How's the 6L go Brad? I wanted one but couldn't get the extra $$$ I needed to step up. Still very happy with what I have. Just need a buyer for the VL and I can start the upgrades.
Goes great for what it is.

OTR, VY HSV 4-1s, twin 2.5 and a twin plate clutch..

Makes 355rwhp and will smoke the tyres in 3rd if you get off the clutch at 6k.
I'm happy with it, going to throw some 4.11s in there soon because the gears wind on for way too long, close to 180ks in 3rd, should be doing that in 4th lol

What ratio are the current gears? Is it LSD? Been offered a diff with 3.45s but it's not LSD so I'd have to get them swapped into my diff. Bit of a hassle.
I'll be happy with whatever my car puts out once I do my planned mods. I won't get too silly with it.

The reason I barely bring my VL turbo out is because te Newcastle police are onto VL's big time nearly everytime I bring it out and they see me te turn around to pull me up!!! Over having to leg it

Been doing some research, thinking I'll look at 3.7's with the auto, if I do change diff gears at all. Apparently 3.45 isn't that much different.

I didn't even know it was illegal to own a VL in Newy.
Is there more to the story?

Yeah it was Blake's old VL. Didn't need a great deal done to it when I bought it, only thing it really needs now is a respray and it should be good for a while until the motor gets tired. I think that's all the new owner has planned, he's keeping it pretty much as is, just a tidy up and paint. Loved the note once I got around to doing the headers and exhaust.

Another VL lost it's life over the weekend. Dumped at the Kotara end of the Charlestown bypass and burnt out. White, no idea what luxury level etc as it was completely ruined from the windscreen area back.
