cool came up nice damn cooler pipe dramas lol I thought that my bov was stuffed but turned out that the pipe had come off the back of the turbo join so I fixed it and now another one has come off

on the plus side I picked up a nice set of 6 x 9 s yesterday and eliza bought me some 6 inch splits for christmas and my old man got me an Alpine head unit for christmas so I went in and got the cable to plug me ipod in too so hopefully it will be all in on the weekend no more listening to fuel pumps throught the non existant parcel tray lol

PS

Does anybody have a non power mirror drivers side mirror that they want to part with ? I don't need the actual body of it I just need the mirror piece.

Don't disrespect the VL's. They are sick like. I still get excited when I see a nice one. Or nice VK or nice VH. Speaking of which, this tidy as white VK Group A SS drove past yesterday, followed 5 minutes later by a blue VK Group A SS, which was equally tidy.

Also, don't make the change to an R33, they are ghey.

I think there's 1 in the shed Jay. Speak to Matt about it but, it's his.

Jason.

GET A VE GTS! HOLY FARK, they are so rad.

Yeah, VL's are frustrating as, I love them and all. Maybe, I'll own another one when I can afford to do a full ground up rebuild, in years to come.

Or swap the VX R8 Clubsport for a mad VL like VL2DY4, HATE-IT, etc etc.

Jason.

hey boys lol good and bad news the red vl went in for a road worthy list and basically it is in need of a lot of work lol pretty much the whole rear end bushes and trailing arms need to be replaced and the shocks need to be done too I have never seen a rear end sooo stuffed needs a bit of front end work too and the rear tail light loom is shagged not to mention the seized wiper motor ! lol

Anyways what that means is that me and deano are wrecking it so I will have a full turbo conversion including front mount and I will also have a full manual conversion too so if anyone is interested I also have a nice engine it has been reconditioned and has a cam apparently lol lots of bits and pieces I will write up a list on the weekend once we have pulled it all out ok kids.

That sucks Matt. You guys put so much effort and hard work into that car.

Haaa, nah, it was pretty rad. Matt is probably interested in the turbo setup, I know he just wants something turbo or V8 before these news laws come in, in July.
