others

16th and 17th of July, which is a Saturday and Sunday. Saturday night meeting at the drags, then going from some burnouts after, then to a firends house for drinks. Sunday lunchtime, meeting up for a cruise. Should be a good weekeend if your interested. Tell your friends to bring their vlts aswell :-)

I was going through lifters and cams within a couple of thousand k's, finally found the fault with the oil pump which was intemitantly bypassing oil but wasn't showing up as low pressure on oil pressure gauge, but wasn't delivering enough oil to lifters, only found it when we were puting the great cam LukeVL supplied me in, andfired the engine up and no pressure, fixed the valve and she all good now,
But now that I have either stuffed the head gasket or cracked the head due to thermostat failing, I'll have to wait a little bit longer till more boost

What kind of oil pump have you got now? I've got a r32 gtr oil pump on my beast so hopefully I shouldn't have similar problems.

Did Bob take a heap of ignition out top end to stop detonation? the power curve gets a bit 'hows your father' after it peaks
