4BangN's VL 5 Speed

this is just some pics of my vl 5 speed , sort of a projct car , cant exactly afford to do a turbo conversion but i am looking to do some minor work to it to make it a little faster , just like throttle body and cam , extractors ext.

tell me what you guys think of it plz... and what little things i should do to it,
its also getting lowered and darker window tint very shorlty.

Also its a converted 5 spd , so it still has the auto diff which is good for winding out in the gears even tho its only a 15-16 sec car which beats vn's and others.

might i add im only 17 and going for my license next week .. this is my first car and im already in debt about 11g for my motorcross bike, CRF250 which i race , so car is going to be a slow project because the bike is holding me back

Looks tidy mate.

Be careful how dark you go with your window tint as there is a limit on how dark you can go before you cop a fine and a canary.

Automatic and manuals had the same diff ratio, so effectivley same diff.

Definatley do the window surrounds in black, will break up the colour a bit better.

Also the silver strip on the lower section of the car, get it repainted up to the top of the door moulds.

Mate if you can afford cam + extractors then you can afford a VLT conversion.

As long as you do the work yourself and shop around for parts then you should be able to get away with a cheap conversion for around $1000.

There are lots of us QLD boys who are willing to help you if you get stuck.

Other than that dump it on it's guts and put some nice silver chasers on it and it will be a tuff looking VL.
